37. MOTO GUZZI V7 III
THE FACTS O 51bhp O 209kg O Seat height 770mm
The V7 is updated for 2017, and our pick of the bunch is the Special, which is so reminiscent of the original V7. The transverse V-twin is now belting out a tame but useable 51bhp, while torque is up to 44.25ftlb. The frame has had some welcome tweaks, too, with more rigidity up around the headstock and revised geometry to sharpen the lazy steering. ABS is standard (as it was already), but the traction control now has two modes to suit different road conditions. You really have to ride one of these little gems to understand its appeal – but be warned that a test ride will most probably lead to a sale.
