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.
