V7 III Stone, Spe­cial & An­niver­sario

The retro mar­ket is built for Guzzi to ex­ploit and the V7 is the Ital­ian firm’s most pop­u­lar ma­chine. Pow­ered by a trans­verse V-twin, the V7 has been updated for 2017 to meet Euro4 and is now called the V7 III. The ride has been im­proved thanks to new shocks and the clutch made lighter in its ac­tion. If you want a re­ally au­then­tic retro with one of the old­est names in mo­tor­cy­cling on the tank, you can’t go far wrong with this charm­ing bike. The V7 comes in the ba­sic Stone for £8002, the Spe­cial with added chrome de­tails and spoke wheels for £8702 or the An­niver­sario for £9002 with its chrome tank.

V9 Roamer

If you like your Guzzis tra­di­tion­ally styled, the Roamer could be right up your street. Pow­ered by the new V9 mo­tor, it has a very clas­sic look and while that won’t be to ev­ery­one’s tastes, it does have an ap­peal to purists. How­ever the com­bi­na­tion of a 19in front and 16in rear wheel make for quite lazy han­dling and it’s not the most in­spir­ing of ret­ros vis­ually.
