Old Bike Australasia - - MOTO GUZZI V7 • IRON MAX • VEE TWO • JAMES AUCTION -

First seen in 1967, the Moto Guzzi V7 is still go­ing strong and for 2015 fea­tures sev­eral worth­while up­dates. While re­tain­ing the proven 90º v-twin en­gine, the 2015 V7 II has a new closer­a­tio six speed trans­mis­sion, ABS, trac­tion con­trol and re­designed clutch. The en­gine it­self has been tilted for­ward by 4 de­grees which gives an ex­tra three cen­time­tres of leg room. The V7 is avail­able in three mod­els; the V7 II Stone, with al­loy wheels in ei­ther red or black at $14,000 ride way, the V7 II Spe­cial at $14,500 ride away, and the V7 II Racer, which will be avail­able in the sec­ond half of the year with pric­ing to be an­nounced. Also avail­able in March will be a se­lec­tion of ac­ces­sory kits; Dark Rider, Scram­bler, Dap­per and Leg­end. Ac­ces­sories can be pur­chased in­di­vid­u­ally, al­low­ing V7 own­ers to cre­ate their own per­sonal mo­tor­cy­cle.
