2015 Moto Guzzi V7 II Lineup to Debut at IntermotThu, 25 Sep 2014
Dubbed the V7 II, the new model family will again be available in three versions, the V7 II Stone, V7 II Racer and V7 II Special. Guzzi’s signature longitudinally-mounted engine returns, but mounted 10mm lower and tilted 4° forward, addressing rider complaints about a lack of knee space. The transmission has been updated with a sixth gear and a more refined clutch for easier shifts.
Other updates include a new dual-channel ABS, traction control, and a seat height reduced to 30.7 inches from 31.7 inches.
The V7 II family will arrive in European showrooms in November. North American consumers will have to wait a bit longer.
