2015 Moto Guzzi V7 II Lineup to Debut at IntermotThu, 25 Sep 2014 00:00:00 -0700
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.
