2014 Moto Guzzi V7 Racer on the Total Motorcycle Cool Wall

GENUINE GENTLEMAN RIDER...

Produced in a limited edition as revealed by the commemorative plate on the steering yoke, the V7 Racer is now in its third edition.

It is immediately recognisable: new total black look applied to the side panels, mirrors, silencer support brackets and foot-rest guards.


The result is a dramatic contrast with the shiny chromium-plated 22 litre fuel tank. Staying on the topic of numbers, on the top fairing and tail fairing plates is still the number "7" (which in Moto Guzzi was dear to the 250 world champion Enrico Lorenzetti), but is now chromium plated instead of white. Also new is the single-seater saddle (on request the two-seater saddle with passenger footrests is available) covered with alcantara and imitation leather of the same colour as the customised leather belt with the Moto Guzzi logo on the top of the fuel tank.


Always spectacular is the red frame based on that of the first V7 Sport series with CrMo frame, the result of a special painting process, also applied to the hubs, wheel and swingarm, which enhances the architectural purity of the frame. Also red is the Moto Guzzi wording which now appears on the wheels, exactly as already seen on the latest California Custom.


With its tiny Plexiglas screen above the race number plate, the tail and top fairing - an exemplary expression of the Guzzi school - whose shape resembles the front of the legendary Gambalunga, an unequivocally sporty element in perfect harmony with the design of the front mudguard. Among the most distinctive elements of this special edition is the ample use of brushed and perforated aluminium, superior craftsmanship which characterises the side panels, the throttle body guards and the silencer mounting brackets.


Other premium components include the aft-mounted footpegs machined from solid billets, the lightened steering stem and the steering yoke guard consisting of a double chromed ring, which is so exquisitely crafted that it looks like an ornamental feature.


Particularly satisfying, not only from an aesthetic point of view but also in terms of dynamic performance, is the presence of a pair of WMY01 Bitubo shock absorbers with adjustable spring preload, in extension and compression, thanks to a 12 click adjusting knob.


This is a bike to be ridden strictly alone, in black riding suit, with a skullcap helmet and studded-palm leather gloves.

The Moto Guzzi V7 Racers remains an homage in design to the café racer motorcycles of the 1950s and 1960s, combined with the modern features of an Italian-engineered motorcycle. Featuring a new and more powerful, 750cc, 90-degree V-Twin motor and new lightweight, six split spoke aluminum wheels, the V7 Racer brings together classic style and craftsmanship.

The completely reengineered 750cc engine still relies on the engineering that made the Moto Guzzi V50 a success among riders in 1977. Since then the engine has been continuously updated yet stays faithful to the original genial layout introduced by Italian engineer Lino Tonti in the 70s and stays true to the characteristics of the Moto Guzzi tradition, that touring on a motorcycle at its most pure should be nothing but enjoyable.

While maintaining the classic 90° V configuration, the engine is now comprised of more than 70% new components. Cutting-edge technological solutions have been used to improve functionality, provide greater torque and power even at low rpms, and be more efficient, with higher fuel economy and reduced emissions. The new engine is more powerful and stays true to the characteristics of the Moto Guzzi tradition, that touring on a motorcycle at its most pure should be nothing but enjoyable.

The new tank brings with it a superior metallic construction that allows for a lighter tank along with a greater fuel capacity – the V7 Racer can hold a record 5.8 gallons which, together with reduced consumption, ensures a range of up to 310 miles.

The distinctiveness of the V7 Racer design is sporty and attention-getting in all the right ways. A new chrome fuel tank finished with a studded leather strap, a single-saddle suede seat with an aerodynamic seat cowl and ‘70s-style racer number plates mean the added engine performance is showcased right along with classic style. One look, and a rider will know that the V7 Racer speaks for itself.

The Moto Guzzi V7 Racer, iconic and prestigiously manufactured in Italy, will be available in 2013 in U.S. dealerships.

As with all of Moto Guzzi’s on-road motorcycles, the V7 Racer comes with a two-year manufacturer’s warranty and roadside assistance for one year.

Thanks HYPERR for suggesting this week's VERY COOL wall bike. The AWESOME Moto Guzzi V7 Racer.

New and revised for 2014 model year too. And do look at the US/Canada price, amazingly they are the same (very few manufacturers offer that).

I'm 6'4" tall and fit fine. It's amazing that I do, but it works with my size 14 boots and 34" inseam. :revv:

But then I'm not very bulky...

Giving this one a solid awesome. It's Italian, it's retro looks are so legit, that if the bike time warped back to the '60's it would not look too out of place, its a 750, call me old fashion but there something special about 750's.....all in all, I would not say no to one if offered.
Always ask why.

Well, I could see myself riding one but 2-up is very much a part of my riding life. Plus I gave away my skull-cap helmet and studded palm leather gloves so I would get busted by the Moto Guzzi police for not being pretentious enough to ride one. This bike is ok but the marketing is uncool.

The price being the same in the US and Canada sure is a surprise.

The beautiful chrome tank is almost 6 gallon capacity giving the V7 racer a range of over 300 miles! That alone should give it an awesome rating. :kicking:

I am 6'2" with a 34" inseam and a size 14 foot and I found the V7 to be quite cramped. I don't understand how you can fit at all unless you are sitting back on the pillion portion of the seat. I so wish they made a V7 in a larger size with ABS. I would find a way to put that bike in my garage.

I note that someone gave the V7 a fail.... without any commentary. I can understand not loving a bike, different bikes just appeal to different people, but I just can't image hating a V7 so much as to give it a fail. I would like to know why this bike gets a fail or if it is just some kind of irrational animosity to a bike of foreign manufacture.

Awesome, the more I look at the bike the more you see nice attention to detail. I don't care for the 7 over the head light but that's about it. It would be a great bike for commuting or around town. A 5.8 gallon tank is great you would not have to fill up all the time.

Easy awesome, like all the other V7s. Although my favorite V7 is still the Stone. More comfortable handlebar, two-up seating, simpler, less bling, more practical, not to mention tubeless tires. Plus it's the cheapest :D

I've received news about the new 2015 Moto Guzzi V7 II, (yes, V7 II), will feature "Ducati-like (my words)" riding modes and traction control, and it will have ABS as well as new gearing (featuring a 6th gear as well). AND, Guzzi has changed the peg/bar positioning so it's even more spacious (as they say) for taller riders now.

No news if the engine is the same size...


I've gotten used to the smaller bike I guess, but my knees are just behind the designed sides of the tank and my butt is definitely all the way back (not on the passenger though) of the seat. I've had my wife as a passenger on the V7 as well. It's not the biggest of bikes, that's for sure, but it does work for me and my size. I just purchased the Moto Guzzi comfort seat (OEM) and it allows me to move back another full 1".

I have "rode" the bike on the passenger seat, but it's quite the stretch for me still... lol.

Dudes, you shouldn't be voting anything but awesome! If you have seen this bike in person or ridden this engine you would know why I say this!

This bike is my current dream bike, the one that I would have if I were to own two bikes. The only thing that stops me from getting it right now is that I really like my Ninja for commuting and I am not sure I would want to constantly have to clean the chrome gas tank.

That being said, every single time we visit the MG dealership I get that much closer to buying it...

The engine is AMAZING on every level...

AWESOME to the n'th degree!!!

I wonder what's McGregor's inseam (he's apparently 1.79m/5'10"). His legs seem bent at a pretty extreme angle on the V7 Racer (1:12 sec), and his knees seem to be right on the cylinder heads.

Great photo and a very special bike! I remember when that V7 Racer arrived at MPH Cycles as it was the first one to hit the shores of North America. 8)

The V7 Racer would make a great bike, I know you have taken mine out at times to commute on... With the new 2015 V7 II's, maybe that will be your next bike. :)

The V7 Racer's handlebar to foot peg riding position is definitely more suited to a smaller rider (or shorter legged one). I can't really comfortable ride the Racer vs the V7 myself. Which is a shame as the level or detail and attention to the V7 is darn incredible for a bike of any price point.

2014 Moto Guzzi V7 Racer - Coolness Factor = 92.31%
Featured: September 26th, 2014 - October 3rd, 2014
Most popular vote category: Awesome

Image

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=50059
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... -Racer.htm

Coolness Factor of the 2014 Moto Guzzi V7 Racer is:

Awesome (3 points) 82% [ 31 ]
Cool (2 points) 16% [ 7 ]
Uncool (1 point) 2% [ 1 ]
Fail (0 point) 0% [ 0 ]

= a Coolwall Factor of 92.31%

NOTES: Wow, what a Cool Wall score as the 2014 Moto Guzzi V7 Racer shoots straight to the top of the charts for 2014! Moto Guzzi really has something very unique and very special on their hands at very reasonable price point. With the introduction this week of the 2015 Moto Guzzi V7 II, it will be interesting to see if we get even closer to that perfect 100%. With a 92.3% Cool Wall score, it's almost a duty to see a V7 Racer in real life if you haven't yet at the Motorcycle Shows or at a Guzzi Dealership.

Next 2014 TMW Cool Wall bike is now up for voting on, have fun!
