ORIGINAL MOTO GUZZI V7 II ACCESSORIES: AN EVER-WIDENING RANGE
In order to facilitate the Guzzista’s choices, different “reference styles” have been identified: very different customisation formulas following your own personal taste and still leaving you with the widest possibilities of creating your own tailor-made V7, selecting your favourite parts from those in the entire range and mixing and matching. In fact, all of the elements that make up the various configurations are available for purchase individually in order to further exploit the Guzzista’s imagination and creativity. Another particularly important aspect is that the elements can be used both on the new V7 II and on the first generation Moto Guzzi V7 which is already on the road all over the world. The new accessories will allow those who have already owned a Moto Guzzi for a few years to change the look of their bikes, renewing it and thereby entering the world of special bikes easily and simply.
For 2016 the availability of accessories for V7 expands even more, providing enthusiasts with new reference styles and still leaving the expert Guzzista with the possibility of mixing and matching. And so new inspirations arrive directly from the sport and off-road world, in addition to a project designed for the female rider.
Project GUZZI CLUBBER: for the sport world new parts are dedicated in full-on cafÃ¨ racer style, such as the top fairing in satin finish aluminium with smoked Plexiglas which blends perfectly with the front lines of the motorcycle, the chromium semi-handlebars with a sport bend and handlebar mirrors made from billet aluminium, also with a brushed finish. A range of components follows this style as well (fuel tank, front mudguard, injector covers, side fairings and tail fairing) made in satin finish aluminium. A new tail fairing becomes an element of unmistakeable style and combines with the premium single-seat saddle and a new rear mudguard. Last but not least, the exhaust can be enhanced by special bends for the manifolds, whereas the set-back footpegs for the rider contribute to a sportier riding position.
Project GUZZI ALCE: the off-road world and Moto Guzzi’s off-road heritage have new increased stroke shock absorbers dedicated to them, as well as dust boots for the fork stanchions and a black handlebar with reinforcing crosspiece. The single seat rider saddle also matches the ingenious and attractive portion of the passenger saddle which can be removed to create more room for baggage. The off-road details continue with tubular engine and leg guards, as well as a front headlight guard. Other must-have features are the exhaust unit that runs closely along the right hand side of the vehicle and the black toolbag that can be positioned on the luggage rack or on the fuel tank.
Project LADY GUZZI: for the lady rider Moto Guzzi dedicates a specifically designed range of accessories. Parts like the fuel tank, front mudguard and the headlamp body are painted in a particular and elegant shade. The lowered one-and-a-half seat saddle is quite handy, upholstered in two-tone leather and stitched in a rhombus pattern. The same material and treatment are also used for the side pannier. The range is completed by a chromium handlebar that is straighter and wider than the standard one, round, short shank mirrors made from billet aluminium, the special pair of horn covers in billet aluminium and the bends for the exhaust manifolds.
Naturally the first four styles recommended by Moto Guzzi that take their roots in the deep motorcycling heritage of the Mandello Manufacturer are still available.
DARK RIDER STYLE: this is the first Moto Guzzi recommended reference style made up of accessories created to give your bike a Gothic look inspired by the night life scene and the city. The inspiration is nevertheless also based on Guzzi and its heritage: simply think of the nickname associated with Omobono Tenni, legendary rider for the Mandello manufacturer in the ’30s, known as “the black devil”. The accessories dedicated to this style include a black aluminium top fairing, aluminium side panels, aluminium mudguards, a black tank with the traditional red Moto Guzzi eagle, and wire wheels, letting you give your bike a blacked-out, but sophisticated and contemporary, look.
SCRAMBLER STYLE: there are many available accessories to completely change the image and profile of your V7, transforming it into a bike that is perfectly suited for use on the road, but with an off-road look and a strong personality. Now there are exclusive high quality aluminium satin finish parts. The high two-in-one exhaust, the off-road knobby tyres, the handlebar cross brace and the off-road footpegs constitute the first step closer to the scrambler world. The long satin finish mudguards, the satin finish number plates the satin finish guards and the long vintage ’70s saddle are the elements that complete the transformation. An extra touch of personality is also provided by the tool bag and the handmade leather side panniers.
LEGEND STYLE: another immersion into Guzzi history interpreted in a modern key. In the ’40s the Moto Guzzi Alce, a bike used by the Italian Army, was characterised by its reliability, sturdiness and great flexibility. The configuration that can be achieved with the parts from the Legend world allow you to reinterpret that extremely fascinating concept. The high “two-in-one” silencer, knobby tyres and olive green fuel tank, side panels and mudguards give the bike a strong connotation and a unique look. The high handlebar cross brace, the black luggage rack, the long saddle (comfortable for 2 people) and the natural leather side bag complete and enhance this configuration which stems more than any other from the Moto Guzzi heritage.
DAPPER STYLE: this includes a range of accessories developed and made to recreate the CafÃ© Racer world that attracted so much attention on the global motorcycling scene. In fact, the leitmotiv of the project is to enhance the ’70s era through the creation of polished aluminium accessories (mudguards, injector covers, guards, number plates) and accessories such as the low semi-handlebar and the single-seat saddle that convey an attractive riding set-up derived directly from the racing world. Last but not least, the vintage design handlebar mirrors reinterpreted in a modern key are another prestigious and exclusive addition.
