2019 Moto Guzzi V7 III Stripes Accessories Kit

Moto Guzzi introduced as a sneak peek at EICMA – the Milan International Motorcycle Show – of a Limited Series of Accessory Kits dedicated to the Moto Guzzi V7III made up of 4 accessories (fuel tank, top fairing, tail fairing and side panels) and available in 3 configurations inspired by as many moods. The Stripes package – with a sporty spirit – pays tribute to Moto Guzzi’s glorious sport racing history; the Black & Red version – in vintage styledraws inspiration from the legendary Dondolino, honouring the heritage of the Mandello-based manufacturer and one of the models that made motorcycling history; the Classic Green kit – with a classic mood – is stylistically inspired by the colour schemes and graphics of yesteryear, reinterpreting them in a modern key.

 

The three kits – Stripes, Black & Red and Classic Green – are a time machine that brings values of Moto Guzzi back to the present.

The first, with the number 29 on the side panels, celebrates the victory of Omobono Tenni in the 6 days of the 1937 Tourist Trophy. The second, drawing inspiration from the Dondolino, reminds us of Moto Guzzi’s glorious victories throughout the ’40s and ’50s in the Swiss and Spanish Grand Prix, as well as in the numerous Italian and French championships. Last, but not least, the Classic Green kit – which takes on the layout of the 1938 GT20 – draws its inspiration from the typical ’30s and ‘40s colour schemes and the graphics of those days with gold threading and a black band reminiscent of the knee guards used on the fuel tanks of that era.  Modern Gentleman Racers will not be able to deny their attraction.

 

Guzzi lovers also have another option to add an extra touch to customising their bike: purchase “raw” (without graphics) fuel tank, top fairing, tail faring and side panels, naked skin on which to ink their own ultra-personal tattoo. The kit can be purchase as a single package or the 4 accessories can be purchased individually. Both the “nude” components and the kit parts are approved – and therefore street legal – guaranteeing maximum quality, safety and compliance with traffic regulations. All of the parts have been conceived, designed and made by Moto Guzzi and they are subjected to strict control test cycles just like any other original part on the bike in order to guarantee a quality and long-lasting product. Since they have been conceived and fine tuned by Moto Guzzi they are perfectly interchangeable with the factory parts, allowing you to easily revert your bike to its original configuration.

 

Those who have already owned a Moto Guzzi for several years can change the look of their bike, renewing it, and thereby easily and simply entering the world of special bikes.

 

The 3 Limited Editions available in 2019 from February (Stripes), June (Black & Red) and November (Vintage Green) can be purchased by reservation at a select network of dealerships.

 

Moto Guzzi has never followed fashion, but on the contrary has always skilfully set new trends. In its glorious, almost centennial heritage, it has often paved the way to follow both on a technical and stylistic level.

Since 1967, the year the first units were sold in Italy, the V7 became a pillar of the product range and the representative of the Italian motorcycle par excellence, standing out for its content and design, highly popular with a truly transversal and varied public.

 

The “seven-fifty” from Mandello has proven to be an excellent base starting point for custom designs, as demonstrated by the success of Moto Guzzi Garage, a design platform – that has come to life both through the dealership network and online at the dedicated website garagemotoguzzi.com – of the new way that Moto Guzzi intends customising in a modern key.

A project that began in 2015, Moto Guzzi Garage primarily involved the V7II, later expanding to the third generation V7, extending this brand new custom philosophy to the entire world of “Made in Mandello” motorcycles.

 

Moto Guzzi focuses more and more attention on the concept of customisation that is innate in the V7 DNA, by extending the range of accessory Kits configured as “style proposals” to direct Guzzisti fans within the eclectic custom world.

2019 Moto Guzzi V7 III Stripes Accessories Kit Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

V7 is one of the most celebrated and well-known Moto Guzzi models. This world fame is due to its ability to remain faithful to the expectations and reputation of a legendary brand like Moto Guzzi. Since 1967, the year the first units were sold in Italy, the V7 became a pillar of the product range and the representative of the Italian motorcycle par excellence, standing out for its content and design, highly popular with a transversal and varied public.

More than fifty years from the launch of the first unit, Moto Guzzi V7 III is the third act of a unique story. The challenge of introducing the V7 III was one of the most difficult, considering the emblem and the success of the V7. From 2009 it has also been the brand’s most sold model and it constitutes the entry level bike in the Moto Guzzi world.

As was the case with the V7 II compared with the first-born V7, for the V7 III the revamping was profound enough to merit a new progressive number in Roman numerals, that has always distinguished the most popular and long-lasting Moto Guzzi bikes. V7 III is the result of Moto Guzzi’s passion, skilfully revamping its best seller, leaving its character and authenticity unaltered, values that are destined to last over time.

 

Seven versions and infinite interpretations

The V7 III family is made up of seven versions: the “patriarchs” Stone, Special and Racer were joined in quick succession by V7 III Rough, V7 III Milano and V7 III Carbon, obtained by introducing a series of special parts capable of giving each one a very different connotation and a unique character. V7 III Limited, made in only 500 numbered units, represents the most recent news in a range which, for 2019, offers aesthetic upgrades on the V7 III Stone, available from next spring also in the “Night Pack” variation, characterised by full LED lights and new specific stylistic details.

The “seven-fifty” from Mandello has proven to be an excellent starting base for custom projects. The original Moto Guzzi accessories catalogue dedicated to the V7 III includes more than 80 parts and is constantly being expanded: V7 III therefore lends itself well to an infinite variety of interpretations to create your own made to measure special, just like a tailored suit.

 

More pleasure to own and ride a V7

The third generation of the “seven-fifty” from Mandello will continue to be the Moto Guzzi entry-level model, easy to ride, with the most contained size and weight in its category, but at the same time with a strong and authentic character, typical of all Moto Guzzi bikes, much of which is shown off by the transversal V-twin engine, a one-of-a-kind configuration. The primary goals that led this evolution had to do with style, standard equipment and performance on the road, in other words, aspects that influence the pleasure of owning and riding a V7.

V7 III keeps the stylistic personality of the model intact, characterized by a design that dialogues through shapes inspired by Moto Guzzi heritage and modern motorcycle requirements. The first impression is that you are in the presence of a mature and sturdy bike, a sensation due primarily to the presence of dual pipe exhaust manifolds and engine heads, both with generous dimensions, but V7 III confirms its status as one of the most accessible and sleekest motorcycles. On the other hand, the metal fuel tank has not changed, with its excellent 21-litre capacity and style inspired, as always, by the one on the magnificent 1971 V7 Sport. Further elements of popular style concern the injector covers and side fairings with their sleek shape. Each of the V7 III versions has a dedicated saddle with brand new graphics and coverings. V7 III Stone, Rough and Carbon adopt a single circular instrument display, in line with their image as essential motorcycles. The Special, Racer and Milano versions, on the other hand, have a second circular display for the rev counter. The speedometer has an analogue dial, while all other information is contained in the digital box: odometer, partial and daily trip (resets automatically eight hours after being switched off), trip time, instantaneous and average consumption, air temperature, average speed and the MGCT (traction control) level, as well as the engaged gear indicator, for which the minimum and maximum rpm value can be adjusted by the user. This way, you can keep a predetermined engine rpm range under control, for example to run in the bike as effectively as possible or to reduce fuel consumption to a minimum. The rider interacts with the instrumentation using the button on the right hand electrical block. The rich catalogue of dedicated accessories also includes MOTO GUZZI MIA, the Moto Guzzi multimedia platform that connects your smartphone to the vehicle, providing an exceptional quantity of information handy for your trip.

 

Chassis: guarantee of quality in Moto Guzzi tradition

Moto Guzzi know-how in designing ultra fine and legendary frame and suspension. The delightful ride of the V7 has its origins in the distant past: in 1970, after a highly demanding series of tests, the V7 Police won the selection to join the LAPD (Los Angeles Police Department) team, demonstrating the Larian brand’s authority on the matter even overseas. The steel frame maintains the double cradle tubular layout and the same weight distribution (46% front; 54% rear) typical of recent V7 tradition; the third generation introduced an entirely revamped and reinforced front end with a different steering geometry to guarantee more dynamic performance on turns, better handling and stability. Particular attention was placed on the painstaking care and finishing of the details, including the welding and paintwork. The rear suspension system relies on a pair of Kayaba shock absorbers, adjustable in spring preload: thanks to their superior quality and the inclination on the fixing point to the frame, they provide a progressive and controlled response in any situation, even when riding two-up. The passenger can count on a comfortable seating position, thanks to the low and forward positioning of the foot pegs. The saddle-handlebar-footpegs triangulation is ideally spaced for riders of any height thanks to the lower saddle (770 mm from the ground) and the correct positioning of the aluminium footpegs.

 

Small block engine: unique character and sound

There are many excellent twin cylinder engines in the world, but there is only one transversal V and it is the Moto Guzzi twin, born in 1967 out of an ingenious intuition by Mr. Giulio Cesare Carcano and characterized by a configuration of the cylinders so particular that it made it an integral part of the bike’s design, like a true modern art metallic sculpture. In the small block version, it has arrived at its third evolution and has been completely revamped with respect to the unit that equipped the V7 II, with the goal of raising riding pleasure to the maximum, as well as guaranteeing higher performance and reliability.

The base in aluminium, stiffened in the focal points, adopts a crankshaft with inertia calculated to return vitality and an adequate engine brake. The lubrication system in the crankcase has been designed to dissipate the heat in the best possible way and to reduce power absorption in favour of both performance and a reduction in fuel consumption. There is also a ventilation system that reduces power loss due to the internal pumping of the crankcase chambers and a reduced capacity oil pump capable of absorbing less power. The oil pump intake duct is new, as is the related by-pass valve and piston cooling oil jets have been introduced that have a flow control and management valve. The alternator cover includes the blow-by gas output.

The changes introduced a year ago also concerned the high part of the engine, with entirely new cylinder heads, pistons and cylinders in aluminium with respect to the V7 II, although the bore and stroke, and therefore the engine displacement, are the same, a choice that confirms V7 III as an entry-level range of motorcycles into the Moto Guzzi world. As per tradition, the timing is controlled by a pushrod and rockers system with 2 valves per cylinder, but arranged in an inclined position (more efficient) in the head. The fuel system is entrusted to a single-body Marelli electronic injection system managed by an electronic control unit. The exhaust system is complete with dual pipe manifolds that help to improve thermal insulation. With the auxiliary air system intake in the heads, combined with the trivalent catalytic converter, the double lambda probe and the engine design, the Moto Guzzi twin 750 complies with the Euro 4 standard.

Maximum power reaches 52 HP at 6,200 rpm, whereas maximum torque measures in at 60 Nm at 4,900 rpm, with a truly flat torque curve that promise ease of use combined, as always, with that typical character and quick response of a Moto Guzzi engine. The reduced-power version is also available, in line with the limitations set by the A2 class driver’s license and ideal for new Guzzi riders, who can also count on the reduced total weight and size and the overall easy ride of all the V7 III versions. Another innovative aspect of the Moto Guzzi engine is the 170 mm dry single disc clutch that increases sturdiness and reliability over time, also decreasing the load on the lever at the handlebar, all to the advantage of modulability and riding comfort. The six speed gearbox, precise and smooth in shifting, remains unchanged compared to the V7 II, but it benefits from a different ratio for first and sixth gear, both slightly lengthened, handy for taking better advantage of the engine’s torque and power features.

 

Safety: a Moto Guzzi asset

Moto Guzzi has always been at the top of its game with it comes to safety aspects as well. V7 III has an ABS braking system and an adjustable MGCT (Moto Guzzi Traction Control) system that can also be disabled. The former is a two-channel Continental system that prevents the wheels from locking up, whereas the latter is a system that prevents rear wheel spin in acceleration. The MGCT system is adjustable to two sensitivity levels, one more conservative and ideal, for example, in poor grip situations due to wet or slippery asphalt and the other is designed to cater to the thrill of riding in safety on dry roads. Another peculiarity of the MGCT system is the possibility of recalibrating the rear tyre circumference, compensating for any wear or the use of a tyre with a different profile than the original so that the traction control system will always be accurate.
