Moto Guzzi is a brand unlike any other. Now in its 95th year of uninterrupted production, Guzzi remains entirely authentic in its retro appeal. The Moto Guzzi has a long heritage of charming air-cooled V-Twins with pushrods. Powered by a 90-degree 750 V-Twin mounted with its crankshaft inline with its wheels, and it retains its shaft-drive arrangement, and it has a 6 speed transmission. Traction control is standard equipment, as is an ABS system. Classy dual gauges with chrome bezels look authentically retro while having modern displays for time and ambient temperature. Traction control, which has a fairly low level before intervention, can be switched off by holding down the starter button. The Guzzi’s V-Twin plays a key role in the riding experience, with its pair of cylinders jutting out from both sides of the fuel tank and the whole bike rocking to the right when its throttle is blipped. The 90-degree vee architecture (like Ducatis) ensures a smooth engine that sounds wonderful to gearheads. Ample grunt is always on tap throughout the rev range. The V7 II’s riding position is about perfect for this style of bike, with a moderately sporty forward lean to the bars without placing any pressure on wrists. Legroom is quite sufficient, and the footpegs slightly rear-set are comfortable. The V7 is remarkably slim between the knees considering its large, 5.8-gallon capacity; that’s an easy 250 miles or more between fuel stops. This bike looks like new, with only 1,055 Miles!!!
