Moto Guzzi V7 Racer: Limited Edition

Moto Guzzi V7

Moto Guzzi, celebrating its 90th anniversary, continues to honor the tradition of timeless style and old school cool with the release of this classic limited-edition machine, the V7 Racer.

It’s been about 60 years since cafe racers, a type of motorcycle, started to turn heads and raise the sound levels on the streets of London. The Moto Guzzi V7 Racer is an ode to the cafe race motorcycles of the 50s and 60s.

Café Racer and vintage motorcycle culture is exploding in the U.S. The V7 racer would make a great steed for a lifestyle piece about the vintage bike scene. The V7 Racer is a great model for those looking for café racer style coupled with modern performance and reliability.
