2012 Moto Guzzi V7 Racer Quick Look

2012 Moto Guzzi Motorcycle

Sporting number plates and a bright red frame, there is no question that the Moto Guzzi V7 Racer is a bold tribute to the Italian factory’s competition heritage.

Powered by a torquey, easy-to-ride 744cc air- cooled, pushrod, V-twin, the V7 Racer is about the experience, rather than pure performance.

Regardless, handling is still very complementary to the powerplant, and the Pirelli Sport Demon tires provide a confident feel for the road.

A massive single 320mm front disc slows the V7 Racer down from the speeds it will attain, with help from engine compression and a 260mm rear disc.
