2017 Moto Guzzi V7 III Makes US Debut

Moto Guzzi releases four new versions of their popular standard

Over the weekend, the 2017 Moto Guzzi V7 III was presented for the first time to an American audience at The Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Chicago. Serving as the brand's best-seller since 2009, and entry-point for Moto Guzzi, the V7 III arrives new for 2017 with updated features, performance, and pricing, making it easier, and more enjoyable to own one of these motorcycles of legend, 50 years in the making.

FOUR VERSIONS AND INFINITE INTERPRETATIONS

V7 III returns in its three popular versions, Stone, Special and Racer that now, compared with the past, take on stronger connotations and differ even more from one another. For 2017, the V7 range expands, paying homage to fifty years of the V7 model by introducing a fourth version, the Anniversario, a numbered limited edition, characterized by brand new and exclusive details.

2017 V7 III SPECIAL: CONTEMPORARY CLASSIC STYLE The heritage of the original V7 is the inspiration for this elegant motorcycle, with generous chrome trim and shiny graphics, in Nero Inchiostro (Ink Black with green accents) and Blu Zaffiro (Blue Sapphire with orange and silver accents) versions. The colored band on the under-seat side panels matching the racing stripe on the fuel tank pays tribute to the unforgettable V750 S3 from 1975. A host of distinctive details include spoked wheels with polished aluminum channels and black hubs, an instrument panel with two circular dials and the “old-school” look of the quilt-stitched saddle, complete with new passenger grab rail. MSRP: $8,490

2017 V7 III RACER: SPORTY SOPHISTICATION True to the racing tradition of the eagle brand, the V7 III Racer is a true custom bike with incredible attention to detail, offered in a limited edition. The references to Moto Guzzi’s sporting triumphs begin with the “Racing Red” color of the frame and swingarm, inspired by the legendary “red frame” V7 Sport from 1971, coupled with the new graphics for the satin-chrome fuel tank dominated by the red eagle. The racing look continues with the clip-ons and racer saddle, while the side panels and injector covers in black anodized aluminum are a thing of beauty. This traditionally one-seat model shows its versatility with a standard type-approved two-seat version featuring special passenger footpegs, and Öhlins shock absorbers for improved handling. MSRP: $9,990

2017 V7 III ANNIVERSARIO: TRIBUTE TO THE ORIGINS OF THE V7 LEGEND Dedicated to true admirers of the eagle brand, the V7 III Anniversario implements cutting-edge technology to celebrate the unique style of the V7, the symbol of fifty years of international success for Moto Guzzi. The commemorative model is offered in a limited edition, with the number forged on the machined-from-solid handlebar base. The V7 III Anniversario is unquestionably the most fully featured V7 ever, with a standard genuine leather saddle, a work of art worthy of the top customizers, polished aluminum fenders and milled engine cooling fins. The tribute to the original V7 includes an elaborate chrome motif, beginning with the fuel tank featuring the Moto Guzzi eagles in a gilt finish. MSRP: $9,990

2017 V7 III STONE: DARK URBAN SPIRIT The dark soul of the V7 reveals its eclectic and essential nature with an aesthetic that eschews chrome in favor of matte black paint. The profoundly metropolitan dark matte look is completed with a single-dial instrument panel, a new saddle, a shortened front mudguard and, a unique feature in the V7 III range, light alloy spoked wheels. The V7 III Stone offers a foray into color, with versions reprising the color schemes of the 1970s: Azzurro Elettrico (Electric Blue), Verde Camouflage (Camouflage Green), Giallo Energico (Energetic Yellow) and the ever-present Nero Ruvido (Rough Black). MSRP: $7,990
