Moto Guzzi V7 Café Classic (Video)

By Richard Backus

Motorcycle Classics takes delivery of a brand new Moto Guzzi V7 Café Classic, delivered by Van Dam Trucking. The editors spent a month riding the bike and it was featured in the September/October 2008 issue.

Moto Guzzi V7 Café Classic

The Moto Guzzi V7 Café Classic is an undeniably good looking motorcycle. Guzzi has dug into its heritage and picked out key styling points from past models to make a medley of the best bits. Following Guzzi’s V-twin/shaft drive concept and using the proven and reliable 2-valve Breva 750 fuel-injected engine, Guzzi designers have welded on a tubular subframe to cater to the “classic”-looking twin-shock rear end, along with a slight mishmash of parts like the attractive chrome-spoked wheels from Guzzi’s own Nevada cruiser model, and clocks and instruments from a batch originally destined for Ducati Monsters.
