Moto Guzzi is making significant changes to the V7, which is set to be launched in 2021. It sports some rather significant changes, including some to the powerplant. Moto Guzzi has given the V7 a larger engine that delivers 25% more horsepower, suspension adjustments, and an agile stance. While there is no announcement from Piaggio whether the motorcycle will be launched in Nepal any time soon. The updated V7 drops the Roman numerals from its name; rather than being known as the ‘V7 III’, it will be named just ‘V7’. The V7 has been through a few evolutions but the parts have remained pretty much the same until now.
Moto Guzzi claims the new engine delivers 25 percent more peak power, now producing 65 hp at 6,800 rpm and 73.2 Nm at 5,000 rpm. In comparison, the engine on the outgoing V7 III produces 13hp and 10Nm less. Moreover, Moto Guzzi has also updated the 2021 V7 with an all-new toolkit, Kayaba shocks in the rear, and a larger rear wheel with a 150/70 wider tire. Hardware, like the single-disc front brake and shaft drive, remains the same, but there are cosmetic changes in the form of new side panels and a shorter rear mudguard. The V7 Special, meanwhile, has dual analog dials, spoked wheels, and a classic round headlight.
The new V7 is only available in two variants - the V7 Stone and the V7 Special. Now, the Moto Guzzi V7 Special has dark blue paint with silver stripes, brown seat and wire wheels. On the other hand, the V7 Stone is available in three paint colors: Nero Ruvido, Azzurro Ghiaccio, and Arancione Rame. However, the new V7 gets a few tweaks that give it a fresh and sporty appeal. It also gets a new seat, redesigned LED headlamp and tail lamp along with a new stylish new side panels. The main point of V7 is that it's letting buyers decide whether they want a pair of analog gauges, or a digital instrument cluster that consists of a single gauge.
The company hasn't released information about availability and pricing, yet. But we do know that the V7 will be available in two versions for 2021 – the V7 Stone and V7 Special in the Nepalese market as yet. Both will be sold in the United States for now and we are not sure when they will launch in the Asian market. For more information about auto news in Nepal, please stay tune with us.
