Moto Guzzi's V7 Racer

Moto Guzzi has continued along it's retro themed range of the V7 Classic and the V7 Cafe Classic, to release a new model called the V7 Racer.

I believe the engine has remained the same however there have been a few more bells and whistles included in the package.  These upgrades include fully adjustable suspension, Bitubo remote reservoir rear shocks, spoked wheels and a Ducati Monster Dark style paint job with the red frame and dark body work.

I'll take two please.

Confirmed. The engine is still the same 45 HP (roughly) and the tank is still in fiberglass :( despite the chrome finishing... It is sad for an Italian watching this Guzzi, especially if he has in mind the real V7 made in the 70's.
However, good staff for beginners or cafè racers admirers who do not want to spend time and money on an oldish model.

Thanks for the confirmation Inazuma Luke.

I'm not sure why they come with the fiberglass tank though? I'm fairly certain that they aren't road legal here in Australia.

I guess these would be in direct competition with the Trump Thruxton, Ducati Sport Classic and the Norton Commando 961, as you said all making good models for cafe racer fans.
