    Intereting news that the V7 will stick around...

    image.jpeg

    Piaggio has filed a trademark for a brand new emblem, suggesting a brand new line of Moto Guzzi V7 models is on the way. The trademark, filed July 20, suggesting Moto Guzzi is getting ready a V7 III lineup, which we’ll probably see introduced this Fall at both Intermot or EICMA.

    Whereas the brand itself doesn’t supply many specifics, we will draw some reasonable conclusions. The present V7 II line was launched in 2016 for the U.S. with the Racer & Stone variants with the Stornello scrambler becoming a new member of the lineup. These models hopefully will return for 2017 with a brand new Euro 4 compliant V7 III collection.

    The new models will likely take some cues from the Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber and V9 Roamer that are Euro 4 compliant. The brand new emblem suggests the V7 III will keep across the present line’s 744cc displacement as an alternative of switching utterly to the V9’s 853cc engine. We anticipate the V7 III engine will share a few of the V9’s know-how, together with the lack of the antiquated Heron head design.

    We shall see what the now unpredictable brand will bring in a few months time.

    I guess MG have no option but to keep changing the V7 to comply with ever higer Euro controls.....and I am glad that they are keeping the model going.....but the number of different V7 Types will make future spares supply more cojmplicated.
    We already have:
    V7 Mk I with twin TBs.
    V7 Mk 1.5??? - with single TB
    V7 Mk 1.5 with oil cooled alternator
    V7 Mk II - which only seemed to arrive yesterday
    Lets hope the Mk III can run for a decent length of time.

    I would call it:
    V7 Mk .5 - twin TBs
    V7 Mk I - single TB (fairly major updates)
    V7 Mk I.5 - oil cooled alternator
    V7 Mk II - Rotated motor & ABS/TC

    I'm surprised they wouldn't add the V7 bodywork to the V9, but I'm good with that since I'll be building them to sell here.

    Well, have to say we here in the two-wheeled mecca are still being deprived of trying or owning a V9. Still.

    I stopped by Kustom Cycle in Buffalo last week and sat on a V9 for the first time. They had 3 but just sold the Bobber so it wasn't there. There were 3 things that I didn't like about it. (1) No tach, I have never ridden a bike without a tach and while not necessary I know it would take along time to quite looking for it out of habit and for those like me that ride more than one bike we may never quit looking for it. (2) horrible looking fuel tank. I don't know what it takes to put a V7 tank on but that would be a must for me. (3) What the hell were they thinking when they chose that fuel cap? Ugliest thing I have ever seen and doesn't even lock.

    I am quite interested in seeing what Todd comes out with in the way of a hybrid of the two.

    Side note: The guys at Kustom Cycle were great and have a very nice dealership dedicated to Aprilla and Moto Guzzi which is the first of that kind I have been to.

    You are very fortunate to live that close to a caring dealer but not to live somewhere that I think it could snow in June.:shake:

    Well......
    If the worst points are:
    1. No tacho
    2. Horrible looking fuel tank
    3. Nasty fuel cap
    ..........then It can't be too bad.

    Local dealer here has several on hand. I've always liked it from the pictures and sure enough, to me both V9's are 20 footers. Up close every cable, hose, wire, sensor, ABS unit, etc. is in view. The tank appears to sit on top of the semi-exposed top frame rails. This makes them look very much like one of the current backyard customs being cobbled together around the world. So to me, fit and finish appear terrible. A few friends (and the dealer, who's a riding mate) that have ridden them give them big thumbs up, but I find the V7 much more appealing visually. Which is sad because I really wanted to like the Roamer.

    Such the rage these days, and will be worth pennies on the $ in a few years time. Sad really, especially to see an OEM doing this. We'll see what the V7 III brings.

    It's funny, but others look at the same bike and claim the details are much better done than on my V7.

    Shape of the tank or fuel cap is subjective, so meh, but quality of the components is a different matter.

    Spy shot below. Same V7 platform, but looks like maybe they popped on the V9 hemi head. Intermot or EICMA may reveal.

    I actually like the top one.
    Never cared for chrome fuel tanks but that one is pretty sweet.
