Cycle world just posted a review of the new V7...they are not very impressed.

cycleworld.com/story/motorcycle-reviews/2021-moto-guzzi-v7-stone-first-ride-review

Yeah, I saw that one on YouTube.

Problem was, the guy tried to review it like it was a sports bike.

Horses for courses an' all that.

" brand new rider footpeg support are used"

By looking to the pictures, I cannot find the differences between the V7 III and the 21 model... Does anyone sees them?

I wonder if the seat/footpeg distance remains at least the same. A couple more cms wouldn't hurt.

I rode the new V7 Special yesterday at OC Motorcycle's demo event. I was not able to feel the extra HP and torque, at least they were not apparent enough for me. It could be that the demo bike still needs to be broken in. I am 5' 7, about 155lbs with riding gears. Ergo wise, pretty similar to V7 III. Just not enough to convince me to trade up.

It's what I suspected once I read they are using the same ECU/TB. Why they didn't use the same TB/ECU as the V85TT(?)... Is another question, and one that will forever remain a head-scratcher.
Which means the value or my 820cc pistons are a worthwhile investment to those who own V7s!

So did the V7 850 get the same engine setup as the V9 850 or are there three variants of the 850 now with th V85TT

Maybe they had a bunch of Throttle bodies and ECU's in Inventory to get Rig of before they could move to New / V85 H/W ?

All 2021 models use a variant of the V85TT engine, including the V9. It was pretty well covered in this section. ;)

I am seriously considering this as my next bike. Would be my first MG, so I've been reading all about MG and the new V7 and have watched every single video on it. Now I just came across this one:

Is it normal that the speedo needle jumps up when starting the bike?

Yeah, on the newer computerized bikes, it's normal for indicator lights to blink and needles to sweep when the key is powered on. Basically sort of a self-diagnostic process.

I'm familiar with needle sweeps, but I was actually refering to the jolt of the needle right when he presses the ignition button (@ 0:13 - 0:14).
