2021 Moto Guzzi V7

The V7 has long been Guzzi's bread-and-butter model.

With its relatively reasonable entry price, gorgeous looks and new rider-friendly dynamics, it's easy to see why.

But the motorcycle industry is changing, and Guzzi has to change with it, which is why the V7 is getting a major update for 2021.

The motor goes up in displacement by 100cc and sees a considerable bump in output; 13 horsepower, in fact.

The overall look and spirit of the bike stay true to the oddball nature that Guzzi fans demand.
