Produced in a numbered edition, as indicated by the plate located on the upper steering yoke, the Moto Guzzi V7 III Racer is not only the most sporty of the range, but also the one with the most prestigious parts. This backs Moto Guzzi’s ability to continuously create true customs directly from the factory.
There are numerous technical and aesthetic differences that distinguish it from the previous version and from the other…V7 III models.
As for the stylistic aspects, the V7 III Racer introduces a new graphic for the satin finish chromium fuel tank where the red eagle is prominently displayed. This feature is reminiscent of the “Rosso Corsa” colour chosen to paint the frame and the swingarm: an explicit reminder of the first 1971 V7 Sport series, nicknamed “red frame.”
The V7 III Racer’s sporty nature is emphasized by its semi-handlebars and its splendid, humped seat. In accordance with tradition, the Racer has a single-seater sport bike look, but in reality, this new version is approved for two-up riding. In fact, it has passenger foot pegs and, as before, the seat cover can be easily removed when necessary.
One of the most distinctive features of this “factory special” worth mentioning is the widespread use of anodized black aluminium. This hand-crafted treatment, which requires superb artisan skill, characterizes the new side panels and the throttle body guards, whereas the new front number plate is made of brushed aluminium.
The spoked wheels have black channels and red Moto Guzzi stickers like the other sport models from the brand, including the Audace muscle bike. Other premium components that stand out are the set-back foot pegs, which are machined from solid billets, the lightened steering stem and the steering yoke guard.
The most important technical innovation is the V7 III Racer’s Öhlins shock absorbers, adjustable in spring preload and in rebound and compression. The top name in suspension, the Öhlins suspension ensures top performance while throttling some backroads.
Though power was increased by 10% due to a new 90-degree transverse V-twin engine–a one-of-a-kind configuration–the V7 remains Moto Guzzi’s entry-level model.
The V7 III Racer retains the stylistic personality of the original V7 model, but with a much more mature and robust attitude–primarily to the presence of the dual pipe exhaust manifold and cylinder heads, both oversized.
But some things should not change, such as the metal fuel tank with its 5.5-gallon capacity and style inspired, as always, by the magnificent 1971 V7 Sport. The aluminium fuel cap is no longer flush with the tank line, but it is a screw cap and, as previously, it has a lock.
Other new style elements on the V7 III Racer are:
– Sleeker side fairings
– New saddle
– New Turn Signals
– 1.5” Wider Mirrors for increased visibility
– New Instrumentation: (analog speedometer along with digital display odometer, partial and daily trip (resets automatically eight hours after being switched off), trip time, instantaneous and average consumption, air temperature, average speed, MGCT level, and gear indicator)
The rich catalog of dedicated accessories includes the MG-MP, the Moto Guzzi multimedia platform that connects your smartphone to your vehicle, providing an exceptional quantity of useful travel information.
There are many excellent twin cylinder engines in the world, but there is only one transversal V-twin, and it is the Moto Guzzi twin. This transverse powerplant was born in 1967 out of an ingenious intuition by Giulio Cesare Carcano, and characterized by a configuration of the cylinders so particular that it made it an integral part of the bike’s design, like a true modern art metallic sculpture.
In the mid-weight V7, the engine has arrived at its third evolution and it has therefore been entirely revamped with respect to the previous unit mounted on the V7 II. This third evolution was developed with the goal of raising riding pleasure and fun on the road to a maximum, as well as guaranteeing higher performance and reliability.
The V7 III Racer’s aluminium crankcase, stiffened in the key points, uses a new oil sump and a crankshaft with inertial calculated for easier revving and stronger engine braking. The crankcase lubrication system was designed to optimally dissipate and reduce power absorption in favor of both performance and a reduction in fuel consumption.
The V7 III’s 744cc engine’s new ventilation system reduces power loss due to the internal pumping of the crankcase chambers and a reduced capacity oil pump capable of absorbing less power. The oil pump intake duct is new, as is the related by-pass valve and piston cooling oil jets have been introduced that have a flow control and management valve. The alternator cover is also new, now with built-in exhaust blow-by.
The Racer’s engine also features new aluminium heads, pistons and cylinders, although the bore and stroke values are the same as the previous unit (80 x 74mm), confirming the V7 III’s intention as the Moto Guzzi entry-level motorcycle. As per tradition, the timing is controlled by a pushrod and rockers system with 2 valves per cylinder, now arranged in an inclined position (more efficient) in the head.
The V7 III Racer’s fuel system is entrusted to a single-body Marelli electronic injection system managed by an electronic control unit. The exhaust system is also new, fitted with double pipe manifolds that improve thermal insulation. With the auxiliary air system intake in the heads, combined with the trivalent catalytic converter, the double oxygen sensor and the new engine design, the Moto Guzzi twin 750 complies with the Euro 4 pollution standard.
Maximum power has increased to 52 horsepower at 6200 rpm, 44.2 ft/lbs of torque at 4900 rpm, with a truly flat torque curve that promise ease of use combined, as always, with that typical character and quick response of a Moto Guzzi engine.
Another innovative aspect of the Moto Guzzi engine is the dry single-disc clutch that increases sturdiness and reliability over time. The clutch was designed for a light pull at the lever, again building on the V7’s entry-level rider intentions.
The six-speed transmission introduced on the V7 II, precise and smooth, is unchanged but now benefits from a different first and sixth gear ratio, handy for taking full advantage of the engine’s torque and power characteristics.
The V7 III Racer has an ABS system and a new adjustable MGCT (Moto Guzzi Traction Control) system that can also be disabled. The ABS is a two-channel Continental system that prevents the wheels from locking up during intense braking, and the two-level traction (wet or dry conditions) control prevents rear-wheel spin in acceleration.

In the beginning… In the early '90s, two avid motorcycle enthusiasts rolled up the doors of GP Motorcycles for the first time. Their passion for the classic style and character of such marques as BSA, Triumph, Norton and Ducati, led to the opening GP Motorcycles, with the intent to fill a cultural void in downtown San Diego — a "cool place" to hang out, eat, sleep, and breathe European motorcycles. It was this passion for motorcycles with "old world" style and characteristic exhaust notes that paved the way for what now seems a very natural transition to the sexy lines and throaty roar of the modern machines of Ducati, MV Agusta, Moto Guzzi, and Aprilia. Over the past 23+ years, GP Motorcycles has grown from a small, mostly-vintage bike shop to a thriving multi-brand dealership that has been named the top-selling dealer in the country for each of its franchises over the years. Even with the advent of all the modern machinery, the team at GP still exude a passion for the vintage & classic European bikes that brought the shop into existence. And, GP is still the coolest place to hang out in downtown San Diego. Why buy at GP? In the late '80s and early '90s if you rode your European bike to one of the larger dealerships in town, they would treat you like you had the plague. Now of course, things have changed and these very same European bikes that we have always loved are now considered mainstream, and we love and respect them just as much as we did back then. With all the shops and online stores out there, we realize you have a choice, so here are some more reasons why you should choose GP Motorcycles: We don't just ride what we sell, we ONLY SELL WHAT WE RIDE! This is why at GP, you will never see a Ducati on the same sales floor as a watercraft, or an MV Agusta next to a Side-by-Side — they just don't belong together. We know some of the big Japanese dealerships will add on a European "niche" brand to try to increase their bottom lines, but to us that's like selling Ferrari's at Walmart! If it's important to you where your money goes, know that when you choose to purchase from GP, you are supporting people like yourself, who are passionate about the machines they ride, and when you need us, we are here for you with over 30 years of experience working on, riding, racing, and loving these motorcycles. If price is your concern, don't fear! At GP, we understand and always strive to provide our customers with the highest level of service at a fair price. Don't assume you are getting a deal somewhere else that we can't match — GIVE US A TRY BEFORE YOU BUY SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!
