Moto Guzzi revealed their new V7 III Limited at Wheels and Waves 2018, donning a sizzling hot chrome, carbon and aluminium darkened livery that will turn heads. 500 units available worldwide, get yours while you still can.
In for an exclusive, cool-looking Moto Guzzi? Grab that wallet and head over to a Mandello dell Lario dealer and secure a Moto Guzzi V7 III Limited, the newest addition to the Italians’ stable, and a very elegant one, too. The V7 III Limited is yet another demonstration as to how versatile the iconic V7 machine is, but this time, Guzzi went over the top.
Most likely, the mirror-finish chrome tank and matching mirrors are the first elements that’d steal the show. Guzzi added a genuine leather tank strap that harks back to the olden era, a billet aluminium locking fuel cap, and a classic ribbed “bellows” seat for both rider and pillion.
The dark glistening of the tank and exhausts is matched by a sober, almost menacing black trim with machined aluminium accents on the cylinders and their covers. The cast rims are also black, and so are the fork’s slider tubes and the frame.
And because a “limited” edition must involve more than colors, Moto Guzzi added some new materials and texture. Both mudguards are made from carbon fiber, with matching side covers for a truly exclusive look. Instrumentation is minimalist, yet it mixes both old-school and modern elements. The Moto Guzzi V7 III Limited comes with a Spartan single-dial dash with an analogic speedo, and a digital display that provides complementary info.
On the tech side, nothing seems to be changed, with the 744cc transverse V-twin producing 52 HP @ 6,200 revs and a peak torque of 60 Nm @ 4,900 revs. Stopping power comes from Brembo, naturally.
Only 500 Moto Guzzi V7 III Limited bikes will be manufactured for worldwide distribution, so if you plan to take one home, you’d better hurry. No prices are known at the time of writing.
