V7-based Sports retro expected to make debut at this year's Milan Show   

LOTS OF rumours going around right now that we're going to get a tricked-up Moto Guzzi V7 Sport motorcycle launched at the Milan Show in November.
Spurred on by sales of sporty retro-styled bikes from the likes of Ducati and the up-coming Honda retro cafe-racer, the Guzzi factory is claimed to be returning to its classic roots with the booming V7 Sport.

The bike will be based on the current V7 Classic, which was built to celebrate the 40th birthday of the first big Italian bike created by Giulio Cesare Carcano.

The new version will used the firm's 1200cc motor and will, no doubt, look absolutely stunning.

So they take the new motive package and try to stuff it into something that looks like an old fashioned frame! Brillint! Apart from the fact that if it LOOKS like an old fashioned frame it will PERFORM like an old fashioned frame and be completely inadequate! Brilliant! Another great two-holer from the retarded monkeys in 'Design'

"based on the V7 Classic"

and

"will have a 1200cc motor"

have me scratching my head.




If they do anything like this with a big block motor, it will be a reskinned Cal Vintage... 

150 lbs heavier and twice as expensive as the V7 Classic...

I have little doubt that a retro big block will be on the podium at Milan.  I welcome it !!!

Saying it's "based on" the V7 Classic (like in that little press blurb) just makes me laugh, though...

With the V7 Classic, Piaggio has demonstrated that it is interested in squeezing more life and money out of existing platforms.

Doing the same thing with the California's Tonti platform makes good sense.

I anxiously await the November EICMA shows each year.  Last year was awesome with the 8v motor and the V7 Classic.  Hopefully this year will be cool, too...

Coming from a V7 Sport owner....I can't hardly wait to see what they come out with...

Will it compare to an original V7 Sport...? I don't think so...But look at what the 1000 S brings....

Boy, now I feel bad about dissing Andy Sirvio the other evening.

Sorry man!

But I look forward to the big Sport, be it based on the Bellagio, Griso, or whatever.

I wonder if T-3 floorboards will fit?   Kiss    The factory probably heard plenty of people saying ,"The  "little" , v7 classic is nice, BUT I'd rather have a big block."  Hell why not make one?   The people who will buy it ain't worried about going fast anyway. It would make a nice retirement gift Grin  If the other rumours swirling around are true about the factory closing, they couldn't make enough of them......"Last Edition V7 Sport II"

Ahh yes....What a surprise....And none of you guys believed me when I posted the "Made you look" thread the other day.  Wink

I hope it's based on the big breva...Use a V7 style vintage tank and dual mufflers that don't swing up too high to allow nicely integrated semi-vintage styled hard saddlebags...I would bet it's just a warmed over tonti bike though...Should be nice enough I guess.

Hmmm... did´nt I see a list of new engines on a piaggio web site that had a new small block engine with 8V??
I would think this would be a better idea! To put a 1200 in a "V7 chassie" would it not make it kind of heavy?

Has the rumor of a 1400cc engine in a cruiser been addressed on this board - I haven't been keeping up lately?

http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/Article_Page.aspx?ArticleID=6960&Page=2


Quote
Moto Guzzi still looks on course to come up with a new air-cooled 1400cc V-Twin motor featuring four-valve heads. Primarily this will be used for a cruiser to take on Harley at their own game as it is expected to give over 100 hp with lots of torque down low.

Insiders suggest the next bike to get the new engine, after the yet unnamed new cruiser, will be the Norge. Other bikes may follow in due course, but it should be remembered that they are still working on a liquid-cooled version of their existing powerplant. The Milan Show in November seems to be the favorite for the new cruiser to break cover.

Yeah...  Supposedly Guzzi will have an 850, a 1200, and a 1400 cc version of the new 8v engine.

They're also supposed to have an 8v version of the smallblock in the works, too...

Well that's according to the Piaggio timeline chart that was circulating a few weeks ago...

Aprilia is supposed to be getting a 1200cc v-twin for superbike and a v-4 for MotoGP...

I think it's a great idea - just hope it's not rumors and typos...

By "based on" maybe they meant "based on the styling" as oppossed to "built on the platform of"

I was able to obtain this mildly disguised 'spy' shot of the new V7 sport in a highly secretive portion of the Moto Guzzi factory.  While it does not look true to the previous 'S' models, it looks like it will not disappoint.



Id be the first in line.
