I think it's interesting that it may be capable of beating the original V7 Sport. That might (maybe) silence the nay-sayers somewhat.
What is the electronic throttle about? It looks like it still has throttle cables.
No, it's not RBW. What it is is an integrated throttle body, ECU and stepper system that is basically 'Set and Forget'. Simple and easy. Brilliant.VDG
The new V7 is a great bike, if that is what you want. If they were to stick a real gearbox and final drive in it and put it in a 'Mini Stelvio' package I'd buy the first one off the boat. As it is it doesn't tick MY boxes but it s, undeniably, an improvement on the last model. (Looks cooler too! ~;)VDG
Pete it sort of is RBW, the cables operate a potentiometer in the throttle unit, and the controller decides how far to move the blade. There is a limp home, function that allows the cable to control it up to maybe 20% opening if the electronics let you down. Its a basic kind of system similar to what eusro cars had in the early part of the 2000's. Then they went to no cables at all. Some other bikes may use just a TPS at the grip and be full on RBW, I dont know . That is std now for cars, the gas pedal is just a sensor, with no connection to the throttle blade except digitally
And there is no reason for an external idle device when the throttle blade is under computer control.( It does that too)
So it's no longer a traditional throttle-cable-butterfly connection? It's a partial ride by wire (RBW)?I'm a little sad. Part of the 750's appeal is that it's a throw-back. A neanderthal of motorcycles. A coelacanth. A little like the Royal Enfield. :oBravely resisting the push to modernity.
No manual spark advance, kick starter or manual oil pump*? Hah! A Poser bike for the masses!(*but optional at extra cost)
Don't laugh. Like a manual spark advance, Guzzi had a manual throttle stop (the "choke") on previous V7s, all because it "was too hard" (?) to modify the map to raise rpms on a cold bike. That's a modern version of an archaic design.

As said, it doesn't exist a "map to raise rpms on a cold bike". If the throttle body has a stepper motor, the ECU can keep the engine at the RPM he wants whenever he wants.If it hasn't, the ECU can only enrich the mixture on a cold bike, and that's not a guarantee, so there is the manual throttle stop.The Ducati Monster, for example, lost the "choke" only with the 696 / 1100 models.
