V7 is off my wish list for the time being, especially since the V7 II won't be available in North America until 2016, at which time the European model may see even more improvements. And like someone else was posting elsewhere, the Limited Edition in the US with the green tank and the red frame seems to be just a way of dumping their remaining models onto unsuspecting buyers.Still hoping…
I've been admiring the V7 for some time, but after viewing the redesigned model, I can't help but feel that Moto-Guzzi has been manufacturing and selling a premium priced motorcycle with a flawed drivetrain, all along. The raised and rearward-canted engine seems to have been a last-minute band-aid solution to compensate for the overly sharp angle of the output and drive shaft joint in their design, and this totally contradicts conventional motorcycle design where the weight is always placed "low and to the front" as much as possible.
I think we're getting trolled
Yep, trolled. Some the OP got confused about the geometry of the newest version of the V7. The engine will be canted fwd, not backward and the pegs are lower...not raising the engine. I suspect the engine cant is just to get the left jug away from the riders left knee and lower pegs merely opens up the foot to seat distance for taller riders. The basic drive train is as dependable as a ball peen hammer. This must be part of the mid winter cabin fever...Peter Y.
Flawed because you have to disassembles half the bike to get the rear wheel out.
YEAH, less convenient than a CARC, but hardly flawed...and probably easier than a Cali 1400 right?
I like the bike, I'm mostly disappointed in Moto-Guzzi's initial execution of it. If there was nothing wrong with the layout in the first place, then why did they change it?
He's from Canada so maybe a small trip to Seattle might be a good thing.
Gee you can't be disillusioned till you have owned one.
