Some comments about the Duc that were significant to me:"One final area the Ducati falls short is rider comfort, with the seat and riding position both becoming uncomfortable during the day’s ride." and "That makes it not a really comfortable motorcycle to ride. I wouldn’t want to live with that thing every day."Rich A
And stock Guzzi seats are comfortable? These "shootouts" are a joke. Each bike has its good and bad. The V7 wins for ME. That's why I have one and not the others.

ThisThough what is torture for one person is comfortable for the next. Jenn's Duc starts to hurt me after 50 miles, but she doesn't complain even after 300...
The one reviewer, Adam Waheed, has also done 2 other test rides on Moto Guzzi V7's for the same publication and has made it clear (to me): He hates them.

Triumph maybe is going to roll out a new engine for the Triumph in 2016. Possibly an 1100 with over 100 HP.
Triumph maybe is going to roll out a new engine for the Triumph in 2016. Possibly an 1100 with over 100 HP.Would hope they address the weight with the bike. That bike is very top heavy, you can feel it at lower speeds.The Ducati looks good, however a V7 II with true Scrambler set up could change everything considering a lower first gear 6 speed shorter shift and the weight lower and shifted forward, whole different bike really. Could be a game changer.Having been an off road dirt guy in the past, HP is really secondary. Low torque developed at lower RPM, with close cut gear ratio's really is the business. I would not count out Moto Guzzi yet.The Ducati the bike I know the least about. Would like to test ride one. It probably at this point the best of the three for off road use. I myself just don't like the look of it, tail section looks weird to me.I've got top heavy already with the Stelvio especially with a full tank (32 litres) . Got to be careful in slow traffic around town but once out of first look out . Interesting about the possible new Triumph , they like to keep up if not move ahead of the competition .I've never really been off road and envy the guys in SoCal who tear up the dirt roads out in the desert . I can see Steve McQueen givin it , he really rode hard in all those events which we never had up here in Canuck land . Too many trees and rocks , not to mention ice and snow where I lived as a young rider . Have a good one .
Are you basing that on any kind of evidence ? OR... is this like folks wishing for 75 HP small blocks ? ;) Dusty
