The new Moto Guzzi V7 Cafe Classic is a testament to what happens when you combine old-school looks with new-school technology. The result is a cafe racer version of the V7 Classic retro roadster that was introduced last year.

In terms of design, the V7 Cafe Classic packs plenty of unique features, including a 31.7" seat height, high pegs, and café-style bars that make for a comfortable ride courtesy of the bullet seat. Speaking of comfort, riding the Cafe Classic won’t give you the speed thrills you’re looking for, but what it does give you is a comfortable and classy ride on a bike that exudes retro awesomeness. Even the contrasted instrumentation and the elegant, aero-inspired filler cap exudes that old-school look that has become en vogue these days.

Speaking of the engine, the V7 Cafe Classic isn’t the most powerful bike on the market, but it does have a powertrain that’s more than capable of holding its own. The bike is powered by Guzzi’s small block 750 Nevada V-twin powertrain in an old school twin shock chassis. This engine comes equipped with twin shocks, spoke wheels, and period Veglia-esque clocks, all of which add to the Classic’s vintage virtue. While the blacked-out frame, fenders, drivetrain, fork lowers, and a fast idle lever show more modern style, the combination of styling and performance makes for a bike that’s perfect for a ride out in town.

What makes the Moto Guzzi V7 Racer such a desirable bike? Lots of reasons, if you know what you’re looking for.

Built in 2008, the V7 Racer comes with a design inspired by its predecessors - the V7 Special and Sport from the seventies - but combined with the technology of a modern Moto Guzzi . The result is a bike that’s well worth owning.

One of the first things you’ll notice about the V7 Racer is the red frame that was inspired by the legendary first 150 examples of the V7 Sport with CrMo frames. The bike also has an ultra sporty single-seater saddle - with a two-seater saddle and pillion footpegs available as optional accessories - that has been upholstered in suede. The seat leads into an aerodynamic tail fairing that also incorporates lateral race number panels in true Seventies style.

In terms of power, the Guzzi V7 Racer doesn’t hold back, thanks to an updated 745cc V-twin engine with more than 70% of its internal components being all-new, and twin intake manifolds and throttle bodies being replaced with a single Y manifold and single 38mm Magneti Marelli throttle body. All these components help the bike not only improve its fuel economy, but also reduce CO2 emissions.
The updated engine of the V7 also gets a redesigned fuel tank with the tank now lighter than the earlier unit and made of metal instead of polyethylene. All told, the bike can hit 51 horsepower and 58 Nm of torque, enough numbers to make it a worthwhile cafe racer.

Moto Guzzi’s V7 family now has a new member, which is willing to teach motorcyclists a thing or two about the ways they can enjoy riding the world’s greatest machine with wheels as long as they open their eyes and prick up their ears. Unveiled last week in Milan, the 2010 Moto Guzzi V7 Clubman Racer is reminiscent of 1970s Italian café racers. Then, as now, these were machines that handled beautifully and stopped fast, managing to compete with Japanese bikes with seriously more horsepower available at the rear wheel.

With a 744cc V-twin developing only 48.8 hp and 58.2 Nm, but featuring a beautifully crafted frame, upgraded suspension and brakes, the 2010 Moto Guzzi V7 Clubman Racer remains faithful to the original recipe and addresses to nostalgics of the period. Also featuring wrapped headers and upswept Arrow exhuasts, polished aluminum tank, rearsets and clip-ons as well as Pirelli Demon Sport tires, I guess you can look at it as to a V7 Classic with a soft spot for races.
