MSRP $8,990

Under the sign of ‘Legnano’ green Moto Guzzi V7 Cafè Classic’s design is very similar to the style of the famous V7 Sport, faithfully maintaining the forms and volumes of the tank and side fairings.
This style is one of the very best examples of Italian design of the 70s, so famous in fact that trade press didn’t delay in declaring the V7 Sport the archetype of Italian sport bikes where the essence of style conveys the effectiveness of the function for which the bike was designed.
There are many similarities between the ancestor and the new V7 Cafè Sport starting with the particularly compact front thanks to the two slanting half-handlebars that tempt the rider to take an aerodynamic position with eyes on the instruments and body just a span from the top of the tank, the latter painted in the ‘Legnano’ colours, a shade of green and metallised gold that, in a satin tone, reminds us of the typical colour of the sportiest Moto Guzzi bikes.
Celebration of the ‘Seventies’ style continues with the profusion of chroming, spoked wheels, raised silencers, the instrument dial inspired by the famous Veglia-Borletti and the saddle with integrated tail that follows the line of the rear mudguard, the latter in a dark colour matching the front.
