Guzzi V7 gains endurance racer kit

Moto Guzzi V7 Record kit inspired by 1970s endurance racer

Inspiration comes from the 1969 Moto Guzzi V7 Record prototype

MOTO GUZZI has created a new factory kit that will transform any clip-on fitted V7 into a replica of their 1970s endurance racer.

The kit was inspired by the 1969 Moto Guzzi V7 Record prototype, an endurance racer that set numerous speed records for the Italian manufacturer, including one at Monza Speedbowl Circuit where the V7 achieved an average speed over 1000km of 206km/h (128mph).

To create the retro look, the record kit features a front fairing and a single-seat unit, complete with an spoiler-fin and a memory foam set.

Guzzi claim the kit is simple and easy to fit on any V7 Cafe or V7 Racer. The fibreglass front fairing utilises the existing headlight assembly, while the single seat unit is a straight swap for the standard seat with no modification necessary.

The kit can also be fitted to the V7 Classic, V7 Stone and V7 Special, but a set of Guzzi's factory clip-ons are required.

The V7 Record kit costs £13,99.99 and is available from any Moto Guzzi dealer.

Now if they can just get some horsepower out of that anemic Heron head. (I have a 1974 V7 Sport and know a bit of their history.) Even Ed Milich is challenged to get air flow from that head and maybe they need to do a 4 valve head like on the Lario.

What it needs is a 1200 engine...

disagree with the need to increase power. I have a mix of bikes of different ages (60's to current), power (30bhp to 150) and types (classic to sports). I brought a V7 racer last year, although it only has around 50bhp, it's great to ride and is more demanding to ride really fast. I guess I might be getting old, but it seems more demanding riding a less powerful bike at 100% of its capabilities than a powerful bike at 50% of it's capabilities.

Moto Guzzi Endurance Racer Kit is being offered with a single-seat element and a front fairing. This new endurance kit could easily be fitted to the Moto Guzzi V7 Classic, Special and Stone but you will need a special set of factory clip-on from Moto Guzzi.
