Video: 2011 Moto Guzzi V7 Racer

Is this going to be 2011's coolest motorcycle?

CLAP EYES on this beauty: the 2011 Moto Guzzi V7 Racer - a limited production model based around the company's exisiting V7 Classic.

Featuring 40mm Marzocchi forks and twin Bitubo remote-reservoir rear shocks, the V7 racer rides on 18-inch rubber for that classic, big-wheel look.

The new Guzzi features some tasty race-inspired additions, including adjustable rearsets, plenty of hand-crafted aluminium and, to keep things sharp, 320mm front brake discs and 4-piston Brembo calipers.

Sold as a single-seater, the Racer will come with a dual-seat option for those insistent on ruining the 1960s cafe racer bad-boy look.

An Arrow exhaust system will also be available as an optional extra.

With just 49bhp and 40ft-lbs of torque on tap the V7 Racer is most definitely all about style and not so much about speed, which we think is no bad thing.
