From a technical point of view, the new V7 is also a simple motorcycle: conventional, non-adjustable telescopic fork at the front, except for traction control no driving aids or other bells and whistles. In this respect, it is absolutely incomprehensible from our point of view why an LCD cockpit is used here!? Okay, the V7 Stone can be paired with the mobile phone, but does anyone from the target group of this motorcycle want that at all?
The lighting comes (in contrast to the V7 Special) completely in LED incl. turn signals. Also a daytime running light, of course in eagle optics, is included. Looks already chic and from the comments of our test video we know: Many people like this style.
The longitudinally installed V2 shakes itself dutifully at the start and then rumbles nicely in front of it. Even when blindfolded you can feel: I'm sitting on a Guzzi! The sitting position is casually upright. The low seat height also suits smaller people and the V7 850 is also easy to manoeuvre - a good thing.
