2011 Moto Guzzi V7 Clubman

Posted in Café Racers, Moto Guzzi, Motorcycle by Dustin Driver | August 11th, 2010 | 2 Responses |

Café racers are undeniably gorgeous. There’s something about the stripped-down, DIY racing aesthetic that’s simply stunning. Moto Guzzi knows it and has souped up its sedate (but sexy) V7 Classic to make the V7 Clubman. The bike gets a shiny red frame, a glimmering chrome tank, and some snazzy number plates. From the looks of things, it also gets sportier suspension and an even grumblier exhaust system. No word on whether Moto Guzzi have squeezed some more power out of the V7’s modest 744-cc V-twin. The V7 Clubman will retail in October for about $11,000, $1,500 more than the V7 Classic. Personally, I’d remove the number plates. Or save some cash and run a set of flat or clip-on bars on the already sultry V7 Classic. My neighbor, Gabe Ets-Hokin, runs CityBike and recently had a V7 Classic for review. The bike was a feast for the eyes, a sleek vintage standard that took my breath away every time I passed it on the way to my car. Keep an eye out on CityBike for a full review.

  1. I love Guzzis but sorry, the whole point of a café racer is that it isn’t over egged. This is a bit of a pastiche and whereas the Tenni was an interesting pastiche this one has lost its way.
