So we've gone on record as saying the Moto Guzzi V7 is a bit of a missed opportunity and that Guzzi needs to cool it with the trad retros and finally build some exciting bikes. But, we do have to say the new V7 Café Classic looks damn good in avocado green.
In addition to the paintwork, which is made extra nice by its matte
finish, the Café Classic adds clip-ons, upswept exhausts, a bullet seat
and revised suspension geometry and 40mm Marzocchi forks for sportier
The V7 is much more convincing as a café racer than as a standard, but
it's still lacking both modern performance and authentically classic
Moto Guzzi looks -- there's no exposed horizontal frame rail.
