Moto Guzzi has unveiled at limited edition V7, called the Moto Guzzi V7 III Limited at the Wheels and Waves Festival in Biarritz, France. The popular festival, held on France's Atlantic coast, is dedicated to the special relationship between motorcycles and surfing and attracts thousands of fans every year. The Moto Guzzi V7 III is available in four versions and the Italian motorcycle brand has unveiled a special limited edition Moto Guzzi V7 III, finished in chrome and black and with only 500 to be made.
The V7 III Limited is positioned as a collector's item with an almost hand-crafted feel, thanks to elements such as the polished aluminium mudguards, chrome-plate rear grab bar and wheel rims with exclusive polished channels and grey hubs. The V7 III Limited has dedicated graphics, a chrome finished fuel tank and with a smattering of carbon fibre on the front mudguard and side panels, billet machined aluminium bits and a hand-stiched leather saddle.
Under the skin, the V7 III Limited retains the same mechanicals as the standard Moto Guzzi V7. The V7 is powered by a 744 cc v-twin engine which puts out 52 bhp at 6,200 rpm and 60 Nm at 4,900 rpm. The V7 III Limited also runs on an 18-inch front wheel, 17-inch rear wheel combination, suspended from a 40 mm hydraulic telescopic front fork and twin shock absorbers at the rear. The frame is a double cradle tubular steel chassis and the V7 III Limited tips the scales with around 210 kg kerb weight.
