There are many twin-cylinder engines globally, but none can compete against the transversal V Twin engine designed by Moto Guzzi.

In the third evolution, it has been completely revamped concerning the unit that equipped the V7 II intending to raise riding pleasure to the maximum and guarantee higher performance and reliability. The base of the engine is made of aluminum and it is stiffened in the focal points. It approves a crankshaft with inertia calculated to return vitality and an adequate engine brake. An all-new lubrication system in the crankcase has been designed to dissipate heat in the best possible way efficiently.

The oil pump intake duct is unique and it is related to the by-pass valve and new piston cooling oil jets that have been introduced with flow control and management valve.
