The Moto 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Racer Motorcycle has always been the model with the most sporting character in the V7 lineup, serving as its ambassador. The new 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Racer Motorcycle, which initially appeared in 2010 and was followed by the V7 II Racer in 2015 and the V7 III in 2017, reinvents itself in 2020, the tenth anniversary of the birth of the first model, in keeping with tradition.
When seen from the front, the new Moto 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Racer Motorcycle 10th Anniversary is noticeably different from the previous model thanks to a sleek and sporty new top fairing with an integrated windscreen that pays homage to the design of a genuine Café Racer. The full fairing has “10th Anniversary” celebration designs in red, also seen on the saddle cover hump.
2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Racer Motorcycle – Features
Moto Guzzi MIA connects V7 III to the world
The cutting-edge 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Racer Motorcycle MIA multimedia system is an optional extra for the V7 III model line. The bike may be linked to a smartphone using this method. The smartphone (iPhone or Android) becomes a powerful onboard multipurpose computer, the vehicle’s connection to the Internet, thanks to a specialized program that can be downloaded free from the App Store and Google Play.
Bluetooth allows riders to simultaneously view five parameters of rider choice from a comprehensive menu, including the speedometer, rev counters, instant power, instant torque, instant, and average fuel consumption, average speed and battery voltage, longitudinal acceleration and extended trip computers, including the speedometer and rev counters. The “Eco Ride” function reduces fuel usage and promotes environmentally-friendly driving habits while also giving a quick summary of the trip’s environmental impact.
To analyze the route traveled, the rider may examine the vehicle operating characteristics point-by-point on the rider’s computer or smartphone after recording the trip information. It also makes it easy to find the rider’s car when they park in an unfamiliar area since the system remembers where the rider turned it off. MOTORIZED MIA has a “Grip Warning” feature that mimics the traction control operation’s indicators for maximum visibility and warns drivers when the available traction is being used excessively. To understand better turning lean angles, gyroscopes and information from the vehicle’s electronics may be used in conjunction to create a smartphone app.
Owning and riding a V7 is now even more pleasurable
The Mandello “seven-fifty third-generation” will remain the entry-level model for Moto 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Racer Motorcycle. As one of the most maneuverable motorcycles in its class, it also has one of the most influential and most genuine personalities, typified by all 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Racer Motorcycle, much of which is shown by the unique transversal V-twin engine. Style, standard equipment, and road performance were the main driving forces behind its development; in other words, things affect how much fun it is to buy and ride a V7.
Chassis: a guarantee of quality in the Moto Guzzi tradition
Moto 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Racer Motorcycle is well-known for the quality of its motorcycles’ frames. After a series of rigorous testing, the V7 Police was selected to join the LAPD team in 1970, showing the Larian brand’s expertise on the subject even beyond the United States. The V7’s pleasant ride has its roots in the distant past. In keeping with recent V7 tradition, the steel frame has a double cradle tubular laridert and the same weight distribution (46% in front, 54% in back). The third generation, however, features a completely redesigned and reinforced front end with different steering geometry to ensure more excellent dynamic performance through turns and better handling and stability.
The welding and painting, in particular, have received special attention because of the meticulous care and attention they need. Kayaba shock absorbers are used in the rear suspension system. They can be adjusted in spring preload to offer a progressive and controlled response in every scenario, even when riding two people at once. The low and forward placement of the footpegs provides a comfortable sitting posture for the passenger. It’s excellent for riders of any height because of the lower saddle’s (770 mm) and aluminum footpegs’ (the correct position) triangulation.
Small block engine: unique character and sound
However, while there are a lot of significant twin-cylinder engines out there, one stands out: the 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Racer Motorcycle. It was introduced in 1967 due to Giulio Cesare Carcano’s ingenious intuition and is distinguished by its unique cylinder configuration that has become an integral part of the bike’s design, much like a modern metal sculpture. If the rider has a V7 II, the small-block version is in its third generation, and it’s been overhauled in comparison to its previous iteration to improve ride quality while also ensuring increased performance and dependability.
Stiffened in the middle, the aluminum crankcase uses an inertia-calculating crankshaft to provide a pep and a good engine brake. The crankcase lubrication system is designed to maximize heat dissipation while minimizing power absorption for improved performance and lowering fuel consumption. An additional power-saving feature is using an oil pump with a smaller capacity, which may absorb less power because of the crankcase chamber pumping. The oil pump intake duct and by-pass valve are new, and piston cooling oil jets with flow control and management valves have been introduced. The blow-by gas output is located on the alternator’s lid.
Last year’s updates included all-new aluminum cylinder heads, pistons, and rings for the V7 II; nevertheless, the bore and stroke remain unchanged, confirming the V7 III’s status as a 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Racer Motorcycle entry-level motorbike. It is an intelligent move for Moto 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Racer Motorcycle. A pushrod and rocker system with two valves per cylinder, as is customary, controls the timing. Still, the valves are located in the head at an incline position for improved efficiency. Single-body Marelli electronic injection system, managed by the electronic control unit, is in charge of the fuel system. Dual pipe manifolds in the exhaust system assist with thermal insulation. When coupled with the trivalent catalytic converter, the double lambda probe, and the engine architecture, the 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Racer Motorcycle’s engine meets Euro 4 emissions requirements.
The highest power output is 52 hp at 6200 rpm, and the maximum torque is 60 Nm at 4900 rpm. A flat torque curve promises the comfort of use coupled with the distinctive 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Racer Motorcycle character and quick reaction as always. An A2-class driver’s license-compliant variant with decreased power is also available, making it suitable for novice 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Racer Motorcycle riders who can also benefit from the bike’s limited overall weight and size as well as the general ease of riding provided by all V7 III models. To further improve module ability and riding comfort, the 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Racer Motorcycle’s 170 mm dry single disc clutch was included as a unique feature. This clutch improves durability and dependability over time while reducing the load on the lever at the handlebar. The V7 II’s six-speed manual transmission has not altered. Still, the first and sixth gear ratios have been significantly extended to use the engine’s torque and power characteristics.
Safety: a Moto Guzzi asset
When it comes to safety, the 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Racer Motorcycle has always been at the top of its game. The V7 III is equipped with an anti-lock braking system (ABS) and a switchable MGCT (Moto Guzzi Traction Control) system. The former uses a two-channel Continental system; to prevent rear wheel spin during acceleration, the latter uses a system based on an independent rear-wheel drive system. With the MGCT system, the rider can choose between two degrees of sensitivity: one that’s more cautious and good for bad weather conditions like wet or slick asphalt and caters to the pleasure of safe riding on dry roads. Additionally, the MGCT system’s unique feature compensates for the wear or usage of a tire with a different profile than the original by recalibration rear tire circumference. It ensures that traction control is always accurate.
