The Moto Guzzi V7 II was born out of the radical and energetic work done on the engine and the chassis where every possible path was explored to increase the level of safety, ergonomics and comfort in short, the pleasure of riding.
It’s not just an expression, the Moto Guzzi V7 II truly has an extra gear.
I bought my Moto Guzzi V7 Stone II in matte gray a little over 2 weeks ago. I love mine. I agree with you on pretty much all the points you made especially with the gears being a little too quiet when shifting. And with no gear indicator, I have to really pay attention to what gear I am in. The engine braking is one of the strongest I have encountered as well. The price is what also sold me on this and the fact that there are few Guzzi’s riding around my area. I love Moto Guzzi V7 Stone II!
