All of the relish of challenges between gentlemen riders comes back to life in the classic sportiness of the V7.

Moto Guzzi V7 Clubman Racer is the end result of extensive tuning inspired by the motorcycles that in the 1970s challenged each other in the modified production category.

Races enlivened by heated rivalry between fans of the Japanese bikes, at the time extremely powerful but hard to handle, and fans of Italian motorcycles, perhaps on the minus side in terms of power but superior to their Oriental challengers when it came to their rigorous chassis and braking. Challenges on the tracks then shifted to tables at bars, where showing off a Moto Guzzi V7 Sport with single-seat saddle, racing exhaust system and the unfailing top fairing was the symbol of belonging to the elite of the sportiest motorcyclists.

The V7 Clubman Racer is the epitome of this snapshot taken more than 30 years ago, and reworks it by adopting the technology and quality standard of today's manufacturing processes.

The latest member of the V7 family is fitted with a top fairing inspired by the legendary 850 LeMans, a single-seat saddle with number plate, and even flaunts a roaring pair of Arrow silencers.

Its footrests moved back and adjustable handlebars make it inviting to take onto the track.

All that a gentleman rider in the mood for track days has to do is put on a helmet and a simple leather suit, find the ideal set-up by adjusting the sophisticated pair of Bitubo shock absorbers and guide the 18 inch front wheel as close as possible to the kerb.

The strong personality of the Moto Guzzi V7 Clubman Racer is also underscored by details like the chrome tank complete with knee guard, rear-view mirrors anchored to the ends of the handlebar, the chrome Moto Guzzi logo ornaments and the new racing fuel tank cap.

The rest of the bike follows the features of the V7 Cafè with regard to both chassis geometry, with its double cradle design and lower elements bolted on and removable, and to the geometry with the headstock tilted at 26°50'. In addition to the multi-adjustable Bitubo shock absorbers, the suspension banks on the absorption capacity of the Marzocchi fork with 40 mm stanchions and 130 mm travel.

The braking system consists of a 320 mm floating front disc and a 260 mm disc in the rear, while the spoke wheels have the same diameter as those of the V7 Cafè but instead of high profile tyres, they are equipped with the higher performance and aesthetically pleasing Pirelli Demon Sport, with a larger 140/70 tyre in rear.

All owners of V7 bikes can find all of the parts supplied standard on the V7 Clubman Racer in the new Moto Guzzi accessories catalogue, available separately.
