The Racer is cool enough out of the box, but if you add one of these fairings:

Guzzi V7 gains endurance racer kit - Motorcycle news: New bikes - Visordown

Fugeddaboudit.

Yeah, it really makes the bike. I don't know if the kit is available in the US, that's a UK site that has the article. It's 1,300 Pounds...which is what, about $18 American?

FYI the 2012 V7 bikes in the US do NOT have the new motors that the 2012 bikes have in Europland.

It makes it look almost as good as that Duc SportClassic 1000S!

Glad to see Guzzi making some money with the V7 and variants. Now how about some new big block Guzzis?

What's wrong with the new Stelvio NTX, revised Norge 8V, or my favourite, the Griso SE?

All are fantastic bikes.

Yes indeed, Huss. The Norge 8V is my favorite Guzzi. They are as you say, all fantastic bikes.
