This is more Sportster than Sport.

It's super cool though.

The Sport Classic Ducati's would hose this or the Thruxton.

It would be fun to rent one and putter around for a day. 40hp might get kind of dull after a while.

My recent lengthy test ride on the V7 Stone suggests otherwise. At least to me it did.

There was plenty of entertaining oomph from 0 to 60, couple that with it's very light and neutral handling and I was smiling the entire time.

My 1050 Sprint is exciting whereas the V7 Stone is fun. I think I'm ready for some fun.

A comparo I'd like to see:

Triumph Bonneville (cast wheels) --- M-G V7 Stone
Triumph Bonneville T100 --- M-G V7 Special
Triumph Thruxton --- M-G V7 Racer

Damn, that thing is cool as hell.

Think American, as in blatant over the top excess is just enough. One of these with the big 4V engine in out of the just reviewed California 1400 would be a cake and eating too motorcycle. All that coolness with all that grunt, punting the rider around pretty forcefully at casual rpm. Add some FI tuning and proper exhaust cans for increased response and the oh so cool Guzzi soundtrack. Sounds fun - gimme gimme...

I hope Moto Guzzi's bikes are better than their website. Man, it's a mess. Just navigating the site is hard enough, the content is even worse.

They need to hire a new Webmaster.
