The 1981 MY Moto Guzzi V 50 II sports an air-cooled, four-stroke, 490cc, V-twin powerhouse mated to a five-speed manual transmission, and can produce 45 horsepower at 7500 rpm.

It comes standard with a number of features that make it a favorite among Moto Guzzi fans, such as the dual front disc brakes, a shaft drive, and a rather low dry weight of 152 kg (335 pounds).
