The Sport fully deserved its name, as this breakthrough model for Guzzi was the first truly sporting machine to be built using the Mandello del Lario firm's transverse V-twin engine.

For V7 Sport use, the touring motor was made more powerful and compact. Bore and stroke dimensions of 82.5 x 70 mm gave capacity of 748cc, reduced from the 757cc of earlier models (including the V7 Special), allowing entry in 750cc races.
