It's back to basics time, as Moto Guzzi shows their 2012 V7 Classic machine. Harking back to the way they used to make motorcycles in the 70's, this bike brings about solid retro spirit backed by present-day technology to provide riders with a remedy for their nostalgia while putting serious power and maneuverability at their disposal.

Sporting the iconic transverse v-twin, the one-piece seat and many other distinctive elements of tradition, the 2012 V7 Classic is a nifty modern replica of old-school bikes, carrying on the acclaimed fame of the Mandello manufacturer.
