Based on the previous V700, the V7 Special featured several upgrades that boosted performance and increased reliability. A bore increase (from 80 to 83mm) netted a new displacement of 757cc. In 1968, the motorcycle market reeled in shock at the appearance of the first Italian maxi motorcycle. Created by the legendary Giulio Cesare Carcano, the Moto Guzzi V7 marked the debu engine that set a record at that time.
