Yes, but Triumph doesn't charge you $10 for $5 suspension.

Google Moto Guzzi V7 Classic reviews and several mags were very favorable toward the V7.

Great looking little thing. Underline little. I can't figure out the reviewers. They pan the Bonnevilles for lack of power [they are correct] , yet this 750 has even less than the Bonny.

On this bike it's not about the power. and the original v7 was pretty small.

I think if those guzzis were 1100, we'd all buy one and many triumph riders would also jump ship, especially the cafe model.

I really like the new Guzzi V7, especially w/ black tank and side covers although I really dislike black engine cases and fork legs.....Add the lack of HP and I'd have be very smitten in person to jump on one.
Lets hope someone comes out w/ a realistic retro standard soon.

I agree with Motoretro. I'd love to see another Triumph retro triple, a la the Thunderbird Sport. Great looks, great motor, and the name brand (which I'll admit still matters to me). Why else deal with the inadequacies of the current retro bikes when a modern standard can be had for a better price with equivalent, if not superior performance?

...but I'd still love to put any of the bikes posted here in my garage any day. For me, its a toss up between the Thruxton and the GT1000.
