For 2014, Piaggio has continued polishing the V7. Improved fuel injection, says Moto Guzzi, results in prompter yet more tractable throttle response, and the bike is also said to be more fuel-efficient. In European mixed-riding tests, the V7 gets 58.6 mpg. Claimed horsepower remains 48 hp at 6,200 rpm, and the peak torque (pegged at 44.2 pound-feet) is reached at only 2800 rpm. This gives the V7 has a wide, 3400-rpm band of optimal engine efficiency and performance, which is another one of the bike’s fine points.
