It was the first motorcycle brand with a front V-twin for the road and this configuration would become characteristic of this constructor. The V7 would experience several changes, including the famous V7 Sport designed by Lino Tonti, and presented in 1971, which had a lower frame and a more powerful engine, one of the first motorcycles in series production to get to 200 km/h. This will be followed by the S version, which had an improved braking system and some mechanical modifications. The V7 Sport 750 S family is one of the most iconic of all Guzzis.
