The 2013 Moto Guzzi V7 Special and Norge GT8V remain unchanged mechanically, but the new colours and graphics do look quite good...!
Things seem to be looking up for Moto Guzzi, with sales up 27.9% in the first quarter of this year (compared with Q1, 2012) and the new California 1400 having been received with much enthusiasm everywhere. For 2013, the Moto Guzzi V7 Special gets new paint/graphics, inspired by the mid-1970s Guzzi 750 Sport S. The new colour options include metallic silver with black stripes and black with orange stripes, with both versions getting an embossed Guzzi logo on the fuel tank and black (instead of chrome) wheels.
The Moto Guzzi Norge GT8V touring bike also gets an aesthetic makeover, with mahogany brown and peal white paint options, along with a silver stripe that runs along the fairing. Both, the V7 and the Norge, remain unchanged mechanically.
