From the time it was introduced it was cleverly called "eurocustom" because, although maintaining the typical characterisations of this type of bike such as the low saddle, wide handlebars and the moderately forward placed footrests, it provides a riding position which is less stretched and which allows greater control of the motorcycle. Basically it translated the custom spirit into a language that everyone can understand, appealing to bikers from all different backgrounds and experiences. The Moto Guzzi Nevada never gave in to the temptation to replicate the American inspired ornamental style so typical of this segment, keeping its design and technical personality intact. This is a choice which, together with the superior road qualities that stem from a faultless chassis, allowed it to overcome momentary fashion, making it the most effective proselytism activist toward the Moto Guzzi world.
Particularly appealing to female riders who appreciate the low weight and agility, the Nevada is suited for any use, including long range touring. Equipped with side bags, top box and a windshield, the Nevada transforms into a comfortable and practical Grand Tourism bike,
economical with fuel and maintenance thanks to the final cardan joint drive which characterises the two cylinders from Mandello del Lario.
Standard equipment is of the highest quality with Marzocchi forks at the front and twin adjustable shock absorbers at the rear. The excellent brakes feature a single front 320mm disc and a four-piston caliper while there is a 260mm disc at the rear. Electronic fuel injection provides silky smooth performance and emission levels have been lowered by new engine management software.
Agile and manageable to suit any rider.
To make the Nevada 750 highly versatile meant creating a frame that was just as good at dealing with the daily business of city roundabouts as at negotiating mountain passes without losing any of Moto Guzzi s traditional touring characteristics.
The frame has been manufactured with the highest quality materials to provide superb road holding and stability that make it easy and a pleasure to ride not just for inexperienced riders but for experts too. The key to the bike lies in its twin cradle frame with removable bolt-on lower components. Great attention was paid to the steering geometry where the rake is set at 27 °50 to ensure stability and precision when cornering. Of no less importance are the 40 mm Marzocchi forks. Travel on the front suspension is 130 mm and works in combination with two adjustable rear shock absorbers with, as such as the front, 130 mm travel. Braking is looked after by a 320 mm floating disc at the front and a 260 mm disc at the rear. The V7 Classic is fitted with 18 wheels up front and 16 at the rear with high profile tyres so as to offer superb handling and feed-back characteristics.
Torque for fun and all the power you need
Famed for its reliability and low consumption, the 744 cc 90 ° V twin 744 cc (bore and stroke - 80 mm by 74 mm) houses special graphite low wear pistons and aluminium alloy cylinders.
The small block from Mandello is fed by an electronic Weber Marelli fuel injection system with 36 mm throttle bodies and a Lambda probe that puts the engine firmly into the Euro 3 homologation category. The five-speed gearbox is precise with neutral easy to find and the ratios have been chosen for touring purposes to provide an exciting, immediate response. In terms of maximum performance, maximum torque of 54.7 Nm comes in at only 3600 rpm. That doesn t mean poor acceleration however as the maximum power output of nearly 50 CV is synchronised to perfection with the characteristics of the Nevada. This bike has no need to race against the clock, it just has to enjoy itself. Like every Moto Guzzi, the booming sound from the V twin says it all.
It has to be said that the music from the Nevada s twin exhausts is probably the best ever from any Moto Guzzi.
