The ‘Carbon’, Rough’ and ‘Milano’ share the same 38kW/60Nm 744cc transverse v-twin as the existing V7 III, as well as that model’s six-speed gearbox, steel cradle frame, 40mm tele fork front end and twin shock rear, Brembo front brake, 18-inch/17-inch wheel combo and a 21-litre fuel tank.
Of the three Special Edition models, the V7 III Carbon is limited to just 1,921 individually-numbered units (reflecting Moto Guzzi’s foundation year) and defined by carbon fibre side panels and a black satin finish for the fuel tank, engine and exhaust.
Complementing this is gloss black on the suspension and wheels, as well as black anodized trim parts. Contrast red features on the cylinder heads, calipers and tank badging, while the seat adds red contrast stitching.
Described as “urban country”, the V7 III Rough swaps the alloy rims for wire spoke wheels and adds semi-knobby tyres, as well as its own seat trim and a satin silver finish for the engine.
Sidecovers are aluminium, as are the longer mudguards, while features shared with the Carbon include the black finish on the engine, suspension, headlight trim and other detail parts, as well as that model’s old-school rubber fork gaiters.
The Milano version brings a bit more bling to the V7 III, with parts from the current V7 III Special including a full chrome exhaust, chrome mirrors, bar ends, headlight trim and pillion grab rail, as well as that model’s twin-gauge instrumentation.
A gloss grey tank finish is unique to the Milano, while features taken from the other limited editions include the Carbon’s wheels and the Rough’s side covers and mudguards.
Pricing for the V7 III Special Editions starts at $15,890 for the Rough, $16,390 for the Milano and $16,890 for the Carbon (all prices exclude ORCs). Check your Moto Guzzi dealer for availability and further details.
