Moto Guzzi websites show the V7III as having 38 kw. Stamped on the headstock, and on my newly arrived Portuguese registration, is 34 kw. I'm going to the dealer tomorrow to have a couple of bits fitted, so while I'm there I'll see if he can shed any light. Any theories, anyone?

Well, the dealer doesn't know. However, he's hosting a Guzzi ride Saturday and I'm told there will be Guzzi tech reps there to dispel our clouds of ignorance. Stay tuned.

And now, the answer you've all been waiting for...

Both.  Kinda.

According to the man from Piaggio Group, the V7III comes with 38kw, but can be restricted to 34kw for an A2 licensee.  The difference is in the mapping.  Mine should have 38kw, and I can have that checked at the first service.  if it's set for 34, it can be adjusted.  That's my understanding.

The fact that 34kw is stamped on the headstock, and the authorities think it has 34kw, seems rather dodgy if in fact it has 38.
