Motorcycle: Moto Guzzi V11
Customizer: Seven Motors
Rider: Leonardo Schingaro
As newcomers on the Italian custom motorcycle scene, Benny Lombardo and Antonello Zonna of Seven Motors from Verona searched for professional partners to help them with their 2-wheel creation. So the Moto Guzzi V11 that they plan to conquer the Essenza Sprints with was made in collaboration with Customcreations from Isernia and Fuchs Workshop from Ravenna. The elegant Cafe Racer stands out for its convincing hand-formed bodywork. Many of the parts are milled from solid aluminum, which completes the clean look of the bike. For the 1100 cc engine, Seven Motors placed their trust in the “old master” Bruno Scola. He took on the ambitious project and optimized the combustion chambers, installed a sport camshaft and Keihin FCR41 flat slide carburetors – and achieved around 120 horsepower.
Leo “The Bull” Schingaro isn’t just the mechanic for Seven Motor’s participation in the Essenza Sprints, he will also be riding the Moto Guzzi V11. As a technician in the motxracing team at the “Supersport 300”-WM and a “1000 Open” racer, the Italian is perfectly qualified.
