More than half a century after the launch of its very first model, Moto Guzzi proudly presents an important new evolution in the story of the V7 with greater performance and comfort than ever, for the perfect mix of classic style and modern technology.
Rest assured that two things haven’t changed, however, and they are the indomitable character and authenticity that are entrenched in the DNA of every Moto Guzzi bike.
Stylish new side panels, a shorter rear mudguard and new exhaust system all come together to create a seductive silhouette. On the performance side of things, there are a host of new features designed to improve stability and comfort, while the famous handling of Moto Guzzi’s best seller remains as impeccable as ever.
Maximum power leaps by 25% from 52 horsepower at 6200 rpm to 65 horsepower at 6800 rpm. There’s also a hefty increase in torque, from 60 Nm at 4250 rpm to an impressive 73 Nm at 5000 rpm, with more than 80% available at 3000 rpm.
The Moto Guzzi V7 Stone comes with new full LED optics, including the front headlight with DRL in the outline of the Guzzi eagle, while the new LCD single-face circular fully-digital instrument panel is totally in keeping with the bike’s sleek, contemporary style.
New sports style aluminium wheels adorn the Stone with the rear boasting a wider tyre section of 150/70.
The transverse 90-degree V engine has long been the hallmark of Moto Guzzi and this V7 is no exception, now is derived from the “All Terrain” V85 TT. We’re talking about the latest and most advanced ever built at Mandello, designed to deliver improved performance and overall efficiency and take reliability and riding enjoyment to a whole new level.
The V7 has long been an icon and its distinctive identity is part of motorcycling history, but this latest model to exit Mandello takes it up another notch in the design stakes. This is a more complete version than its predecessor, in fact, you could even say it’s more mature and grown up, with its larger engine and exhaust pipes with revamped layout making an assured visual statement. Towards the rear, both the universal joint transmission and wheel have been enlarged, while the Kayaba shock absorbers are more robust than before.
The chassis now features steel elements in the steering head area, while the new longer-travel twin shock absorbers, two-tier saddle and updated rider foot peg supports all make for a more comfortable riding experience.
The V7 Stone introduces two striking new colours, with an intense metallic yellow and elegant aluminium grey, designed to showcase the bike’s lines for a pared-back, contemporary and cutting-edge look.
The latest V7 STONE retains its essential characteristics, shaken up in more contemporary design, with revamped side panels embellished with a new-look logo, black exhausts and aluminium rims giving the bike a more elegant appearance and showcasing its unmistakable metropolitan personality.
New iconic graphics on the fuel tank speak to the new engine capacity, while a host of smart chromatic details distinguish its shape and colour, with finishes that blend tradition and innovation to perfection, such as the spoked wheels with polished aluminium channels and black hubs, an instrument panel with two analogue circular dials and the bulb-like headlight.
To mark 100 years of Moto Guzzi, the V7 sports a prestigious centenary livery and perfectly encapsulating the brand’s heritage, history, elegance and sporting character.
