In 1967 the first big Italian bike appeared on the motorcycle market: the Moto Guzzi V7. The new V7 Stone changes everything yet remains true to that Moto Guzzi V7 heritage. For new or returning riders, or anyone who just wants a no frills, just thrills classic, the Moto Guzzi V7 Stone is a rock solid choice.

Featuring a new and more powerful, 750cc, 90-degree V-Twin motor and new lightweight, six split spoke alloy wheels, the V7 Stone lets riders conquer the road with spirit.
The completely reengineered engine still relies on the engineering that made the Moto Guzzi V50 a success among riders in 1977. Since then the engine has been continuously updated yet stays faithful to the original genial layout introduced by Italian engineer Lino Tonti in the 70s.
While maintaining the classic 90° V configuration, the engine is now comprised of more than 70% new components. Cutting-edge technological solutions improve functionality, provide greater torque and power even at low rpms, and make the V7 more efficient, with higher fuel economy and reduced emissions.
The design of the V7 Stone tells of the historic lineage of the model through a mix of forms and volumes which cite the famous ancestors, from the V7 750 Special remembered in the accents and the side panels, to the V7 Sport, which influenced the tank, also new in the V7 Stone.
The new tank brings with it a superior metal construction that allows for a lighter tank along with a greater fuel capacity – the V7 Stone can hold a record 5.8 gallons which, together with reduced consumption, ensures a range of up to 310 miles. This is further proof of the design philosophy that has guided the entire V7 family: engineering innovation is always intended to restore pleasure to the rider of gripping a real, resounding metal tank in true Moto Guzzi tradition.
The rest of the V7 design confirms the alchemy of tradition and modernism that was introduced in 2008 with the first V7 Classic. New lightweight, alloy wheels allow for a reduction in weight at the front and rear, translating to greater agility on the road and cruising through turns. Trimmed with chrome accents, enthusiasts will appreciate the V7 Stone’s cigar shaped silencers and instrument panel dials.
Available in Matte Black or Pure White, the minimalist colors combined with chrome accents are sure to make the V7 Stone a showstopper on the road or at any café, restaurant or local hot spot.
The Moto Guzzi V7 Stone, iconic and prestigiously manufactured in Italy, is available now in U.S. dealerships.

Silodrome ---- "The stock model Moto Guzzi V7 Stone is actually one of our favourite new motorcycles, it weighs in at a fairly light 179kgs and that v-twin produces 50hp and 42.7 ft lbs of torque. It has a shaft-drive meaning the regular greasy-fingered chain-tightening proceedure many of us often go through is eliminated, the rear end his held aloft by 2 spring preload-adjustable Bitubo shock absorbers and the front-end by telescopic hydraulic forks with 40 mm stanchions."
Motorcycle-usa ---- “It has a lot of torque but that’s basically all it has,” says Garcia in regards to the V7’s motor performance. “It goes okay right off the line but the power flattens out as the rpm increase. It’s kind of like driving a turbo diesel truck in the way you have to short shift it to try and ride the torque curve.”
Totalmotorcycle ---- "A change in look, now more imposing in form and capacity, the new tank brings with it a superior material perception of metal with respect to polyethylene, the material which was used to make the previous unit. This is thanks to the most advanced moulding technologies which allow construction of a metallic tank which is the same size, but lighter and with greater capacity compared to the previous polyethylene unit, reaching a record value of 22 litres which, together with the reduced consumption, ensures a range of up to 500 km. This is further proof of the design philosophy that guided the entire V7 project where innovation of the processes restored the pleasure to the rider of gripping a real, resounding metal tank in true Moto Guzzi tradition."
