Moto Guzzi V7 Stone Special Edition

Moto Guzzi has pulled the wraps off a new special edition version of the Moto Guzzi V7 Stone retro-inspired roadster, the (imaginatively titled) Moto Guzzi V7 Stone Special Edition.

Revealed at the recent Moto Guzzi World Days event, the Special Edition adopts an understated and discreet look relative to the standard V7 Stone on which it is based.

Unlike its matte-finish stablemates, the V7 Stone Special Edition goes for a glossy ‘Shining Black’ paint job with red colour pops that evoke the firm’s low key sporting heritage.

Red painted shock absorber springs and contrasting stitching on the saddle can also be found, as can a plate identifying this as the ‘Special Edition’ to be found on the handlebar, plus refuelling cap in black and head covers in brand new graphite colour.

Unique to the Special Edition, an Arrow exhaust with Moto Guzzi branding completes the look and even helps raise the power ever so slightly from the 850cc engine compared with the standard V7 Stone, up from 64bhp to 66bhp at 6,700rpm.

The Moto Guzzi V7 Stone Special Edition hits the showrooms in October at a European mainland price of €9,999.

Elsewhere, the storied Italian manufacturer also used its annual celebration of all things Moto Guzzi to present its all-new V100 Mandello [below] to the wider public ahead of it going on sale in the coming weeks.

A sportsbike inspired tourer to rival the Ducati SuperSport 950 and MV Agusta Turismo Veloce, the V100 Mandello is the first all-new model from the firm since the V85TT adventure-tourer-scrambler went on sale in 2019.
