Moto Guzzi V7 Stone Ten launches as tribute to fans

The Moto Guzzi V7 Stone Ten has been launched at the Motor Bike Expo in Verona as a tribute to the Moto Guzzi owners's club

Moto Guzzi V7 Stone Ten

At the Motor Bike Expo at Verona in northern Italy, a new motorcycle has been launched by Moto Guzzi in the form of the new Moto Guzzi V7 Stone Ten.

Taking the Moto Guzzi V7 Stone as a base, the Italian marque applies a new paint scheme: white with a split stripe down the centre of the tank, on one side solid black, the other a black and white chequered pattern. In combination with black wheels and trim, red eagle logos on the side of the tank, bar end mirrors, and red springs on the twin shocks, the Guzzi V7 Stone Ten is quite the looker.

It shifts, too, and a little bit faster than the regular V7 Stone. This is down to a new exhaust from Arrow, which boosts power from the 850cc twin-cylinder motor to 66.5bhp (up from 64bhp) and torque to 55lb ft (up from 54lb ft). The exhaust also features Moto Guzzi branding on the tailpipes.

But what about the relatively odd and uninspiring name? Well, it’s down to Moto Guzzi’s owners’ club, ‘The Clan’, which celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2024 and is 50,000 strong. It’s a pretty unusual reason for a special edition, but it’s hard to complain about a manufacturer celebrating its own fans in such a way.

The Moto Guzzi V7 Stone Ten will be available at the Italian brand’s own dealer network from April 2024, priced at €10,499, which equates to around £9,000.
