V7 Mk3 Stone 2018

To celebrate the fifty year anniversary of the first model, Moto Guzzi introduces the V7 III. The third generation of the Moto Guzzi that is known and loved all over the world has been completely revamped: every detail has been fine-tuned to maximise owner satisfaction and riding pleasure, leaving the originality and authenticity typical of this iconic motorcycle unaltered.
 
 
V7 is one of the most celebrated and well-known Moto Guzzi models. This world fame is due to its ability to remain faithful to the expectations and reputation of a legendary brand like Moto Guzzi. Since 1967, the year the first units were sold in Italy, the V7 became a pillar of the product range and the representative of the Italian motorcycle par excellence, standing out for its content and design, highly popular with a truly transversal and varied public.
Fifty years later, Moto Guzzi introduces the third act of a first work: V7 III. The challenge of introducing a new version of such a famous motorcycle with such a rich heritage and so much success is one of the most difficult, considering the fact that the V7, the brand's best-seller since 2009, constitutes the Moto Guzzi entry-level bike, dedicated to both women and men, in addition to young people who want to proudly own one of the most iconic Mandello del Lario production motorcycles. 
As was the case with the V7 II compared with the first-born V7, for the V7 III the revamping is profound enough to merit a new progressive number in Roman numerals, that has always distinguished the most popular and long-lasting Moto Guzzi bikes, such as the Le Mans and the California. V7 III is the result of Moto Guzzi's modern passion and courage, able and skilled in renewing its best-seller, leaving the character and authenticity unaltered, two values that are destined to weather the test of time. 
 
V7 III is available in the three well-known and popular versions, Stone, Special and Racer that, compared with the past, now take on stronger connotations and differ more from one another. Consistent with the other Moto Guzzi models in the range, the V7 III also has a dark version that stands out for its total black graphics. It is the Stone and a more classic one dominated by chroming, more in line with the design of the forerunner, which is the Special. The Racer, on the other hand, represents the successful sports heritage of Moto Guzzi, a winner of 15 world titles and 11 Tourist Trophies when the decision was made to retire from racing (in 1957). The V7 range has now been expanded: Moto Guzzi pays homage to fifty years of the V7 model by introducing a fourth version, called the Anniversario, a numbered edition limited to just 750 units, characterized by brand new and exclusive details. The “seven-fifty” from Mandello has proven to be an excellent base foundation for customization projects. In fact, it was protagonist of Lord of the Bikes, the first TV talent show dedicated to motorcycle customizing, broadcast in Italy on Sky, that took Moto Guzzi onto the small screen. The original Moto Guzzi accessories range, already quite rich for the V7 II, was created as a supplementary part of the project and it has been expanded even farther. The V7 III therefore lends itself exceptionally well to customization, so you can create your own made to measure special, like a tailor fitted garment.

The third generation of the “seven-fifty” from Mandello continues to be the Moto Guzzi entry-level model, easy to ride, with the most contained size and weight in its category. The primary goals that led this evolution had to do with style, standard equipment and performance on the road, in other words, aspects that influence the pleasure of owning and riding a V7.


V7 III is available in three popular versions: Stone, Special, and Racer, as well as a fourth, limited-edition Anniversario model.


V7 III Stone now has stronger and more personal aesthetic connotations than its predecessor. The total “dark matte” look characterizes the V7 III and distinguishes it from the other versions, The V7 III Stone is the only one of the “four-of-a-kind” to have spoked wheels and single circular display instrumentation. The front fender has also been shortened in order to highlight the essential look of this model.


Key Facts

  • New Sports Engine

While it retains the air-cooled, two-valve, pushrod, longitudinal-crankshaft design and the 80 x 74mm bore and stroke, the V7 III is still new. Up top, the cylinders, alluminium heads and pistons are completely new. Down below, the crankcase has been updated and there’s a new oil sump, crankshaft and venting system.


The exhaust system is also new, fitted with double pipe manifolds that improve thermal insulation. All said, the new Guzzi Twin is a more efficient, better-performing engine that complies with Euro 4 emission standards.

  • More Power

Maximum power increased 10% thanks to the introduction of the new engine. Horse power is now 52 horses at 6200 rpm, with torque topping at 44ft/lbs at just 4900 rpm.

  • Multimedia Platform

The rich catalogue of dedicated accessories includes the MG-MP, the Moto Guzzi multimedia platform that connects your smartphone to your vehicle, providing an exceptional quantity of useful travel information.

  • New chassis architecture

The steel frame maintains the dismountable double cradle layout of its predecessor and the same weight distribution (46% front; 54% rear), but the front part has been completely revamped and reinforced, also introducing a new steering geometry that guarantees a more dynamic ride in corners, better handling and stability, thereby meeting all the riding needs of the modern biker.


The pair of Kayaba shock absorbers is new, adjustable in spring preload: thanks to their superior quality and the greater inclination on the fixing point to the frame, they provide a more progressive and controlled response in any situation, even when riding two-up.


The passenger can also count on a comfortable seating position, thanks to the repositioning of the foot pegs, lower and farther forward. The rider's position changes, although not by much, with the lower saddle (now 770 mm from the ground) and the new aluminium foot pegs.

Other new style elements include:

  • new design injector covers
  • sleeker side fairings
  • new saddle with brand new and dedicated graphics for each model.
  • new turn indicators
  • the mirrors, 40 mm wider in order to increase visibility
  • The aluminium fuel cap is no longer flush with the tank line, but it is a screw cap and, as previously, it has a lock.
