2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Stone Street Bike

The rich aesthetic and personal meanings of the V7 III Stone set it apart. It’s eclectic and essential, eschewing chrome elements in favor of the matte black paintwork, complementing a revolutionary new matching passenger grasp strap. A black-light setting and the eagle that adorns the fuel tank, produced with a specific burnished finish, complete the overall “dark matte” impression. But these aren’t the only changes between the 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Stone Street Bike and the other versions: the front mudguard is trimmed and painted to match the gasoline tank, emphasizing the model’s fundamental essence. The wheels are spoked, and there is a single circular display in the instrument cluster.

The new 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Stone Street Bike is now available in two new satin finish color schemes, Grigio Granitico and Rosso Rovente and Nero Ruvido. The Night Pack version of the V7 III Stone is distinguished by substantial cosmetic and functional improvements, the first of which is the installation of new LED lights that provide tremendous illumination power for the turn indicators, headlight, and taillight.

Owning and Riding

The Moto Guzzi entry-level model will continue to be the third generation of Mandello’s “seven-fifty.” It has a powerful and original character, characteristic of all Moto Guzzi motorcycles, much of which is shown by the transversal V-twin engine, a one-of-a-kind arrangement. It is also easy to ride and one of the most contained in the category in terms of size and weight. The fundamental driving forces behind its development were style, standard equipment, and road performance, in other words, factors that impact the enjoyment of owning and riding a V7.

Styling

The 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Stone Street Bike keeps the model’s aesthetic individuality, with a form that communicates with shapes inspired by the tradition of Moto Guzzi while still meeting current motorcycle standards. The presence of brand new twin-pipe exhaust manifolds and engine heads, both having oversized proportions, offers the feeling of being in the existence of a robust and mature bike, despite the V7 III Stone proving to be one of the most approachable and streamlined bikes. An attractive metal fuel tank, on the other hand, has continued unchanged, with its superb 21 liters of fuel carrying capacity and appearance inspired, as always, by the spectacular 1971 V7 Sport. The brand new injector covers and side fairings, with their streamlined design, also stand out for their elegant elegance. Each 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Stone Street Bike model features its saddle, complete with diverse graphics and coatings.

The 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Stone Street Bike comes with a single circular instrument display. The rev counter is shown in a second circular display on the Special and Racer models. All other information is contained in the digital box, including the odometer, partial and daily trip (resets automatically eight hours after being switched off), trip time, instantaneous and average consumption, air temperature, average speed, and the MGCT (traction control) level, as well as the engaged gear indicator, for which the user can adjust the minimum and maximum rpm value.

Chassis

Moto Guzzi is known for its ability to create unique chassis. The V7’s enjoyable ride dates back to 1970 when the V7 Police was chosen to join the LAPD (Los Angeles Police Department) squad following a rigorous set of tests, establishing the Larian brand’s expertise on the subject even internationally. The steel frame retains the double-cradle tubular layout and the same weight distribution (46 percent front; 54 percent rear) as previous V7 generations; however, the third generation features an entirely revamped and reinforced front end with different steering geometry to ensure better dynamic performance through the turns, as well as better handling and stability.

The meticulous care and finish of the details, particularly the welding and painting, has received particular attention. The rear suspension system is comprised of a pair of Kayaba shock absorbers that are spring preloaded and give a progressive and controlled reaction in every condition, even while riding two-up, owing to their exceptional quality and the inclination of the mounting point to the frame.

The low and forward arrangement of the footpegs ensures a comfortable sitting posture for the passenger. Because of the lower saddle (770 mm from the ground) and the proper performance of the aluminum footpegs, the brand new saddle-handlebar-foot peg triangulation is excellent for riders of all heights.

Small block engine: unique character and sound

There are many outstanding twin-cylinder engines in the world, but only one transverse V, and that is the Moto Guzzi twin, which was born back in 1967 thanks to Giulio Cesare Carcano’s outstanding intuition and is renowned for a unique cylinder configuration that became an integral part of the bike’s design, like an accurate modern art metallic sculpture. It has been redesigned entirely compared to the unit that powered the V7 II to enhance riding enjoyment while ensuring improved dependability and performance.

The changes made a year ago that affected the top end of the engine, with new aluminum cylinder heads, cylinders, and pistons in comparison to the Moto Guzzi V7 II, despite the bore and stroke, and the displacement, remaining the same, authorizing the V7 III’s position as a Moto Guzzi entry-level motorcycle range. A single-body Marelli electronic injection system is responsible for controlling the fuel system and an electronic control unit controls it. The brand new dual pipe manifolds are used in the exhaust system that helps in thermal insulation. The Moto Guzzi V-Twin 750 meets the strict Euro-4 criteria thanks to the auxiliary air system intake, the trivalent catalytic converter, the engine architecture, and the double lambda probe.

At 6200 rpm, the maximum power output is 52 hp. In comparison, the maximum torque output is 60 Nm at 4900 rpm, with a flat torque curve that enhances the simplicity of use paired with that distinctive Moto Guzzi character and swift reaction. A reduced-power version is also available, following the constraints imposed by the A2 class driver’s license, and is excellent for beginning Guzzi riders, which can also benefit from the V7 III’s overall weight and size, as well as the general ease of riding. The Moto Guzzi engine also has a 170 mm dry single disc clutch, which improves durability and dependability over time while reducing the strain on the lever at the handlebar, all to the benefit of mouldability and riding pleasure. The new six-speed gearbox is precise and smooth in shifting and it is identical to the V7 II. Still, it now has a somewhat longer first and sixth gear ratio that is helpful for better using the engine’s power and torque capabilities.

Safety: A Moto Guzzi asset

When it comes to the rider’s safety, the Moto Guzzi brand has always been at the top of its game. The ABS braking system of the V7 III is adjustable, and the MGCT (Moto Guzzi Traction Control) system may be turned off. The first is a two-channel Continental system, preserves the wheels from locking up, while the second is a system that saves the rear wheel from spinning during acceleration.

The new MGCT system comes with two sensitivity settings; one is more conservative and appropriate for low grip surfaces like wet or slick asphalt, while the other is built for the excitement of riding safely on dry roads. Another feature of the system is its ability to re-calibrate the rear tire circumference to recompense for wear or its usage of a tire with a various profile than the original, guaranteeing that traction control remains exact.
The new 2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Stone Street Bike maintains the model’s aesthetic individuality, with a form that connects with shapes inspired by Moto Guzzi tradition while still meeting current motorcycle standards.
