LIMITED AND NUMBERED EDITION
More than fifty years after its birth, one of the best known and most successful names ever hung on a motorcycle produced by Moto Guzzi is back, synonym of construction quality, versatility and inimitable style.
The new Stornello stands out with its numerous prestigious Italian made parts and the dedicated selection of colour schemes which enhance its charm and elegance. Available in a limited and numbered edition, the V7 II Stornello is the latest representative of Moto Guzzi's exclusive ability to create truly factory specials, with a singular attention to quality and painstaking attention to detail. Like a collector's item.
The year was 1967 when Moto Guzzi introduced the Stornello Scrambler America, a more offroad version created on the technical base of the Stornello, but less specialised than the Regolarità model and therefore intended for a truly varied range of riders. Actually Moto Guzzi had already explored the possibility of creating, based on a street model, a version suited for soft offroad, with the Lodola in 1957, the single cylinder which was also available in the Regolarità version, suited for various destinations with just a few, but select changes, such as the clawed wheels, the flat and long saddle, and the high exhaust closely attached to the vehicle. It was the dawn of a new range of motorcycles that would soon be part of the new scrambler segment. This is further demonstration of how Moto Guzzi, during its long heritage of commercial and sport success which began in 1921, has come through the years without following fashion, often paving the technical and stylistic roads which everyone would soon follow.
So the new Moto Guzzi V7 II Stornello was created with the advantage of a solid tradition of more than fifty years to take on the exceptional popular demand for a version of the V7 II with these characteristics. As always, the founding concept was observed: built on the technical base of the iconic and ultra popular V7 II, a model was created suited for riding on any type of terrain, from congested city traffic to a pleasant solo or two-up ride on the roads that bikers love best. The new Stornello completes the already wide range of V7 II motorcycles made up of the Stone, Special and Racer models. The latter provides the exclusivity of being available in a limited and numbered edition of just one thousand units, as well as the rich package of precious parts as standard equipment (all made in Italy), with painstaking attention to detail, also characterised by finishing and colour schemes dedicated exclusively to this model. Stornello is therefore the most recent Moto Guzzi special range, collector's items which are, as always, strictly hand made in the Mandello del Lario plant.
