After the release of the V7 II Stornello Limited Edition at EICMA last year Moto Guzzi Australia confirm just 10 of the bikes are destined for our shores.
Moto Guzzi engineer, Giulio Cesare Carcano and his staff created the original Stornello in 1960. The Stornello was an entry level motorcycle which was light and easy to manage. The single cylinder 25° forward inclined engine boasted 7 HP and reached a top speed of 100 km/h.
The double cradle open steel tube frame was welded entirely by a machine built specifically for the purpose. The Stornello was a popular model throughout the world, first as a practical vehicle and later as a quick motorcycle.
Of the many Stornello variations, the Regolarità became the most famous as it dominated the national and international off-road competitions. An off-road version was derived from this model in 1967, called the Stornello Scrambler. The Stornello remained in production until 1975.
V7 II Stornello Limited Edition features:
90° Transverse V Twin 750cc engine, 2 in 1 Arrow exhaust, aluminium mudguards, satin finished aluminium side number plates, polished alloy wheels and dedicated Stornello graphics. The production number of each motorcycle will be laser inscribed on to the upper part of the headstock. The V7 II come with standard with ABS, Traction Control and a Six Speed transmission.
