This classic middleweight Moto Guzzi roadster came back into fashion with some major overhauls last year when they reimagined the motorcycle for their lineup. Moto Guzzi has been around for 100 years now, and the styling of this newer motorcycle draws many callbacks to an era dominated by this heritage company.
For 2022, this stylish Italian V-twin is aimed at providing riders with a friendly mid-displacement motorcycle model that talks the talk and walks the walk. Its simple retro-styling inspires elegant confidence thanks to its two trim levels: the V7 Stone E5, and the V7 Special E5 – but both bikes share mostly the same componentry and 853 cc 90° V-twin being brought to speed thanks to its 64 hp and 53 ft-lbs of torque. There are zero changes to both versions this year since undergoing a major facelift in 2021.
The V7 Stone E5 has a hardier modern look thanks to its blacked-out componentry and five-spoke rims when compared to the V7 Special E5 with its flashy chrome and wire-spoked rims. The Special also has a ribbed seat to double down on its classic nature and instead of a digital gauge cluster as found on the Stone, the Special opts for dual analog dials.

New iconic graphics on the fuel tank speak to the new engine capacity, while a host of smart chromatic details distinguish its shape and colour, with finishes that blend tradition and innovation to perfection, such as the spoked wheels with polished aluminium channels and black hubs, an instrument panel with two analogue circular dials and the bulb-like headlight.
To mark 100 years of Moto Guzzi, the V7 sports a prestigious centenary livery, available only in 2021, and perfectly encapsulating the brand’s heritage, history, elegance and sporting character.
