The trio of V7s in Moto Guzzi’s lineup starts with the Stone, a gutsy name meant to convey the bike’s simplicity and strength, as in Stone and Rock Solid. No argument Although its analog speedo and each have LCD readouts for the tripmeters, time and temp, the displays are the only bow to the computer age to the rider.

Blacked-out cast wheels and a Matte Black or Pure paint job distinguish the Stone the two-tone V7 Special and café V7 both of which get fancier wheels. Personally, I’d rather tubeless tires like the so I can plug a puncture, even if its Speed Demons aren’t

Larger fins help the 90-degree V-twin, which new induction, larger valves, pistons and higher compression.

Changes to the V7 line for 2013 the air-cooled, fuel-injected, 90-degree V-twin a claimed 12 percent power at lower rpm, an you can feel in the throttle grip and see on the Tuning rear-wheel dyno, the Stone cranked out 43.3 at 6,300 rpm (redline is at 7,200) and lb-ft of torque way down at Interestingly that spread the engine as much fun to rev out as it is to short and it gets up to speed quickly a throaty bark from the mufflers.

The bike is uncommonly smooth for a except at idle where it like a cammy hot rod. is the powertrain’s only real as the shifter throw is long and the dry has a vague feel, making it to miss shifts. Skip the clutch for fast upshifts 2nd gear on up and everything just to work.

Single disc at each end with a strong caliper in front stop the V7 Stone quickly, and the Sachs rear shocks do a fine job of the back, even if they offer ring-and-locknut preload The fork could use some heavier oil, and maybe progressive springs, to provide performance for this rider’s bulk.

Seating is upright and straightforward, a wide tubular bar that lots of leverage, mid-mount and a hard, flattish seat is just 31.6 inches as sold. For $219.95, your will add a gel seat that is 0.9 lower. The Stone’s light helps it handle like but a rock, with good clearance and light steering.

Combined with its lovely style and a 5.8-gallon fuel you’re looking good for 250
