The 2019 Model Year 2019 of this eclectic and essential version forsakes any chromium detail to embrace the darkness of matt black paint, paired with a saddle that has a passenger grab strap. The headlight frame is not chromium, but black, the front mudguard is painted to match the fuel tank, the logo on the side panels has been completely renewed, as has the eagle that decorates the tank, now done in a particular burnished finish. The total “dark matt” look characterizes the V7 III and distinguishes it from the other versions, but that is not the only difference. V7 III Stone also boasts alloy wheels and single circular display instrumentation. The front mudguard is shortened to enhance the essential nature of this model.Compare insurance quotes

MCN overall review verdict: Adding traction control to an air-cooled Moto Guzzi with less than 50bhp initially appears rather pointless. Then consider the natural environment for the V7: the sometimes cobbled city streets of Paris or Milan. Add some wet weather and you have to question why more learner-friendly bikes don’t have it. Guzzi have also added ABS and as such the V7 becomes the first A2 licence-compatible bike to have both as standard. It doesn’t end there: the Italian firm has also moved the engine further forward, which not only changes central mass but increases leg room, as do lowered foot-pegs (by 25mm) and a lowered seat (from 805mm to 790mm). Again there are three models to choose from: the standard Stone, the slightly tickled Special and the Racer. Each bike shares the same platform, the same engine, brakes, rider aids; everything. The new V7 isn’t outstanding at any one thing, but it very versatile, useable and has character and looks, all very unusual for an A2 bike. It’s practical, easy and there’s no reason you couldn’t go touring around Europe on it. You don’t just have to have an A2 licence to want a new V7. In May 2019 the firm announced a new Night Pack for the Stone. Additions to the kit roster include full LED lights, a shorter rear mudguard, and a dedicated saddle with the Moto Guzzi logo embroidered. At the same time, a pair of new colours were released - Onyx Black and Crystal Grey - as a nod to the firm's V750 S3 from 1975.
