A true factory special
One of the winning characteristics of the V7 has always been the perfect balance between maintaining the typically Moto Guzzi stylistic values with the needs of a modern bike. A dialogue that remains intact on the V7 II Stornello as well. Just like the white/red Stornello 125 Scrambler version in 1972, the colour combination on the V7 II Stornello also plays a key role. Then, like today, the contrast created between the pastel white of the tank and the racing red of the frame, both in glossy finish, manages to strongly characterise the design, as well as enhancing the mechanics of the transversal 90° V twin engine strictly in matte black. The intense red of the frame is clearly revisited both on the tank, trimmed with a typical horizontal stripe in the same colour, with the Eagle from Mandello depicted in it, as well as on the new metallic tubular license plate bracket that uses the already refined V7 II light cluster. The laser inscribed number on the aluminium tag located on the upper part of the headstock identifies the unit number, highlighting its exclusivity.

The details of a collector's item
The standard equipment on the new Stornello is the result of a careful selection of parts in the complete catalogue (the most complete of any motorcycle in this segment) of original Moto Guzzi accessories dedicated to the V7; more than 110 valuable pieces, all specifically approved for the V7, designed and developed by Moto Guzzi and capable of transforming it into a unique special. The scrambler tradition is observed perfectly: Moto Guzzi V7 II Stornello stands out from the rest with its complete approved two-in-one Arrow exhaust unit that runs closely along the right hand side, fitted with ample heat shields, as well as with its beautiful long saddle with upholstery that is electrowelded and stitched to increase comfort for the rider and passenger with its special foam and low height off the ground. The spoked wheels on the V7 II Special mount must-have knobby tyres, also fully approved, ideal for riding on any type of road surface, whereas a typical pair of rubber guards can be found on the fuel tank. Many of the parts are made in valuable and lightweight aluminium, such as the injector covers and the side panels, both anodised in black; the steel handlebars are also done in the same “dark matt” finish. The offroad look is completed by the fork dust boots, indispensable for protecting the stanchions from dust along adventurous routes and by the offroad footpegs kit, fitted with aluminium extensions that provide better grip for the rider's soles during use on the road. The kit includes the rear brake terminal, also longer and made in aluminium. The number holders represent a widespread classic element on competition bikes from the ’70s era and already an element on the V7 II Racer with the number “7”, which for Moto Guzzi was dear to the 250 world champion Enrico Lorenzetti. There are three on the V7 II Stornello, made in satin finish aluminium and enhanced by a laser inscribed V7 II Stornello logo. The set of three number holders perfectly matches the fantastic pair of mudguards, also in hand brushed aluminium. These are probably one of the most prestigious and exclusive parts on the V7 II Stornello, true works of hand scribed art.
