The engine is the most recent and modern drive built-in Mandello, which guarantees better performance. And overall greater efficiency in providing maximum riding pleasure, fun and reliability.
Design, Frame and Chassis

Many new features come introduced to improve stability and comfort. Leaving the proverbial handling of the Moto Guzzi best-seller unaltered.
Compared to the previous version. The new addition from Mandello is generally more complete in terms of equipment and demonstrates superior maturity.
Also evident is the aesthetic impact of the larger engine. Which stands out for its generously sized exhaust pipes in a different layout.
The view from the rear highlights the larger final drive. And the wider rear wheel, as well as the more robust pair of Kayaba shock absorbers.
The frame has evolved with the addition of steel elements in the headstock area.
Whereas the new pair of shock absorbers are with more significant travel. And the new, two-tier saddle ensure utmost comfort.
With this same goal in mind, brand new rider footpeg support comes used.
The aluminium wheel rims are in the sporty style that equips the Stone, are also new. The rear rim is shod with a wider 150/70 tyre. V7 Special maintains the elegant.
Dual dial analogue instrument cluster (speedometer and rev counter) and the ultra-classic spoked wheel rims.
