The Moto Guzzi V7 II Stornello Limited Edition scrambler will be available in Australia in May, but only 10 of the bikes will be imported. Moto Guzzi revealed the bike at the EICMA show last November, and announced then that only 1,000 would be produced in total. With such a small number coming into the country, Moto Guzzi Australia is recommending that anyone interested in purchasing one of the bikes contact a dealer quickly. The Stornello name has a long history in the Moto Guzzi model range. The original Stornello was created in 1960 as a light and easy to ride entry level motorcycle, and the model stayed in production until 1975. The V7 II Stornello Limited Edition is styled on the 1972 Stornello Scrambler 125. The new bike has the same colour scheme – a white tank with red stripes, red frame and black engine. The engine is a 750cc 90-degree transverse V-twin with a claimed power output of 36kW, and is coupled to a six speed transmission. The kerb weight is a relatively light 186kg. The bike has a two-into-one Arrow exhaust system, aluminium mudguards and satin finished aluminium side number plates. In keeping with its heritage the wheels are polished alloy rims with wire spokes. The seat is long and flat, and there are rubber knee pads, off-road footpegs and fork boots to complete the scrambler look. The V7 II Stornello also comes standard with dual channel ABS and traction control. Each bike will have its production number laser inscribed on to the upper part of the headstock. The Moto Guzzi V7 II Stornello Limited Edition will be priced at $16,500 plus on road costs. The bike offers the personality, class leading safety and quality which are hallmarks of the brand, and Australian stock is expected to sell out quickly.
