A relatively minor motorcycle show was held this past weekend in Verona, Italy. Minor for most of us but quite important for many of the Italian bike makers that are active today, who didn't miss the opportunity to present their first new products for 2024.
For Moto Guzzi the Verona show was the perfect opportunity to show a new and special version of the V7, a model that enjoyed "incredibly successful sales" last year (no exact numbers on that yet).

The bike, described by its maker as "the most iconic Italian-made roadster," is one of just four motorcycle models Moto Guzzi is offering at the moment. Tracing its roots back to 1971, when it was produced for just a couple of years, it was reborn in 2021 to tackle both the cruiser and café racer segments.

The special version shown this year is called V7 Stone Ten, and it mostly boasts visual enhancements. Just the tiniest of mechanical modifications did however have a major impact on the bike's performance levels.

The two-wheeler is visually different from the rest of the range as it adopts a sport-inspired look. Mostly black, the ride is meant to turn heads thanks to the massive fuel tank with white sides.

Contrasting red has been strategically placed all over. We see it on the rims of the wheels in the letters that spell the bike maker's name, on the rear shock springs, on the seat, and of course on the fuel tank, including in the way the brand's eagle symbols. The paint job, we're told, is unique to the V7 Stone Ten.

The frame of the bike holds the range's 850cc twin-cylinder engine, but it is no longer in its stock form. A specially designed exhaust system with silencers was fitted, boosting the motorcycle's power levels from 65.2 hp to 66.5 hp. Torque output has been increased as well, going from 53.8 lb-ft to 55.3 lb-ft.

The increase might not seem like much, but it is enough to make this version of the V7 appeal to more riders. The exhaust system, called Arrow, is available as an aftermarket addition for the rest of the V7 range.

The new bike will be available for purchase on the North American market starting April this year. Moto Guzzi is asking $9,990 for each of them in the U.S., and $12,290 across the border in Canada. For that money customers will get all of the above, but also a plate installed on the handlebar attesting to the fact that this is a special edition bike.

The Italians did not specify in any way if the V7 Stone Ten is a limited production run, meaning you need not be worried you won't get your hands on one of them.
