Moto Guzzi V7 III Stone Updates
‘Night Pack’ variant in Nero Ruvido, Bronzo Levigato & Blu Pungente
Moto Guzzi’s V7 is one of the brand’s most celebrated and well-known models, with the third generation currently on offer in the form of the V7 III. Recently the 2019 Stone and Stone Dark Pack variations were updated for the new year model and presented at EICMA.
The V7 III family is made up of seven versions – the Stone, Special and Racer; joined by V7 III Rough, V7 III Milano and V7 III Carbon, which introduce a series of special parts capable of giving each one a very different connotation and a unique character.
V7 III Limited, made in only 500 numbered units, represents the most recent news in a range which, for 2019, offers aesthetic upgrades on the V7 III Stone, available from next spring also in the “Night Pack” variation, characterised by full LED lights and new specific stylistic details.
2019 V7 III Stone
The 2019 Model Year of the eclectic V7 III Stone forsakes any chromium detail to embrace matt black paint, paired with a saddle that has a passenger grab strap. The headlight frame is also not chrome, but black.
The front mudguard is painted to match the fuel tank and the logo on the side panels has been completely renewed, as has the eagle that decorates the tank, now done in a burnished finish.
The total “dark matt” look characterises the new V7 III and distinguishes it from the other versions, but that is not the only difference. V7 III Stone rolls on alloy wheels and has single circular display instrumentation. The front mudguard is further shortened to enhance the essential nature of this model.
In addition to Nero Ruvido, V7 III Stone is available in two new and attractive satin finish colour schemes , Grigio Granitico and Rosso Rovente.
2019 V7 III Stone ‘Night Pack’
In 2019 the V7 III Stone will also be available in the Night Pack variation, characterised by significant styling and functional changes, the first of which is the implementation of new LED lights which ensure high lighting power for the headlight, turn indicators and taillight.
This version, aesthetically defined by the low positioning of the headlight and the instrument cluster, boasts a new rear mudguard, short and sleek, on which the brake light bracket is integrated, as well as the licence plate holder, which is also revamped.
The dedicated saddle is heat welded and enhanced by the embroidered Moto Guzzi logo. V7 III Stone Night Pack will be available in the classic Nero Ruvido livery and in the Bronzo Levigato and Blu Pungente variations. Unfortunately though, on present indications the 2019 Moto Guzzi V7 III Stone Night Pack will not be in Australia until the second half of 2019.
