2024 Moto Guzzi V7 Stone Corsa Review | First Look

2024 Moto Guzzi V7 Stone Corsa

With its trademark “flying” V-Twin with air-cooled cylinder heads jutting outward from beneath the sculpted fuel tank and its classic styling, the Moto Guzzi V7 has been an iconic Italian motorcycle for nearly six decades.

Paul d’Orléans, founder of The Vintagent and curator of numerous motorcycle exhibits at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, chose a 1975 Moto Guzzi V7 Sport as part of the “Silver Shotgun” exhibit that highlighted Italian motorcycle design in the 1970s.

The latest iteration of this legendary model, the Moto Guzzi V7 Stone Corsa, made a surprise debut during the 2023 Moto Guzzi Open House, captivating thousands of enthusiastic fans who gathered in Mandello del Lario, Italy, for this highly anticipated event, a favorite of Guzzisti worldwide.

The Moto Guzzi V7 Stone Corsa represents a return to the V7’s classic sportiness with modern amenities, marked by its elegant lines that flow from the small fairing to the solo-style saddle (the passenger portion forms the cafe racer “hump”). These design elements evoke the thrilling ambiance of bygone racing eras, which was rekindled in 2019 with the Moto Guzzi Fast Endurance – a single-brand racing series that has allowed many riders to enjoy the thrill of racing on V7 machines.

The V7 Stone Corsa has a vibrant two-tone livery, with a metallic gray color accentuated by a bold red stripe that runs vertically along the top fairing, extending to the lower part of the fuel tank and to the side panels. To complete the racing aesthetic, an optional color-matched cowl is available for the rear portion of the saddle, enhancing the single-seat configuration.

The equipment package further elevates the V7 Stone Corsa’s aesthetics and performance, with bar-end mirrors, a black anodized billet aluminum fuel cap, and a distinctive plate on the handlebar clamp denoting the Corsa’s special status. The fork gaiters found on the standard V7 Stone have been removed to give the V7 Stone Corsa a sleeker appearance.

  1. I have ordered one which arrives Mid November.

    I am some what suprised the bike doesnt sport the arrow pipes ? the V7 stone special sports given this is suppose to be a Corsa Model.
    I have owned another Italian manufacturer Corsa machine which sported quite a lot of Carbon which would have suited the bike.

  2. I put a deposit down on one, should have it by the end of Dec. Ordered a “stage 1” kit from AF1 racing, which includes the reverse megaphone Agostini mufflers with the dB killers removed, airbox lid elimination kit, and an UPMAP tuner. It should’ve come with the dual clocks from the Special, but I think I’ll be okay with the OEM bars and pegs. There’s probably enough aftermarket bits around if someone wants to install clip-ons and rearsets, but I’m more about comfort now than speed (or the looks of speed). So I’m sure the OEM bars and foot controls will work fine for me.

  3. A friend of decdes reminded me of the similarity of this bike to his 1975 R90S which he owned for many years. Is this MG just “bold new graphics?” Not even preload adj on the front? Like the R90S. No rebound/compression on the rear? Like the R90S. 65 hp? Only about 5 or 10 less than the big BMW. Beautiful paint and styling? 2 valve heads? Large capacity tank? Check on all.

    I own a 2013 Griso, a wonderful MG sport bike, but its past its “Sell By” date due in part to changing EPA regs world wide.

    So this pretty bike looks quite good, especially with aftermarket options as to suspension and exhaust. Piaggio knows how to leverage the heritage quite well.
