moto guzzi v7

The 2022 Moto Guzzi V7 Stone has launched in Malaysia courtesy of Didi Group as the official distributor of the Moto Guzzi brand in the country.

  • 2022 Moto Guzzi now features a high performance 850cc engine that produces higher horsepower and torque.

  • 80% of the torque already available at 3,000rpm.

  • the new V7 is faster and more powerful than ever.

Priced at RM62,900, the V7 Stone features a new high-performance 850cc engine capable of pumping 65hp @ 6,800rpm and 73Nm @ 5,000rpm, a significant increase from the previous 52hp and 60Nm.

The new engine also delivers more than 80% of the torque as early as 3,000rpm.

Other major changes include a more mature aesthetic thanks to the larger engine built, larger cardan final drive and wider rear wheel, plus a robust pair of Kayaba shock absorbers.

The Moto Guzzi V7 Stone also features stylish side panels, a shorter rear mudguard and a new exhaust system.

The Mandello-based company also claimed that the seat had been revised for better comfort with the addition of a new rider footpeg support.

Other changes include:

  • new full LED light setup
  • new instrument cluster
  • aluminium wheel with a wider 150/70 rear tyre

Moto Guzzi has been busy updating its current lineup with a new range of motorcycles.

Not only revamping its Mandello Del Lario factory, the Italian brand recently celebrated its 100th years anniversary by unveiling the V100 Mandello sport-tourer.

The V100 Mandello is the company most technologically-advanced motorcycle to date.

However, it seems Moto Guzzi does not plan to stop there, instead the Italian firm has just teased an upcoming V850 X set to roll out in 2022.

Looking at the company new direction with the V 85TT and the V100 Mandello, the new motorcycle could also carry a more modern design.

Looking back in October, a test mule was found roaming the street of Italy in a special test livery dubbed to be the next generation V7.

While the company did well to hide some finer details, the photos clearly show the V7 has received a modern touch.

However, the upcoming V850 X could combine the ruggedness of the V7 with the V85 TT off-roading capabilities.

According to reports, Moto Guzzi set up an incomplete website dedicated to the all-new V850 X with a text describing the new model as a “production special”, “technical heir” to the V7.

It also says the V850 X is a “synthesis of different worlds such as the flat track and that of the scrambler.”

The web page has since been taken down since the report went viral.

Nonetheless, Moto Guzzi is confirmed to roll out a couple of new models for 2022, we just not sure what’s the date. Either way, 2022 is set to be an exciting year.

Moto Guzzi is set to unveil the next-generation V7, as confirmed by the latest spy shot.

As the Italian firm celebrates its 100 years anniversary, the V7 has been the most popular Moto Guzzi range since its introduction in 2021.

While the V7 has now expanded to nine models in total, it has always offered the same retro-classic element.

However, things might change with the new V7 successor spied testing on the street in Italy.

The latest spy shot did not give away too much detail; however, we can clearly see a more modern silhouette compared to the previous generation of the V7.

While it may just be a tactic by the Italian firm to hide the real detail, we can confirm the front headlight appears smaller and compact in design.

Nonetheless, with EICMA just around the corner, the new V7 could make a surprise appearance alongside the already confirmed V100 Mandello.


Moto Guzzi V7 has emerged as the best selling (over 700cc motorcycle) in Italy for the month of August.

With over 213 units delivered to customers, the V7 outperform its Japanese, German and other Italian competitors.

The achievement is deserving for Moto Guzzi, as the Mandello-brand celebrates its hundred years of history.

The V7 is currently available in two variants, Stone and Special, with both equipped with a new 850cc that delivers 65hp @ 6,800rpm and 73Nm @ 5,000rpm.

The new generation of V7 was presented earlier this year with a completely revised engine and featured more comfortable riding ergonomics and a powerful motor without losing the Guzzi DNA.

  • The Moto Guzzi V7 III Carbon has just been launched in Malaysia.
  • The Carbon variant features carbon-fibre components, red highlights and a unique alcantara leather seat.
  • Only 1921 units will be produced worldwide and you can book yours now.

Moto Guzzi Malaysia today introduced the limited edition Moto Guzzi V7 III Carbon. An aesthetically racier, more performance oriented variant of the popular V7 III.

The Carbon variant, which was introduced at the Moto Guzzi showroom at The Gasket Alley in Petaling Jaya, is distinguished by its carbon fibre components such as the shortened fenders and side fairings, as well as the Matt black colour with red contrasting highlights on the engine cover, logo and front brake caliper.

The seat (above) is also unique to the Carbon model and is made of water repellent Alcantara, leather. It too features red highlight stitching as shown below. In fact, the carbon features many such unique features, such as the tank cap made of anodized black billet aluminum, headlight frame, injector covers and the rear brake master cylinder.

The Moto Guzzi V7 III Carbon is made in limited number, 1921 to be exact, a number that recalls the year Moto Guzzi was established.

The series number of the model is identified by the plate on the handlebar riders as shown above. Also shown above is the dedicated single circular display, which is typical of variants such as the V7 III Stone, Rough and the Carbon. The V7 III Special, Racer and Milano variants on the other hand, have a second circular display for the rev counter.

At the heart of this Carbon model is a transversal V-twin engine, which is now in its third iteration since the original engine was first introduced back in 1967. The 744cc engine features twin valves with light allow pushrods and rockers as well as aluminium heads, pistons and cylinders that help to generate 52hp at 6200rpm and 60Nm of torque at 4900rpm.

Power is transferred via a six-speed transmission which was first introduced in the V7 II model, but with an updated, longer first and final gear ratio that are able to fully exploit the torque and power of the engine.

On the safety front, the V7 III Carbon comes equipped with a four-pot Brembo caliper up front gripping a 320mm disc brake, ABS braking as well as an adjustable traction control system called the Moto Guzzi Traction Control system, which can be adjusted to two sensitivity levels or turned off entirely. The rear brake consists of a 260mm disc with a twin-pot caliper and a master cylinder with built-in resorvoir.

As for the handling of the bike, the sitting position is commanding which is typical of modern-retro machines. The steel frame and the completely reworked front end of the third generation variant of the V7 is said to give the bike a steady feel at high speed and in corners.

As for the the shocks, the front features basic non-adjustable forks with 5.1-inch of travel which the rear is kept in check by a set up Kayaba shocks with 3.8-inch of travel at the rear, adjustable for pre-load and travel.

The limited-edition Moto Guzzi V7 III Carbon is priced at RM74,900 and is now available for viewing at the Moto Guzzi showroom at The Gasket Alley in Petaling Jaya.

  • The Moto Guzzi V7 III Carbon Shine features aesthetic updates to the popular V7 recipe. 
  • The bike features no performance updates but some carbon fibre is sprinkled on for good measure.
  • Only 500 are to be produced worldwide, with some perhaps making it to the Malaysian market. 

As far as retro styling goes, Moto Guzzi is the one brand that has remained true to form for many years now. The V7 has largely remained unchanged from the beginning except for some sprinkling of modern features here and there.

The V7 has spawned many special editions including the gorgeous Anniversario model. That model has completely sold out and Moto Guzzi went back to the drawing board to come up with yet another stunning model aptly called the V7 III Carbon Shine.

It may not have a lot of updates to its styling or to its performance as it is powered by the same 90-degree transverse V-Twin with the same shaft drive. In fact the updates are aesthetics only, with only black and chrome highlights.

The tank os chromed out with a black leather top strap which we first saw with the Anniversario which had a brown leather strap. There’s also some carbon fibre on the front mudguard and side panels, billet machined aluminium bits and a classy, hand-stitched saddle.

Only 500 of this beautiful authentic motorcycle are being made, and possibly a few might make it to the Malaysian market, considering the resurgence of the Guzzi brand in Malaysia.

Speaking of which, The Clan, which is the name given to the Moto Guzzi owner’s club, has been very active in Malaysia of late.

  • Production of the model is limited to only 1000 units worldwide.

Moto Guzzi Malaysia has acquired Unit 0001 of the V7 III Anniversario. It’s of great significance as production of the model is limited to only 1000 units worldwide.

The V7 III Anniversario commemorates the 50th year of the legendary Moto Guzzi V7, and is distinguished from the unlimited run V7 III by numerous exclusive details such as the gold-coloured Moto Guzzi eagle emblem on the chrome fuel tank, brand new genuine leather seat, and billet aluminium locking fuel tank cap.

The mudguards are polished aluminium, the passenger grab bar is chrome plated steel, while the wheels get exclusive polished channels and grey hubs.

Perhaps most importantly, the handlebar riser is laser inscribed with the production number XXXX/1000.

While based on the V7 III Special, the Anniversario’s engine has been tuned for a 10% power gain. The steel frame with dismountable double cradle maintains the same 46/54% front/rear weight distribution, however the front portion has been revamped and reinforced with a new steering geometry for better handling, cornering and stability.

These features produce makes the Moto Guzzi V7 III Annivesario a handcrafted work of art worthwhile for collectors.

“I am proud that we managed to acquire the 0001 unit of the III Anniversario and this would also be a pride for Moto Guzzi enthusiasts in Malaysia,” said Rewi Bugo, Chairman of Didi Resources Sdn. Bhd. Didi Resources is the official importer and distributor of Moto Guzzi motorcycles in Malaysia.

Moto Guzzi, the fabled Italian motorcycle brand has previously enjoyed some success in Malaysia. Beautiful retro modern machines and Italian flair appealed to a large audience, but things were not meant to be.

Constant change of management and politicking has left owners of the motorcycles in a limbo with no official workshop and after sales service to support the bikes. It has been about two years now since the brand enjoyed official presence in Malaysia, but there is word on the street that things are about to change. Very soon.

According to our sources, Moto Guzzi is set to make a comeback into the Malaysian market, and this time the brand will be supported by a company that are hailed as ‘specialists in the retail business’.

Apparently only two models will be offered in Malaysia for now – the retro looking V7 and the V9, but that will eventually change to offer a more thorough line-up. Our source says that the focus of the company will be to reach out to current owners of Moto Guzzi motorcycles and to provide them with an official workshop, trained mechanics and the whole works.

We also know that the brand will have an official presence in a swanky dedicated showroom located right in the heart of Petaling Jaya with the workshop located just next to it.

The people behind the return of the brand are fully committed to the brand and have no other main-stream motorcycle brand in the current portfolio, which means the company will dedicate 100% of its efforts into rebuilding the brand locally.

The Moto Guzzi V7 II offers four different variants – the V7 II Stone (above left), the V7 II Special (above second from left), the V7 II Racer (above left), and the V7 II Stornello (above second from right), but it is unclear which of these will make it here. All four variants are powered by a 744cc engine with power figures ranging from 46.9hp to 48hp, with a few different technical differences.

Then there is also the Moto Guzzi V7 III which also offers four variants – the V7 III Stone (second from left), the V7 III Special (right), the V7 III Racer (second from right), and the V7 III Anniversario (left). All variants are also powered by the same 744cc engine but produce more power – 52hp and 60Nm of torque. It is unclear which of these variants will be offered for the Malaysian market.

The Moto Guzzi V9 on the other hand offers two variants – the bobber (right) and the roamer (left). Both variants are powered by a 850cc twin-cylinder engine that produces 55hp and 64Nm of torque. Power is transferred via a shaft drive, and with a weight of just 199kg, the V9 is one of the lightest in its class.

There is no news on pricing or anything of that sort, but the brand is expected to make an official announcement sometime in July.
