Inspired by this rich tradition, a new, exclusive variation of the Moto Guzzi V7 III Stone has now come out of Mandello del Lario, aptly called the S version: made in a limited and numbered edition of 750 globally, V7 III Stone S is the sportiest and trendiest version of the successful model, characterized by an essential style and a strong propensity for customization.
