The base V7 model is the Stone, new for 2013, and at the bottom of the pecking order at $8390. As on the other V7s in the line (the Racer and the Special), Guzzi stacks the Stone with a number of period styling cues, like a large round headlight, fork gaiters, 70s-style fuel tank, and sleek, semi-stamped side panels hiding convenient storage areas-just like on the 1977 original. That's about it for bodywork; everything's out in the open, from the tank jammed cleanly onto the open tubular frame, to the flat bench-style saddle stretching rearward. The engine and transmission, and even the split-spoke cast-alloy wheels are finished in black, with flat black covers capping the signature protruding cylinders. If you're thinking "Italian Dark Custom" you wouldn't be too far off. About that new metal tank-it holds a whopping 5.8 gallons, so you're guaranteed a remarkably rangy ride before you think about the next fuel stop.
