Seems like Scramblers are trending this year at EICMA as Moto Guzzi has unveiled a Scrambler, called the V7 II Stornello. Moto Guzzi has revived the famous name from the past as the original Stornello was produced from 1960 - 1974.
The Moto Guzzi V7 II Stornello uses a 744cc V-Twin that produces 47bhp, instead of a single-cylinder that originally powered the Stornello. Also, to make the motorcycle a capable off-roader, the exhausts curl around the engine cylinder to give the motorcycle some ground clearance.
Other notable features of the Moto Guzzi V7 II Stornello is extensive use of aluminium, to make the motorcycle light, 130mm front fork travel and 110mm rear shock travel, spoke wheels with knobby tyres, side number plate, ribbed seat, and a single headlight.
Don't let the classic retro look fool you; the Stornello comes standard with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), switchable traction control, Brembo brakes, Arrow exhaust, and the whole package weighs 186kgs.
So how much does the Moto Guzzi V7 II Stornello cost? Well, stay tuned!
