Scrambler are quite literally becoming the flavor of the season, with almost every manufacturer trying to jump on the bandwagon. This is of course after most of them saw the success brought in by the Ducati Scrambler in 2015. For 2016, Piaggio-owned Moto Guzzi presents us with their own version of the same, the V7 Stornello Scrambler. The new Moto Guzzi V7 Stornello Scrambler will join the brand new Moto Guzzi V9 range for 2016 and extends the V7 range which already consists of the Stone, Special and Racer.
Upgrades to the 2017 V7 range include a new dual-channel ABS developed by Continental, traction control and a six-speed gearbox. The company say that they have improved the ergonomics too, by re-positioning the 90-degree V-Twin farther front the rider. The seat height is lowered by half-inch to accommodate shorter riders, while the footpegs have been lowered to allow more legroom for taller ones. The 2016 V7 Stornello produces 48 bhp of power and features a massive 5.8 gallon (21.9 litre) fuel tank, which according to the company can run 310 miles (498 km) between fuel stops.
The Stornello will be available for $10,990 as a limited-edition 1,000 unit-run model with each motorcycle coming with a tag on the headstock to denote its unique production number.
