– 2005 Moto Guzzi Stone
California Stone — Trim clean lines, classic minimalist design, the temperament of a genuine Moto Guzzi. An updated version of the unmistakable 90º V-Twin with hydraulic self-adjusting valves. Brembo Gold Series brakes. A modern expression of the Moto Guzzi spirit. Available in Red, Black or Silver
Elegant like all simple things, Stone is the fresh appealing face of Moto Guzzi for the new generation. It’s evident in the fashionable colours – the sporty “Rosso Race”, the simple “Nero Shadow” and the refined “Grigio Platino”.
But while the colours are trendy, the spirit is unchanged, a passion for travel in the pure state, without superfluous glitter. A bike where substance is what counts, such as the new powerful and environmentally-friendly engine with catalytic converter and silent efficient hydraulic tappets.
The strong personality of Stone is also expressed by the minimalist design with its meticulously clean and functional lines. The large round headlight, brilliant chrome on the ultra-long exhausts emphasising the profile, classical set-back handlebars and set forward footpegs recount a story with distant origins, but now living a new and even more dynamic dimension in city spaces.
And when it’s time to get away, on your own or in company, the tireless Stone offers you incomparable riding sensations, with the chassis of a pedigree traveller.
The frame is made from ultra-strong high tensile steel, the suspension guarantees perfect trajectories on curves and stability on straights and comfort for both rider and passenger is guaranteed. Also noteworthy is the comfort of the gear change with its reduced travel and coupling loads and the practicality of the electric controls on the handlebar.
Concrete and functional, Stone provides the rider with information from essential but complete instrumentation, with everything you need for peace of mind when travelling.
