Moto Guzzi has recently launched the V7 Stone ABS on the occasion of India Bike Week 2015 in Vagator at Goa. The launch of the bike is expected to take place in the Indian market sometime soon.

The V7 Stone is a heritage bike, which gets a couple of additional touches to reinforce its modern look while keeping the 1970s appeal intact. It runs on a 744 cc, 90 degree V-twin mill, which belts out a maximum power output of 49 bhp and a torque of 58 Nm. Mated with a five-speed gearbox, the bike is a sure winner in the category.

Moto Guzzi has a product line-up of only four models and has a small presence in the high-challenging Indian market. Moto Guzzi has not yet commented on this aspect, the manufacturer definitely has plans to strengthen its line-up. The launch of the V7 Stone is the first step towards that target. This is the most affordable bike in the line-up of the company and will compete against Harley-Davidson Superlow and Triumph Bonneville.

The launch of this bike is undoubtedly, a great step for the bike-loving Indian population. Recently, there have been a series of foreign manufacturers, who have launched their products in the market. On one hand, this allows the enthusiasts to have a taste of global bikes, while on the other; this also allows global names to enhance the reach of their products. If Moto Guzzi can grab a foothold in the Indian two-wheeler market, it is expected that other such manufacturers will be encouraged to debut their products.
