Corsa Italiana in the UK have added some pics to their Facebook of new Stones being uncrated. Look great.

So how does this work?

Are dealers taking pre-order deposits?

Now let's not forget the US version will need "safer colors".

No clear turn signals, nice amber ones...

Black wheels? They will blend into the pavement too much, how about neon yellow?  ;-T

And that engine should be a nice lime green.

Back in 2000, I saw a pearl white Bassa, didn't know what it was.

Followed the guy until he made a stop and asked numerous questions as I admired his bike.

I knew I had to have one. Took a year for me to research, and even with that I was more than a little nervous buying a "quirky Italian bike with probable QC issues."

Had to have a Guzzi.....everythin g else I looked at just didn't hit me.....bought a new Jackal.

Damn fine bike it turned out to be!

And although I love all bikes, this is the first bike to hit me between the eyes like that white Bassa did!

Must.....have.....o ne....... :drool

This iconic bike may do what the Monster 695/696 did for Ducati and the New Beetle did for VW.

I like the looks of the Stone more than the Racer.  The Stone just looks cleaner with the white tank/ black wheels and side covers.  Man, what a nice looking ride!
Forza Guzzi!

...that is plain BS...
No it isn't- it's another person's opinion. You may find reference to this phenomena in chapter 43, para 634 in your copy of "The Human Experience: Interpersonal Relationships for Dummies" (Paragon,1983) ;)

Nice looking bike.

Interesting the new metal tanks - there's a noticeable "droop" on the front lower section of the tank - not sure I like that as much as the straighter lines of the old tanks, but I'm sure the extra capacity is very welcome.

polished rim edges on black wheels are a Japanese styling nightmare
But on red ones, are an Italian one!

The white Griso 8v certainly looks at home in the sea of beauty of these new white V7's.

All the best,

Lovely bike.  That fits my idea of what a do-it-all motorcycle should look like.  Of course that vision was imprinted on my brain back in the sixties, but what the hell.  I expect I'll be adding one of these when they become available here in the U.S.

I guess I'm in the minority, but I like the black Stone better than the white one.

Great looking bike!  I sure like the Euro turn signals better than the black USA versions.

The bikes are stunning.

But I too must say that I admire the salesmanship of the shop.  From what I can tell, they decided to uncrate them right there on the street in front.  That's one way to draw some attention.  I'm surprised there hasn't been a 4 car pile up from the gawkers.  Won't see many other manufacturers where they can just drop the crate walls and instantly get oooohs and aaaahhhs.

Corsa are IMHO THE Guzzi Dealers in the UK - they really know thier stuff inside and out and are enthusiasts (maybe fanatics) for the Guzzi marque.

They all look good, but I want an orange one.

Silly Man - ORANGE is for HARLEYS!

(I love orange, it's actually my favorite color for color's sake, but Orange and Black are Harley colors).

Doesn't change the fact that Guzzi isn't "orange" and Harley has been orange and black as long as I've been alive...
