In 1960 Moto Guzzi set out to re establish itself in the most profitable Italian market segment by introducing the 125 CC Stornello. Using a brand new four stroke pushrod single, the Stornello made an instant impact in the eighth liter class of Italian bikes. In 1961 Guzzi added inclined valves and a hemispherical combustion chamber (yes, it’s a hemi) that made a significant boost in horsepower and top speed. The Stornello line continued until 1974 and was re introduced in 2015 as a model of the venerable V7.
The Stornello Sport was easy to discern from the regular model by the clip on bars and cafe racer seat. The Sport version used a 125 CC air cooled four stroke overhead valve hemi single that produced 8.5 HP. When coupled with a 4 speed transmission, hydraulic suspension and a very good frame the top speed was in excess of 66 MPH.
