Continental AG: So Much More than Rubber

Round rolling rubber is Continental’s bag, but it’s not the only one – not by a longshot. You no doubt know Continental for its tires – and you should.

Continental takes it more than a few steps further to inform how the rubber interacts with the road. In this day and age, striving to keep folks safe no longer ends at the mechanical traction of a tire. More than ever, companies like Continental are developing highly complex rider/driver aids that range from mild safety intervention to fully autonomous driving.

2022 Moto Guzzi V7 Stone Review

Review Summary:

  • The Moto Guzzi V7 Stone is a rugged, stripped-down standard motorcycle that provides a true ‘old school’ riding experience.
  • Great attention to detail has gone into the design of this bike, from the twin blacked-out exhausts to the Moto Guzzi logo carefully worked into the handsome single LED headlight.
  • There are no rider aides here—in fact, there’s not even a fuel gauge—and the ‘Modes’ button on one of the bars can be misleading, as all this does is cycle through display screens.
