For those interested, I was poking around to see what accessories are available for the MK4. (V7 850) Although Moto Machines, the US importer, does not have a listing for Hepco Becker the H-B site does. With regard to the H-B brackets that allow the use of the Junior bags, they list a part number of 653556 00 01. That is a different number than the V7III part number. They also list the other pieces such as a rear rack, engine guards, center stand. I did not compare any of those numbers against older V7 models. No doubt as Moto Machines updates their site, MK4 accessories will show up soon.I figure there might be people wanting to be able to set up a new V7 MK4 as a dedicated tourer and a set of 40L Juniors, (or 30's), would go a long way toward that goal, not to mention setting a trunk on the back. Knowing the stuff is out there might help someone on the fence about getting a new V7 because of this.John Henry
Thanks. I'm surprised that they didn't change the ratios. ZZ
I suppose I might have expected a change to top end gearing to drop a few revs since there is a power increase with the new motor.John Henry
I love the blue.I sometimes miss polishing a motorcycle, but the matte finish on my Aluminum, has grown on me and rarely looks dirty.I chose the anniversary V7, as I wanted cast wheels and an Anniversary Model.It's my Cappuccino Crawler, and I love it.
Really? I can't even put my V7III into 6th gear until I am doing 70 mph and above. These aren't really interstate bikes and I am only on the interstate for an exit or two to avoid other roads.
I agree generally speaking, with a few exceptions. First, as with many of my past Guzzi's, the speedo is optimistic. 80 indicated is really closer to 70. (a little above actually) Second, as for interstate riding, leaving the Ohio Rally I was tired and it was raining. Under those circumstances, my interest in getting home quickly out weighed taking twisty roads, with the latter adding about two hours to the trip in good weather.In reality, it had no trouble doing what I asked of it. It took years to get from 45 or so to 52 and they made changes to the ratios. You might think a 13 hp increase might do the same. They changed the ratios from the II to the III.

Those Mistrals really suit the bike Dave.
The posts and reviews Iím reading are killing me! Iíd sure love to get one of these, but I havenít had a shifty of any kind in the garage in a couple of years. Scooters only, a BV350 and a Vespa GTS. Whenever I have a third bike one seems to get neglected. Iím just over 30,000 miles on the BV and feel like it has a lot of life left in it. But Guzzis are like a virus that never quite goes away
I like your term "virus" that never goes away. Describes it perfectly.
