Your new 850 is waiting for you at your local dealer now!
« on: April 05, 2021, 07:27:51 PM »
I have seen some apparently in private hands in the UK, just wondering when they will be on showroom floors here in the US.

No. I don't think any updated V9 Roamers will ever appear here in the U.S. But...a 100th V9 Bobber is supposed to show. Though the 100th V7 Stone is said to be first up, next month. We'll see...

Motorcycle.com just did a test ride on the 2021 V7. https://www.motorcycle.com/manufacturer/moto-guzzi/2021-moto-guzzi-v7-review-first-ride.html

As far as availability, I've read that Italy remains hard hit by COVID so output, supply and delivery are probably affected. I'm still waiting for several OEM parts from my February V85TT purchase.

They are definitly out there.

My dealer has one and I had a test ride scheduled this coming Saturday...
Alas, a renewed lockdown here makes that impossible for at least 2 more weeks now :(

Cheers,

I contacted Piaggio customer care via e-mail on Friday.   I received a reply from Leonardo who stated dealers are supposed to be receving new v7 850s in the second half of this month, or very beginning of May.

I wonder how he felt about the V7iii? :laugh:

He said 3 years ago to the day, so I **think* he is referring to a 3. I suppose it all comes down to your expectations. It is odd though. By all accounts so far, the new 850 is a sweet bike, but I find the 3 to be pretty darn good as well. From a strictly personal standpoint, I don't feel the need to upgrade from my Milano to a '21 V7.

Oh well. I hope they sell a bucket load of them!

I just noticed that MotoPlex West Chester PA has a 2021 V7 listed on their website as being In-Stock.

I was going to be in town later this week, maybe I'll try to stop by and see if that's true and if I can take a gander.

https://www.motoplexwestchester.com/search/inventory/availability/In%20Stock/usage/New/brand/Moto%20Guzzi

Hmmm though they seem to claim to have a number of them. Wonder if that's "anticipated" stock.

Yeah stopped by Cadre yesterday and asked about the new bikes. They said they were supposed to have  the V7's by now but haven't and still aren't sure when they will see them.

Same here. I compared my Milano to a V85tt yesterday. The 85 is super nice but after my test ride I was happy to be back on Mr. Sparkle.

I was at Cadre yesterday and Enzo said he hadn't received his March allotment yet.  Waiting on my Centenario to show up.   :popcorn:  It's Italian - they will be along.

As we suspected, not in stock yet. Expected in the next few weeks though.

That said they have a lot of inventory and the shop looked busy.

Wouldn't think it would be much longer, as they had half a dozen or more in CA for the press, earlier this month.

I talked to a dealer three weeks ago who said they were getting a V7 Centenario the following week. I left him my number to call me when it came in. He did not call me.

It appears they will be fashionably late.

/\ This.

Although we heard a lot about the Suez Canal recently, I heard some reporting that some of our major ports were backed up. That tidbit of reporting flew largely under the radar.

Ah, the excitement of something new... :wink:

Being up in the farthest corner from Italy possible, things take months longer to show up here. Very frustrating when I see European dealers with stuff 6 months before we see it.

Maybe, i wasn't clear enough, they are now on dealer floors right here in the USA.  Gateway Cycles in KY, for example has all three versions of the v7!

I just got an email from my dealer saying that a Black 2021 V7 Stone arrived this morning!  I had put a "right of first refusal " on the bike, so it's possible that I'll own it today.

UPDATE:  I saw, inspected, and sat on a V7 Centenario this afternoon (Apr 22) (the dealer was wrong when he told me this morning that a it was black Stone).  Very nice.  There's a good chance I'll be able to test ride it as soon as the local weather permits (Saturday).  If that goes well, I'll very likely buy it rather than wait for a black one to arrive.

The only hitch is whether I can still ride and enjoy the experience.  My 2016 V7 Stone was totaled last June and I was also nearly totaled.  I broke my left femur pretty badly, but it was nicely repaired, complete with several titanium bits.  I think I'll be able to ride again but I won't know for sure until I try.

Hey Trialsman.  I was just at Cadre on Tuesday dropping my V 85 off to have the cruise control checked out.  Enzo only had 2 new bikes  left on the floor, a Yellow V 85 (with a nice pipe) and a V7.  Said he was expecting a shipment of 15 bikes any day now.

Great to hear Tommy.  As soon as it comes in I will run over to pick it up.  I will put the two together and set the new one up as I did my first.  I ended up making my rear top case brackets mount 6" forward as I did for you.  Maybe I will see you there again.

I was at Cadre Cycle earlier today (noon on 22Apr), nothing yet and no reliable information as to when.
Plus I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night. So thereís that too.
