I'd like to see that blue one.  Wonder if the LED lighting would free up enough juice to run heated gear?

I was thinking to use the headlight for a Griso (might fit and it is street legal) but the price ....  :sad:

Reviving an old topic here because I was thinking of buying a V7 III Night Pack. Any owners comments?

My only concern is the LED headlight, even though they claim to last 50,000 hours if they do go sooner the cost of the entire headlight is $$$ I also assume you would need to replace the entire headlight unit with any LED headlight ? And unlike bulbs they are not generically replaceable ?

50,000 hours at an average of 20 mph would be one million miles.  I don't think I would let the replacement cost factor into my decision to purchase the bike.

I have a blue one.  My one gripe, is finding a windscreen for it.  :rolleyes:

All the windscreens for the V7III won't fit with the night pack?

I have a LED bulb in my Mk-3 but wouldn't mind replacing it with the Nightpack lamp. Will keep an eye on eBay...

I should have been more clear.  If it attaches to the headlight like the Dart's do, they don't work.

I'll second Githianki,  finding a windscreen is a pain because the headlight is lower than the regular V7iii.  The only one's I've seen that will fit is a taller OEM windscreen or the Givi, which makes a specific mounting kit for the night pack.

That aside, I love mine.  The shorter fenders and LED lights give it an overall better appearance than the regular stone, in my opinion.

Thanks all, Iím leaning towards the Night Pack,  good to know about the windshield which is one thing I wanted to add.
How about a tail rack, any limitations there?

Bear in mind that if a tach is something you desire, you might consider buying a model already equipped. Cadre' told me yesterday that a tach equipped bike uses a different wiring harness. If it matters, the Night Pack does not come with a tach.

They have a 10th Anniversary Racer there. It has all the LED lighting, tach, (as you would expect), a small fairing, and is stunning in person!
