    I like the included seat. Stucchi has a really nice fairing for these models as well.

    Hmmmmmm, only one disc up front. I would like to test it and see how effective that brake actually is.
    I hadn't noticed the new cylinder and head styling before. The head and cylinder melted into each other.
    But the really big question is: Is that a four valve per cylinder head????????????

    It does look quite nice.

    The single disc is way more than adequate, believe me. The smallblocks are quite light and not very powerful or fast, (This is not an insult, simply a fact.) and the single disc helps their agility. Despite their low spec on paper they can be thrown around with verve in the twisties and like a 125 two-stroke its all about keeping up the corner speed.

    A 'Sports' bike they'll never be but a fun bike, especially in a hilly or crowded environment, they definitely can be. They're a lot more reliable now than they used to be and the current range are selling like hot-cakes! While I think the 'Racer' is a horrible 'Tart's Handbag' The 'Cafe', especially in white, is a very pretty little thing.

    The one from Stucchi does not show signals coming through, and as it's just the front and no replacement seat + spoiler, sells for quite a bit less - about 500 euro before tax, etc. In white or lime green.

    I keep looking at these V7....
    Last time I was at the dealership I sat on one again, but told myself I didn't want it because I like to go on long rides and really want fairings. I noticed some commentors on MCN were bashing the idea as equivalent to putting clipons on a Harley. The point isn't to make the bike more track-worthy (note the headlamp is not concealed) - it's to make it more enjoyable on longer, spirited rides. This is very encouraging...

    With the seat/tail and factory fit and finish it doesn't sound like it's too expensive.
