    I really like the edge “polish” of the fins of the head/barrels on the Milano.
    Harley had a model / option with the same thing.

    I wonder of it could be done to an existing 2017 Stone ?

    I was “worried” about the bond at the edge of the Black material being compromised and starting to lift after
    ( not on the original , but when done after ? )

    Does anyone know what that black/dark finish is ? Powder coat ??

    Yes. Guzzi has them coated and then machined. Nothing special to the process, whether done like that or done in process of the coating (easiest). Once done and installed, the barrels would need to be removed and machined.

    I don’t think I would do it, but that would mean technically you might be able to file the edges yourself...
