    Just curious if anyone has acquired yet the new, very good looking V7III Stone S? And/or if anyone knows of real life pics or, especially, videos of the bike. It's tempting me a bit, but I can only find factory or dealer pics and would like to see more of it...

    I was actually looking to get one before I bought the Night Pack. I like the color scheme a lot. I also like the Stone Carbon Dark.
    But, these are limited production with almost no discount, so I settled with the NP.

    The S is pretty much a NP with special color scheme, tank strap, billet gas cap, metal injector covers, different side covers, different seat (which I also like), and red color springs on the shocks. (edit: and bar end mirrors)

    In SoCal, there are already very few Moto Guzzi on the street, this makes it even more difficult to see one of these limited production models live.

    My My !
    That would be Illegal in most Provinces, States and Territories - and be quite a Ticket ( a possible $10,000 fine, Immediate Impound of the vehicle "here" ) Except daytime in Montana, last I heard :)

    I though I saw a YouTube Dyno run of a V7 III that got to 180Km.

    My Anniversario has done 175 KM/hour, (108 miles). That is tapped out at max. With me flat on the tank. Getting pretty shaky at that speed. Did it once to see if I could, done with that now.

    A guy on the Facebook in Germany says he took it to 189 kmh on the Autobahn -- over 115 mph..? Not bad at all.

    Optimistic speedo? GPS would be a better way to determine speed.

    I know that 94 comes a lot quicker, and easier, than expected. Closed course, obviously, and I'm light...

    GPS has me 1 - 2 MPH off on my V7III around 70 mph so pretty damn close.

    Pretty accurate for the speedo. Mine is about 10 KM slow according to the GPS. So the speedo says 110 KM/PH, and the GPS says 100 KM/PH.

    I was surprised. I rarely use it. Assumed it would be around 5 mph off. I remember to check again soon.

    Mine isn't that close, more like 5 mph off, if I remember right. I'm thinking I'll just keep adding air to the tires until she's dead on...
