I know, I know. We all got worked up last time only to get our hearts ripped out and stomped on, but don't worry. This news comes from somebody who's definitely not just an intern, and it happened like this. I was asking about a possible V7 aftermarket parts project and that "somebody" responded with: "No progress on the V7 project. With a potential launch of the V7 Racer from Milan we may let that find its own space here first." Needless to say, we think the "potential" launch will be at this year's EICMA. Also, our guess is that if you offer your nearest dealer a deposit, then Piaggio and Moto Guzzi will have no choice but to give you what you want.
