I've had both. The differences from the IV to the V are not that much to justify the cost. They are both good units, the V is a bit better. That's just my opinion.

Spend the extra money on the MachineArtMoto stuff. Definitely worth the extra money. Personally I can't see shaving a few dollars on a $22,000 motorcycle. Provided there's any money left :-)
