That's probably the one coming to the US in 2015. I think that was the 2014 model in other markets, but the 2014s here in the US were just like the 2013s.

The newer V7s with the single throttle body don't have the cold start lever. If yours is like mine it will need to warm up a couple of minutes.

I think you will like your new bike!

I like how you have your V7 set up with the fly screen, racks, and seat. Nice looking bike. It'll be interesting to see how the K60's work out.
