I did a V7 Cafe for a while and it was a cool bike. I really like the way the Stone looks, and the new motor would be cool, as mine wasn't SLOW, but it certainly wasn't fast.
As far as fit, I'd sit on one. If I were to buy a V7, it'd be the stone or the classic for comfort. If I were a big guy, looking to be riding 2-up, or commuting a couple hours a day, I'd be looking at an 8-valve Griso SE.
