Bolt vs. Bonneville vs. Moto Guzzi V7

Considering selling my 07 VStar 650 custom for one of these beauties? What a crazy hard desicion to make. Some local dealers still have brand new 2014 Bolt's still in stock. They're cutting prices on them pretty deep, but that Moto Guzzi V7 is pretty intriguing.

Its whatever works for you and makes you happy. Best bet, go to the forums and read up on the V7.
I can tell you one thing, if this matters to you (it would to me) for 2016 the new v7 is going to be called the V7II, So if you go the V7 route you may want to wait. At the same time you can pick up a Bolt cheap, no 6th gear though.

... I personally like the looks of the Bolt in this class of bikes, but have never looked into either and your style of riding matters too.
In the Cruiser class I find the California interesting.but ...

2 entirely different styles of bikes. depends on what kind of riding/style you're more into. i think you need to decide first if you really want a cafe racer or not, because the Bolt is NOT a cafe racer.
