Greetings;

Just looking to buy my first Moto Guzzi in the new year and am wondering if the side panels from a VII can be used on the VIII?

Thanks
Maya

I don't know, but I'd be willing to trace the panels from my V7 III if you can't find an easier answer. Let me know.

Looking at the factory MG accessories manual, their listings for side panels have different part numbers for II versus III models. It may be other reason, but they look like similar size, thinking the mounting screw location would be only issue. Head for closest dealer and see if they will let you check closer.

Take a look at the v7iii special models, - carbon, milano, rough. They have side panels that are more similar to the mkii and look even nicer in fact. Maybe you could order these, although I bet they won't be cheap!
