Wooppss, just saw the story in an old MCN (Wednesday's), looks like it will drap down Laverda and Guzzi...bugger it means that poor old Benelli will be the only alternative to the MV...the 999 being just too ugly to consider! ;-)

PS When the fairing arrived the secretary opened the box and though I'd bought a Stormtrooper outfit...strange woman...

Yup,
Here's the article:
Aprilia Stops Making Bikes

Here's another juicy bit I garnered from a relatively reliable source, seems that either Ducati or Aprilia may be buying one or the other out. I know some news like this was circulating a year ago, but this is fairly recent. Stranger things have happenned in the motorcycle industry. :eek:

IIRC Texas Pacific Group bought Ducati almost a decade ago, its a VC group. They would be an ideal partner for Aprilia (et al) but it would mean that their exposure to the luxury sector would be very high. Lets see what happnes, Laverda owners have been up in arms about parts supply for over a year now.
