I feel the same. It seemed that he was allways looking to make the bike with that something extra. Was looking to stand up to the big guys and say look what my small company did, that you wouldn't do (at least in motorcycles), and before you all start flaming I'm not saying that they where the bleeding edge of motorcycles, but they allways struck me as unique bikes. even compared to the competition.

Maybe his dream exceeded his reach, but I hope Piaggio keeps that spirit alive in the new Aprilia. They definatly have some fun bikes out there.

Looks like you missed your chance for a home grown single cylinder version:

Default Re: Hopefully they will go racing

I've ridden an 02 Mille R i think it's called on street and took one out for a lark at prerace practice. i just couldn't ride it very well. there are usually a host of reasons for this, starting with me. i would love to ride the tuono with the ohlin suspenders. i wish i knew somebody up here who had one. even tho we have an aprilia dealer in n. idaho, you don't see many. I agree eventually i hope to ride one i like, i wouldn't mind owning one.

Default ADD wire/service/report

In a surprising move, Sears Corporation and new partner Kmart unveiled plans today, that they are seeking to acquire the Moto Guzzi Motorcycle company. If acquired Moto Guzzis will be solded in the United States and throughout North America under the Kenmore Brand Name. Early reports indicate that the Moto Guzzi/Kenmore motorcycles will be sold through the new Sears/Kmart SuperStore network. When an official at Moto Guzzi was finally reached for comment, and anonymous spokesman statedÂ…



"Aye! She ainÂ’ta mushÂ’a fa motocycyleria but I bettÂ’a sheÂ’s gone-be una hellaffa washmachine."



When asked for further comment, none was forthcoming. However, after several seconds, an apparent gunshot was heard, and the phone-line immediately went silent.



ADD has no further information at this time.
