If you are having this much trouble getting the bike here, I would imagine you would need a signed note from the Pope to get parts.

I heard that it will not be available in the US until at least Spring 2008...if at all. It is a much different bike that the Buell and the Duc. Guzzi has a adventure sport bike on the way as well...spring 2008 at the earliest.



Responding to the previous post: Guzzis don't break much and are as reliable as anything else on the road...quirky YES, unreliable, NO



I am intrested in a Norge, myself, as an alter-ego to my sport bike, but the price is too high. I am waiting for the end of the season deal.

Buy the Duc asap , you won't be sorry . No need to pay extra for the "S" model , the standard is great except for the slightly tacky 3/4" chrome bar . I'd switch to a magura bar for a better-looking ****pit but otherwise the standard is great .

Have you inquired about the cost of a full tune up yet? My dealer wants $800!

They may be reliable, but IF by some chance you need a part (crash, tuneup, breakdown) I have a feeling you are going to wait a while.

IIRC, Ducati has put some sort of guaranteed cap on scheduled maintenance costs (around $400, I think.)
