Moto Guzzi closing their doors?

By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Mar. 30, 2004
I recieved this yesterday on one of my lists. I don't know if it is true or not -- it is just a rumor I heard. Have any of you heard this at all?

His written English is a bit problematical, but it looks like MotoGuzzi is bankrupt and has temporarily closed its doors to see if an ownercan be found. Now you have to wonder about Aprilia as well....

And that was it. Anyone know anything else about this? Or is this just a stupid rumor? I had heard friday from someone who works for a bike parts supply company he heard a rumor that Aprilia went bankrupt that day, so there may be some truth to all this in one way or another.
