New Aprilia/Moto Guzzi Dealer
 
Great news for Aprilia/Moto Guzzi owners in Ireland.New official dealership opening in Portadown in mid February.Full range available with test rides and full workshop facilities.Hope all goes well for them.Think they'll have a stand at the Belfast bike show.Aprilia make some great bikes but was always worried about lack of dealers in this country.Far as I know they are looking to set up in the south as well.

The guy that's opening the dealership is Wes McCrum,of McCrums Motorcycles.He was telling me he finally got everything ironed out as he's been talking to Piaggio for almost a year to sort it.They want him to cover the north and border counties while they get someone to take on the franchise in the south.

Took a test ride on a Caponard Rally last year down in Gorey........animal of a yoke with semi-active suspension.

I would consider one if there was dealer back up.

Would you pick one over the GSA, unfortunately they don't make them anymore.

Not sure if I would but I really enjoyed riding it. The looks are a bit "marmite" but what isn't.


I have and would again consider one (if the right deal came along)
