GREAT!!! 20% is a lot of monney and now with Piaggio's power, MV Agusta motor is going to have better prices for buying the parts. And because MV has bike engeenering experience, we are going to see very exiting Gileras and not only the one Japanese powered. Note that it doesn't hurt me to have Japanese motor in an Italian MODERN bike instead an 8 years old Mostro they sell at gold prices. Try one time the Raptor (I rode one for two month)and you understand what I mean talking about modern bikes ;) Hope now Castiglione,Tamburini, Galuzzi, Goggi and all the Cagiva's staff are going to have monney back for their passion and hard work of all these years...
