I cannot find an official Aprilia centre stand through my dealer but Panda had a part number and is trying to obtain one through the nightmare that is the Aprilia Parts system.

Hepco and Becker make a centre stand and a few other bits for the Strada (I bought the black engine bars). Their stuff is available in Germany and the UK distributor is a company called Motobins, who seem to specialise mainly in BMW parts. They were brilliant with the Aprilia engine bars and I got them within a couple of days. I presume it would be the same with the centre stand.

I'm waiting to hear how Panda gets on with the official Aprilia route but if that doesn't work I'll be phoning Motobins.

Hope this helps your mate.

If you order from motobins before December they will give 10% discount on preVAT price.
Peter Locke is a good bloke in their sales dept.
I'll let you know what their delivery service is like.

why do you need a centre stand? it's harder to put the bike on the centre stand?! is it so you don't have to bother with a rear stand for storage?

I ordered my centre stand 22/11 and it arrived today 28/11. Good going I would say as its come from Germany.
I was charged 104.81 including postage.
The only thing to note is the side stand has to be in the down position before using the centre stand (or remove it as in Gags photo). Its OK when you get used to it but it threw me at first.

Apologies for my last message, the side stand in Gag's photo of the main stand is still fitted (my eyes are going)

We've got a centre stand in stock now, its quite a neat fit. You replace the side stand and the bracket that holds the side stand to the frame too, so it tucks away well.

I am a bit confused! As I have place an order for the Hepco&Becker Centre Stand. Question: to install the Centre stand I completely eliminate the use of the side stand. That's bad news. If, had I went for a Aprilia centre stand will I retain the side stand useability or not! Am I missing something!

With the Hepco centre stand you can leave the side stand fitted which is what I have done.
I havent seen the Aprilia version, read Panda's email.
