I have heard through several different sources that Aprilia may be in deep crap financially?

Does anyone know anything?

What can you tell us?

Biaggio is looking for a financial partner, ala Ducati several years ago, to enable them to expand some more, and increase production.

I would safely say that with Italy's financial system, the way it is, that they would be protected for a while, if god forbid, the worse came.

Just look at MV Agusta, They've been in financial strife for years and are still producing bikes!

I think you'll find that at the moment that they're just a little tight! They just need the right injection of some funding.

Don't worry, you'll get your bike! If you don't you can always get your deposits back, by flying to the UK for a holiday!
