I know they had plans before to bring them stateside, but since the latest reshuffle I'm sure that's been pushed back (if not dropped completely). It's a shame as the 1200s are brilliant bikes. Because they are such a small company they don't make most of the components other than the engine which means the bikes read like a laundry list of the best Italian parts manufacturers. When I get back stateside I could probably sell her on for a nice profit but this one will end up being an inheritance, not an investment.
Thanks for the info. Man, I'd like to have one of those.
