Accessories for the Varadero are actually reasonably priced. I placed a deposit for a Varadero several months ago for one of the first to arrive in Canada, and have been looking on the net for a few months for accessories. It's been somewhat difficult to find particular items at times, but I've found that US importers for manufacturers such as Motech and Hepco & Becker have access to the Varadero stuff and are willing to import it. It's actually comparable in price to equipment that I have ordered for other bikes. I'm waiting until the bike arrives however, as I can see firsthand the variant before I place an order.
