Aprilia and Moto Guzzi best buys

Now is a good time to grab a few Aprilia and Moto Guzzi bargains from Australian importer John Sample Group which has released its new retail price list effective from the start of this month. It includes a discontinued model and some old plated stock which are offered at attractive discount prices.

The 2013 Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 ABS, which is being phased out for Australia, is a bargain at the moment with the price down $1700 to $11,990.

Buying a 2013 Moto Guzzi V7 Special will cost just $12,990 which will save you $1300 and beats the $500 price rise for the 2014 model. The 2014 V7s get a new, wet flywheel to replace the dry alternator which slightly modifies the front of the 90-degree V-twin. They also gets some new colours and trim.

Similarly, a 2012 Stelvio V8 NTX ABS has been discounted $1000 to $19,990 before a $2400 price rise for the much-improved new models. The 2014 Stelvio gets a more aerodynamic shape for less buffeting, engine crash bars, larger fuel tank, more rider comfort, and a quieter, smoother and powerful engine. They also feature a new dashboard with more information, a 12V power outlet and traction control as standard.

While most Aprilia motorcycle prices remain the same, some have risen between $700 and $1000, while some Aprilia scooters are up between $140 and $800 and Moto Guzzi prices on some models have increased between $500 and $2400.

JSA boss Kris Matich says they have not had a price rise for Aprilia and Moto Guzzi for more than five years. ” We put through a very small increase in December and now again in March which is based upon increased costs from the factory and the sliding Australian dollar.  When combined these two elements meant that we simply could not hold or absorb these increases any longer and therefore had to put through these price increases,” he says.
