No, the Moto I inventory is between them and the banks and the manufacturer. We might end up with some after all their legal stuff dust settles though.

Very cool for Optimum Performance.

I know there are a few of us on east side of the state that will be happy to have a Guzzi, Aprilia dealer in the state.

I have a friend who was thinking about ordering a RSV4 Factory Works GP but was hesitant because of no dealers in WA.

And I may now fly to Vegas and pick up a new 2017 Guzzi NTX Stelvio, which they have on sale for $11,000.

That will be interesting.

Im betting that won't last long.
I don't think the owners know what they'll be getting into, dealing with aprilia USA or their other "customer service" at aprilia.

Hopefully they will be smart and communicate with AF-1 when ordering parts etc.
Communicating with Aprilia is not an easy task

they are in Kirkland

Do you have an issue with Aprilia or OPM?

No, just giving an educated opinion.

Well, I've been following this thread since the beginning, and I gotta say I'm sad to hear MI went under. I am having issues with my 07 Tuono and I don't trust the crew at the PDX shop for various reasons. So I went ahead and contacted the peeps up in Seattle and was told that they were too busy at the time (month ago), to take in another ride. So I was gonna wait.
I've had the bike for 3 and half years, paid $6500 for it with 19K on the clock, and have spent thousands only to have the tranny(?) go out on me. I've contacted another shop in SE PDX, but haven't taken her in yet. So to hear that there is a viable alternative (even way up in Seattle), is encouraging. At this point, I just wanna make the bike sellable and move on, and it would be nice to at least have a dealership in the area so I can inform the buyer that at least there is a dealership that can service said ride if necessary. It's a selling point. So good luck with the enterprise, perhaps I'll be contacting y'all for advice/service/consignment services. Craiger.

Congrats and best wishes. Aprilia makes some great (if not temperamental) machines. Having another dealer to turn to, in the greater NW area, is a plus.
