Just a quick look at some MG dealer's websites show 2016 GRiSO's in stock: see e.g. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]  and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Surely that is a mistake?  They look identical to 2015 bikes, so is this just a marketing trick or did MG produce some 2016 GRiSO's?

They might still make it for the non European markets which is fine by me... Thumbs Up
Or..............it's mainly left overs.

Why would they stop making them? They can still sell 'em here and in the US. I think the only peeps that truly know are are keeping lips tightly pursed.

I agree with you Mark, I don't know about your Country but I don't foresee the US imposing ABS on motorcycles any time soon so Piaggio can rely on that market here at least.

So do I.  That color scheme is just perfect!  

I might trade my 1100 in for one.  Then again: I am still in love with my black beauty so perhaps I should just keep it and find a few thou somewhere else.  One can never have enough GRiSO's!!

Harumph.
My 1100 is a slutty bitch with plenty of room for hot rodding.
And she is a durable workhorse too.
A 1200 might be nice but I won't lose sleep or shed tears if I never own or ride one.

My dealer told me that the sixteen model would remain unchanged (including color). It is not that unusual for vehicles to have multi year runs without modifications, but manufacturers often offer some color or trim changes to keep interest.

Thousand Oaks, where my GRiSO currently is undergoing rollerisation, has a 2016 on the floor. It would appear GRiSO lives on! In some markets at least. cheers

There's bread and butter, and there's cream. There's a lot of hooha in Piaggio circles about the "new breed", maybe sanity has prevailed and their bread and butter bikes are still being produced, though away from the "marketers" radar

My understanding is that the GRiSO is available in Europe for 2016 in the same colour scheme etc as last year.

Only newly unveiled models for 2016 have to meet Euro 4 crap, models already in production are exempt until 2017. study

So the GRiSO is safe for another year. cheers
