JOhn Sample Group have just sold the distributorship in Oz to Peter Stephens.

Probably not a good thing.

The official release explains it thus......

“For PS Importers it makes great sense to add Moto Guzzi and Aprilia to our current Piaggio and Vespa scooter distribution in Australia. We have a strong relationship with Piaggio (manufacturer of Piaggio Scooters, Vespa, Moto Guzzi and Aprilia) and this further enhances our product offering of the best European brands. wrote:

Peter Stevens used to be the Guzzi importer decades ago if I remember correctly.
They used to have a program where you could buy your bike in Oz and pick it up at Mandello use to tour Europe and then bring it back to the factory and they would ship it home in there next container load.
They were ok back then hopefully they have someone on board who remembers the brand.

With what little I've heard about their hiring & firing policies, not likely. But you never know. Here's hoping.

Just wondering, a few weeks down the track, whether this is having any real world effect, as in has anything changed or is it likely to?????
