my local supplier has a 1200 GRiSO on offer with around £1500 off the list price.
always wanted one. Are they about to be discontinued?

Yes. While there are still a few bikes being put together in Mandello the CARC line is effectively dead. Buy now or miss out.

Definitely the time to get a new one and also get the guarantee and confidence it actually has rollers from the off - You can get brand new 2015/2016 on the road for less than GBP9k at the moment. Compare that to relatively expensive and dodgy provenance low mileage 'weekend only' stuff from 2008-2012 flat tappet and interim period eg currently green tenni/silver ones 2011 vintage for GBP5K-GBP7K; 5000-10000 miles short trip cold morning but haven't done enough to completely destroy the flats yet , and probably will need at least gbp1.5k on rollerising them (forex not helping).

Even makes me think to buy another one :-). Almost everyone I talk to who opens with "what a beautiful bike, how much do they cost ?" is amazed when I say brand new is less than £10k - art on wheels going cheap.

I've just been through the exact process described by Paul above. Was thinking of buying a second hand low mileage 2012 advertised alt £7k, the same dealer then proceeded to offer me a brand new one for £9.5k but gave me £1.5k more for my p/ex than anyone else and threw in a Termi can. How could I resist, the black and silver beast is sitting out in my garage as we speak.

after wanting one since about 08, I've just put money down on a 2016 GRiSO from Motociclo in St Peters. Still pinching myself. Will post photos when I pick her up.

Awesome!
I've been impressed with Motociclo every time I've bought Guzzi bits from them (online) , very friendly and knowledgeable.

Had my 10k km GRiSO service at Motociclo and I was very happy. Wouldn't take it back to Northside at Artarmon.

Up ya go. I got my 2nd 1200 ,2015 from there,no complaints but Pete does a better pre delivery. IMHO I reckon the 2015 model is the ultimate GRiSO. That oughta start a riot...

Yes - this bike has been top of my mental shortlist since about '07 I think. Getting one of the last ones now closes the circle. I don't know how many are left in Sydney but I think this might be one of the few remaining.

In Austria no new GRiSO is available since mid 2016.
I bought my red trophy in late October 2016 at a dealer in Germany.
But also in Germany the last ones will be sold as end-of-series-provision or with a one-day approval from the dealer. That's the only way in EU as Euro 4 applies for new bikes per Jan.1st,2016 and for existing series per Jan. 1st 2017.
One of the emotional bikes has reached it's end in Europe!

I am happy over all, that I got my GRiSO late 2016. Unfortunately, I was only able to ride 120km, before winter came. I just read in the newspaper, that January 2017 is the coldest winter since 40 years in Austria.

Something is not working well with the climate warming.
