Default prices

a comparison between prices US and Italy
keep in mind change Euro US dollar is quite even

Nightster S Italy 18.100 Euros - US 14,999 US dollars
Sportster S Italy 18.900 Euro - US 16,399 US dollars
Low Rider S Italy 22.700 Euros - US 18,199 US dollars
Fat Boy 114 Italy 26.900 Euros - US 20.199 US dollars

IMO this is the last drop
unless the Bronx will be gorgeous... but I doubt personally about that... I think my days with Mo.Co. are over for good... people are not pleased to pour their money in fees...

why complaining, the redhaired former Präsident of the US rises taxes on foreign goods and the EU did the same. That´s the game they play for the news and voters. Of course that allways hit the not so rich part of the community and not the golfplayers.

Oddly, the Moto Guzzi V85TT I bought was actually not so expensive. I'm trying to figure out how a mostly hand-built Italian bike can be sold cheaper than the equivalent Chinese made BMW. Less than a Nightster and has Brembos and shaft drive.
