The deal doesn't stop at Aprilia for Piaggio:

Quote:
After starting limited-volume import of its Aprilia range early this year, the company is now considering a full-fledged motorcycle business in India, by bringing in other brands like Derbi, Gilera and Moto Guzzi. "We are carrying out a detailed feasibility study of the Indian motorcycle market to explore its potential and understand how we should enter, if we decide to do so," Ravi Chopra, CMD of Piaggio Vehicles India, told TOI here.

And I stand corrected. Aprilia is officially here. Surprised that they did not have an 'official launch' event.

Isn't this the same guy who is in the racing world? If so, then yes, I know him. He bought my grandfathers 1960's Jawa, and I guess he still owns it.

Thats a news. Aprilia has entered the Indian market without any fanfare. I dont see any official website yet. Pune dealership seems to be the first in the country.

Guys I don't think Aprilia did a silent launch. I remember reading on xbhp or some other site that they launched the bikes at the Mumbai Motor show back in Jan 2011.

They definitely have big plans for India and it would be awesome to receive their more exclusive brands like Moto Guzzi and others. I always liked the Piaggio group
