  1. Hi all,



    I searched for a thread re subject but couldnt find one. I was looking at maybe getting this bike:

    Gran Milano 440 - Classic Bikes - SWM Motorcycles

    I have emailed Melbourne distributor Mojo Motorcycles for information but havent heard back. Does anyone know when these will be released and a rough price?

    Is there anyone else excited for these/this particular model? I can see myself riding this, as I dont need much power, till the end of my days :)

    Cheers,
    Dave

    The Australian distributor will be the only one that will know for certain. The bike will need to be checked to Australian Design Rules and the local distributor will probably be the one guiding that along. Don't know much about them, they used to make trials and enduro bikes. I thought they had closed up but a quick Google shows they have been resurrected.

  7. Good or bad, I now get to drool over the Gran Milano 440 till its reviewed :p

  8. Yes Shineray supplied the cash but manufacturing is in Italy and the CEO of the company is Ampelio Macchi who has been with Cagiva and Husqvarna so he knows the engineering side of bikes. It will be interesting to see how they go.

  9. If anyones interested, going by their facebook page, it doesnt appear they have ramped up production for this particular model yet. Ill be keeping a close eye on it and repost with updates.
