Wonder if they'd still honour the '10 year (from date of purchase) guarantee? :|

"Each model has a serial number stamped on the frame ...."

Wow, that makes it worth every penny of the asking.

ISTR reading on here that these were regular Scapin models with different paint and stickers. Nice bikes but nothing really special.

Indeed. It's not like Senna was involved with the design like with the Honda NSX. He merely allowed them to use his name.

Still, IMO it's a nice bike and having his name linked to it is just icing on the cake. Unfortunately at £1.3K the cake is quite expensive.
