Design Corse ceasing operations

George, Andrew and I haven't purchased anything from them in some time and I think that might be the reason they are closing. All jokes aside, it's sad that we are losing a great vendor. Their selection and service have been impeccable during the years I've done business with Al.

Symptomatic of the crappy sport bike market and that of the entire motorcycle industry at present.

That is very sad...

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

I guess they have closed their doors, effectively immediately...can't access their site except for the landing page shown above.

Sudden and sad. I'm fortunate to have purchased on sale over the holidays all the upgrades I wanted to do over the winter: clutch slave, water pump, Samco, rear hub, and misc.

Sad news indeed. Itís difficult to find a trustworthy supplier, especially one at a great distance. Their level of service was beyond reproach
