Yes, however half of my reply didn't post. The Oro is like a first edition book by a famous author if you like. I don't believe one is worth the sum of it's parts at 16 grand now, but in say 30 years time they may be worth a fortune to a collector. Look at Brough Superior SS100 or a Vincent Black Shadow, even early Z1's and CB750's fetch big money these days. As a functioning bike I'd sooner have my old Evo III than an Oro, but as an investment for the future? Well who knows.
You make a fair point Al. It's true in the 20's and 30's I don't think the phrase 'limited edition' had been coined. But with no offence intended to those with 'limited edition' F4's or Brutales, I think Oro's will be worth more in the longer term.
As someone who can't afford to have a bike purely as an investment I would have a Senna or an Ago rather than an Oro every time. If I could afford a Tamburini or a Veltro I think I would be too scared to ride it because of what it cost me. Perhaps Oro prices will fall further but ultimately I think they will level out and begin to rise, that's just my humble opinion of course.
