Any updates on this?
Great, keep us informed.
I just realised that Aprilia , Norton and Beta owners are in the same boat as Cayanne was the sole importer for them as well.
Wonder if Fireitup would consider taking up those franchises as Craig had great experience with those brands.
*Just sent Berto at Fireitup an email, lets see what he says...
Speak to Chris at Fireitup. He is their service adviser.A bit of an update regarding the warranty issue, finally. My radiator sprung a leak (a fairly common occurrence from what I've read here), so I contacted TRAFICC about it and they have organised for Fire It Up to process the warranty claim - thankfully.
This was only late yesterday afternoon, so still waiting for the appropriate person at Fire It Up to contact me back (I did receive a reply from their F&I manager), so I will revert back once there have been further developments.
This is a positive development though, as both Fire It Up and TRAFICC are on the ball, and it looks like Fire It Up will be sorting out the warranties after Cayenne dropped us... Hopefully Fire It Up will become the authorised MV Agusta Dealership in SA soon.
Evolutionbike use DHL and normally takes a few days after dispatch to arrive (less than a week shipping time). The shipping cost is normally around 65 euro for a mediumish parcel from Italy using DHL. Duties depends on value but budget around 20%. DHL will call you for payment of the duties once it lands.Hi PTsalas, I have actually just got off the phone with him, really nice guy and very helpful. He did say that there was a 3 week wait to get a booking date... Oh well, there's not much choice in that matter hahaha.
It sounds like Fire It Up WILL be the authorised dealer, Chris said they are in talks with MV Agusta and they should have it buttoned up soon. Great news for us! Hopefully they will be able to import the parts we need in the near future, so we don't have to do it ourselves.
Thanks for the advice, I'm going to have a look at Evolutionbike.it. What shipping company did you use?
Was the warranty work at Fireitup done under a 3rd party warranty provider?If Fire it up do become the authorized dealer, I hope they get their sht sorted out... I've had all my MV work done by them, they did the sprag clutch under warrenty too but as of late their pricing has been a little bonkers.
I fully understand they need to make a profit & pay staff etc but R500 a spark plug is a little over the top.
Do tell us your story (even by PM if you must).This is a little Bitter sweet to be honest. Great news that MV owners won't be stranded anymore but Fire it up should change their name to F it up . Thats unfortunately all they've done since I bought my MV from them:|.
try ebayThis might be a little off topic but does any of my fellow South African owners have a good source to buy a 55mm socket for the rear wheel nut ?
