Eurobike in Cape Town
« on: May 31, 2019, 12:59:31 pm »
With the demise of Cayenne in JHB, it's become a hassle to get service kits for my Aprilias in Gauteng ( JHB/PTA ) areas.
I have imported stuff from AF1 Racing in the States, but its rather expensive with our strong currency  ::)
Has anyone perhaps had dealings with Eurobike CT, more particularly from an Aprilia spares stock perspective ?

I will always give a shout out to a good company.  Eurobike is NOT one of them.

Are standard service items not available from general bike shops?

Plenty Aprilia roadbikes around in SA, all these guys must have someone taking care of their bikes.
Maybe try IMOC, Italian motorcycles owners club?
Sure you can get hold of someone, maybe a fb page?

I bought my BMW service parts from general bike shops like Trac Mac etc.

What are you looking for HiFlo has Aprilia RSV4 etc listed under their oil filters, same with airfilters, etc.

If it is engine specific parts it will be agents or internet.

Shot for this info.I will go check on the standard service items locally.It seems I need an engine specific part or two, which I will have to source from AF1 Racing.

The other place I have used in the past

https://www.wemoto.com

Their shipping is not that crazy and they are very very fast.

Best if you have a buddy or someone and you can club together to split shipping etc.

Vespa has been  appointed official service agents in za by piaggio.  Try them in jhb. I am having my swingarm replaced on a safety recall despite it being more than 10 years late. The vespa guys are on the ball.
