We have received pricing information, and will be getting this to you soon.

I am trying to put together a "prime the pump" deal for everyone, but have to convince the bosses that it will be worth doing. It is "winter", so maybe I can entice you guys to do some advertising for us out in the real World so that when Spring arrives, we can move along with some speed at normal prices...

Let you know soon, probably later today of what I can convince them of...!

These are the Zard Trofeo's used in the Italian Cup series, is this what you are looking for?

Yes, these are for the Thruxton, anybody know if they will fit the Bonneville?

Or the Scrambler?

Thanks for that Steve, but the styling is not right for the Scrambler. My ideal would be like the high level pipe you have shown at the beginning of the thread for the Scrambler but instead of a two into one, have a seperate left pipe following the same lines as the right pipe. If you see what I mean.
Understood...

My thoughts would be that this would be a very good looking exhaust, but price is already a tough subject and two of these only doubles everything! :-D

OK everyone, here is what we have so far:

Scrambler 2-1 High Version: Est. 2007 Retail $1.049.95

Bonneville 2-1 Cross Version: Est 2007 Retail $979.95

Bonneville 2-1 Low Version: Est 2007 Retail $999.95

So here is what I have gotten them to agree to:

1) VERY limited time only, orders must be placed with us before the ending date, which they are telling me will be BEFORE the end of the year. No specific date, just when they decide they have sold enough to have "primed the pump" and it is time to get the dealers back on with us.

2) Inventory is due to arrive mid to late January, we will keep you informed

3) We will give 7 days notice to the end of the sale so everyone needs to keep an eye on this thread if you are holding out.

4) There is to be no whinning after the boss says to push the prices back to retail. :-D Sorry, it is a limited time offer and we have to get our dealers back in the game for the season.

What I convinced them of is that we can spend lots of money on advertising and marketing, or we can just give customers the discount and let THEM tell everyone about the product.

If it works right, some people up here will get VERY good deals on a VERY good product. In return, they will say what they wish, which we are hoping is all positive and wonderful. This will give us more "real" marketing then any ad is capable of, and there is nothing better then the personal testimonial.

We get the Scrambler product line up and running with customers BEFORE Spring arrives, thus customers will already be talking about Zard when season hits, meaning we can sell them LOTS of stuff at regular prices. Which is an additional bonus to our retailers, they have a product which customers are already asking for, which is the best advertising money can buy.

Lastly, any issues, fitments to accessories (rearsets, sound issues, installation tips, etc) can be worked out here in the off season, again helping Triumph riders and Zard with any details or questions that people have.

We help you, you help us, everyone is happy...

So here we go:

Scrambler 2-1 High Version: Holiday Sale $769.95

Scrambler 2-1 Cross Version: Holiday Sale $679.95

Scrambler 2-1 Low Version: Holiday Sale $699.95

Prices do not include shipping, we are in Chicago so UPS Ground to most places in America will be around $25...?

Hope you understand and like what we have done here, maybe the Internet can start a whole new way for products and customers to meet up...

Let me know if you have any questions.

I honestly do not know for 100% sure but would bet it does. This is part of our "holiday sale" reasoning, to work out some of the side questions...

But as long as you don't damage the system (back to us "new" so we have no problem re-selling it) we will accept it back if it does not...

Work for you?

Are the Scrambler "high 2 into 1" available in a "headers only" version? I can make my own can,but I do like the look of those headers.The "cross" versions still leave me cold. Sorry.
We have not even manufactured the first batch and you guys are already wanting us to part them out!!! :-D :-D :-D

Don't know, let's get them rolling and see where we end up. I would guess that at some point there will be an ability to do this as the can would be a useful spare for crash repairs and such....

The 2-1 high is about to release, mid-April we are told. As soon as we have any information we will post and pass it along.

There has been more then a couple of delays due to the very high demand for the new Zard products, which is OK and preferred to the alternative. But when Factory Ducati tours the country with your exhaust at the entrance to their booth, you get a bit more exposure then planned for. All good, but ramping up production while trying to maintain quality is always a difficult task.

We are keeping tabs on the progress of the new products and their release dates, just have to "make hay" with the products we have orders for already and try to get the new ones launched.

Let us know if you have any questions, happy to assist you.

Alright we have something!!!

The Zard 2-1 high mounts are due to release and ship to us on April 13th, which means we should have them on the shelf somewhere near the 19th or 20th...

One down, three more versions to go! :-D
