This has made me take a very close look at my swingarm, as I've got nearly 42000 miles on the clock. No sign of cracks or concave welding, just some scrapes from a poorly adjusted chain.

Has anyone seen what the failure rate is as a percentage of bikes manufactured?

Out of curiosity I contacted WeBuyAnyBike for a price for the GP, having had good quotes from them in the past on other bikes. They don't want to buy a Granpasso :(

They are not mainstream bikes, and would never give a true value...or appreciate there worth as great Italian motorcycles.

The new 'X-Cape' 1200 has a different design of swing arm - probably a lot heavier but might be worth an investigation for those who are really worried?

Good riding,
