Italian Wedding - Piaggio and Aprilia

Looks like it's more and more likely that Italian motorcycle manufacturer Aprilia will be taken over by Italian scooter manufacturer Piaggio.

Aprilia Motorcycle's shareholders have signed a preliminary agreement with Piaggio, giving them the possibility of purchasing 100% of Aprilia.

Personally, I think this is a better match than Ducati buying Aprilia, since Piaggio does not have any motorcycles of the Aprilia type in their product range (Gilera and Derbi), while Ducati only has sports motorcycles. But still better would be a marriage between Aprilia Motorcycles and Bombardier !! Link
