I can still get new parts for my (at least) 25 year Nanni in australia
, of course they are quite expensive, but at least they seem to still be supporting them in australia
Beta make a good engine. At the moment service
is very good. As the company expands hopefully they will continue to offer the same suport at a good price
But none of the big engine manufacturers have been able to provide worldwide stock of spare parts for obsolete engines at a cheap
price, and I doubt Beta will be able to as well unless they go for a more centralized approach.
Even then, when they are down to the last 50 exhaust
manifolds for a very old out of production engine, economics mean that the price for that part will skyrocket.
