Good places to buy 919/Hornet 900 stuff in Italy?

Posted in Hornet's Nest, but I also wanted to check with my fellow State-side 9'ers.

Anyone know of some good places to buy 919/Hornet 900 accessories in Italy? I'd like to pick up a few trick bits that are hard to find in the US, like the DPM (De Pretto Moto) grab rail/rack. I'll be working my way down thru Venice, Bologna, Florence, Rome, Naples, and Sorrento (and later spending a few days in Barcelona, Spain) over the next three weeks. I hope to have a heavy suitcase when I return!

TIA!

I have no idea either, but if you see a nice, lightly used RC211V pick it up and I'll toss you some cash later. I'd prefer the real life size just so you know.

Does anyone know if De Pretto Moto has a new web address? They had a few parts that I wanted but their website has been "under construction" most of this year....

Enjoy the trip!! I'm jealous.

Dainese stores are awesome, one in Rome and one in Milan... Get ready to pay waaayyy to much, the dollar doesn't get you very much these days.

Thanks for all the replies guys and sorry about my own late rely! The trip was a real whirlwind!

Unfortunately given all we had lined up, I had too little time to really find anything for my 9er.

Apparently, the vacation priorities were all wrong... J/K - hope you had a great trip despite coming home without the suitcases full of cool parts!!
