Wait... I didn't just dream about it? I didn't think it could get any worse than this:

But I guess it has...
Seems a weird way to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Italy - with an ugly ass bike.

Seriously, bring back the Pista Concept matte black!!!! That is such a sexy bike.

The Super Pista was first released in matte black... albeit... not with the celeste graphics, but it was still matte black.



I would love to see a new Super Pista inspired by the Oltre Limited. Also, would love to see them redesign the hideous seat tube and go back to something the same size as the Concept.

Me too. Why do they have something against matte black bikes? Frankly to be honest I never liked the whole white/celeste color scheme.

Not gonna lie, I liked the blue/white. The build that was posted earlier is just a horrible build of it.
