that is what I've heard too, all Sports have the flat tappets. I imagine a 2012 model will have the latest version flats.
 
I bought a 2014 reg 2012 manuf Sport. My philosophy is to ride what I enjoy. Any tappet or swarf are Piaggio's problem not mine. I ride it like I stole it and covered 9000 brilliant miles so far
 
I could have equally bought a roller-equipped Norge or Stelvio but since they are not what I want I got the Sport. I sleep well at night, I imagine Piaggio management are not overly concerned, and the Corsa is a joy to behold and ride every day

Thanks for that positive news, I have owned two eight valve motors before and not had any problem but I had set my sights on nice red Corsa this time thinking it would be safe with roller tappets, which year did they go out of production? the 14 reg one I am looking at is £7250 inc delivery, just trying to get some more info on the recall work they have done and I'm probably going to go for it

If no rollers £6000 would be what I would offer.

Ok spoken to the service guy today and they have replaced the tappets with rollers, Piaggio paid for the parts but not the labour, this put my mind at rest so I've bought it, so I have a 1200 Sport Corsa with roller tappets, what can possibly go wrong???

Well not really, they took the bike in as a part/ex and now they have sold it to me for a profit no doubt

Well I've had a 2v since 2007 - its done over 50,000 and while I have had the odd moan, it hasnt ever really let me down - it is a fabulous bike. If you want to make yours a bit better get the Agostini (I think) cross over and pipes. I also upgraded the suspension front and rear to Hyperpro - and that really improved things too.
But it is an excellent bike as it is.

Congratulations
Adam
