Our Gilera Owners Club (UK) does have a list of known problems for the Saturno (nothing too drastic, but better to be aware of possible problems, so they can be checked/fixed before being major disasters). If you can email me firstname.lastname@example.org

8. Your name if you wish it to be shown on the completed list
Thank you for your help
If you are able to help us, it would be very much appreciated as the vast majority of Saturnos built were for the Japanese market and many are still there.
