The following comments were submitted by Piaggio/Vespa franchised dealerships in the Q1 2014 Dealer Sentiment Index research study, produced by Baird Research and Dealernews.
- Scooter sales were way down last year for us. Early Vespa sales have been promising, although most have been noncurrent MP3 250s and 400s we bought late last year.
- We have way too many 2013 Vespas left. 2014s are the same price in most cases, and they increased the warranty from one to two years on 2014s only, so that makes it tough to move 2013 Vespas.
