I like to think I might have had a hand in that. I know my wife sure does We both ride, me: scooters, her: horses. In the long run scooters are a lot more economical.

It is amazing how the price of fuel has somewhat increased this growth. Curious what the numbers will be for next year....with the new LX models rolling out this fall and the new GTS.....

The months after the big gas price increases were WAY up. September 05 and October 05 sales were both ~100% higher than those months in 2004, according to Piaggio USA. They say that the scooter market is experiencing the highest growth rate of the last 5 years.
