     Its interesting to see the GTS Super nearly match the sales of the GTS 250. I tihnk Its going to be a popular Vespa here in Australia also, but by no means those numbers.

     Very interesting Allen,  I knew Honda were doing very well in Italy with their "SH" series (designed and built at Honda's facility in Italy),  but I'm surprised the Yamaha Tmax should grab first place overall, given it is a high end premium product.

    Do you have access to the 50cc market figures ?

     yeh nothing actually , I believe the market overall was 9% up on last year which is pretty strong given the state of the Italian economy. I dare say when things get tighter people look towards cheap forms of transportation.

    Ive attached the top 100 Doc for a overall better look

    Re: Italian Scooter Market - July 2008

    Those figures would have to be for the first half of the year right? Not just July?

    Interesting the Asians (Japanese, Taiwanese etc) have such a firm foothold on what most people would consider the traditional home of the scooter...

     Here are the figures for May 2008 so you can see the difference and get a feel for the units achieved per month. I think the Italian market buys on the practicality in mind and not so much the heart. Very mature market of course and the scooter would be chosen on what does the job best.....

    Those figures just show how far behind we are in this part of the world.

    Interesting that the Agility is on the list and fairly close to the top too Big Smile

    Wife first, scooters and birds second.
    Got to remember that order......

    The 125cc Bug Agility is rather ill, may be terminal so onto the Mighty Mio 100!

    Is there any word on us getting the "enhanced" Agility range?

    Allan,if you can somehow find the 50cc sales figures for Italy,that would be fascinating to view,because they have a huge market, all the makes & models,and love there 50's.

    Re: Italian Scooter Market - July 2008

    Allen,

     If the Honda Sh 300 i is the third biggest seller over there, then why don't you think Honda will ever sell it in Australia? There are lots of 250cc scooters available here which sell well and the Honda 300 is a 279cc, I believe, so it's just a little bigger but in the same sort of engine category. I think it would attract a lot of buyers who want a slim, agile scooter with maxi-scooter performance. I have read that its top speed is 150km/h + but it only weighs about 170 something kilos.

    Note how many big wheeled scooters that are in this list.  Not surprising given the roads!  Lots of big scooters too.  But isn't it surprising how well the Japanese brands are selling compared to the home-grown ones.  Mind you, so many Italian households have got a Vespa in them already that they probably don't think that they need another one!

    I have a feeling the 50cc market might tell a different story,showing home-grown dominating the asian brands.

    I'd like to think so too - but unfortunatey I doubt it.  Italian kids are the same as the rest of the world.  Perennially skint.  So I reckon cheap will be the main order of the day.

    I wonder what demographic buys all those TMAX's...Rich businessmen, maybe.
