  • Get Ready for Gilera, Derbi and the likes

    Of course through the mother company of PIAGGIO, which also means Aprilia is also going to be here, albeit the scooters... so what
    And they also own Guzzi and Laverda.

    Wasn't Bajaj saying they are going to tie up with Aprilia and Triumph after the KTM deal?

    Piaggio to launch Vespa scooters by March 2010
    Source: Economic Times

    MUMBAI | PUNE: Piaggio will launch its 100-150cc scooteras by March next year, after the Italian firm restricted its India operations to light

    The Italian re-returns
    Kuleshwar Singh14/10/2009 12:00:00 The Italian automaker Piaggio leashes new life into Vespa
    The Italian co. said they plan on investing between 90-100 million euros a year the world over, over the next four years and expect to raise their turnover by 20 % by 2012.

    Piaggio has established itself very well in the 3 wheeler, cargo as well as in the passenger segment in India. Owing to its exceptional standards and commitment to its customers they have a customer base of over 700,000 satisfied customers which is only set to increase by March 2010 with the launch of these scooters. So lets see if the Italian co. can create a dent in the already competitive Indian two wheeler market.

        Ohh yes the Mp3, the rs125, 50 ... and yes. RSV4. ok. but seriously. how many indians are aware of these brands. they may need to have shops in Major Shopping malls across the country to let people know who they are. according to Many indians. Bajaj was a mastermind behind the Honda Cub and the Vespa. expect the really old sckool.

        but great news. i hope they launch the Shiver, Dorso, Gp800 and the F500

              Agree they are not aware now. But, the way KTM made themselves known, Aprilia can make a similar successful effort!

              I don't think we'll see RSV4 in market, the very next year. But scooters maybe...

              If that happens, The Piaggio MP3 would be the only MP3 that can't be pirated in India. Anyway, let's see when they show up...

                  Riding is a way of life. Sometimes, it might also be a way of giving life. So Ride safe. In both contexts.

                              ....Piaggio Vehicles India, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Italian two-wheeler maker, will launch its well-known Vespa scooters, followed by brands such as Gilera, Aprilia and Derbi, a small motorcycle.

                              For the common man almost all the above mentioned brands are alien.. with the expection of Vespa.
                              Bringing in a multitude brands will only confuse the customer.

                              Unless manufactured in India, it is nearly impossible to price "smartly".
