MotoItalia is still the distributor of Piaggio

Received this in my email today.
So, what now Piaggio?


MOTOITALIA PHILIPPINES, INC.
OFFICIAL STATEMENT

16 July 2012

To address the current issue that has been a concern to the scooter and motorcycle community this past week, we are now releasing the official statement of MotoItalia Philippines, Inc. (MPI) on this matter. It took us time to present our side of the story as we had to ensure that we only give the riding public the most accurate and truthful account about the issue on hand.

  • To clear things, MPI is still the incumbent distributor of the Piaggio, Vespa and Gilera brands as confirmed by Piaggio Asia Pacific (PAP).
  • MPI’s retail prices are aligned with the retail prices of previous Vespa distributors in the Philippines and the other PAP distributors within the Asian region.
  • MPI assures the riding public that all units being sold by MPI and its dealers are completely built-up (CBUs) and imported directly from Piaggio’s own assembly plants and MPI is paying the appropriate taxes, duties and other required legal expenses for its inventory.
  • MPI’s Aftersales Support Team is duly trained and certified by PAP and is complete with special tools and equipment specific to Piaggio, Vespa and Gilera scooters

Please be assured that these issues will not in any way affect the quality of our service to our patrons and it is business as usual for MotoItalia Philippines, Inc. sales and service operations.

Our passion for the Vespa brand and our support to the Vespa community still remains.

    Everybody has a natural tendency to look for a bargain. Right now I don’t think the issue is who really is the official distributor. What is being sold are genuine Vespas albeit made in Vietnam (some models of Triumph, KTM, Ducati and engines of BMWs are made in Asia) at way lower prices. Presuming everything is on the up and up (the third bullet point seems like an accusation), it is but natural for our kababayans to flock to this new distributor and finally be part of the Vespa experience. After all Enrico Piaggio wanted the Vespa to be affordable to the masses.
