So, what now Piaggio?
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.
