Ride to Amerivespa with Kymco

April 26, 2010

KymcoUSA (once again) seems to be more excited about Amerivespa than VespaUSA, they had the kinda-neat idea to plan a group ride from their South Carolina HQ down to San Antonio, Texas for Amerivespa (May 27 – 31, 2010). They’re even offering to pay for gas for anyone else that comes along. If you’re a Kymco fan, this sounds like a pretty neat opportunity to get some face time with Kymco. On top of that, it’s good to know Kymco’s sales and marketing folks actually ride scooters occasionally, unlike most other brands. Find more info in this ridiculously long Constant Comment link, because I couldn’t find anything about it on Kymco’s site. VespaUSA, likewise, has nothing about Amerivespa on their site, despite being the title sponsor. Even worse, Vespa has not posted any news on their site since December. I don’t expect these guys to be blogging daily, frankly, no one would read it, but when you take the time and effort to plan an event or promotion, put it on your site, if for no other reason than to make it clear you’re still in business! I take all that back, see below, sorry.

    There is a blurb about Amerivespa on VespaUSA’s website. It’s in the “Latest News” feed box, in the lower left hand corner of the homepage. :)

    What a really good idea. There is a secret part of me that hopes a bunch of people show up on a host of 4 stroke 50cc bikes.

    I’m an idiot, I think I was looking at the PiaggioUSA site. The Vespa site has improved a lot since last time I checked. Their “Local Rides” deal is a pretty neat idea, too.

When scooter news breaks, we put it under a tarp in the garage. Coudal Partners WordPress Hecho en Apple Hecho en Chicago Vespa Club of America
