  1. That first one is definitely a reversal of previous marketing campaigns. Down to the cops, the MP3 makes a lot of sense in most areas but just like previous attempts won’t happen in Chicago.

  2. You forgot to include the Piaggio USA articles in the new issue of Dealernews. Seems that dealers are not too happy with Piaggio.

  3. Care to summarize? They don’t put the juicy news on the website.

  4. No ones laying out $9400 for a GTV unless there is a dealer out there who is adding $2500 on top of the MSRP.

  5. Those aren’t American dollars, I think they’re New Zealand dollars.

  6. It IS U.S. dollars, but not in the U.S.

    The story (.za=South Africa) read:

    “The rest of it buys 60 years of heritage, of style distilled to perfection over time as only the Italians can do it. I’m not sure that I would lay out 70 grand for a GTV250 – but it’s not actually all that expensive, is it?”

    and also quoted the price as: R69 950. (70K South African Rands), the same price quoted on Vespa’s South Africa site, which converts to $US9,683.28.

    So sorry, I undervalued it by $200, I guess the exchange rate changed in the last couple days, you should have bought one then!

    (Other than being in the wrong country, your math is correct, the US site lists the GTV at $6,899)
