Piaggio recently honored its top U.S. dealers with a tour of the Moto Guzzi plant in Mandello del Lario, the Aprilia facility in Noale, the Piaggio/Vespa factory in Pontedera and a visit to EICMA 2016.
“We wanted to give this rare access to this select group of high-performing dealers,” said Mario Di Mario, President and CEO of Piaggio Group Americas, Inc. “There is a passion for motorcycles and scooters in Italy that has to be experienced in person. Giving the dealership principles and sales managers the additional perspective in visiting the birth places of the brands, and seeing the manufacturing facilities, is an experience I believe invigorates their interest in our brands, and will not soon be forgotten.”
