    This is a great move by Piaggio India. It offers more choices to the well-heeled motorcycle enthusiasts, to those looking to buy a different type of bike.

    I hope they offer a good sales and after-sales experience as well, considering the horror stories one can hear from customers of certain brands. If Piaggio wants to forge a good impression on the enthusiast crowd, they should have a top-notch team taking care of the sales and service of Aprilia and Moto Guzzi. Enriching the after-sales experience is the best way to assure a customer's loyalty to a brand.
