A message for our dealers Join the MRP nation!

Guys, this is an election year and scooter sales are up. Gas prices, the economic slowdown, and just interest in the units have sent scooter sales skyrocketing. Some say its $4 gas and the possibility of $5 gas before the end of the year, but who knows what it could be. So lots of new stores opening, lots of interest. More sales than ever before, but what about the quality of stores and stock? Are most of these new stores Just In Time stores? or are they stocking parts and accessories. We want all the new dealers to see us as their partners. I'm not saying the US should be more like Rome next week, but if you're new to the industry or if you are opening a scooter shop stock parts, sell online, and learn about what you sell. There is more to the store than just selling scooters in the store.
The Motorcycle Industry Council says nationwide, sales were up 24 percent in the first quarter of 2008, and there's no indication they're going to let up. Sales of scooters are up and so parts are going up as well, but you have to prepare and have the right suppliers. So make MRP your partner in this new project.

If you have a scooter store or your opening a scooter store give us a call.
