Scooter Sales up in MIC numbers for 2011, but still down compared to past

Scooter sales were up a whopping 81 percent in March 2011 compared to March of 2010.

Dealer News just posted some interesting info

However, most of this is old inventory in my opinion. Probably 2008-2010 inventory sitting on floors. I've always said a 10% increase in the Japanese brands translates into a 25% increase for the Chinese / Taiwanese. So it means a lot of dealers are starting to move 2008-2009 models still on the floor.

Only a handful of companies report to the MIC, but they happen to be the bigger brands with the bigger dealers like Honda, Yamaha, and Piaggio Group.
