2013 EICMA and the State of the Market in the USA.

Keynote points: 
As EICMA continues this week in Italy, the EU has entered its double dip recession.
Key Scooter Markets are down including Spain, Italy, France.
UK sales stabilized.
Only Germany rebounded in sales for 2012
At EICMA new models from Kymco, Honda, the New Vespa 946 were showcased.

The US Market finally had a good year, but it has not fully recovered due to the saturation of the market by multiple importers. Chinese companies continue to flood the market now by selling to dealers and smaller distributors importing the same private label brands from China.
EPA crackdown read here:

The USA lost over 440 retail mom and pop shops thanks to the poor economy, banks unwilling to lend to small companies, repossessions by General Electric Finance, and Chinese exporters lowering prices below cost causing multiple importer failures. The US is still not out of the woods yet so the great leap forward will hopefully come in 2013. Many importers are barely hanging on with certain brands being only maintained with parts like TGB and Adly without distribution networks.

The scooter maven then shows you how to recycle a scooter, send it back to China as scrap metal.

The Scooter Maven reports on the saturation of the US market, the rebound in sales in 2012.
