I heard from Maz at Akron Mopeds that the Vespa-Piaggio Ciao was being reintroduced into the US market. I checked the Piaggio website ... and the information is correct. They will be available at various locations in the late quarter of 2003. I can't wait.
On a related note, the Tomos Flexer is being introduced into the US market as well. It has the Italian styling I like.
Also, Puch is releasing new mopeds in Canada.
Is a moped revival on the foot?
