We have the advantage of understanding customer needs in India with the added advantage of our strong R&D in Europe and India. We have a plethora of products and engines that we have access to and will bring in the required ones to India, based on customer requirements and suitability.”
He added, “To ensure these offerings come closer to the customer, we are expanding our reach and the addition of these 100 dealerships is a step in that direction. We are focusing on enhancing Piaggio’s market share. Despite the challenges during these times of the pandemic, we have expanded our network across various states in India and are also strengthening our presence overseas.
