Whether for passion or necessity, motorcycles and scooters recorded positive numbers in the first ten months of the year if compared to 2019. Despite a narrative made up of gentle mobility, goodbye to private vehicles and extensive use of scooters, “real life” shows the need for people to move quickly and individually to also avoid the risk of contagion from Covid19. All this in a safe way, as it can be when traveling with the correct technical clothing on board a motorcycle or scooter and not on a scooter while traveling along a provincial road. According to what was reported by Confindustria Ancma (National Association of Cycle Motorcycle Accessories), the positive trend of the motorized two-wheeler market continues.
