Vespa scooters is known all over world. I presume people know. Check. During the Molito Street Fair Oktoberfest 2019, just about a week ago, a number of people dropped by to our tent-booth, including a handsome young man who approached me as I was standing beside one of our units and whispered to my ears, “[I do not know about scooters, but my friends have Vespa scooters…]”. “Yes, sir!” I said. Vespa is premium scooters, a good investment and it builds up community. So while it is true that people worldwide know this amazing vehicles, not everyone one actually knows it and so there is the need to keep introducing Vespa scooters to others, and to help them know more about it, for their appreciation. Then an expat and father of seven lovely kids, also came and asked me, “What makes it different from other scooters?”. Oh my?! I am not really sure what best to tell him to aid his decision either to invest on one, or more – one each for his seven beautiful children – or on something else greater. “I am getting seven units, one for each of them,” he said, “if you give me 50% discount”. “Done,” I said, “you get 50% discount of our free Vespa T-shirt”. The guy gave me a big grin and went his way. His wife, after looking around with a wide smile, signed her name on our clients list. Their seven beautiful children, also looked around, and went with their parents. Then also came a lady in a nice yellow terno who may have a good answer to the question, “I have long been dreaming of having one of these,” she said. “[Let me just get over my wedding. Get in touch with me, I gave you my real cell phone number],” she added. Wow! Thank you! But, wait! We should have asked her what made Vespa Scooter her dream. We were lost in the picture-taking and talks about which color is best for her – yellow, white, red or black? Anyway, maybe the guy who owns 3 Vespa scooters, and just recently bought the latest edition of the Vespa 300cc, has the best answer. He must be making it his collection. “Vespa Scooter is addicting,” he said. And at the back of my mind I was saying, “You may get your next unit of your classy scooter collection from Vespa Imus Cavite. We are just along Aguinaldo Highway, Brgy Palico-1, Imus, Cavite. We are near the LTO. Google the location of Danocars Trading/Vespa Imus Cavite. You will find it”. He gets it, I know. Did he say, “addicting”? And why is that? Well, I did not ask the gentleman though. Then there is one more guy who came looking at the Vespa scooters on the ground. I talked with him and he asked me if there is financing for the units. “Yes we have scooter loan program and we also accept credit cards payment,” Further, I told him about our flexibility that we accept trade-in/swapping of any brand and model of old cars. “Actually, I want to pay in cash, he said, “Oh, that is nice,” I uttered to my self. And he also shared with me, “[I am selling my other scooter, another brand, latest model, but I don’t like it]”. And I can only wonder why, but did not ask him about it.
So, what makes Vespa Scooter different from its kind? Technically, there are a number of answers to this question, but it seems to me the best persons to answer this great question are the ones who have been owners and riders of Vespa Scooters. As they say, “you won’t know until you ride one”.
