While many manufacturers choose to train technicians at technical colleges, we believe that nothing compares to getting the inside story about the latest Aprilia, Moto Guzzi, Piaggio or Vespa straight from the factorys own technical experts,
says Erik Larson, director of technical service and warranty for Piaggio Group Americas. Factory-level training means that our dealer service professionals will learn from the very best the technical professionals who were part of a new motorcycle or scooter models actual development. And, that first-hand factory expertise translates into a real service edge for Piaggio dealers.
The new technical center will also give Piaggio a new home base for road and off-road testing.
