As reported by Chris Woodyard in USA Today...
Motorcycle sales last year jumped to their highest level since 1979, the Motorcycle Industy Council says.

Pushed by an increase in female riders and the broadening appeal of motor scooters and other small, less-expensive two-wheelers, sales rose 4.7 percent to top 1 million for the second-consecutive year, according to MIC.

Scooters such as Vespa and Aprilia, popular on campuses and in some urban areas, accounted for 5% of motorcycle sales last year, MIC says, their sales climbing 3.8% from 2003. That's much slower growth, though. The '03 sales were up 19.8% from 2002.
I am guessing here that Burgman & Silverwings are not part of this equation
And perhaps sales are not down for them. :?:
