                            province. Sales boom and information request for electric scooters and bicycles somewhat throughout the province, albeit with some exceptions in some commercial activities in the Savona area. But now we explain why.

Co-responsible for the sold-out initiated in these days in numerous retail stores and department stores, together with the spring days more favorable for exits and at the end of the lockdown, is the mobility bonus however, it will only be usable by adults residing in Municipalities that exceed 50 thousand inhabitants.

It will be possible to purchase the soft mobility vehicle in any shop, online or physical, the important thing is to request an invoice in order to submit a refund request. According to the legislation, bicycles (with or without pedal assistance), handbikes and electric vehicles, both new and used, can be purchased. However, the bonus cannot be used for accessories such as helmets, batteries and chains.

Savonese are the only inhabitants of the whole province to be able to take advantage of the bonus which provides for a refund of 60% of the purchase price of bicycles, electric scooters, hoverboards and segways. The contribution, however, cannot exceed 500 euros.

Fabrizio Vergassola of the commercial chain Euronics of Savona, tells us that: “There has been a boom in requests and information for bicycles and scooters. Compared to the few and modest requests of previous years, interest has increased. Not a day goes by without them selling or coming request more information on scooters than bikes, with a 3: 1 ratio“.

“And the reason for this trend – explains Vergassola – is to be found in conceiving the electric scooter as an alternative to the scooter, mainly for getting around for work reasons. While the bicycle is more understood as a means reserved for recreation and fun also with the family “.

And the increase in the demand for electric scooters seems – according to Vergassola and Euronics customers – also driven by a propensity to purchase this type of vehicle even of a certain value.

L‘Olmo company from Celle Ligure in recent days there has been an exponential increase in the sale and request for information on bicycles, from muscle bikes to e-bikes, and on electric scooters. Sandro Baglietto of the well – known Cellese store has noticed that the market for these vehicles has even tripled, with a preference for bicycles.

“Many ask us for the electronic invoice, not the simple receipt (to witness the exploitation of the bonus), but what it is possible to expect – confesses the shopkeeper – some difficulties with the reimbursement of the fee provided by the mobility bonus due to the possible ‘IT problems’ that could occur “.

These days, however, there is a increase in the purchase of bicycles also for children (excluded from the bonus) and for the whole family, thanks to the beautiful season that induces many people to spend many hours in the open air, combining fun with sports.

The mobility bonus has and will certainly have a positive and satisfactory effect on sales and on the entire soft mobility sector. To date, making an estimate we can say that the increase touches levels of 20-30% in our shopping center – comments manager Fabio Cordazzo of Ipercoop – But it is difficult today to give precise numbers on how much the mobility bonus can affect sales. Certainly, however, bicycles are the main target of our customers’ attention, in particular the traditional ‘walking’ ones. ”

On the downside is also found those who do not register in these days an increase in sales and requests: we are talking about some bicycle retail stores far from Savona, such as the Loano Cicli Anselmo bike store. The business owner explains to us: “Unfortunately, here the state bonus has not brought any kind of benefitIndeed, since it is reserved for municipalities with more than 50,000 inhabitants, it has happened that many customers have decided to buy the bikes from relatives or friends who live in the larger centers. So instead of helping us, this measure has ‘diverted’ customers by pushing them elsewhere. ”

“There is another aspect – Anselmo confesses – the government has launched this bonus to encourage sustainable mobility in metropolitan cities, but these means are not reconciled with the traffic of the major centerstherefore we already know that these bikes and scooters will be brought here to the Riviera and used in the summer “.

Finally, there is also who, like the Speed ​​Wheel bicycle shop in Savona, it is not yet able to quantify the increase in requests of two-wheeled vehicles, in particular after two months of closure due to the lockdown.

Ultimately, surely it can be said that, even just seeing the photos we took in the clearly empty ‘bicycle and scooters’ department of the Decathlon in Vado Ligure and the queue of people outside a well-known retail store, the mobility bonus can bring excellent results (short and long term) both for sustainability, for motor activity and the local economy.
