AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (26 February) – In 2000, total sales of Dutch mopeds and scooters in the 50cc class saw a decrease of 13.3% from the previous year. A possible saturation in the market is likely to blame, as every year previous to this, saw at least a moderate increase. The biggest drop was in the 45 km/h category which recorded sales 17.6% lower than the previous year, while the 25 km/h category only dropped by 2.7%. Sales in the 45 km/h category were 44,940 units in 2000, down from a record high in 1999 of 54,551. Mopeds and scooters in the 25 Km/h category faired only a little less worse.
