Just a quick note regarding the smaller spot. A few dealerships here in sunny So-Cal feature small, if not tiny but well appointed showrooms, with off-site (read cheaper...) warehousing and/or service.

Just throwing it out there, you sound like you know what your doing but as a start-up looking at the winter season ahead, less may be more location-wise.

And of course as a realtor you already know location, location, location.

Point being, does the entirety of the operation need to be under one roof? At least initially?

Good luck chasing your dream!
I definitely know scooter shops that try to keep one or two examples of each bike on the showroom, and the rest in a warehouse. Very common, very smart.

Genuine sells great scooters and they are very well-established - hell, for many years before operating Genuine, they were Scooterworks, the country's biggest vintage Vespa parts seller.
