Three months worth of data may not paint the most complete picture, but looking at the year over year data, Azione offered a fair warning to its dealer members during the opening general session of its spring event here in Bonita Springs, Florida. During the first three months of the year, the group is tracking 2.5 percent below where it was during the first three months of 2018. To be fair, Azione dealers are coming off of an impressive 2018, in which they showed year-over-year growth in 11 of 12 months and finished the year up 14.63 percent over 2017.
So, for what it’s worth, they may be experiencing some leveling out of sales.
Still, the short trend here is one that Azione Unlimited founder and president Richard Glikes has foreshadowed for some time now—that this period of prosperity would at some point start to regress.
