Alright I quick-crunched the numbers in a moment of boredom:
Searched performance (since that's where the real "year of" action is - if people aren't building em, does it count?) for keywords for the past year.
I also double checked some other possibles, like e50 and za50 in addition to puch (but only counted exclusive terms, whichever was higher, "puch" or "e50" + "za50", to avoid double counting). Only really made a difference for motobecane (everyone says "moby") and minarelli, (more people just said "v1")
here's the numbers. Fa50 is drastically overrated because brent sax, but people were clearly talking about it so I let em count.
Unsurprisingly it's the year of the puch. again. close follow with tomos and hobbits.
It's also the year we talked a lot about bullshit exaggerated FA50 pipe dreams, and a surprising amount of expresses (all variety, including urbans and SR's) but I would say that's probably more vespa talk than usual. not enough to beat the big boys tho.
(and for comparison "scootertrash" 852)
