Piaggio are one of the longest established scooter manufacturers in the world…No manufacturer builds Scooters and small bikes with such flare, passion and styling.
In 1944, Piaggio engineers Renzo Spolti and Vittorio Casini designed a motorcycle with bodywork fully enclosing the engine, handlebar-mounted controls and small diameter wheels. Officially known "Moto Piaggio no. 5" nicknamed ‘duckling’ or ‘Paperino’ in Italian. The following year the ‘‘MP6 prototype’’ was created, upon seeing the ‘MP6’ for the first time Enrico Piaggio exclaimed: "Sembra una vespa!" ("It resembles a wasp!") Piaggio effectively named his new scooter on the spot!
From that day Piaggio have continued to manufacture the world most innovative and stylish scooters and small bikes, dominating the market. Today you can see the full range of Piaggio, Vespa, Derbi and Gilera scooters and bikes at Blade Motorcycles in Swindon.
