New liveries take Piaggio style to a new level

Piaggio’s high-wheel scooters certainly know how to attract attention. Especially with the new mix of colours, with the S versions of the Liberty, Medley and Beverly in Blu Zaffiro, a sapphire-blue which pays homage to the dynamism that ensures they are always a step ahead. Then, there’s a sophisticated Nero Cosmo black to showcase the innate elegance of the Piaggio Beverly, the urban crossover that continues to lead the way in the segment.

Piaggio 1 Arrives: 100% Electric

Introducing the new generation of E-Scooters for urban mobility: quality, technology, reliability, and safety for the first time in one essential, easy, and lightweight electric scooter

The 1 version is equipped with a 1.4 kWh battery that weighs 22 lbs, whereas the 1+ and 1 Active versions use a higher capacity 2.3 kWh battery that weighs 33 lbs.
The 1 Active version stands out aesthetically from the other two with red decorations on the rear swingarm.

In the Mix colour schemes, the saddle has seating characterised by a grey covering that creates more of a contrast with the glossy black side inserts.
The colour schemes are available for all the versions.

The revolutionary nature of GITA and KILO

The Piaggio Group continue to shape the future of mobility with the creation of GITA and KILO, the first Piaggio Fast Forward products.

Introducing GITA and KILO, the first projects developed by Piaggio Fast Forward (PFF), a newly-established company overseen by Piaggio and based in the U.S. with a goal of pioneering the future of light mobility. Piaggio aims to explore the evolution of how the world gets around  by thinking about the future, expanding its vision to include a much broader range of  technological solutions compared to its current core business. 

The revolutionary nature of GITA and KILO is in their ability to provide support to people in the various activities that characterise their movements in everyday life, extending the limited operating range and carrying capacity of humans. They are, in fact, conceived as a true platform for mobility, which can be customised and integrated to meet different needs in multiple scenarios.

Michele Colaninno, President of PFF, explains: “To truly understand people and their habits to  meet their needs, this is what led us to create GITA.  We understood that we have to create  products  in  line  with  the  needs  of  tomorrow’s  humans, and we will do that through  humans. The  success story is made up of PFF people and teams, who are the living proof. They are young, enthusiastic, with no  fear of challenges,  a melting  pot  of cultures and professionalism  who together have created a perfect merging of robotics, engineering and design.”

Roberto Colaninno, Chairman and CEO of the Piaggio Group , declared: “The Piaggio Group,  through the creation of PFF, looks again to the future, to young people, to the future generations, and doesn’t want to merely be ready to face the challenges of this increasingly complex mobility scenario, but wants to be leading agent of this change. Innovation, research and curiosity are the basis of this project and are its main drivers.” 


GITA (which means “short trip” in Italian) is an intelligent autonomous vehicle designed to support humans. It can carry up to 18 kg and both observe and communicate. Reaching speeds of up to 35 km/hour it is able to follow a human operator and can also move autonomously in a mapped environment. 

KILO is the big brother of GITA and can transport up to 100 kg in its spacious 120-litre compartment.

The Piaggio Museum earns a place in the Tripadvisor Hall of Fame

In 2019, the world's biggest community of travellers once again recognises Italy's largest Motorcycle Museum. The Piaggio Museum in Pontedera, the largest motorcycle museum in Italy and one of the biggest in Europe, enters the TripAdvisor® Hall of Fame, obtaining the Certificate of Excellence for the fifth consecutive year, thanks to the high scores and very positive reviews provided by visitors.
 

The Museum has been consistently recognised by TripAdvisor® every year since 2015, thanks to its ability to win the hearts of the many guests, 700,000 of whom have visited Pontedera (in the province of Pisa) from all over the world since the museum opened. Having received this coveted award for the fifth consecutive year, the Piaggio Museum earns a place in the TripAdvisor® Hall of Fame. TripAdvisor® is the world's biggest travel platform, present on 49 markets and boasting approximately 490 million unique visitors per month with its network of sites.

The large exhibition spaces within the Museum, inaugurated in 2000 and significantly refurbished in 2018, extend across 5000 m2 and are located in former industrial warehouses that, elegantly restored, now house more than 250 historic vehicles. Vehicles that represent more than one hundred years of emotions, dreams and projects, all of which have accompanied the economic and social development of Italy.

The Vespa collection, one of the best-known and loved Italian brands, attracts fans from all over the world and is flanked by collections dedicated to the Piaggio and Ape brands and to the motorcycle and racing history of the Aprilia, Gilera and Moto Guzzi brands.

Names that have written key chapters in the history of the motorcycle and that, together, boast an extraordinary 104 world titles across the various motorcycle racing specialisms. From the heroic machines of 1909 (the year Gilera was founded) or of 1921 (the birth of Moto Guzzi), all the way to the extraordinary Aprilia bikes belonging to Valentino Rossi, Max Biaggi, Loris Capirossi, Manuel Poggiali, all World Championship winners.

Alongside these valuable pieces, some unique and unrepeatable, is the entire history of mobility – from trains to planes, from cable ways to marine motors – covered by a company that is part of Italian history.
