Known for its passion in everything automotive, Italy is no different when it comes to motorcycles. Boasting a 130 year history in Italian industry and mobility, the Piaggio Group is the largest European manufacturer of two-wheel motor vehicles and one of the world leaders in its sector. Established in 1884, the Piaggio Group product range includes scooters, motorcycles and mopeds from 50 to 1,400 cc. In addition to Piaggio and its newly introduced range of three-wheeled scooters, Alfardan Motors will also sell the Vespa and Aprilia range of scooter and motorcycles here in Oman.
In 1946 Piaggio launched the iconic Vespa scooter which is Italian for “wasp” – and within ten years over a million units had been produced. The Italian language gained a new word, “vespare”, meaning to go somewhere on a Vespa. Perfect for anyone with an appreciation for beauty and a desire for a distinctive lifestyle; Vespa offers scooters with both performance and timeless designs that are a reflection of its extraordinary historic and iconographic wealth.
Founded in 1945, Aprilia is the performance and technological signpost of the Piaggio Group in the motorcycle segment. Aprilia started as a scooter manufacturer, but has today come to be known for its race-winning superbikes; namely its flagship – the 1,000 cc V-twin Superbike, as well as the RSV Mille and latest V4-based RSV4. Aprilia has always been a point of reference in the racing world and will no doubt make its mark as a performance giant in the Sultanate.
