Piaggio is the company based in Italy known for producing some of the best scooters and motorcycles in the world. This is also the parent company of the Moto Guzzi for sale in the UK and a number of other brands. Recently, Piaggio decided to launch their scooter museum knowing the role the brand has played in the motorcycle industry. Their models are usually seen in luxury vintage motor shows and stands in the same line as antique cars from Porsche and Ferrari.
Looking back, the people of San Francisco love the Vespa brand which is evident in the number of residents who own one. Maybe this is the same reason why Piaggio Group decided to open a museum. The company is responsible for other motorcycle brands as well including Moto Guzzi, Vespa, Aprilia and Gilera. Not to mention other brands that did not gain as much attention internationally. The museum project by Piaggio Group was done in its hometown which is Italy.
The facility has a total land area of 5,400 square feet and there are more than 250 exhibits available covering all motorcycle types based on era, class and the genre of the models. These products are not just made possible by Piaggio but also thanks to their subsidiaries which trusted the parent company which has been around the industry for more than 100 years. According to the company, around 10,000 people came to check out the scooter museum on its first opening weekend.
There are many exhibitions present in the new location which features the history of the parent company in terms of scooters, road racing, effort machines utilized during the war and those that are used in off-road competitions. New features were added because of the opening of the museum like the latest display for race bike and another exhibit which is all about the legendary Ape model by the company. The model is currently celebrating its 70th year.
Over time, the company has grown so much and its subsidiaries continue to flourish. Many of their brands are sold overseas and enthusiasts can now find Moto Guzzi for sale in the UK which is good news as they will be able to enjoy these legendary machines and be part of its history.
