Aprilia Motorcycles

Aprilia was founded after the Second World War by Cavaliere Alberto Beggio, as a bicycle production factory at Noale, Italy in the province of Venice.
Alberto’s son, Ivano Beggio, took over the helm of the company in 1968 and he constructed a 50 cc “motorcycle” with a dozen or so collaborators. The first production Aprilia mopeds were named Colibrì, Daniela and Packi.

On 15 August 2010, Aprilia became the most successful motorcycle racing brand in history, surpassing fellow Italian MV Agusta with a record 276th victory.
