5 Where are Ves­pas made?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Comment -

The fac­tory is at Pont­ed­era, near Pisa in North­ern Italy, and it’s more like a small town than a scooter fac­tory. Seven brands of twowheel­ers are made there, all owned by Pi­ag­gio. As well as Vespa, these in­clude Pi­ag­gio, Aprilia, Scarabeo, Derbi, Gil­era, and Moto Guzzi. In 2014 alone, Pont­ed­era churned out al­most half-a-mil­lion bikes and scoot­ers. The fa­cil­ity in­cludes a test track and even a di­rect rail­way link. All Ves­pas sold in the Euro­pean mar­ket are made at Pont­ed­era while mod­els for the Asian mar­ket are made in Viet­nam and the Bara­mati plant in In­dia.
