At the start of 2022, the Piaggio Group confirmed and consolidated its leadership in Europe in the scooter segment. With a share of 23.5 per cent, Piaggio group further reinforced its position in the North American scooter market, reaching a share of 34.9 per cent. The scooter sector increased to double digits in global sales, mainly driven particularly by the Vespa brand. This recorded a turnover rising to double digits and the record sales volume for the period, and by the Aprilia brand scooters.

The motorcycle segment was also extremely positive as both Aprilia and Moto Guzzi filed record sales in the year’s first nine months. All of this with the highest-ever volumes and profits.

It is a window that opens toward tomorrow and paves the way for Aprilia’s future aspirations.

The ELECTRICa project is this new concept – a lightweight, zero-emissions bike with a fun and satisfying ride. This will provide maximum freedom and riding pleasure even for use in the cities of the future. Therefore, the fun and freedom factor of riding will always be the cardinal principle at the base of all vehicles built by Aprilia.

The look is unmistakably Aprilia, especially during the time when a modern interpretation of the triple headlamp cluster typical of all Aprilias stands out to favour stark and clearly sporty lines. Compact dimensions and low saddle height guarantee accessibility. Furthermore, also by the lightweight and the presence of both brake controls on the handlebar a choice that makes the transition from scooters much easier.
