Motor scooters are commonly associated with just two manufacturers: Innocenti, who made the Lambretta, and Piaggio, who produced the Vespa. From the early 1950s these firms achieved worldwide sales that were the envy of most other motorcycle manufacturers.
The Lambretta and Vespa models provided better weather protection than any two-wheeled vehicle had before. The history of the motor scooter began much earlier, however, and this book traces the ancestry of the modern scooter from the unsuccessful pioneering days through its development as a light vehicle for troops during the Second World War. When the motor scooter became a success many other makers introduced models, some of innovative design but often diverging from the original concept of the scooter as a cheap, easily maintained utility machine. This book also lists some of the outstanding achievements and records of the scooter.
