Until now, two-wheeled vehicles remain one of the modes of transportation chosen by modern urban society. And the scooter, which is also one of the two-wheeled vehicles, remains a belle that has loyal fans. So it is not surprising that Vespa, the famous Piaggio's scooter brand, can still exist and be successful in the global automotive market.

Not to mention other modern scooter brands from Lambretta, Peugeot was then followed by Japanese manufacturers up to Chinese. This indicates that the global scooter market still has its own segments that still promises abundant profit coffers.

Apart from the lucrative promises of the global scooter market which then attracted the interest of many well-known manufacturers, it turns out there are still small and start-up manufacturers who are also interested to compete in the competition. And one of them is PiperMoto, a British company founded by John Piper in 2013 specializing in motorcycle and scooter projects.
