2 Rare Switzerland scooters

The development of the motorized vehicle industry, especially scooters after World War 2 ended, has contributed significantly to the growth of the economy and industry which was destroyed when the war broke out. At its peak, the growth of the scooter manufacturing industry also experienced a heyday around the 1950s to the 1960s.

It can be seen by the number of companies that make scooters (especially in mainland Europe). Maybe they were inspired by the success of two scooter manufacturers from Italy, Piaggio, and Innocenti. No exception to the manufacturers from Switzerland. Well, maybe not many people know that from this beautiful country, have been born ever unique scooters. Let's see two of them as follow;

1. Mako Scooter
As usual, when surfing in cyberspace we came across a picture of this scooter. The figure of the scooter at first glance looks like a Lambretta LC scooter and it turns out that the scooter is not one of the models made by the Italian manufacturer, Innocenti.

After several attempts to dig up information about this scooter, it turned out that very little was obtained, namely 2 pictures of the scooter without any additional information. In fact, the Mako 125 scooter brand was made in a limited number by a manufacturer from Switzerland in the 1950s (around 1953 to 1955). But unfortunately, there is no data that explains the name of the manufacturer from Switzerland.😭

The obvious design difference between the Mako and Lambretta LC models is on the front. Where the Mako scooter model looks to use an exposed double shock absorber system with springs, while the Lambretta LC model with the telescopic suspension system. Furthermore, this Mako unique scooter uses a 125cc 2-stroke JLO engine. At that time the machine was known to be reliable, supported by the availability of adequate spare parts by the German machinery manufacturer.

Besides it is not known how many scooters were made at that time and whether the manufacture of these scooters was done under license or at least with the authorization of the Italian manufacturer, Innocenti, who is known to be the Lambretta scooter brand owner if the Mako is modified based on the Lambretta LC model. What do you think?

2. Mowag Vroller
Besides the Mako scooter above, it turns out that there is another scooter made by a Swiss manufacturer in 1958 called the Mowag Vroller. However, there is not much information that can describe it in detail.

This unique scooter is said to be made by Mowag GmbH, a military vehicle manufacturer from the mentioned country (since April 2010, the name of this company has been changed to General Dynamics European Land Systems - Mowag GmbH). It seems this scooter only made in a limited number.

That's it, and if the article above is still considered inadequate or inaccurate, or if you have additional information related to the unique scooter models, please don't hesitate to let us know via the comments column below this article.
