Vespa Elettra, an elettro design for a classic soul by MA-DE STUDIO

Recently, the trend of electrification in the two-wheeler segment has also begun to develop rapidly, marked by an unprecedented boom in popularity, especially in recent years. Various well-known motorcycle manufacturers have started to introduce and even sell electricity-based products.

But the sophistication of an electric motorbike has not been able to shake the tastes of classic motorcycle lovers who remain faithful in choosing conventional classic motorbikes, and this also includes classic Vespa scooter fans who can be said to be one of the largest fan communities in the world.

As we all know, Vespa is the most iconic Italian scooter brand in the world. But to be more specific, we are talking about the Piaggio's Vespa model which was patented almost 75 years ago, to be precise April 1946. Until now, Vespa scooters have had a fantastic total sales figure, reaching 18 million units worldwide. So it is not surprising that Vespa has many loyal fans around the world
.

In the context of the electrification trend of motorized vehicles, it has also begun to touch the scooter sector, particularly Vespa scooters. Piaggio, as the manufacturer that holds the Vespa brand, has also tried to follow this trend. There are several models of electric scooters that this manufacturer has tried, namely the Vespa Elettrica which was introduced to the public for the first time in 2016.

However, the foregoing does not reduce the interest of third parties outside the Italian giant scooter maker to try to come up with creative ideas in the form of electric vehicles which are design inspired by the Piaggio's classic scooter.

Here's MA-DE STUDIO is answered the above questions in their latest project. "This project is not an official Vespa assignment, but something we created because of our love for this iconic Italian Vespa brand," said Andrea Della Vecchia, founder of MA-DE Studio Design, as quoted of Autoevolution.

MA-DE Design Studio itself is an international design studio based in Cuomo, Italy, so it makes perfect sense that they involve Vespa models in this serious project. As a form of support for the scooter, the pride of the Italian state.

The electric-powered scooter named Vespa Elettra, to be elettro design for a classic soul, is designed very attractive and inspired by the classic Vespa scooter, which is also known as the Vespa which is transformed into an electric scooter without losing its classic identities and souls. 

Everything looks harmonious together, starting from the classic handlebar on which there's a sophisticated dashboard and equipped with a touch screen with high technology. Then as the drivetrain, the scooter uses an electric motors that is capable of producing 9.38 horsepower with 240 Nm of torque, so that it can make it go at a maximum speed of up to 95 kph.
It armed with a 5.6 kWh battery, so the electric-powered Vespa Elettra scooter can cover a distance of 150 km for a single battery charge, far above the word that is enough to be used everyday around the city with this eccentric-style scooter.

But what is also no less cool than this 'classic' with the latest technology is the Bluetooth connectivity feature to be paired with a special application, which becomes an authentication key and a virtual dashboard for relevant travel settings and data.

“I really believe in the movement towards electric mobility. It's only a matter of time, not only for cars but also for scooters and other small vehicles as mobility vehicles in urban areas,” concluded Della Vecchia.

In fact, this is not the first time a third party has come up with a creative idea in the form of an electric-powered scooter concept inspired by classic Vespa scooters, such as the Vespampère electric scooter concept by Giulio Iacchetti, the Vespa 98e Concept by Mightyseed Designs, which was present some time ago.

And here's the soundless Piaggio Vespa Elettrica video, while passing through your heart.😀

Check out the ferocious Bimota Tesi H2 motorbike

The world's automotive enthusiasts, especially for those who like two-wheeled vehicles, aka motorbikes, are sure to know this Italian brand called Bimota. This is a brand owned by Bimota S.A. one of the premium motorcycle manufacturers headquartered in Rimini, Italy. This company founded by Massimo Tamburini, Giuseppe Morri, and Valerio Bianchi in 1973.
Bimota Tesi H2 built based on the Kawasaki Ninja H2 superbike, but still maintains the Bimota's steering-hub center system which is integrated with steering and suspension functions. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3rUCiHO)
During its journey, this company had ups and downs in its business activities before finally being declared bankrupt in 2017. However, it able to bounce back after Kawasaki acquired it with a share purchase of 49.9 percent in October 2019, and then changed the name to Bimota S.p.A.

In the past, if this Italian manufacturer wants to build the motorbikes always using machines from other manufacturers, ranging from Honda to Ducati. And now, in just a matter of weeks since the acquisition process ended, the joint venture is moving fast by showing its latest innovation called the Bimota Tesi H2, it's a new high-tech motorcycle in collaboration between both the Italian-Japs companies.
Bimota Tesi H2 had debuted at the 2019 EICMA in Milan and sold since June 2020 at a price tag of €64,000 (approx Rp.1.1 billion). (Picture from: https://bit.ly/35dDigu)
The Bimota Tesi H2 built based on the Kawasaki Ninja H2 superbike, but still maintains the Bimota's styles. At a glance, the motorcycle body has a similar appearance to the Kawasaki H2 superbike with the sharp lines were drawn all over his body and visually, the most striking ones namely the use of wide winglets on both sides of its fairing.

And behind its aggressive appearance, there are analog and digital patterned instrument panels. The analog part is on the left side with a manually needle pointer to find out only engine speed. The rest is presented through a series of digital meter panels to display information such as speed, fuel, oil or a guide to adjusting the suspension.
Bimota Tesi H2 uses a 998 cc, DOHC, supercharged, 4 cylinder, liquid-cooled engine and is claimed to be capable of spraying power up to 231 hp at 11,500 rpm, or 242 hp at 11,500 rpm when coupled with Ram Air, and a maximum torque of 141 Nm at 11,000 rpm. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2XaO0zH)
Furthermore, the motorcycle has almost the same dimensions as the Kawasaki H2 supercharged motorcycle with the length of 2,074 mm, 770 mm width and 1,155 mm height. Then it has a wheelbase reaches 1,455 mm, ground clearance 140 mm and seat height 840 mm. 

The Bimota Tesi H2 itself has a dry weight of 207 kg or lighter than the Kawasaki Ninja H2, due to the Bimota sport motorcycle uses carbon fiber in the subframe. Meanwhile, the mainframe and swingarm use lightweight aluminum. This Bimota-built sports motorcycle was first exhibited at the 2019 EICMA event in Milan, Italy. At that time, the appearance of the advanced motorcycle had made those event visitors amazed.

How could be, the Bimota latest motorcycle displays various features with unique specifications, such an unusual front suspension called a steering-hub center system which is integrated with steering and suspension functions similar to those of the 1990s Bimota Tesi bikes. Besides that, a motorcycle Also equipped with an electronic damper, as well as a preload setting on the back. 

Meanwhile, the rear swingarm is the same as motorbikes in general, but with a stronger foundation, due to the combination of Ohlins-made double subtank. Even though it looks solid, those configurations are claimed to have an advantage when there is hard braking and also makes the motorbike more agile.
Bimota Tesi H2 is a motorcycle legally used on the road, due to everything needed to homologate for the public road use has been pinned on it, such as turn signals, rearview mirrors, and exhaust emissions. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3oijkbD)
Then for the drivetrain, this Italian manufacturer clearly reveals the mechanical heart of its latest motorcycle, which is a 998 cc, DOHC, supercharged, 4 cylinder, liquid-cooled engine. As for the bore and stroke sizes are the same as the Kawasaki H2, namely 76 x 55 mm, but the compression ratio is similar to the H2R ie 8.5 : 1.

The machine mentioned above is claimed to be capable of spraying power up to 231 hp at 11,500 rpm, or 242 hp at 11,500 rpm when coupled with Ram Air, and a maximum torque of 141 Nm at 11,000 rpm. Unlike the Kawasaki H2R which is not able to use on the public road, the Bimota Tesi H2 is the opposite, because everything needed to homologate for the public road use has been pinned on it, such as turn signals, rearview mirrors, and exhaust emissions.
And finally, after going through a year-long production period and being built in a limited number of only 250 units, finally the motorbike that was touted as the twin of the Kawasaki H2 began to be distributed to its enthusiasts since October 2020 at a price tag of €64,000 (approx Rp.1.1 billion). Wow....

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops...... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | BIKEEXIF ]

Here's one of the Austrian's reliable scooters

As all we know, the scooter's hey-day was occurred in the 1950s to 1960s throughout the world. This also happens in Austria, as one of the centers of the automotive industry in Europe, although not as big as its neighbor Germany.
Puch RL 125 uses a 2-stroke 125cc engine and was mated to a 3-speed manual transmission system was shifted from the left twistgrip. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/356wG3g)
A while ago we ever discussed before several Austrian scooter brands, such as Colibri from Josef Walter & Co or scooters made by KTM starting from Mirabel, Mecky to Pony. Then there are the scooters designed by Otto Kauba which are also made into several brands from this country.
Puch RL 125 was also known for their moderate performance, with a top speed of around 45 mph. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/356wG3g)
It turns out that there is another big name in the automotive world from Austria, namely Puch. For true automotive enthusiasts, you must be familiar with this brand which was quite famous in the 1950s to the 1960s. Well this time we will discuss the figure of a unique scooter which also comes from the Austrian manufacturer.

Puch Motorcycles is one of the oldest manufacturers in Europe, founded in 1891 in Graz, Austria, when Johann Puch & Comp was originally dedicated to bicycle production. As time goes by, besides bicycles, this manufacturer also produces cars, mopeds, scooters, motorbikes and machinery.
The company built their first motorcycle in 1903, and by 1912, the year company founder Johann Puch retired, the factory produced more than 300 motorbikes and cars every year, along with about 16,000 bicycles.
 
After World War II, they built two-stroke off-road and road bikes with 125, 175, and 250cc engines, as well as various scooters and mopeds with smaller engines. It is also known that Puch's machines are widely used by various brands of motorbikes and scooters and some of them are marketed in the United States by Sears Roebuck as Allstate engines.
Puch SR 150 uses a 2-stroke 150cc engine and was mated to a 3-speed manual transmission system. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3ocGH6C)
Next to the scooters, this Austrian brand has also ever produced scooters in the 1950s to 1960s, with several models being born from the production line at its factory located in Graz. Until the end of the 1950s, this Austrian manufacturer saw strong sales due to the European public high interest to scooters.

The Puch's scooters have developed a reputation for reliability and are popular for everyday commuting, providing good weather protection and ease of use. Its first scooter model was known as the Puch RL 125 which had a 2-stroke 125cc engine and was mated to a 3-speed manual transmission system was shifted from the left twistgrip. According to some sources, the Puch scooter model bodywork elements were developed in collaboration with the Lambretta maker, although they are not intended for sports use.
Puch SR 150 was delivering better performance of 6 hp rather than 5 hp but retaining three-speeds gearbox. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3ocGH6C)
The Puch's first model scooters went into production in 1951 and were also known for their moderate performance, with a top speed of around 45 mph, was not a problem. The next Puch SR 150 'Alpine' model has a 150cc engine and foot-operation, delivering better performance of 6 hp rather than 5 hp but retaining three-speeds gearbox.
In 1987, the motorcycle division of this brand became part of Piaggio Group and still produces bikes under the name Puch. When the bicycle division of Piaggio, which also included Bianchi Bicycles was sold to the Swedish Grimaldi Industri group in 1997, Puch became part of Cycleurope. In 2011, Austrian entrepreneur Josef Faber took control of the brand, with the 2012 line of bicycles manufactured by Cycleurope in France.

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

Suzuki Nuda, the all-wheels drive motorcycle

Happy New Year 2021. When talking about the drive system in motorized vehicles, in general, it will be connected with four-wheeled motorized vehicles that are familiar with the terms FWD (2x4) and AWD (4x4) drive systems. 

But, We're thought the term are rare. Not because it isn't applied those kind of systems. Maybe just not really important to discuss it, due to the most motorbikes today apply rear-wheel drive systems.😀 
Suzuki Nuda made by Suzuki in 1986 and had applied an all wheel drive system by transferring power through an axle. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2WKgpwj)
Then what about a motorcycle with the front wheel drive system? Of course you still remember the Megola and Friedenstaube Motorrad, two German's pre-war era classic motorbikes whose had applied the front-wheel drive system. 

Next, you may ask, is there a motorcycle that applies a drive system to all its wheels (2x2)? Yes, there's existed and is made by Suzuki, the Japanese manufacturer in 1986, named Suzuki Nuda. Well, when you look at it, its looks like a future motorcycle, when you remember that the Nuda is more than 30 years old, he was first exhibited to the public at the 1986 Tokyo Motor Show.
Suzuki Nuda concept motorcycle uses the DOHC in-line four engine of Suzuki GSX-R750, which is claimed to be able to run and speeds up to a top speed of 273.5 kph. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/38AYVIf)
At that time, the motorcycle concept was look too futuristic, both technologically and in terms of the shape it carried. Just look at the pull of the rounded and flowing body lines for aerodynamic reasons that were rare in the 1980s.

Yes, this concept motorcycle was built long before this manufacturer launched another motorcycle concept called the Suzuki Biplane back in 2007. So far, it is not known whether there is a relationship between these two Suzuki-made concept motorbikes.
Suzuki Biplane was revealed at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show and is a concept motorbike inspired by Biplanes. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3aIbkNh)
Furthermore, Suzuki Nuda reflects the style of today's sports motorbikes, just look at the front-fairing. Where at that time the fairing motorcycle lights were still rounded or square, Nuda was already wearing a slanted-eye model. Then on the monocoque rear seat, it is covered by typical of today's premium vehicle materials such as suede leather. 

What should not be forgotten is the both part of the legs that use a single swing arm model. Well, on the front legs do not use telescopic forks or single swing arm models, that's like the one on the Bimota Tesi H2, an Italian sports motorcycle.
Suzuki Nuda concept motorcycle while on display at the 1986 London Bike Show. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/38AYVIf)
But that's not enough, it's even crazier for a motorcycle to use an all wheel drive system by transferring power through an axle. This means that the two wheels will rotate together following the engine speed which is channeled through a double axle drive system like that of a 4x4 car. Then for the turning maneuvers, Suzuki installed a hub steering wheel system, where the movement of the handlebars is connected to the drum mounted on the front wheel.
The Suzuki Nuda is not intended to be mass produced and only made as a concept motorcycle or showcased motorcycle. Even so, this motorbike can actually be taken rode on the road, because it uses the DOHC in-line four engine of Suzuki GSX-R750, which is claimed to be able to run and speeds up to a top speed of 273.5 kph.

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops..... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | BIKEEXIF ]

The Piaggio Ape three-wheeler ever had made as a gift for MotoGP superstars

Piaggio Ape is a three-wheeled vehicle produced by the Piaggio Group. But its appearance is often mistaken for a Bajaj (a type of vehicle made by Indian companies that are widely circulating in Indonesia), and it was even rumored to be a special gift for Valentino Rossi. Then how did the story began?
Piaggio Ape Classic is a versatile commercial three-wheeled vehicle available in Van and Deck form. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3pjjOi1)
As news was widely heard at the beginning of 2020 (to be precise in April 2020), when the MotoGP superstar Valentino Rossi was confirmed to no longer be part of Monster Energy Yamaha in the 2021 racing season, and joined the Petronas Yamaha SRT team. Even so, the Aprilia MotoGP team paddock is still murmuring about the chance of Valentino Rossi's return to Aprilia
.
Valentino Rossi is officially joined the Petronas Yamaha SRT team for the 2021 racing season. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3aFRm5A)
Of course, you already know that Aprilia is one of the brands under the Piaggio Group. And before entering the world of MotoGP racing, it turned out that the racing maestro had been a part of the Aprilia team, where in his first two years while racing in the GP125 and GP250 classes, Valentino Rossi wore the Aprilia team racing uniform, and had won the world's champion titles in each classes in 1997 and 1999.

Along with that, Romano Albesiano, the technical manager of the Aprilia Gresini Racing team on the 2020 MotoGP, admitted that he would be honored if the famous racer Valentino Rossi would join his team. Not only that, Romano also had time to offer him an Ape Car with the Aprilia Gresini Racing team livery.
Romano Albesiano, the technical manager of the Aprilia Gresini Racing team on the 2020 MotoGP. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/37CwR82)
"We will be very honored and enthusiastic if he wants to race with us, but the possibility is very small," said Albesiano quoted from GPOne.com
.
Reportedly, Valentino Rossi was very fond of using a Piaggio Ape Car and the Aprilia's technical manager would give him a special one under the Aprilia Gresini Racing team livery if he willing to join the team next year. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3mJLdI6)
"Rossi was very fond of using a Piaggio Ape Car, we can make it a version of the Aprilia racing team," he added.

Back to the Piaggio Ape, actually the shape of the three-wheeled vehicle is well known world wide. The Piaggio Ape three-wheeled vehicle is made as a multipurpose vehicle that can be used as a vehicle for transporting passengers to goods.

As reported by Piaggiocommercialvehicles.com, the Piaggio Ape was produced from 1948 to 2016, and it was designed by Corradino D'Ascanio as a cheap and efficient conveyance. Piaggio deliberately designed commercial vehicles that were cheap, small and could transport large quantities of goods to rebuild post-war Italy
The Piaggio Ape Calessino is made for the passenger transport vehicle. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/38pp4tv)
In general, this three-wheeled vehicle made by Piaggio uses a 2-stroke engine which is similar to that of a Vespa scooter and can carry loads of 200-800 kg depending on the variant. And during its production period, this three-wheeled vehicle comes in three versions, namely the Ape 50 and Ape Classic for the pickup model, and the Ape Calessino for the passenger transport model

Especially for the Piaggio Ape 50 model because it carries a 2-stroke engine with a capacity of 50 cc with a fairly small size. While the Ape Classic carries a 4-stroke 435cc engine. Finally, the Ape Calessino comes with an engine variant with a capacity of 197cc and some even now use the electric motor.

Then, is Valentino Rossi willing to return to the Aprilia team? We will wait for futher news. For a while, maybe you are interested in seeing a similar three-wheeled vehicle made by Ducati or seeing the Ape Car racing and drifting below.
That's it, and if the article above is still considered inadequate or inaccurate, or if you have additional information related to the Piaggio Ape three-wheeled vehicles, please don't hesitate to let us know via the comments column below this article.

The story of the Triumph's scooters (both TMC and TWN)

So far, many people thought that the Triumph motorcycle brand came from the UK. But did you know that the brand actually also has German's sibling? What's more, did you know also that Triumph has also ever produced several beautiful scooter models?
The TWN Contessa 200cc scooters were produced from 1955 to 1958 and uses a 197 cc 'split single' 2-stroke engine coupled with a 4-speed gearbox. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3nrlzsF)
As quoted from Wikipedia, the company was originally founded by one of German expatriates in the United Kingdom named Siegfried Bettmann as a bicycle factory called the Triumph Cycle Company in Coventry, England in 1886.

A year later the company was registered under the name New Triumph Co. Ltd., with funding from the Dunlop Pneumatic Tire Company. In the same year, Triumph turned into a manufacturing company after Bettmann partnered with Johann Moritz Schulte. And in 1888, Bettmann purchased a site in Coventry using his lent money from the Schulte family.
The TWN Contessa 200cc scooters were also equipped with an electric starter. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3nqjzkw)
The company started producing the first Triumph-branded bicycle in 1889. And a decade later in 1896, Triumph started its German's subsidiary named Triumph Werke Nürnberg AG (TWN) to manufacture bicycles in Bettmann's hometown of Nürnberg, Germany.

Since 1890 the company diversified into manufacturing motorbikes at its Much Park Street's factory. As the results, the first Triumph motorcycle was rolled out of its Coventry's factory in 1902. It was a usual bike powered by a 2.25 bhp Minerva engine. A year later in 1903, its Nürnberg's factory was also carried out its motorcycle production.
The TWN Tessy Luxus 125cc scooters scooters were produced from 1956 to 1958 and uses a 125 cc 'split single' 2-stroke engine. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2KsXFP4)
Despite the turmoil of the Great War, the German factory maintained its good relationship with its British sibling and built motorcycles by using the same engines as, and otherwise very similar to the British bikes.
The TWN Tessy Luxus 125cc scooters scooters were produced from 1956 to 1958 and uses a 125 cc 'split single' 2-stroke engine. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2KsXFP4)
In 1913, the British and German factories diverged, after the German economic and political climate forced the company to use of fellow German manufacturers' products. This led to change to the components pinned in the German's factory subsequent motorcycle model by using the MAG and Sachs engines.

At the time, several German's Triumph models with 248 cc and 269 cc two-stroke engines, and being given the badge as Orial, but after they got the complaints from the French company of the same name in 1920s, so then the company decided independently to given its products the TWN (Triumph Werke Nürnberg) badges.
The TWN Tessy Super 150cc scooters scooters were produced from 1956 to 1958 and uses a 150 cc 'split single' 2-stroke engine. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2WnHKV6)
In the 1930s an engineer they had hired away from its rival NSU named Otto Reitz managed to design a single cylinder 200cc two stroke engine along the lines of the Puch "Twingle", with the two pistons sharing a forked conrod. Later, it was developed in 250cc and 350cc versions which were used in military machines during preparations for the coming war.

From 1939 to 1945 there was a second World War, which made almost all of Europe and the world feel how bad it was. In that time, Nürnberg was badly damaged in the latter years of the war, and the TWN factory also suffering extensively. Shortly after the war ended, by 1948 production had resumed. It is also known that during the 1950s, this German manufacturer had produced several scooter models, as follows;
  1. TWN Contessa, a beautiful premium scooter that is armed with a 197 cc 'split single' 2-stroke engine (a type of engine that has been developed by TWN since the 1930s) which is capable of producing around 10hp of power, combined with a 4-speed gearbox with a top speed of around 60mph, uses two 10 inch wheels. Besides that, the TWN Contessa scooter was also equipped with an electric starter and was produced from 1955 to 1958.
  2. TWN Tessy Luxus, a scooter produced by this German manufacturer from 1956 to 1958 by using a 125cc 2-stroke engine capable of producing around 7.5hp of power which can carry the scooter to run up to a top speed of 50mph.
  3. TWN Tessy Super, a scooter produced by the TWN manufacturer from 1956 to 1958 by using a 150cc 2-stroke engine which is capable of producing about 8.5hp of power which can carry the scooter to run up to a top speed of 50mph.
Finally, the company merged with Adler motorcycle and typewriter business after Max Grundig took over in 1958 and the German-built Triumph motorcycles ceased production. However, the mopeds production is still being carried out, it is likely that's the Triumph's rebadged and marketed as Hercules during this period by using Sachs engines.
The Triumph Tigress 250cc scooters scooters were produced from 1958 and uses a 250 cc twin-cylinder, four-stroke overhead-valve engine. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3mmSgpT)
Meanwhile, the British Triumph or Triumph Motor Company is known to have made a scooter model known as the Triumph Tigress. The scooter is built on a design concept created by Edward Turner. And as a result, TMC introduced the Triumph Tigress in 1958 as a scooter that carried a 4 stroke-twin engine with a 250cc capacity that was able to deliver about 10 horsepower, so that it was able to make this scooter run fast to a maximum speed of around 70 mph while making it a the fastest scooter at the time.
The Triumph Tigress 175cc scooters scooters were produced from 1958 and uses a 175 cc single cylinder, two-stroke engine. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3r666kg)
During its development, TMC also produced the 175cc Tigress Scooter which was armed with an air-cooled single cylinder 2-stroke engine. Inevitably, the Tigress became a scooter that was loved by the public at that time, besides being economical, it was also comfortable to drive because of its excellent handling, acceleration and braking.

However, behind the Tigress perfection, there were major obstacles that caused this scooter to be less attractive due to expensive maintenance and spare parts. That's a classic problem faced by British automotive manufacturers. Besides being known as the Triumph Tigress scooter, this scooter also has another name, namely, BSA Sunbeam, because in the 1960s some of TMC's shares were bought by BSA.
The Triumph Tina/T10 100cc scooters scooters were produced from 1962 to 1970 and uses a 100 cc single cylinder, two-stroke engine. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/34g0cmP)
Besides the Tigress, the TMC manufacturer also had a chance to produce a tiny scooter called the Triumph Tina, a small-sized, low-performance scooter with a 100 cc two-stroke engine coupled with the automatic transmission system and a handlebar carrying basket. This Triumph tiny scooter model was produced starting from 1962 and stopped in 1970, having previously changed to the Triumph T10 in 1965.
This scooter had caused quite fierce differences of opinion among the TMC's internal decision makers, because it intended to be marketed specifically only for women. Some internal circles who oppose the its production and existency think that the scooter is very contrary to the identity of Triumph, which has been known as the big-engined motorcycle and is very synonymous with masculinity. It was not know, how many Tina scooters has produced by the British manufacturer.

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