Aprilia set up shop in Noale after WWII, with founder Alberto Beggio’s company originally producing bicycles. The second generation Beggio, son Ivano, saw the introduction of motorized bikes in 1968 with small-displacement mopeds like the Colibri and Daniela. Aprilia currently manufactures high-performance street motorcycles including the supermoto Dorsoduro, Tuono streetfighter and RSV4 superbike, with the latter model enjoying wide success in the World Superbike series.
