Contemporary retro styling through to practical simplicity

A LITTLE ITALIAN INSPIRATION GOES A LONG WAY

A true Italian legend the APE, fondly referred to as a demon on three wheels. Originated by The Piaggio Company in Italy the APE, meaning bee. Its combination of simple functionality and economy appeals to many markets. A combination of ultimate economy with a payload up to 800kg and seating for one or two, this little busy bee has proven to be most popular across many sectors. From being an integral part of any business including retail, advertising, outdoor events and deliveries to racing at Rye House in Hertfordshire.

There are many practical benefits to the APE but the main point, as always with iconic designs, is just that you want one!.
