Aprilia was founded after the Second World War by Alberto Beggio, as a bicycle production factory at Noale, Italy in the province of Venice. Alberto’s son, Ivano Beggio, took over the helm of the company in 1968 and constructed a 50 cc "motorcycle" with a dozen or so collaborators. The first production Aprilia mopeds were named Colibrì, Daniela and Packi. Later they produced motocross bikes, enduro and racing bikes as well as road bikes including 1000cc "superbike". In 1995, Aprilia commissioned Philippe Starck to design the Motò Aprilla which was shown in New York’s Modern Art Museum.
