Cuando muchos se sorprenden del boom actual del mercado del scooter y de la variedad de modelos, deberían echarle un vistazo a este libro. Descubrirían que el fenómeno del scooter, lejos de ser actual, tuvo ya su gran momento en los años cincuenta, con prácticamente la misma variedad - o más - de formas, modelos, marcas, técnicas e innovaciones. Todo está ya inventado: el scooter "grande" con arranque eléctrico y motores de 4 tiempos no es cosa de ahora... Ya existía hace 40 años. Todo ello y mucho más lo descubriremos en este apasionante recorrido por la historia del scooter a través de los países y marcas que los fabricaron. Con abundante material gráfico inédito.

The motor scooter, so familiar a sight on the streets of cities throughout the world, can trace its ancestry back to the early years of the Twentieth century, but it really came into its own after the Second World War. In Italy the Piaggio company launched the Vespa that quickly became a byword for quick, cheap and chic urban personal transport. The Lambretta soon followed, along with dozens of rival scooters from manufacturers all over Europe. North America and Japan, including some famous names as Ducati, Heinkel, Triumph, Puch, Honda and Harley-Davidson.

Placing the vehicles in the context of fashions, lifestyles and contemporary events, this book is not just an automotive history, but a fascinating window onto a former age.
