Gilera's 839cc V-twin GP800, is to be turned into an Aprilia next year
In America Piaggio Group has already rebranded the 500cc, three-wheeled Gilera Fuoco as the Piaggio MP3 500. They also sold Derbi models as Aprilia models in the past since they don't promote the Derbi brand ( see previous blog entries on that) By repositioning the GP800 as an Aprilia the firm will capitalise on the fact it already shares the engine and automatic transmission with the Aprilia Mana.
EICMA this year should also showcase the new Scarebeo 125ie. Also, see our previous blog entries on the Kymco MyRoad 700cc and the new Honda Integra 700cc scooter.
