Our quirky and novel three-wheeled scooter was developed at the end of World War II by Piaggio, the makers of the Vespa. Christened the APE (pronounced Ahpeh), the name means “Bee” in Italian while the Vespa means “Wasp.” The war had devastated the Italian economy creating a need for an affordable transport solution that could handle those tricky small Italian roads and service the farming industry as well as provide light delivery. Eh, voila, the Ape was born. Over the years the models have been updated but the spirit remains the same - a scooter with a roof that can carry what ever you may need which may just happen to be a libation.
