A TIMELESS LEGEND, AN ICON THAT CONTINUES TO EVOLVE WHILE REMAINING TRUE TO ITSELF

Presented to the general public as a concept on November 23, 1946 at the Milan International Cycle and Motorcycle Show, the Ape made its debut as a pre-production special in late 1947 and went officially into full-scale production in 1948. Known all over the world and with a unique cheeky appeal and unrivalled versatility, this vehicle is now approaching its 70th birthday. But the Ape is also an unexpectedly contemporary product that has sparked the curiosity and won the affection of countless persons who express their involvement through events, projects, blogs, websites and many other initiatives. No other commercial vehicle in the world has as much history as the Ape. And this is why we have decided to tell its story in detail!
