Scooter Center visits POLINI in Bergamo
Polini is famous for Vespa tuning parts and scooter and motorcycle motor sports. You can buy high-performance tuning products of high quality at Scooter Center at a great cost-benefit ratio: POLINI Scooter Shop
The roots of the family business are a small push bike production site in Bologna. After WWII Polini Battista initially built bicycles. We got to know his sons and grand-sons during our visit. Today they very successfully continue to manage the business.
The videoA perfect family business. We meet at least three generations of the family. All of them working in various positions within the company. We were introduced to yet another family member at every corner. They work in the company as engineers, design engineers, photographers, designers and managers.
Today, only a badge and some old pictures by the entrance to the Polini headquarters remind of its roots. Today Polini is no longer in the bicycle business. Or almost. Polini wouldn’t be Polini if they didn’t even tune an E-Bike.
You can now purchase a tuning kit for e-bike engines of e.g. Bosch or Panasonic with considerable performance enhancement from 25 to 50 km/h.
But lets turn back to real motor sports.
Handing over the Customshow cup
We were looking forward to this meeting, because Polini is one of our most important suppliers and one of our oldest business partners. Polini has supported our Scooter Center Customshow SCOOTERSHOW from the very first day. So now, after 8 years, it was high time to finally say thank you on site and handing over a current Custumshow cup.
We were shown around the families hallowed halls, from development to labs with stress tests and several dynamometers, from garage and assembly halls to warehouse and logistics.
We were very impressed by the size and the open-minded and very warm welcome.
You know who we are. The long journey has to pay off and business didn’t come up short: In the future we will have an even larger Polini product range, for example:
Polini CP – carburetor
Polini CP carburetors have been part of our product range for a long time.
It has gotten around that these easily adjustable carburetors also run perfectly on Vespa Smallframe and Lambretta. Its areas of use are limited, because only these sizes are obtainable: 17,5 / 19 / 21 / 23 / 24 (Evolution).
In-house development by Polini, MADE in ITALY. PWK – jets fit!
Polini brake pads
The brake pads are used in Polini Cup races and other racing series. They fill their drivers with enthusiasm.
You can purchase Polini brake pads that fit your scooter at your Scooter Center Shop.
