Scooter Center visits POLINI in Bergamo
Polini is known for Vespa tuning parts as well as scooter and motorcycle motorsport. The high-performance, high-quality tuning products are available from Scooter Center at a great price / performance ratio: POLINI scooter shop
The roots of the Family business lie in a small one Bicycle manufacture in Bologna. After World War II, Polini Battista originally built bicycles. During our visit we got to know his sons and grandchildren who run the company today very successful continue.
A real Picture book family business. We meet at least three generations of the family who work in a wide variety of positions in the company. We were introduced to a different family member at almost every corner. You are working in the company as Engineers and designers, photographers, designers and managers.
Today only the plaque and a few old pictures at the entrance to the Polini headquarters remind of this origin. Today Polini has nothing to do with bicycles. Almost nothing, because Polini wouldn't be Polini if she wasn't even one Would tune e-bikes...
A tuning kit for e-bike motors such as Bosch or Panasonic with a remarkable performance from 25 to 50 km / h has recently been available.
But now back to real motorsport.
Cup handover Customshow
We were really looking forward to the meeting because Polini is one of ours main suppliers and one of the oldest business partner. Polini supports us in ours Scooter Center Custom show SCOOTER SHOW from the beginning. So it was high time, now for the 8th year, to finally be there, personally and with a current one Customshow Cup thank you for that.
The family showed us the entire sacred halls, from development to laboratories with stress tests, several performance test benches, workshop, assembly halls to warehouse and logistics.
We were very impressed with the size and above all about the very open and warm, sympathetic nature with which we were received.
