Čezeta started life in 1957, it's radical rocket design reflecting the start of the 'space age'. At the time, communist Czechoslovakia was one of the world's centres of motorcycle manufacturing and its launch was intended to show off to the world its engineering excellence. The final design was a brave one, a radical design by Jaroslav František Koch - a renowned motorcycle racer and engineer. He called it the 'Type 501'.
It was a massive hit wherever it was sold, over 120,000 were sold from Cuba to Vietnam. Recognisable for its chic look, it captured the excitement of Sputnik, Gagarin and all the starry wonders of the 1950s. Home in Prague, it got the nickname The Pig, from its chubby nose. Notably, many of these classic vintage models are still in use today as proof of their legendary quality - to see some, check #Cezeta on Instagram (feed below).
Čezeta launched the latest 'Type 506' in 2018. These are still hand built locally, and with only 50 being made available annually it's one of the world's rarest production motorcycles. It's also the Czech Republic's first electric vehicle and a priceless piece of our country's motorcycling history.
Throughout Čezeta's history, its scooters have always pointed to different - and often extraordinary - solutions. Owners around the world enjoy the extravagant design and supreme quality they offer. As a result, Čezeta remains the definitive premium motorcycle company, crafting the world's finest scooters for your enjoyment.
