The Čezeta Koch created is an iconic design all over the Soviet world, becoming famous as the "Communist's Vespa". Recognisable for its aerodynamic look, it captured the excitement of Sputnik, Gagarin and all the wonders of the 1950s space age. Everything about his design captured young Czechoslovaks dreams of a future filled with technological wonders. At home in Prague, we gave it its nickname - The Pig - because of its big round nose.
Its looks charmed the world in the 50s and 60s with over 120,000 being sold. Many of these vintage bikes are still in use today such was their quality (check #Cezeta on Instagram).
In 2013, Čezeta was restarted by Neil Eamonn Smith as an electric scooter (the announcement video Because good things should continue is shown below). This launched in 2018 with the first-series of 30 test scooters. From Spring 2019, the 506 is available across Europe to rent or buy.
