Launched in 1957, Čezeta picked up its styling from the fashionable space age look of the time. It's designer was Jaroslav František Koch - a renowned racer and engineer and something of a genius in Czechoslovak motorcycles. He called his first Čezeta scooter the 'Type 501' and it was hailed as an instant classic of the so-called 'Brussels' design movement.
It's missile shape exuded sass and sex appeal and made it a massive hit. Over 120,000 have gone to fans from Cuba to Vietnam as the series developed into further models. If it was possible to capture all the excitement of Sputnik, Gagarin and all the modernist wonders of the post war period then this was it. Home in Prague, it got the nickname The Pig... that's not an insult, we Czechs really love pigs.
The latest Čezeta is the 'Type 506', which was developed and launched in 2018 . It has minimum changes from the original design, only it's now using electric power for more fun and easier use. The first-series Type 506 is a special-limited edition of 60 bikes, making it perhaps the world's rarest electric scooter.
The next 'second-series' of the Čezeta Type 506 is planned for 2021.
