Feisty little Italian: Gilera Storm 50

The Gilera Storm 50. For the times when you want to leave your MV Agusta F4 R 312 parked in the garage...?

Italians love sporty scooters. Last week we spoke of the new Malaguti Phantom F12 R, and now it’s another 50cc wonder – the Gilera Storm. Gilera talk of the Storm’s ‘aggressive and energetic spirit, which appeals to young people,’ while we approve of its steel tube chassis, 120/70 tubeless radial rubber and 190mm front disc brake. The scooter costs about US$2,750 and is available in red, black or white. More details on the Gilera website here.

The Storm 50 not macho enough for you? How about this 1949 Gilera Saturno San Remo...

Some very cool scooters:
The Gilera Fuoco 500
The Piaggio MP3
Team Cristofolini's 350cc, 112bhp monster-scooter!
