Aprilia is an Italian motorcycle company, one of the brands owned by Piaggio. Having started as a manufacturer of bicycles it moved on to manufacture scooters and small-capacity motorcycles. In more recent times, Aprilia has produced large sportbikes such as the 1,000 cc V-twin RSV Mille and the V4 RSV4. Aprilia has enjoyed considerable success in road-racing.

The company was founded immediately after World War II by Cavaliere Alberto Beggio, initially as a bicycle production factory in Noale, Italy, in the province of Venice. Alberto’s son, Ivano Beggio, took over the helm of the company in 1968 and constructed a 50 cc "motorcycle" with a dozen or so collaborators. The first production Aprilia mopeds were named Colibrì, Daniela, and Packi.

Over the years, Aprilia has produced many popular models and has been involved in the world of motorcycle racing. This involvement has brought a number of championships in various categories, including the 125cc and 250cc World Championship. The brand is known for its sporty character and advanced technology and is considered one of the top motorcycle manufacturers in Europe.
