The distance that exists between scooter and motorcycle has been in recent years.
This project in addition to still ridure more detachment also adds emento vintage in vogue at this time.
The J SERIES is PiperMoto’s first project. John describes it as a Super Scooter; a hybrid of contemporary motorcycle engineering performance, with classic scooter looks and styling.
Built to order, each machine is finished to a personal detail specification, and carries the customers individual chassis number.
The lines are inspired by the past and remind those of Velocette Vouge, presented the public in 1962, and then to combine the intrinsic qualities of a commuter in quele a bike it is not so new.
