The Italian company Gilera was established in 1909 by Giuseppe Gilera. The first models created under the Gilera brand were road motorcycles with a 1-cylinder 4-stroke engine, and for a long time the company specialized in medium-volume motorcycles with power units of this type.
In 1937, rider Pierrot Taruffy on a four-cylinder racing motorcycle Gilera set an absolute world speed record.
In the 1950s, Gilera motorcycles equipped with the new 4-cylinder engine won 6 world titles.
A 4-cylinder racing motorcycle of a modern layout, the power unit of which was located transversely, and a chain drive was carried out on the rear wheel, imported Gilera into the history of motorsport forever.
Since 1969, Gilera became part of the Piaggio concern, after which the bulk of the company's products began to be light motorcycles with 1-cylinder 2-stroke and four-stroke power units.
Since the beginning of the 1990s, when the company was experiencing a sales crisis, the specialization of the Italian company was small-capacity motorcycles, mainly of a sporting nature, the main model was a small chopper Gilera Eaglet, equipped with a 50 cc engine with liquid cooling.
In 1993, the company very successfully launched the Typhoon 50 / 80 off-road scooter.
Currently, a number of motorcycles and scooters are produced under the Gilera brand with power units with a working volume of from 50 to one 180 cc.
