18 February, 2013 - Derbi Motorcycles Moves From Spain To Italy
Derbi Terra 125 Adventure

Derbi, an old Spanish motorcycle manufacturer dating back to 1922 and purchased by the Piaggio group in 2001, is closing down in Spain. Although the brand did well during the mid 50's, winning several GP titles, it has been lacking in sales. Already in 2011 its owner, Piaggio group, announced that they would close down the factory and had been negotiating for a purchaser. All deals have fallen through, and it's the end of the line for the Spanish factory.

With Spain suffering from an enormous financial crisis, with more than 25% of the people unemployed, the Spanish manufacturer is suffering. Reason enough for Piaggio to consolidate the manufacturing and closing down the plant in Barcelona. 150 Derbi employees have been let go.

The current range of Derbi motorcycle, mostly 50 to 125cc models, will be made by Piaggio Italy.

For the budding Ewan McGregor/Charlie Boorman fans..
