Italjet is one of the two Italian entrepreneurial realities in the world of two wheels that has kept the same ownership throughout its history. The Tartarini family has been leading the company for 60 years with the same enthusiasm, courage and passion that have made Italjet a brand capable of setting trends.
Italjet is synonymous with passion for the world of two wheels. The Bolognese brand was born in 1959 thanks to the entrepreneurial spirit of Leopoldo Tartarini, a well-known motorcycle rider of the 1950s, protagonist of great sports feats among which the victory in the Milan-Taranto in 1953, three world records with the Cyclecar in Monza in 1969 and the incredible feat of traveling around the world in 13 months, between 1957 and '58, crossing five continents and 42 countries.
An eclectic and farsighted character, Tartarini motorcycles have always represented the common thread of life. As well as passion and ingenuity have always distinguished Italjet.
The company has created more than 150 different models, resulting from creativity and technological research and all are capable of anticipating the times. The definitive consecration of the brand as a reference for style and innovation took place on February 14, 1980 when the design sector of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the prestigious MoMA decided to exhibit in its permanent collection Italjet Pack 2, the only motorized two-wheeled vehicle housed in the exhibition area. In 1998 the Guggenheim Museum in New York exhibited the liquid-cooled Italjet Formula 50 scooter, already named scooter of the year four times, in Germany, Spain and twice in Italy, in the exhibition entitled "The Art of the Motorcycle".
After having enjoyed enormous success in Italy and North America, in 2000 also, Velocifero, the Italjet scooter that perfectly blends vintage 60s style with modern technology, was named "The Best Product of 2000" by the American magazine Business Week.
Italjet today represents Italian excellence with a glorious past, whose models have been sold in 48 countries worldwide.

Today the company sees Massimo, Leopoldo's son, at the helm, who is also committed to proposing new models to make Italjet a protagonist on the international scene again. Massimo Tartarini is joined by a highly qualified, dynamic and proud work team to be part of a company with such a significant history and identity.
