Derbi started manufacturing the
moped, "Derbi SRS" after world war 2.
In 1987 Derbi starts selling Kawasaki products.
In 1992 Derbi launches the scooter "Vamos".
Derbi successfully met the
challenges that followed the Spanish transition to democracy and Spain's entry
into the European Community. Simeó Rabasa i Signla passed away in 1988 but the
company remained independent until 2001, when it was bought out by the Piaggio
group. The name Derbi is an acknowledgement of the companies history and is an
acronym for DERivados de BIcicletas (derivatives of bicycles).
