What would a Čezeta look like if it was being built now? To answer this, we have developed a new 'Type 506' which builds on the Čezeta's original idea for a practical and simple everyday scooter by adding the latest technology to the classic streamlined shape. We have developed a series of five prototypes, which during testing have proven to be practical and fun to use, as well as being massively cheaper to run and far more reliable than petrol-driven motorbikes. Follow the link below to read more about the Type 506, and how you can order one of these beautiful scooters.
Čezeta was launched during the 1950s as a radically-advanced touring scooter. Combining high-quality engineering with a radical space-age design, it was a huge success worldwide. Over 115,000 were sold.
They featured in articles and films, and product developments were covered in press throughout the world.
The original manufacturer of the Čezeta scooter was the Česká Zbrojovka Strakonice (ČZ) company; with Jawa, they were once part of the world's largest manufacturer of motorcycles. From 1957 two čezeta types were produced: 501 and 502. The scooter was also used as the base for a 3-wheel pickup (the '505') and production spread as far as New Zealand, where it was made under the name N-Zeta. Then in 1964, a communist bureaucrat in the government decided to stop making it, despite its popularity - a terrible decision because the čezeta scooter had proved to be an exceptionally good design with many advantages over a 'vespa'-style scooter.
Fast-forward 50 years to 2013 and čezetas are now making a long-overdue return with a new limited-edition type 506 prototype... using the latest technology to return these practical and beautiful scooters to daily use.Read more about the history of Čezeta
