A little known chapter of “Made in Italy”, the Maserati M2. The only Maserati scooter in existence, a prototype marked M2. I have had the scooter for approximately twenty years. Not much is known about the scooter, only that it was completely handmade sometime in mid-late 1950s, when Maserati tried to break into the scooter market in Latin America, to compete with Vespa, Lambretta etc. The presentation took place in Mexico City. They had already started producing motorcycles Maserati + Italmoto.
I have a web site dedicated to the scooter with several photos and info: maserati-scooter-prototype.com (1)
I will be moving back to Italy, where I am from and where my daughter is now living with her husband, reason why I am planing to sell my Maserati at a fair price. I have taken a look at the Maserati motorcycle prices and was planing to list mine for $25.000 or Best Offer. The Maserati badge includes the name Alferez, supposedly in Spanish for Alfieri Maserati (The founder of Maserati).
