A Brief History of the Marque
Manufactured: 1923-1925 in Modavio
A.P.E. was founded in 1923 by Ermanno Agostinelli of San Michele al Fiume, and Luigi Perone of Mondavio (Pesaro). Their first machine was fitted with a Blackburne 350cc engine, and in 1924 light motorcycles were introduced powered by Train two-strokes engines from France.
The firm built motorcycles in sports and tourist configuration which were very similar. They were no longer marketed after 1925.
