Transferred from Myrons Mopeds.
Malaguti is a family-owned motorcycle company based in San Lazzaro di Savena, Italy, founded by Antonio Malaguti in 1930. One of the many succesful products they made in the late 1970’s was the Malaguti Commuter moped. These machines were originally imported to the US by Malaguti of America, 1851 Post Road, Warwick, Rhode Island USA. Around maybe 1982, when the moped boom was almost over, Marina Mobili Inc, in Moonachie, New Jersey USA, bought out the US inventory and the rights to continue to distribute the Malaguti Commuter mopeds. MMI continued the trade name “Malaguti of America”.
