Zanella is an Argentine motorcycle manufacturer founded in 1948, originally using 100 and 125 cc engines designed by Fabio Taglioni[1][2] and licensed from Ceccato motorcycles of Italy.[3] Currently[when?] Zanella builds small motorcycles, mopeds and ATVs. Zanella formerly manufactured go-karts.

Zanella also produces the ZMax series of three wheel motorcycles (trikes) and light trucks.[4][non-primary source needed]

Business[edit]

Zanella's products are aimed at all users through a wider and more varied range mopeds, motorbikes, bikes, quads, karts and 4-stroke engines, ranging from 50 to 500 cc. However, only the mopeds are manufactured in Argentina, at its plants in Caseros and San Luis; while almost all other products are imported; usually in the form of knock down kits..

Its plants have an installed production capacity (between manufacture and assembly of imported motorcycles) of 12,000 units per month. It is expected that the export plan will lead to the production level up to 14,000 units per month, returning to the levels of previous employment of approximately 1,000 direct employees and 3,000 indirect employees.

On December 22 was held at the plant Zanella in Caseros, Buenos Aires, the official presentation of the Chamber of Manufacturers, dealers and suppliers of motor vehicles (Cámara de Fabricantes, Concesionarios y Proveedores de Motovehículos - CAFACOM), which brings together traders motorcycles, scooters, ATVs and related vehicles and their Iberoamércia parts. At the ceremony were representatives of dealers, suppliers, General Confederation entrepreneur of Argentina (CGERA) Chairman Marcelo Fernandez.[5]

"As a national company, Zanella is constantly developing projects in defense of the motorcycle industry and the interests of customers; and that is why we are promoting the creation of the House of Moto, to get more and better benefits for both manufacturers and traders.[5]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ "Fabio Taglioni", Men who made history, Ducati Motor Holding S.p.A., 2009, Wounded during the war, he returned home in 1949 and immediately started working with the Ceccato motorcycle company. In 1950 he was taken on by Mondial, where he worked until 1954. 
  2. ^ "THEORY AND HISTORY OF THE DUCATI DESMODROMIC ENGINE Forth Part QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS", The Ducati Desmodronic Engine, Ducati Motor Holding S.p.A., 2009, TAGLIONI I worked for two other companies before I joined Ducati. I designed a 75 twin camshaft, which was then adjusted for the Giro d’Italia (a twin camshaft was a bit too heavy). So it was turned into a single camshaft and was used in the Giro d’Italia on several occasions, in the Milan – Taranto and lots of other races, under the Ceccato brand. That engine acted as my business card when I was introduced to Count Borselli, on his request. He was looking for a young engineer, with a certain level of experience. I told him that I didn’t have much experience but I showed him the finished engine and said that was what I could do. He said to me: “I’m not interested in the engine but I’m interested in you because I work with 125s and up. I can help you to sell it if that’s what you want to do but I’m not interested in it”. And in fact he did help me sell it to Ceccato. He let me go to Ceccato for the tuning and then I worked at Mondial for two years, until 1954, when I joined Ducati.
