On the road for 40 years on the Piaggio Ciao

Created by Dietrich Limper at 13:08 on August 23, 2023

If you are sitting in a beer garden in Munich, at some point you will notice the friendly man selling newspapers and roses. But it is not only the bearer of these goods who is an eye-catcher in his bright yellow Vest, but also the well-kept white Piaggio Ciao on which he drives the streets of Bavaria's capital. So we had to ask what man and machine are all about. Our field reporter Poldi was there and now we know that Mohammed Rafiqu has been delivering newspapers and riding the Ciao since 1976.

Mohammed Rafiqu (left) has been bringing (not only) good news for more than 40 years

How many kilometres he covers a day, why he chose a Ciao and what he rides in winter - you can find out all this in the short video linked below. In any case, we wish Mohammed Rafiqu many more years of safe riding on his moped and all the best!

If you, like Mohammed, would like to buy your moped parts from us, go to our Moped & Moped section.
