The Simson S50 range was produced between 1975 and 1991 and more than 1.6 million copies were sold globally. The moped was among the most popular mopeds in several countries, including Vietnam where the moped received its own postal stamp.
Simson mopeds became an icon in Germany. Its most iconic model, the Simson Schwalbe, has already been re-introduced as an electric version by German manufacturer Govecs, one of the biggest manufacturers of electric scooters.
Two small bikeshops in Germany produce an innovative electric reincarnation of the Simson S50 range mopeds. The bikeshops can also provide a custom electric conversion of other classic mopeds.
The mopeds can be ordered online and are shipped worldwide.
New since 2022:
