Research and development



The Immsi Group carries out research and development activities through the Piaggio group and the subsidiary Intermarine S.p.A.: below is a summary of the main current activities in the two respective sectors.


In 2020, the Piaggio group continued its policy to retain technological leadership in its sector, allocating €51.9 million to R&D. The main objective of the Piaggio group is to meet the most progressive needs for mobility, through a deep understanding of people and their habits, reducing the environmental impact and fuel consumption of its vehicles, ensuring customers excellent levels of performance. In its effort to ensure the sustainability of its products, the Piaggio group takes into account the entire life cycle, which comprises the design, procurement of raw materials, production, use of the product by customers and, finally, decommissioning, which consists in disassembly at the end of service life and in the disposal and/or recycling of the components and raw materials.

During its life cycle, every product directly and indirectly affects both the health and safety of people and the environment, understood as ecosystem quality. For this reason the Piaggio group focuses its R&D activities on developing innovative solutions to reduce the emission of pollutants and to increase the safety, reliability and recyclability of its products.
