Ladies Day: ’55 Durkopp Diana
The new Dürkopp Diana scooter was presented at the 1953 IFMA fair held in Frankfurt. Dürkopp selected the name “Diana” – meaning the goddess of hunting. The name stood for power and beauty. Without a doubt, the Diana was a German scooter with a touch of Italian design.
Dürkopp recognized that the design of the scooter was important in deciding which Scooter to purchase. The Diana offered a lot of interesting technical features but the name Diana said styling and grace. In other words, the folks at Durkopp selected women as a target audience. Today’s Diana was restored in the early ’90s and ridden frequently until 2000. The seller tells us there are only 10 Dianas in the US and this one is a 6V, kickstart model. It is a beautiful bike and we like the color and upholstery selection as it appears to be period correct for the model. This is a perfect time to find your fair weather scooter. We suggest you email the seller located in New York State and find out the selling price. Click here for the contact information
