Piaggio Files Legal Complaint Against Yamaha And Peugeot For Patent Infringement

Piaggio Files Legal Complaint Against Yamaha And Peugeot For Patent Infringement

Piaggio has filed legal complaint against Yamaha and Peugeot, alleging that the two motorcycle manufacturers infringed on the company’s designs and patents for leaning three-wheeled scooters. The Italian motorcycle manufacturer filed the complaints with Italian courts against its Japanese and French rivals, specifically pointing to the designs of their three-wheeled scooters - the Yamaha Tricity and Peugeot Metropolis - as having copied the patents it used in developing the MP3.

According to Italian newspaper La Repubblica, Piaggio is looking to put the shackles on Yamaha and Peugeot from selling Tricity and Metropolis scooters, respectively. The company is also seeking monetary damages.

It’s not uncommon in the motorcycle industry for one company to claim that another infringed on its patents, but Piaggio appears to be bent on putting down the hammer against Yamaha and Peugeot. The Italian brand is specifically pointing to its parallelogram suspension system as the root of the infringement, claiming that Yamaha and Peugeot took the idea and used it on their own versions.

Piaggio’s complaints were filed in the fall of last year, but a preliminary hearing isn’t expected to begin until the next few months. La Repubblica also reported that Piaggio’s case against Peugeot has been adjourned until June 16, 2015. Meanwhile, a preliminary hearing has been set between Piaggio and Yamaha on July 24, 2015.

How these cases end up is still anybody’s guess, but if the courts determine that Yamaha and Peugeot are guilty of infringing on Piaggio’s designs and patents, the two companies could find themselves in the unenviable position of withdrawing their three-wheeled scooters from all of their markets. That and the monetary payments could be damaging to their respective wallets.

Mahindra Finalizes Majority Stake Purchase In Peugeot Motorcycles

Mahindra Finalizes Majority Stake Purchase In Peugeot Motorcycles

Mahindra’s previously pending purchase of a 51-percent controlling share in Peugeot Motorcycles has finally been signed, sealed, and delivered. If you remember, the two companies first announced that a deal was imminent back in October 2014 when it was agreed upon by both Mahindra and Peugeot that the former would pay the latter €15 million in cash and €13 million in shares, for a grand total of €28 million.
Once the negotiations were finalized, both Mahindra and Peugeot have agreed to build back Peugeot’s once lofty status as one of Europe’s best scooter brands. Part of that plan would be to keep the machines from the two brands separate from each other. Under that formula, Mahindra would be catering to the mass-market segment while Peugeot would be retaining its high-end market status. Both companies will continue to use Peugeot’s technology across the range, which could help Mahindra develop a a variety of scooter models that would feature high-end tech coming from the French company.
As far as Peugeot is concerned, having Mahindra on its side gives it the resources to reignite some spark into the company, which has admittedly lost steam in recent years as a wave of cheaper Chinese models have clawed their way on top of the sales charts, leaving Peugeot’s scooter sales in decline over the past few years. With Mahindra now in the fold, Peugeot can officially begin its ascent atop the scooter ladder.
Returning to its lofty perch is easier said than done, but at least Peugeot now has a partner to essentially get the job done.

Mahindra could buy Peugeot's scooter division

Mahindra could buy Peugeot’s scooter division

Peugeot’s scooter division has never managed to raise at the expectations of the French manufacturer as far as sales are concerned. Therefore, under the command of Carlose Tavares which is the new CEO brought in from Renault, the company has took the drastic decision to sell it. It is true that last year, the company saw an 8,2% increase in scooter sales but this wasn’t enough to make them change their mind.

The truth is that in the latest years, the company dealt with a pretty harsh financial situation and their new decision comes as no surprise for us.

For the moment, we don’t have any official confirmation, about this transaction but rumors have it that the company’s scooter division will be bought by Mahindra & Mahindra as hinted by the “Le Parisien” newspaper.

On the other hand, Mahindra is getting bigger and bigger and this acquisition could be another major game changer for the Indian company which is already starting to be seen as a serious player in the automotive industry.

Stay tuned for more details.
