A brief history of Derbi motorcycles

Derbi was originally founded by Simón Rabasa i Singla in Mollet, near Barcelona, Spain, in 1922. Initially, the company focused on bicycle repair and hire, until 1944, when Singla formed Bicicletas Rabasa and began manufacturing bicycles.

This proved to be a very successful business for Singla, and a year later in 1946, he began developing a motorised version of his bikes. The first model, the 48cc SRS, looked more like a moped than a motorcycle and featured plunger rear suspension and a motorcycle-styled gas tank and exhaust system.

Following the success of the SRS, Singla was inspired to change his focus and after unveiling his first real motorcycle, the Derbi 250 in 1950, the company changed its name to Nacional Motor SA.

Derbi also competed in Grand Prix motorcycle racing, winning 50cc world championship titles in 1969, 1970 and 1972. The manufacturer also claimed four consecutive world titles between 1986 and 1989 when the 50cc class was increased to an 80cc displacement. In addition, Derbi enjoyed success in 125cc Grand Prix racing, winning world championship titles in 1971, 1972, 1988, 2008 and 2010.

Unfortunately, company founder Singla died in 1988, but the business remained independent until 2001, when it was bought by the Piaggio group. Today, Derbi manufactures motorcycles, scooters and all-terrain vehicles and is widely regarded as the European leader in the 50cc market.

Derbi’s range of motorcycles


Three bikes make up Derbi’s current selection of high range Supermoto machines – the Sendra DRD X-Treme 50SM (and Enduro model), Sendra DRD PRO 50 SM and Sendra DRD 125 SM. With striking sports character and superb performance in the most demanding enduro sections, these models are particularly popular with the young-at-heart.


Derbi has renewed its range of DRD (Derbi Racing Development) machines to encompass the Sendra DRD X-Treme 50 R, which has all the stability and accurate handling required for navigating uneven terrain off the beaten track.


Derbi’s street machines cater for all kinds of riders. Its Cross City 125 features a modern engine with low consumption, maintenance and emissions, while the reliability and fuel economy GPR 125 makes it an ideal choice for commuting. The Derbi GPR 50 2T and race version GPR 50 Racing are also available in this category. 


The Terra Adventure 125 has an advanced Euro3 125 four-stroke 4V engine and is one of the best 125cc trail bikes on the market.
