Italjet Formula 50 AC

The company has a history of producing light motorcycles, scooters and more recently quadbikes.

In the 1990s, it launched the Dragster, Formula and Velocifero models. In 1998 an Italjet Formula was exhibited as part of The Art of the Motorcycle show at the Guggenheim Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

In 1999, the business launched the Grifone, powered by a 900 cc three-cylinder Triumph engine. A completely new factory in Roseto was built to manufacture the Grifone, but in 2002 the company went bust. In 2005 it was taken over by Massimo Tartarini, the son of the original owner. Under his direction the company has developed lightweight touring motorcycles based on the Korean Hyosung 650's frame and engine, various eBikes and a new updated Italjet Dragster

From 2000 to 2002 Italjet competed in the 125 cc MotoGP race series with the Italjet F125.
