Piaggio Group has announced that its Derbi factory in Martorelles near Barcelona is to close down with the loss of more than 150 jobs. Production of Derbi motorcycles will be transferred from Spain to Italy.

Piaggio originally acquired the Spanish brand, which achieved 12 world grands prix titles with riders including Angel Nieto and Alex Crivillé, in 2001.
