Vietnam Simson S50 postal stamp 2 rielsThe Simson S50 is a classic moped of which more than 1.6 million were produced between 1975 and 1991. In Germany, the moped was permitted a top speed of 37 mph (Kleinkraftrad). The moped also became popular in many other countries. In Vietnam, the moped received its own postal stamp.

Simson mopeds became an icon in Germany. Its most iconic model, the Schwalbe, has already been re-introduced as an electric version by manufacturer Govecs, one of the biggest manufacturers of electric scooters.

"Vehicle tailpipe emissions are going down, but the emissions from disc brakes will remain to some extent, even if you drive an electric car," Weber said. "Therefore, this kind of process will continue to play out in the future and will be an important consideration when we look at the health effects of particulate matter." (
