The factory produced tricycles and moped bikes up until the late sixties. The first microcar left the factory 1969. The Sulky, which at that time was a three-wheel vehicle, was unusual in its class for having a steel monocoque body. It was mostly made for people without a driving license and had an engine with less than 50 cc (a 49.6 cc Minarelli). There was also a 125 cc version. This car was also exported to France, where it was sold by the local Lambretta distributor as the Willam Sulky.[1] A four-wheeled model with a slightly longer body was also developed, for export only. This was called the Willam Bretta and also had 49 or 125 cc engine options; the larger-engined version has rectangular rather than round headlamps. The Sulky/Bretta have rear-wheel-drive and coil springs, the Bretta with wishbone front suspension.[1] The first Sulky was produced in large quantities, exceeding 10,000 units.

From 1994, when Italy accepted the European directive 92/61, CASALINI S.r.l. began to produce light quadricycles for sale in Italy as well. The first one of these was the Kore 500. The technical and aesthetic evolution of this vehicle was called Sulkydea (1996), Ydea (2000), Sulkydea LV (2004) and Sulky (2008). Over the past few years, the production of two transport- and leisure time vehicles have been added: Kerry and Pickup. In 2010 the M10 was presented, a four-wheel vehicle also available in a sporty "Daytona" version.

Two other connected companies supply Casalini S.r.l. in the production of Sulky, Kerry and Sulky Pickup: Mech-Plant S.r.l. that deal with metallic composition and Target S.r.l. that deal with plastic/ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) material. Sulky (now M10), Kerry, and Pickup have an extremely strong structure, constituted by a frame in steel treated against corrosion and by a composite material body that secures both an active and a passive safety. Visibility is insured by large glass door surfaces; the presence of four disc brakes and optimum suspensions. The speed limitation of 45 km/h further enhances important safety elements. Casalini S.r.l. is present in all markets of the European Union.

The series featured two teenagers, Gianni and Bruno, who were trying to collect a number of special souvenir statues of the Pisa Leaning Tower, scattered all across the world, whilst trying to prevent a group of criminals also getting their hands on the statues. Each statue granted its holder a different magical ability. Each episode a different statue would be recovered by one of the opposing sides, with each statue displaying a different coloured version of an interrobang.
