Default Motorcycle heads, any idea what kind of bikes these are?

I am guessing they are vintage European motorcycles, but I know absolutely nothing about these kinds of bike.



The picture is a new advertisement for Ermenegildo Zegna's Elements line. I just came across it in the New York Times Style Magazine. I've been looking for a European style scooter to cruise around Manhattan in, but wanted something a little....cooler. I really like the look of the bike on the left. Any more info would be helpful. Thanks guys.
