Patented in 1946 by the Italian society Piaggio, the Vespa is one of the most iconic scooters. Its design has long been used as the spearhead of the italian creativity and its commercial success is still present with tens of thousands of copies sold each year ... still today!
An icon of scooters that has its aficionados, like the industrial designerGiulio Iacchetti which has challenged itself to update it by creating the Vespampère. Behind this name (which is not a commercial project, just a passionate idea), hides an extra version of Vespa with a electric motor and a surprisingCantilever seat which obviously takes the lines of the initial silhouette.
The headlight remained circular; he overhangs the model and works to electricity. Very thin mirrors contain flashing lights that work, such as the speedometer and the wireless fuel gauge. A little extra: a compartment has been created on the dashboard to drag his smartphone to recharge it.
In short, we let you look in detail at all the photos below, becauseGiulio Iacchetti really did a very creative job to give a more futuristic version of Vespa. Whether we like scooters or not, we can not remain indifferent to the work of updating that gives a boost to an Italian icon ... who did not say his last word !
