I think it’s fair to say that Vespa has defined the classic scooter style that has lasted in one form or another for over half a century. Interestingly though, that design hasn’t only been limited to scooters. A Barcelona-based company has borrowed those classic looks for a totally new type of vehicle: an electric monowheel.
And before you laugh, check out the specs. You might be more interested in this thing than you’d think…
Sit-down scooters and mopeds have been a popular form of transportation in Europe for decades, and have recently been finding favor in the US as well, as an increasing number of companies have started offering electric versions as part of their lineup.
Vespa, perhaps the most famous scooter maker of all, has finally dropped the veil on the production plans of their first electric Vespa, the Elettrica.
Vespa has been taking its sweet time to add electric options to its famous scooters. It unveiled the ‘Vespa Elettrica Concept’, its first electric scooter at the Milan Motorcycle Show last year.
And now at this year’s show, they are releasing the specs of the electric scooter, which they now say will hit the market in 2018.
