A built-in smartphone holder recharges your phone while keeping it protected from the rain. And the speedometer, fuel gauge, and lights are accessed through a wireless app. At the same time, the designer maintains classic elements like the front circular headlight and cleverly integrates turn signals into the rear-view mirrors. Overall, Iacchetti has put an interesting twist on the Vespa, a classically Italian scooter born from the necessity for affordable transportation in post-World War II Italy.
Italian industrial designer Giulio Iacchetti has created a Vespa concept called Vespampère, which features an electric motor.
The cantilevered seat is a nod back to early Vespa designs, while the model has integrated smartphone technology.
The Vespa 98, which debuted in 1946, was a source of inspiration for Iacchetti’s revamped scooter.
