Vespa is essentially brand of scooter manufactured by Piaggio, which means wasp in Italian. It all started with a single model motor scooter manufactured in 1946 by Piaggio & Co. S.p.A. of Pontedera, Italy to a full lineup today. Those familiar with the scooters know they all look similar with a painted, pressed steel unibody which consists of a complete cowling for the engine, flat floorboard, and a distinctive front fairing. What if the company made a modern electric model? Introducing the Vespa 98 Electric Concept by MightySeed.
Even though it retains its classic design, complete with wheel fairings and a fender-mounted headlight, there are some modern touches. You’ll find LED strip lights on the handlebars and a LIDAR system replaces rearview mirrors. Now power is sourced from a 30 aH lithium-ion battery under the seat, paired with a hub-mounted motor. Unfortunately, there are no words yet on if MightySeed is in talks with Piaggio to make this a reality.
