Vespa Segway is made by an Italian scooter brand which is manufactured by Piaggio. Vespa translates to “wasp” in Italian. The brand has evolved from a one model only motor scooter back in 1946 to a complete line of scooters and is just one of 7 companies currently owned by Piaggio.
Vespa scooters can easily be recognized since they have a pressed, painted steel uni-body that combines a full cowling on the engine that will protect its motor from any dirt, a floorboard to protect your feet and a front fairing to protect you against the wind. All of this is built together into a single structural unit. They’ve been around for so long, you can’t really go wrong if you buy one. But we’re not here to talk about Vespa’s, we are here to talk about something completely different.
But before we get to that, let’s look at the Segway: A 2-wheeled, battery-powered, self-balancing electric vehicle created by Dean Kamen. The word Segway is basically a homophone for “segue”, which means smooth transition. These Segue’s are run on electric motors and can attain speeds of 20 km/h. Users can make it move forward by shifting weight in that direction and backward by shifting weight in the opposite direction. The device can detect changes in the center of mass while balancing itself before establishing or maintaining speed either forward or backward.
But what would happen if you combined both these distinctive vehicles and give a very cool upgrade to a not so cool Segway? In come the designers from Bel & Bel, a Spanish design house. They have given a lot of thought to the subject and as a result created the Vespa Segway. This new product is called the Zero scooter and is made from parts that have been taken from the Vespa. It looks quite brilliant. Hipsters finally have a new ride.
This is the first self-balancing scooter designed by Corradino D’Ascanio.
In terms of mechanics and electronics, they rely on the world’s leading brand, NineBot. This is why, Zero Scooter is considered the best product when it comes to technology and electronics too. Zero Scooter is basically a “conversion kit” although you can also acquire the whole product or only the kit to fit to your base NineBot. The technical features and integrity of your model won’t be modified if you use this kit. The final consumer will retain all of his rights and official guarantees from the manufacturer too.
This product will certainly help EV’s get closer to audiences who have considered them distant from their realities. It will also bring a fresh feeling to retro designs with the best technology.
