Bottom of a very, very steep hill yesterday morning. Ouch. Took a lump out of the concrete fence too.
Behold: the Vespa Elettrica – an electric scooter first announced over two years ago and now finally taking advance orders for delivery later this year. The 4kW engine outperforms the traditional 50cc petrol predecessor and the initial 100km range will double with the addition of a more powerful Elettrica X variant.
Yours for around €6,400.
Indonesia’s ‘extreme Vespa ‘ scene, as documented by photographer Darren Whiteside.
The zero emissions Elettrica scooter from Vespa – 100km range, 4-6 hour charge time and, best of all, smartphone integration via Vespa’s Multimedia Platform app to save you fiddling with your iPhone X as you glide down Via Del Corso.
There’ll also be an Elletrica X with a petrol-driven generator that doubles the range.
Talking orders from Spring 2018.
