The future scooter concept is inspired by the spirit of American Jeep and Vespa

~Glad To Be Back~ It's been a long time, we don't write the content that talks about the scooters. And now it feels like it's time for us to re-present something about today's scooter designs (although only in terms of ideas and concepts) related to current trends. The following is one of the scooter concepts (here's no. 1 of 3 concepts) that we have prepared where the whole design are inspired by the Italian scooter legend, Piaggio Vespa.

Here is the scooter concept design made by Paolo Corcagnani back in 2007. As qouted of Moto.it, this scooter was inspired and dedicated by the designer to Vespa, the legendary scooter that has invaded our city streets for over sixty years. The two-wheeled concept vehicle later called the Piaggio CT, or Piaggio Carving Tool was also intended as a modern evolution representation of the original Vespa design.

From the concept scooter looks, as we can see it has a very futuristic and simple design. According to the designer, the scooter concept was inspired by the versatility of the US Army's original wartime Jeep. What he calls as a pure vehicle, in which everything is oriented towards simplicity and functionality.
The Piaggio CT has the most distinctive design elements is the military coloring of the Green Army completed with the 'US Army' star logo or emblem. (Picture from: MotoBlog.it)
This may be because the designer has the opinion that the Vespa is in a somekind of sense such in terms of functionality and design could be said as an "Italian Jeep." It is "one of the few means that also serves a purpose of use", efficient, economical and pleasing to the eye. No wonder then Paolo Corcagnani displays it in the touch of Green Army finishing.

In general, the Piaggio CT scooter concept is intended to bring back the spirit of the legendary vehicles such the Jeep and Vespa at the same time in the form of a modern two-wheeled vehicle. Besides being inspired by those two legendary vehicles, it turns out that some of the design elements of this concept scooter also take their cues from the similar vehicles built after the legendary Vespa born, for example the Honda Zoomer, the Japanese scooter which known has a simple central unit and functional elements with a modular structure (handles, engine, license plate and taillights).
Uniquely the Piaggio CT has a removable saddle when the hole is used for refueling. (Picture from: TopSpeed)
We can see this in some of the forms in the scooter concept that were inspired by past ideas (such as headlights) or vehicles in a certain sense similar, such as bicycles but equipped with modern features so that their functions can be felt immediately.

In addition, among the existing design elements and looks the most distinctive is the military coloring where the designer gave the scooter concept the finishing touch of the Green Army (completed with the 'US Army' star logo or emblem). The scooter designer said that is not as a form of reference to the war, but as a form that represents the Jeep and the "logic" of a functional vehicle).
What's unique about the handlebar is appeared in an unusual shape, like an iron rod that is bent in such a way as to form a unique handlebar. On the handlebars, there are no exposed wires, only the brakes (on the left) and the accelerator control, while the lights and indicators are activated automatically in sync with the angle of the handlebar itself.
The Piaggio CT has a more extreme model with no handlebar and replaced by gyroscopic steering similar to two-wheeled vehicles on a single axle such Segway. (Picture from: MotoBlog.it)
Then the instrument panel is also uniquely placed on the handlebar hole, while the driver's saddle is shaped like a bicycle saddle that can be removed freely in which the hole is used for refueling as well. In addition to the normal version, a more extreme Piaggio CT has also been planned, in which elements have been further reduced: for example, the handlebars are gone, replaced by gyroscopic steering similar to two-wheeled vehicles on a single axle (such as the Segway).
 
Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops...... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTOBLOG.IT | TOPSPEED ]
