The future Vespa La Speciale concept capable to be transformed into a segway

~Sempre Una Vespa~ 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. 3 of 3 concepts) that we have prepared where the whole design are inspired by the Italian scooter legend, Piaggio Vespa.
The Vespa La Speciale Concept is complied as a disertation of three Italian students of the Istituto d'Arte Applicata e Design (IAAD) in Turin. (Picture from: Behance.net)
Did you know that apart from those who know how to earn a trust like the designers who officially work for the company, there are literally thousands of others struggling to stand out? And often the latter is much better than the former. For example in the case of the following three Italian students who do their job far beyond what is called a "professional" after You seen their designed scooter as follow;
Here are the three Italian students of the Istituto d'Arte Applicata e Design (IAAD), namely Federico Bernardi, Mattia La Coppola and Andrea Ortile. (Picture from: Behance.net)
As quoted from ScooterNet, it is said that there are three Italian students, namely Federico Bernardi, Mattia La Coppola and Andrea Ortile, who are studying in the major of the industrial design at the Istituto d'Arte Applicata e Design (IAAD), a Turin-based private university of design. And when they were about to finish their studies, they then compiled a dissertation on the future Vespa scooter design called Vespa La Speciale for its 70th birthday (meaning 5 years ago, because today, in 2021 Vespa celebrates the 75th anniversary).
The Vespa La Speciale Concept is created by combining past traditions and future innovations without forgetting the values of originallity as well as reinterpretated of globally thinking without time limit. (Picture from: Behance.net)
After first they putting the idea on a piece of paper, and immediately set up the parameters that would characterize of the scooter design, such as usability, Italian, social, youth, traditional, smart, simple, cool, fashionable, etc.
The Vespa La Speciale Concept was developed as an electric-powered vehicle to support the needs of the new generation. (Picture from: Behance.net)
As excerpted from BehanceNet, this future Vespa scooter design is created by combining past traditions and future innovations without forgetting the values of originallity as well as reinterpretated of globally thinking without time limit. Vespa La Speciale is a two-wheeled vehicle designed to target young people. That is why this scooter concept was developed as an electric-powered vehicle to support the needs of the new generation.
The Vespa La Speciale Concept is electric powered, and therefore the engine size can be reduced, followed by under-saddle storage space. (Picture from: Behance.net)
According to the designers, the concept was formally created after having finished observing carefully what the Vespa was in the past, a true legend of the Italian two-wheeler. And finally, they decided to take inspiration from the Vespa 50 Special, a small, compact and versatile vehicle powered by a tiny 50 cc engine. Furthermore, it was also mentioned that this two-wheeler concept combines two sides that have always been faithful to the Vespa brand, namely the scooter's fashions and accessories.
The Vespa La Speciale Concept is is a two-wheeled vehicle designed to target young people. (Picture from: Behance.net)
After the scooter design sketches were completed, the color composition began to fall and at the same time the ideas based on the latest technology also emerged, such as the rear wheel (when the scooter stops) can be detached from the scooter body which can be functioned as a one-wheelers such the Segway. Dodgy, isn't! 
The Vespa La Speciale Concept's 'killing details', take a look at the 'shell wreath' of the cut projector. (Picture from: Behance.net)
Also, because the scooter is electric powered, and therefore the engine size can be reduced, followed by under-saddle storage space, that's the next brilliant design ideas of them.
Not to mention, if you want to talk about the 'killing details', take a look at the 'shell wreath' of the cut projector. Top proposals we've never seen before.

When it's finished, few see their work, few know about it and never been glimpsed by any scooter manufacturers.😭 But what is certain this design concept has spoken along with the increasing number of modern scooters passing by on the streets.

Right now, don't be surprised if you see the ideas of three Italian youngster might be seen on the current production version scooters. Why can this happen? Because this is usually done, with the excuse of 'un-officially design', thus giving the brand owner 'more rights' to implement it arbitrarily. Is it true like that? The answer entirely is up to you. 🙏 Keep in mind, We are not in a judgmental capacity.

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 | BEHANCENET | SCOOTERNET.GR]

The Elektron Truva electric car concept with the power of 1,400 hp

~Another Dream~ Not long ago, the German automotive startup named the Elektron Innovativ Technologien aka Elektron Motors has revealed its electric-powered hypercar named Quasar which is claimed to be able to spew the power up to 2,300 horsepower so it capable to speed up to maximum speed of 450 kilometers per hour.
The Elektron Truva supercar is powered by three electric motors capable of generating power up to 1,400 hp or 1,044 kW. (Picture from: Modifikasi)
And now the German company has announced another new high-performance electric-powered car called the Elektron Truva, where this model will appear as a slightly lower-performance than the Quasar hypercar.

As quoted of Motor1, the Elektron Truva comes as an electric-powered supercar equipped with three electric motors capable of generating power up to 1,400 hp or 1,044 kW. The car also comes with a futuristic and sporty look where there are several color variants that will be available such as green, red, silver, and orange.
The Elektron Truva supercar will be equipped with a battery with a capacity of up to 100 kWh, which of course makes this car capable of traveling long distances. (Picture from: Modifikasi)
The German automaker also revealed that this electric car will be equipped with a battery with a capacity of up to 100 kWh, which of course makes this car capable of traveling long distances. Initial information about the Truva includes an "innovative composite chassis" while dampers are handled by a pushrod suspension system. Perhaps the most appropriate reason to introduce the Truva under the Quasar is the price.
The Elektron Truva supercar will be launched six months after its sibling the Quasar released in 2023. (Picture from: Modifikasi)
The Elektron Motors says that the Truva will start at €600,000! How many? Unlike its sibling, the Elektron Quasar, which stated that only 99 units would be available, unfortunately for the Truva supercar, the German company did not mention how many units it would sell.
Of course those price numbers would changed after the launching of the Truva supercar as the plan six months after the launch of the Quasar hypercar in 2023. Suppose both models are presented to the real world, then the Truva's convertible version is also said would be launched.

We'll hope these all electric-powered savage beasts of Elektron could be realized and shown off as the plan. Now on, nothing could be done except we'll wait and see.😉 *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ID.MOTOR1 | CARSSCOOPS ]

~Contemporer Concept~  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. 2 of 3 concepts) that we have prepared where the whole design are inspired by the Italian scooter legend, Piaggio Vespa.
The Motivo (in scaled model) is such a unique shaped electric-powered scooter concept designed by Tai Chiem back in 2009. (Picture from: Coroflot.com)
The following concept scooter is called the Movito, which we first saw while surfing the Internet some time ago, and interestingly it was created with an unusual design and somewhat different from the others on the market.
The Motivo (in scaled model) has a sexy design appeals to hip and trendy young adults, making a striking statement wherever it goes with its sophistocated styling and two toned colours. (Picture from: Coroflot.com)
The Movito is an eco-friendly electric scooter that recently took top honors in NASA’s Create the future Design Contest back in the 2009. This unique shaped futuristic scooter concept designed by Tai Chiem. The architecture of the scooter concept is completely overhauled allowing for a fresh and innovative design approach. Movito expresses lightness and movement in an elegant form.

How not, the fresh futuristic impression of the concept vehicle can be captured from its design character which generally displays a rounded shape with some parts that look tapered, besides that it also applies the hubless wheel features in front, that means the wheel is not centered and spinning on an axis, but rather caught from its bottom side of a rolling rigid fixed part, that goes to the scooter’s direction fork.
The Motivo (in scaled model) is intended for urban use and come complete with a GPS, touch screen interface and helmet storage. (Picture from: Coroflot.com)
According to the designer, the innovative scooter concepts are intended for urban use and come complete with a GPS, touch screen interface and helmet storage. It's sexy design appeals to hip and trendy young adults, making a striking statement wherever it goes with its sophistocated styling and two toned colours.
The Motivo consists of two modular parts, ie an upper scooter chassis, and a base that provides propulsion via an electric motor and rechargeable batteries . (Picture from: Coroflot.com)
The Movito consists of two modular parts, ie an upper scooter chassis, and a base that provides propulsion via an electric motor and rechargeable batteries. The use of an in-wheel motor allows the scooter’s chassis to be slim, smoothly sculpted, and exceptionally lightweight.
The Motivo is designed as a self-contained unit, two bases also can be detached and aligned in parallel to create a two-seater vehicle. (Picture from: Coroflot.com)
Since the vehicle’s propulsion system is designed as a self-contained unit, two bases can be detached and aligned in parallel to create a two-seater vehicle resembled like a carriage without a horse. No wonder if the Movito called a classy and sexy, appealing to free spirited individuals.

Hades, an "expression of minimalism"

Former 'Confederate Motor,' which originally specialized in displaying V-Twin muscular motorbike products, later turned into an electric motorcycle manufacturer named Curtiss Motorcycle Company.
The bullet-shaped battery pack on the Hades protrudes phallically into the sacrilegiously empty space where the motor would sit on a combustion bike. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2PlHOUi)
This time through its latest work called Curtiss Hades concept and still displays an exotic muscular motorcycle model. Its design still faithful to its Confederate design styles, and the Curtiss Hades motorcycle also carried a V8 chopper style.

However, it is not the conventional engine cylinder in its configuration but the battery that is given a cover resembles a unique bullet-shaped. Its battery has a capacity of 16.8 kWh with a voltage of 399 VDC. That is the amount of electrical power sufficient to drive the Hades to run with power up to 217 horsepower, and torque of 199 Nm.

The shape of the motorcycle is really radical, so in the opinion of ordinary people is far from the impression of minimalism in its design. But this motorcycle designer argues otherwise. This radical form can be seen at the company's other "Radial V8" concept for its Zeus cruiser for another stellar example of a truly awesome-looking electric powerplant.
Curtiss's Zeus Radial V8 concept also does a stunning job of making the battery look amazing instead of depressing. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2zi6mmr)
JT Nesbitt, the designer of this electric-powered motorcycle stated, "It's a matter of how we value material in depth and fundamentals. The goal is to create a whole machine. It is also not a matter of how a motorcycle runs but also how it is constructed. So that each part has more roles. This is minimalism."
Leathery pads denote body contact points on the bike. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2PlHOUi)
Various opinions were successfully obtained from the Hades's unique appearance, both the pros and cons. In our opinion, this may be a quite revolutionary motorcycle shaped and deserves to be called a sexy motorcycle. Yes, because those an electric-powered motorcycle so that the appearance can be made at will. How about you? 
And reportedly, the Curtiss Hades will begin to be produced in 2020 and sold at a price of around US. $75,000 (or around Rp.1.125 Billion).

The futuristic biodynamic shaped truck by Luigi Colani

~Head to the Future~ The world's car manufacturers are now more ready to welcome the future. This can be seen at least from the design of their very futuristic concept cars, some even have out of the box designs. This is in line with the growing trend of environmentally friendly vehicles, not only for small-sized vehicles, but also for heavy-duty vehicles such as the trucks.
The Innotruck is designed by Luigi Colani, and intended to serve as both a test bench and a demonstration vehicle for a number of emerging technologies. (Picture from: Autoevolution)
And some of them come as custom models, as shown in the design of a unique future truck called the Innotruck built in collaboration the Siemens, the German's global technology company with designer Luigi Colani, TU Munich (Munich Technical University) and Marchi Mobile. As reported by Autoevolution, the futuristic truck concept was launched for the first time in 2012 at the MobiliTec international trade show in Hannover, Germany.
The Innotruck posed along with Luigi Colani, and as you can see here, the front of the truck gives a unique access for the driver get into the cockpit by sliding its glass nose. (Picture from: Bubblemania.fr)
At that time, the truck design had attracted the attention of many pairs of eyes. Once realized, this truck does look very futuristic. As we could be seen an aerodynamics truck-trailer-designed with the eco-friendly drivetrain and the energy management is another major goal of it. The creation of the Innotruck is also claimed to be an important part in the development of research on digitalization and electrification.
The Innotruck is also claimed to be an important part in the development of research on digitalization and electrification. (Picture from: Autoevolution)
Described as a "smart microgrid", the vehicle is capable of managing the energy flow not only from its battery, but also from on-board solar cells, wind turbines and regenerative brakes. It even has power outlets along its sides, so other vehicles can recharge when stationary and thus free up energy on the city grid. The point is to cut the inefficiencies of the existing system and could also be a mobile power plant for places where backup power is needed.
The front of the Innotruck has a unique design that resembles the nose of a fighter jet. (Picture from: Bubblemania.fr)
As quoted from Motor1, the Innotruck is claimed to be completely hand-built based on the Mercedes-Benz platform, and has a unique design on the front of the truck that resembles the nose of a fighter jet with the luxurious cabin. This is a truly unique and (potentially) revolutionary design that integrates the trailer as a component combined with the spaceship cockpit. The drive section rotates under the digital cockpit. 
The Innotruck also provided a beautiful living room behind the cockpit that caters to the needs of truckers in long distances traveling. (Picture from: Autoevolution)
Besides it looks futuristic, it has to be said, the almost entirely glass cockpit seems to provide exceptional sight lines to its driver. The car is integrated into the trailer section allowing the drivetrain to be placed under the drive independent of the trailer. Controls are in the cockpit reminiscent of a fighter jet with a large amount of glass allowing optimal visibility. This space is connected to a beautiful living room that caters to the needs of truckers in long distances traveling. To enter the cockpit area, the glass canopy opens and the driver enters.

The cab is connected to the drivetrain via driveby wire technology allowing easy integration into the trailer. Power comes from an electric motor powered by a diesel engine which is converted into a range extender duty. This allows for the most efficient powertrain that can still provide the distance needed to transport goods over long distances. Besides having an eccentric design and a unique drivetrain, plus its large size makes it not legal yet to use on the European Union roads.
Only two unit of the Innotruck have ever been made, and for those interested in having one of them, it sold on the JamesEdition website back in the 2020, but doesn't say how much it cost (certainly has an expensive price tag). This truck concept can be used as a show car for various business needs and educational programs or simply as a unique collectible items.
Besides the Innotruck, it turns out that the late Luigi Colani has also worked on several other truck designs in collaboration with many parties, ranging from automotive companies and other related institutions, as you can see here. Or You could be also seen another Colani's creation such Ferrari Testa D'oro from 1992.  *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | COLANI | JAMESEDITION | LUXURYAUTOCOLECTION | HOTCARS | MOTOR1 | BUBBLEMANIA | AUTOEVOLUTION ]
