These custom bodies consist of seven parts and have many rounded curves that are full of an old impression and a distinctive grille on the front that has been the hallmark of a BMW-made vehicle for a long time. Plus the installation of the headlights using a round model adds to the classic aura, with a small turn signal like a missile.
In addition, the housing for the turn signal lights and a new exhaust system which ends with a grill under the rear body is also made. (Picture from: GridOto)
For installation, it is necessary to make new front and rear subframes to support these large bodies. In addition, the housing for the turn signal lights and a new exhaust system which ends with a grill under the rear body is also made. Next, there are also old-style headlamps and front turn signal lights and a large windscreen.
The NMoto's Golden Age body kit is made only 100 units and available in two color options and four graphic schemes. (Picture from: GridOto)

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.

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]

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)

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.

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.
The Piaggio CT or Piaggio Carving Tool Concept is designed by Paolo Corcagnani back in the 2007. (Picture from: TopSpeed)
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.
The Piaggio CT or Piaggio Carving Tool Concept was inspired by the versatility of the US Army's original wartime Jeep. (Picture from: TopSpeed)
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.
The Piaggio CT has unique handlebaris that appeared in an unusual shape, like an iron rod that is bent in such a way as to form a unique handlebar. (Picture from: MotoBlog.it)
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).
