If Segway And Vespa Made A Baby

Two great inventions collide into one Centaur-looking beast. Well, the upper half of a Centaur. It also looks like a sea horse. That’s besides the point.

If $4,000 is chump change, put it down on these custom hand-made people movers. Catalonian designers Bel & Bel took actual Vespa scooter parts and mashed them up on the Segway PT. They call the end result the Zero Scooter.

It carries someone up to 400 lbs, hits a top speed of 12 mph and a range of about 20 miles. Be prepared to get plenty of attention on the streets.

Vespa 946: Scoot Pass The Gas Station

The Vespa 946’s ($TBA) single cylinder, 125cc, four-stroke engine delivers fuel economy (almost 130 miles per gallon) so robust, you may start to miss Slim Jims and Slurpees. With top-notch construction quality, ABS braking, ASR traction control, and trailblazingly reduced emissions, there’s at least a six pack of reasons to consider this scooter for your urban lifestyle. Ah yes, six packs; another thing you’ll have to add to your supermarket-not-gas-station shopping list.
