Vespa is taking a drastic move in a new direction but don’t worry, its iconic silhouette is preserved. First announced last year, Vespa will begin production of its first electric scooter this month and the new model will be available starting in October. Customers in Europe will get their hands on the new generation of Vespa scooters before these are made available in the U.S. and Asia. It’s not just the new electric drive that riders should look forward to with this forward-looking Vespa. The new electric scooter will also benefit from new tech that Vespa has developed including artificial intelligence systems that enhance the rider’s ability to sense potential dangers on the road. The smart upgrades also help provide real-time mapping and traffic data. Learn more from Vespa.
