A CAPSULE COLLECTION DEDICATED TO THE VEHICLE THAT REVOLUTIONISES THE URBAN MOBILITY LANDSCAPE
HELMETS, BACKPACK, RIDER'S GOGGLES AND VEHICLE ACCESSORIES FOR AN ICONIC AND CONTEMPORARY LIFESTYLE
Continuous technological and style innovation by the Piaggio Group is perfectly reflected in the accessories capsule collection dedicated to the vehicle destined to revolutionise personal urban mobility landscape: Vespa Elettrica. Vespa Elettrica is the future that exists in the present, interpreting electric mobility in an appealing and original way, as only a modern icon can, by combining the classic design that has made it world famous with the very latest technologies. Ecological, silent, rich in style and technologically advanced, Vespa Elettrica proves unique and inimitable, injecting its lifestyle spirit into this elegant and contemporary total look collection, comprising dedicated helmets, backpack, rider's goggles and vehicle accessories.
All accessories in the Vespa Elettrica collection guarantee maximum safety, protection and functionality. Vespa Elettrica and its collection of accessories share a unique creative vision, whose stand-out pieces are the backpack with LED piping, the helmets – in a Tech version with integrated Bluetooth or a personalised Jet – and the unmistakably stylish rider's Goggles.
The accessories boast a simple, clean design, integrating technological elements in an original take on “clean technology”, a concept that characterises Vespa Elettrica. For example, the Vespa Elettrica finishing, available in 7 different colours (electric sky blue, copper, chrome, lightning yellow, boreal green, deep black and smoke black), counterbalances with the personalisation of the fastening rings that enhance the visor of the Vespa Jet Special Edition helmet. Added to this is a Tech version, complete with details to match the vehicle and a Bluetooth multimedia system. Both Vespa Elettrica collection helmets, homologated in accordance with the strictest safety standards, take up the colour of the metallic-effect chrome grey finish that makes the Vespa Elettrica chassis so very elegant.
The dedicated backpack is made of an innovative reflective fabric complete with LED piping, which integrates perfectly into the design of this special lifestyle accessory, the light functions of which can be configured via an app.
The special hi-tech Jet helmet, which takes up the vehicle's livery with a finish in the colour chosen by the customer, marries style and the utmost practicality, with integrated Bluetooth headphones in order to maximise connectivity potential. The shell in ABS – a thermoplastic material that allows for the creation of objects that are both resistant and lightweight - makes for a comfortable, functional and original looking helmet, enhanced by its solid colour and chrome details in perfect Vespa Elettrica style. The Tech helmet, with integrated Bluetooth and an inner in hypoallergenic fabric, is available in either a silver/sky blue or silver/copper colour combination and extends its technology and connectivity characteristics with a wide range of functions that include: two stereo earpieces, a rider/passenger intercom with pairing to other devices, an integrated microphone with micro USB port, a single intuitive button on the microphone, red/blue LED lights on the microphone to indicate system status, a double connection function (in addition to a mobile phone, another device can be connected via Bluetooth) and vocal command call pick-up.
The Goggles, which can be paired with the helmet, stand out for their mirrored lenses and other brand-new details. The lens is in anti-fog and anti-scratch polycarbonate with an acetate profile, while the inner part is particularly comfortable thanks to the use of a very resistant, high-grip expanded polyurethane foam combined with hypoallergenic fabric. Lastly, the elasticated strap has practical nylon adjustment buckles to match the lens surround and a fastening finished in high-vis reflective material, particularly useful for night-time riding.
Another new product is the original, modular backpack with LED piping, composed of an internal bag for the top box, a back protector, and a detachable helmet bag. It also includes a dedicated compartment for a notebook as well as a power bank for the recharging of portable devices.
A modular system makes this an eclectic, triple-function accessory: a top box bag (which can be folded to be easily packed away), a back protector (certified and incorporated in the bag's base) and a removable mesh helmet bag. This special accessory is created in high-resistance nylon with water-repelling treatment and features rubber-coated zips with personalised Vespa horn cover zip pulls and elegant LED piping, integrated into the design of the backpack. It makes good use of technology in its electronic and connective functions, thus reflecting the innovative spirit of Vespa Elettrica. The backpack is in fact a “smart” object that allows for the recharging of any connected devices and the LED lights, which can be personalised along with the on/off functions via the dedicated app. The lights take the shape of indicators in that they are automatically activated via a smartphone's movement sensors. The backpack's operating system, connected to the phone, communicates with the smartphone via Bluetooth thanks to an app that allows for control of the lights, particularly useful when it comes to the safety of commuters.
In addition to these stylish Vespa Elettrica accessories, there is a wide range of more functional accessories, such as a top box, windscreen, luggage rack, protectors, side stand, mittens and leg covers.
The top box is painted to match the vehicle and enhanced with the famous Vespa logo, raised and chrome-plated. It can accommodate a full-face helmet. The top box can be completed with a backrest, upholstered in the same material as the seat. The chrome-plated support on which the top box is mounted can also be used as a luggage rack.
Maximum protection is guaranteed thanks to the windscreen, in high quality anti-splinter methacrylate, personalised with the Vespa logo. Vespa Elettrica can also be fitted with a top fairing - available in either a transparent or smoke material - that elegantly completes the front of the vehicle.
A classic Vespa accessory, front and rear chrome luggage racks are also available for Vespa Elettrica. Front/rear perimeter and mudguard chrome guards elegantly finish the vehicle and protect the bodywork.
Further enriching Vespa Elettrica is the practical side stand in black painted steel, to facilitate parking, indoor and outdoor "big logo" vehicle covers, both with practical openings to accommodate any accessories, and the anti-slip rubber mat.
The essential mittens and leg cover are practical, easy to fit, and made of thermal material to provide excellent protection from the weather. The Vespa Elettrica leg cover bears a metal Vespa logo and provides maximum stability even at high speeds.
Vehicle accessories will be available during 2019 at a select network of dealerships. The helmets, backpack and rider's goggles will also be available online at store.vespa.com
