Carbon Fiber Vespa Scooter at the Milan Design Week carbon fiber vespa gs scooter milan design week 2

When one talks about Milan, Italy, it envokes the idea of high fashion, models, runway exhibtions, and the yearly EICMA motorcycle expo. OK, that last one may only occur for the die-hard motorcyclists, but the rest hold fairly true for just about everyone else. The Milan Design Week is a celebration of both artistic and technical design, and this year, Bimota made some waves with its carbon clade DB7 Nerocaronio. But, carbon fiber Bimota’s are a dime a dozen these days.

What did make our heads turn was this carbon clad adventure of a Vespa VBB scooter. You know what they say about fat girls and scooters? Well if Big Bertha wore as much CF as this beauty, we’d ride her too.

The vintage Vespa VBB is completely covered in carbon fiber, and trimmed tastefully in Italian leather and whitewall tires. Making it one of the more high-tech, old-school pieces we’ve seen lately. Just 6 more months until the EICMA, we’ve booked our tickets, have you booked yours?

    Damn. Good eye. I had to look at photos for 10 minutes to see the subtleties between the two. Our source called it a GS, article edited.

    Thanks for the tip!
