Vespa is a scooter and the company behind it, Piaggio, have been doing it for over seven decades. All’s good up till now, but have it ever occur to you, what if the Italian company dabbles in motorcycles making, you know, like say, a chopper, a sports bike, or even a dirt bike? At this point, you may be wondering. What the hell is the difference between a scooter and a motorcycle anyways? Well, get ready for Scooter 101. There are a few distinct differences between the two. First, motorcycle has the gas tank in front of the seat while the engine, typically attached to the frame, is right below it (the seat).

What happens when scrap Vespa turns up in a Vespa-loving design studio? Well, in the case of Spanish firm Bel&Bel, they decided to give it a fresh breath of life. But in this new life, this Vespa won’t be scooting along any road; instead it will be scooting around a home or office as a fully-functional and ergonomic swivel chair, dubbed Scooter Chair.

Vespa Suitcase: Bring a Piece of the Classic Vespa the Next Time You Jet Set

We can understand why sometimes luggages are marketed with cars, but a suitcase by a scooter maker like Vespa? Now, that’s pretty weird. However, we must say it is still an interesting proposition. One that would keep hardcore Vespa enthusiasts from missing their lovely Vespa when they are jet-setting. The Vespa Khaki Suitcase you see here is apparently an official Vespa merchandize, though we can spot in anywhere on the official Vespa site. I guess this is a pretty old product, but as far as style is concerned, it is still worthy of a mention. Unlike the recent luggages from a few independent makers we saw, there is nothing high-tech about this piece of travel gear. Instead, it offers you a piece of your favorite scooter, starting with the obvious: a shape that recalls the design of the front of the iconic two-wheeler.
