In 1946, Piaggio released the Vespa, it has become an icon since. Today it is popular in the world it still is produced in a variety of models including electric. But, Indian based design consultancy firm Mightyseed has a render that merges the classic with the modern and gets it ready for the future, they call it the Vespa 98 concept.

A self started in-house project the Vespa 98 was inspired from the Corradino Vespa and only the Corradino Vespa. Then they added a bit of minimalism to make it look modern. The design features strip LED headlights, indicators and LED ribbed taillights. It also features a handlebar stip display that shows all the essential readings required by the rider - speed, distance, (from looking at picture) mode of riding. All futuristic items which are very cool.

The design is also a message, as told by Mightyseed's Co-Founder and Principal Design Engineer - Adithyan G, it is a message of hope of a brighter sustainable future based on what our predecessors donate to our society.
