Vespa goes swimming

Inspired from the legendary Vespa 50 special from the 60’s: the Jet Vespa

Must Have for Summer 2019

As Designer Pierpaolo Lazzarini’s watchword is „Think about the Future and never forget the past“ his Lazzarini design studio imagined a fusion between a modern Jet Ski and a Vespa 50 special from the 60’s. The result a vespa shaped jet ski. The water vehicle, conceived for recreational purpose its made of fiberglass and allows speeds up to 30 knts.
While the vehicle is not running, to facilitate the accommodation/access of the passengers, a gimbal self balancing system keeps the jet vespa aligned with the water surface.

Lazzarini propose the water toy in two variants :
equipped with an electric 39hp engine for $ 25.000 or equipped with a 330cc 39hp twin stroke engine for $ 19.000

Both variants will be able to reach a maximum speed of 32 knts with an estimated autonomy of 3 operating hours for the electric version. Pre-orders are welcome with first deliveries by summer 2019.
