Segways aren't exactly stylish vehicles, but a Spanish custom scooter shop has gone about fixing this by employing the distinctive styling of Vespa.

The new, custom-inspired, Vespa Segway is a sight to behold and has been creating scooter fever in the world of weirdly wonderful custom bikes.

Also known as the Zero scooter, this Vespa Segway has been specially built by hand and has been designed with Vespa scooter panels.

Stylish looking with a fun, quirky element, this scooter is ready-made to order and even has customisable colours, logos as well as vinyl available for interested customers, at an extra cost.

Reaching a top-speed of 12.5mph, the Zero scooter has a range of 18-22 miles per charge from its lithium batteries and has got to be a fun ride for anyone.

The scooter also weighs only a mere 51kg but is capable of carrying loads of more than twice its weight.

However, the most exciting feature about this bike is that each wheel has a 1.34hp electric motor, which enables it to turn on the spot.

It is also the only scooter that can climb up to a 30 degree incline.

According to the Barcelona-based designers of the scooter, Bel&Bel, the Zero scooter can be mastered in just ten minutes.

They also claim that the scooter can be ridden by people of different heights due to the adjustable steering column.

This unique scooter is available from Maxihobby for £2,445 and comes with a five-year warranty. So why not hop on? This is one ride that will definitely turn heads.
