Part Electric Vespa, Part Origami Samurai Sword: STILRIDE

That’s not CGI, that’s the STILDRIDE SUS1– an all-electric scooter that combines origami engineering and classic Vespa style to deliver a ride like nothing else.

First shown back in 2020 as a pure concept, the STILRIDE SUS1 is the brainchild of Swedish industrial designer Tue Beijer, whose resume includes a stint working with legendary car designer Giotto Bizzarrini (designer of the iconic Ferrari 250 GTO– which, at $70 million, happens to be the world’s most expensive car). Beijer’s own love of Japanese art and old Vespa scooters drove him to design his own steel-bodied scoot, and that he calls “the most sustainable scooter ever.” And it looks— well, like the STILRIDE SUS1!

Beyond how it looks, we don’t know too much about specifics on the bike. Its designers claims the STILRIDE will be purely electric, and offer a 100 km top speed (62 mph) and about 120 km of range (75 miles) with DC fast-charging capability.

You can check out this four-minute documentary explaining Beijer’s design philosophy (complete with interpretive dance routines) below, then let us know what you think of the innovative new scooter concept in the comments section at the bottom of the page.
