Hope – Futuristic VX-1 Electric Maxi Scooter by Samuel Aguiar

Hope

Industrial designer Samuel Aguiar, with a specialization in car design, completely transforms Polish-made VX-1 Maxi Scooter into Hope. This custom motorcycle gets inspiration from iPhone, Porsche 356, Pokémon.
The repurposed Vetrix VX-1 maintains its original features, including 65Nm of torque, a top speed of 75 mph (120 kph) and a theoretical maximum range of 173 miles (280 km).

Hope

Aguiar began the initial sketches of the redesigned VX-1 ‘Hope’ four years ago before rending any 3D models. Then he used it to build the final form with laser-cut steel plates and modeling mastic fiberglass panels. The front and rear sections were painted black, while the center sections were wrapped in aluminum plates, riveted to the fiberglass. The dashboard surround was laser-cut from aluminum, and the inside of the steering cutout was molded from carbon fiber.
“Once the volume was defined, I had to find a nice melody between the seat, the lights, the dashboard and all the other elements,” Aguiar details. “It was important for me to stay very ergonomic and to make the design usable. This is where you decide whether to keep your idea in a sculptural state or to bring it to a functional state.”

Hope

The original 13”/14” wheels were replaced with a larger 17” combo, using a Suzuki GSF item up front, and a custom-made, three part aluminum design in the rear. The new wheels are kitted with a brembo brake system for more grab.
The charger was moved from the front to the top of the batteries, and the angle of the rear fan controller was tweaked to make space for the bigger wheel. What do you think?
