Italian accessories brand Kappa has launched a range of chic fabric bags to give some light luggage capabilities to classic Vespa scooters. There are four bags in the range, each available in a choice of 600D polyester or PU leather with contrast stitching decoration.
The largest bag is the 14.5 litre tunnel bag, which clamps to the scooter’s bodywork between the rider’s feet using a quartet of magnets. It has an inside pocket for documents and comes with an adjustable shoulder strap. SRP is €169, or €189 for the PU leather version. The similarly capacious “Rugby” tunnel bag is the most distinctive bag in the range thanks to its oval shape, which allows it to nestle into the central tunnel of the bike where a pair of winglets equipped with powerful magnets holds it securely in place. It features two side pockets, shoulder strap and a carry handle. SRP is €139 or €149.
Aping the looks of a rack-mounted spare wheel, the circular “Spare” bag has a 10 litre capacity and fixes to the rear rack using adjustable straps. SRP is €99 or €119. At the opposite end of the scooter, the little 4 litre day bag has numerous pockets and compartments for everyday stuff, and a pair of magnets to secure it to the front of the fairing. SRP is €69 or €79.
