Underwhelmed with the appearance of the Piaggio MP3, designer Guillaume Noiseux and his father collaborated with Paul Deutschman for Sid Lee to make the chic-looking Cyclop Scooter. It takes the basic form with the two font wheels and a single rear tire but the body is rendered clean, streamlined and irresistibly smooth.

A glossy coat of white paint showcases the bulbous curves of the motorized tricycle, somewhat inspired by the original an iconic Vespa Piaggio. A plushy and richly red-colored seat gives the rider optimal comfort on a powerful compact commuter vehicle that's must safer to drive than most of its class.

A pair of rear-view mirrors gives the Cyclop Scooter an endearing buggy appearance on top of the ergonomic handlebars. An ocular headlight is mounted at the front of the machine, no doubt having influenced its name.
