Scooter manufacturer Piaggio USA on Wednesday announced the launch of its new summer clothing line under the Vespa brand.

The company said the vintage-inspired collection, available at Vespa outlets and online, is a first for Vespa and will include casual wear and accessories for men and women.

"While we think Vespa riders will love the clothes, we also think it's perfect for those who are just looking for something unique to wear," said Patrizia Caretti, Piaggio USA brand manager.

"Our new line was created to embody the fun and uniqueness of the Vespa lifestyle while showcasing our heritage and the mystique of the Vespa brand."
