'Scooter Armor' turns your Vespa into an armadillo

If you've ever had a bike or scooter stolen, then you've probably shopped for elaborate locks and chains. Well, they don't get much more elaborate than Marc Graells Ballve's "Protect 486" scooter armor, which encases your vehicle in an anti-theft shell.

The armor is just a concept right now, though it could also be effective against protecting your vehicle from vandalism, cuts, scratches and the elements, besides simply rendering it inoperable. One wonders if it'd make your ride significantly heavier, though, and what would happen if someone did make the effort to bypass it — would you come back to a crumpled Vespa?
