This is the last of our jewel-encrusted coverage, we promise. But we just had to tell you about one more blinged out item: the custom Kymco scooter, which is bedazzled with 100,000 Swarovski crystals.
The Taiwanese scooter named "Mitch" was unveiled at the 37th Tokyo Motorcycle show at Tokyo Big Sight on March 26. While other motorcycle companies introduced impressive new models -- KTM debuted an electric "zero emission" motorcycle -- Kymco's sparkly scooter drew the most attention from onlookers.
And who could blame them? With that many Swarovski crystals, we wouldn't have been able to take our eyes off of it either. As you can see, "Mitch" not only rocks clear crystals, but has butterfly and flower patterns made of colored crystals as well.
While we aren't feeling the overpriced diamond iPad and diamond cell phone, we think this scooter is cool because it's more of a piece of art than an unnecessarily expensive gadget. As far as we know, "Mitch" is one-of-a-kind and not in mass production, so we're happy to admire it from afar instead of feeling like we have to buy into it.
