Vespa 946 Emporio Armani: Fashionistas, Your Scooter Is Here

Since its release two years back, the Vespa 946 has held its place as the top-of-the-line scooter in Piaggio’s lineup. So if you were a fashion icon looking to drape your brand on a two-wheel utility ride, the 946 had to be your model of choice. And here we have that in the form of the new Vespa 946 Emporio Armani.

A collaboration between the two iconic Italian brands, the new scooter takes the 946’s original design and dresses it in Armani’s signature touches. From the subdued color palette to the visible branding to the sportier saddle, it gives the limited edition model a clean, identifiable style all its own.

The Vespa 946 Emporio Armani is clad in a special combination of gray shades, with subtle hints of green that are only visible in certain light conditions. All the metal parts are produced using galvanic treatments and topped with a satin finish, creating a contrasting effect with the rest of the body’s finishing touches. Most of the scooter is just like any standard 946, with a four-stroke 125cc engine, aluminum cylinder blocks, electronic riding controls, double disk brakes, two-channel ABS braking system, and large 12-inch wheels. Other features include brown leather finishes and special luxury accessories.

Slated to go on sale in June, the Vespa 946 Emporio Armani will be available as a limited edition release. No pricing was announced.

    This is such a sweet ride! Wow, it’s so intricately detailed and looks like it’s made from such durable quality materials. Only expect the best with Armani I guess. Never knew they made vehicles, but it’s never too late to start! The leather and hand finish look amazingg. But with it being less than 150CC, I still wouldn’t pay a dime over $1,700 for it. Thats just me, and for big products theres always big-spenders somewhere one way or another. The 12″ wheels are pretty solid looking. Do they offer a good warranty since it’s Armani, or is it made and covered by a third party or external manufacturer? Love the luxury features!

    yeah this is definitely a first, never heard of Armani making vehicles. i wonder if they’ll make boats too like aston martin recently did? the brown leather finish looks so fancy! the model number is so high, so was there ones before this? id love to rent one of these to adventure around the big city with, but probably wouldn’t be willing to invest any substantial amount of money into owning one of these. besides, the winters here wouldn’t allow it! 🙁

    i really love this! but i also get the impression that this is more of a woman style. its really nice, but then again it seems to be made a lot like all of the other scooters–as i personally own one to date. i don’t really see the great difference between this scooter, minus the leather and minor enhanced craftsmanship and logo, versus the atypical ones you would buy otherwise. a brand name goes a long way, and something tells me this one won’t be cheap, nice though!
