The Vespa 946 Emporio Armani is the Italian marque’s flagship scooter developed jointly with fashion designer Giorgio Armani to commemorate 130th anniversary of the Piaggio Group. The limited production run of 946 units worldwide and the astronomical price tag of Rs 12.04 lakh make the Vespa 946 Emporio Armani one of the most exclusive scooters on sale.

The ‘946’ in the moniker refers to the year that this scooter was first made – 1946, while Emporio Armani is the name of the fashion house.
The curves, swoops and vents have evolved from the original Vespa, with features like LED lamps and a digital console giving it a modern touch.
The Vespa 946 Emporio Armani has an exclusive grey paint scheme with hints of green visible only under specific light conditions.
The leather seat, grips, rubber inserts on the floor and optional accessories like the leather bag are beautifully colour-coordinated.
Built on a monocoque platform, the Vespa 946 Emporio Armani is powered by a 125cc three-valve, fuel-injected single-cylinder engine.
Suspension duties are handled by an anti-dive single-sided suspension up front and a monoshock with adjustable preload at the rear.
Both the 12-inch alloy wheels get 220mm disc brakes with ABS as standard. It rides on 120/70 profile tubeless tyres.
While you might expect the Vespa 946 Emporio Armani to be loaded with accessories, the leather bag and helmet are optional extras.
