Vespa 946


Set to be the show stopper of this years Eicma event in Milan. Initial details are already being released to the Italian press.

We all remember this one from last years show. The 946 concept was released with ample fanfare surrounding this model. Talk of a production model soon followed and before too long Piaggio was needing to declare its hand. Well, here is the first production photo released. Below I have placed the concept version below the production version so you can see the difference.

The design itself is a cracker from every angle. Piaggio are also using this model to showcase a host of technological advancements. The use of aluminium in the construction to reduce weight. The addition of ABS brakes and ASR(traction control). The use of Piaggio's latest 125 cc, 3 valve engine technology that produces fuel economy figures in the range of 55km/l.

Further details of this model will no doubt be released as the show gets underway on the 15th of November . Get the cash ready, we know that Piaggio Australia will bring these into the country, all be it in limited numbers. I'd expect demand to far exceed supply.
