Piaggio will be bringing in the Vespa 946 Emporio Armani (AE) edition as a CBU. The same was commissioned in 2015 to mark the 40th anniversary of Georgio Armani and the 130th anniversary of the Piaggio Group. Indeed it can't any more Italian than this!

With so much Italian on board, it has to come down to the details, and the Vespa 946 AE has plenty of them. It still includes the aluminium cladding but there a new satin finish has been produced using galvanic treatments when it comes to the finer details like hooks, carrier, the logo below the seat and much more.

Coming to the innards, the Vespa 946 AE is powered by a 125cc single-clyinder, four-stroke engine which packs in electronic injection. What you get is 11.7BHP of power and 10.3Nm torque. Being a new-age scooter, this one sticks to current day automatic transmission. Pricing details are expected to be announced at the launch event.
