GIORGIO ARMANI PRESENTS THE NEW VESPA 946 EMPORIO ARMANI…

Vespa 946 Emporio Armani was developed jointly by Giorgio Armani and Piaggio to celebrate two of Italy’s most established symbols of style and creativity.

To mark the year 2015 – the 40th anniversary of the foundation of Giorgio Armani and the 130th birthday of the Piaggio Group – Emporio Armani has designed a special version of the Vespa 946. In keeping with Armani’s signature subdued colour palette, the designer has come up with a special combination of greys with subtle hints of green visible only under particular light conditions for the project.

The name ‘Vespa 946’ alludes to the year – 1946 – that this scooter, which has become iconic and famous around the world, was first made. The design of the new Emporio Armani is a modern reinterpretation of the original Vespa style.

The metallic parts have been treated in order to convey a matt effect in line with the body finishings.The words ‘Emporio Armani’ appear on the side, while the iconic eagle logo of the brand sits above the headlight.

The Vespa 946 Emporio Armani is about technology as well as style. Its aluminium cylinder blocks, brown-leather finishes, luxury accessories, electronic riding controls (which also interface with the latest Internet devices) complement the innovative four-stroke electronic injection engine, whose enhanced fuel economy and minimal emissions make this two-wheeler the ideal choice for city riding. The 220 mm double disc brake, two-channel ABS braking system and large 12 inch wheels guarantee maximum safety on the road.

The Vespa 946 Emporio Armani will be produced in an exclusive run of individually numbered scooters, and will be on sale in the world’s most important cities starting from June.



2016 Vespa 946 Emporio Armani www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

Back from the future

The essentiality of the design endows even the most impersonal function with style and individuality. The Vespa 946 is a pure expression of a style synonymous, in the minds of millions of travellers and devotees, with freedom of movement and expression. A far-sighted projection of sustainable mobility, whose form and substance crystallise the fundamental aesthetic and dynamic values of the history of the two-wheeler.

INSTINCTIVELY AWARE

Great ideas move the world. Keeping faith with those ideas is the only way to progress.
As the Vespa 946 has done: turning the bearing structure of the original model into a lighter, more aerodynamic version with a welded steel and aluminium monocoque frame. From the saddle support to the inserts on the side panels, every centimetre has a detail of excellence to attract the eye.

ECO-SUSTAINABLE BY VOCATION

The way to guard against imitations is to look beyond the immediate future. The Vespa 946 has ABS braking and ASR traction control.

The 4-stroke 125 cc monocylinder engine is a response to requirements that may still be nascent. And it guarantees the best performance in its category. Electronic injection, three-valve distribution, reduced friction and improved fluid dynamics sharply reduce consumption and emissions, establishing a new benchmark over and beyond current regulations.

 

ETERNAL INNOVATION

Every evolution is necessarily rooted in its origins. A glance at the 946 recalls the flair and inventive capacity that generated the original idea for the Vespa. Behind the stunning lines of the first scooter with a monocoque frame lies state-of-the-art technology, designed for user- and eco-friendly progress. Like the MP6 prototype from which it takes its inspiration, the Vespa 946 seems to have been generated directly from aeronautics and the leading technology of its time. A dynamic model for the start of a new age.

ABSOLUTE PERFECTION

Perfection is a way of being

It stems from the constant pursuit of harmonious lines and is nourished by attention to the smallest details. Perfection is reflected in people’s gaze: when they admire me, but, above all, when they think about me.


UNIQUE ITALIAN STYLE

Elegance is a virtue that eludes most people

Natural and parsimonious, it has energy and a silky, clear-cut flair. There are moments when a singular manifestation of beauty goes beyond every definition. It is instantly recognisable. That’s why I’m here, right now.

MANU FACTO

A distinctive mark

In Ancient Rome, when the hands of an artisan left a distinctive mark, it was called Manu Facto. But when art engages with mass production, new stylistic features emerge.: everything really is done by hand, just as it is in a fashion atelier.

TIMELESS ICON

A form for eternity in the two wheel world

That for six centuries, and who knows how many millions of years before that, everyone has tried to offer humanity a definitive form, is an hypothesis. That I established a form for eternity in the two-wheeler world, a fraction of a second after my appearance, is a certainty.
