STYLE AND TECHNOLOGY THAT WILL REWRITE THE FUTURE

Just one look at the (VESPA 946) RED evokes memories of the inspiration and creativity that went into the original idea behind the Vespa. Just like the MP6 prototype from which it draws inspiration, the (VESPA 946) RED is the product of the most advanced technology currently available.

As per Vespa tradition, the bodywork is made of steel – on the (VESPA 946) RED this has been embellished with eye-catching aluminium components such as the mudguard and the side covers, which also serve to house and support the engine, the transmission, and all the scooter’s mechanical parts.

The aluminium mudguard at the front covers the 12-inch wheel with timeless elegance and is the same size as the rear cover. The detachable rims are made of an aluminium alloy. To ensure maximum safety, the brake system is of the double disc type and is complemented by a dual-channel ABS system.

The (VESPA 946) RED is equipped with innovative ASR traction control, an advanced electronic system that prevents the rear wheel from skidding. This technological refinement, exclusive to the Piaggio Group, prevents loss of grip and ensures superior traction at all times.

The beating heart of the (VESPA 946) RED is a 125 cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine with three valves, which is air-cooled and has an electronic injection system. This ultra-modern engine consumes minimal fuel, makes very little noise and boasts exceptionally low emissions levels.

The injection system is state of the art in terms of functionality and usability. The 3D curves for injection advance, quantity and timing are managed by a control unit of the latest generation.
