Since its original launch in 2013, the Vespa 946 immediately became a worldwide object of desire and exclusivity. Vespa 946 was the worlds’ first Luxury scooter which combined premium materials with Italian artisan hand-made standards of manufacturing.
July 31, 2014. Vespa 946 Bellissima againredefines Luxury with attention to the highest standards in design, technical expertise and hand finished manufacturing. Limited to only 100 units, Vespa 946 Bellissima offers exclusivity and distinction in the unique way that only Vespa can. 946 Bellissima is equipped with a new mono-seat to further accentuate the dynamic curvature of the steel body, an exclusive chrome plated rear rack, new paint finishing and rim colors, as well as new handlebar grip finishing. The 2014 946 Bellissima collection will be available in either Metallic Gray and Metallic Blue.
As a gift, those select few 946 Bellissima purchasers will receive a passenger seat kit, realized in the same precious materials to match the on-board mono-saddle to perfectly complement the Bellissima design and allow for the rare occasions when a passenger is rewarded with a ride on this precious machine.
The Vespa 946 distills the essence of the early 1946 Vespa designs and beautifully combines the best features of the long history of cherished Vespa models.
