EMPORIO ARMANI has teamed up with Italian manufacturer Piaggio to launch the Vespa 946 Emporio Armani.

The new Vespa 946 Emporio Armani is the result of a collaboration which came about to mark the 130th anniversary of Vespa’s parent, the Piaggio Group, and the 40th anniversary of the Giorgio Armani label.

Meanwhile the number 946 refers to 1946, the year the Vespa, the world’s first moped scooter, was unveiled.

Like the clothing lines associated with the Emporio Armani label, the bike’s external appearance is chic and subtle. The color palette is a mix of grey and green earth tones and thanks to a clever galvanizing treatment the body panels take on a satin yet solid color finish that allows the green to shine through the darker grey tones.

Other external touches that mark the bike out as a special edition include the Emporio Armani Eagle logo above the headlight and subtle Armani branding on the sides.

As for the scooter itself, it is being produced in ‘strictly limited numbers’, each of which will be individually numbered and will be going on sale later this month. Prices are yet to be confirmed, but expect the Vespa 946 Emporio Armani to retail for €13,000 without accessories.
