Vespa 946 Emporio Armani Design

The Vespa 946 Emporio Armani is an exquisite piece of art. It seems to come straight out of a Richie Rich comic! The style is completely retro and exudes beauty and class from every angle. It is based on the 1940’s era, during the time of the World War II.  This scooter will come in a dark shade of matte grey colour, called the Armani Grey. It has a slight tinge  green that shows only under specific lighting conditions. The entire scooter is painted in Armani Grey and it goes well with the retro styling of the Vespa 946, further enhancing its appeal. The seat trim, grips are pure leather ones and are carefully crafted. There will be an optional leather bag available too. It gets magnificent 12-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels. The fit finish and quality is top notch. The switch gear quality is excellent too.
