After recently expanding its Vespa portfolio by launching the VX variant, Piaggio is planning something big for its scooter aficionados by launching the Vespa 946 by end of 2013. The 946 has to be one of the most radical scooters to be ever put to production and its retro-futuristic design gives an indication to the styling cues of future generation Vespas. The major design highlights of the 946 is its floating saddle which is hinged on a cast aluminium support, full LED headlamp and taillight and LCD instrumentation cluster.

The Vespa 946 is offered in two engine options, a 125cc and 150cc mill respectively, both of which employ 3-valves and fuel injection. The single-cylinder 125cc mill has a power rating of 11.9PS and 10.3Nm of torque. The flagship 150cc engine pumps out 13.2PS of power and a torque figure of 12.6Nm. Piaggio has loaded the 946 with electronic goodies like disc brakes at the front and rear with ABS (anti-lock braking system) and ASR (anti-slip regulator) Traction Control, which, with the aid of electronic system, helps the rear tyre from slipping.

 

The body of the 946 is crafted from welded steel, but for the first time in Vespa’s history they have employed aluminium components in the frame and mudguard to make the scooter lighter and durable. Also Read: Vespa VX: First Ride
