I knew this would happen
If you wanted a Vespa 946 but weren’t able to get one from the initial batch, you’re in luck! 🙂
Piaggio has announced a “2014 Collection” for this new Vespa 946, which is called the 946 Bellisima. You can get it in your choice of metallic gray with a red saddle, or light metallic blue with a gray saddle. That saddle has been lengthened, I suppose to better accommodate a passenger. Or just because. The accessory luggage rack is standard, and there are several other minor detail differences from the previous batch.
MSRP is $10,499. Uh-huh.
Dealer sources say there are only gonna be 100 available in the U.S., so if you want one you’d better contact your nearest dealer, like, RIGHT NOW!!!
This story appears to have been broken by French website Scooter-infos, but my attempts to view the site were unsuccessful, raising the question of whether this story crashed their server..?
I’m guessing a lot of folks who bought one of the earlier 946s thinking there would never be any more are going to be more than a bit… annoyed. This could get interesting.
