Giorgio Armani has been pulling out all the stops in celebration of its 40th anniversary. From a swanky exhibition to a posh gala, the Italian brand continues to remind fashionistas around the world why we fell in love with the brand in the first place. To continue making a splash, Armani has teamed up with Italian brand two-wheeled motor-vehicles manufacturer Piaggio to launch the Vespa 946 Emporio Armani.
Like Armani’s haute designs, the new Vespa is quite chic. It features a gray color palette with subtle hints of green. The two-wheeled motor vehicle is finished with matte metallic details obtained through galvanic treatments and a plush brown leather seat and it’s equipped with state-of-the-art electronic driving controls.
The Vespa is also equipped with a four-stroke electronic injection engine. There is a 220mm double disc brake, two-channel ABS braking system and large 12 inch wheels to ensure highest level of safety on the road.
Piaggo’s logo appears on the side of the scooter, while Armani’s iconic eagle logo appears above the headlight.
The fashion label first introduced a special version of the haute scooter with Piaggio back in 1946, hence the name Vespa 946.
In addition, the Vespa was created in celebration of Piaggio’s 130th anniversary.
The Vespa 946 Emporio Armani is available as a limited edition. It is slated to go on sale this month at retailers in major cities worldwide.
