Piaggio has brought the Limited Edition model of its popular scooter Vespa 946. This special scooter is made by Piaggio Vespa in association with the famous Parisian fashion house Christian Dior. It has been introduced under the name Vespa 946 Christian Dior Edition. This luxury scooter has been brought to give tributes to both these brands.
The Vespa 946 Christian Dior scooter is designed by Christian Dior’s Creative Director Maria Grazia Churi. It is offered in beige color with contrast blue leather seat. Gold finish has been given at other places including the scooter wheels, mirrors, handlebar and luggage rack. Optional accessories such as a half-face helmet, top box and bag are also available with this limited edition scooter, which carries the Dior oblique mark.
This special scooter is mechanically similar to the standard Vespa 946. It also has a 125cc, 3-valve, air-cooled engine with standard scooter, which generates 11.8hp power and 10.33Nm torque.
Vespa and Christian Dior are quite old and big brands. Both these brands were established in 1946. The company has not announced its price yet, but considering the two big brands, the price of this scooter is expected to be quite premium. It can be estimated that the Vespa Giorgio Armani, a similar limited edition scooter launched in 2016, was priced at Rs 12 lakh.
The sale of the Vespa 946 Christian Dior scooter will start in the international market from March 2021. It will be available at select Christian Dior boutiques and Piazzo Motoplex outlets. There is no announcement yet about its launch in India. However, it is believed that like the Giorgio Armani Edition, the Piazzo Vespa 946 Christian Dior can also launch the scooter in the Indian market.
