Vespa first announced the forthcoming release of its 946 at EICMA in 2012, with styling inspired by the company’s Mp6 prototype of 1946. Despite its nostalgic heritage it was a machine complete with up-to-date technology, including a newly designed three-valve Single with EFI, and electronic goodies included traction control and ABS.
Vespa retains all the features of the 946 in the Bellissima edition, but swaps the stock perch for a mono-seat and adds a chrome-plated rear rack, new paint and rim colors as well as an updated handlebar grip finish. Buyers will also receive a passenger seat kit, so riding two-up can remain an option.
Despite the updates, the Bellissima edition MSRP remains the same as the standard 2014 946 at $10,499.
