For a Limited Time Only, The Vespa 946.

Since it’s beginnings Vespa has always had a distinct look and classic design lines. The new limited edition Vespa 946 is no exception to the rule. This striking redesign of this scooter maintains the classic look with updated details across the bike.

The dynamic lines, the distinct proportion of the fairing, the sweep of the handle bar, the single round tail light all come from some of the earliest Vespa drawings. The 946 is hand built with an attention to detail and a craftsman’s approach to build quality. Every detail reflects a choice and a reference to Italian-style production.

Limited batch of 3,600 units for all markets worldwide, the production of which in the Pontedera factory will terminate with the month of November. The 946 is priced out at $ 9,946.00 which will probably limit some sales, but if you want one you better not wait much longer.

Vespalogy from Nomoon Creative.

Here’s to Friday, here’s to summer, here’s to Vespa. I think all three go together so well. Nothing says lazy summer day to me like getting on a vintage Vespa and spending a warm sunny day scooting about town having fun.

French creative agency Nomoon has put together a fantastic little animated short that chronicles the history of Vespa scooters from the 1940’s through the present day. The short film has some great, simple animation combined with tight illustrations of the scooters themselves. Someone at Nomoon is obviously a scooter fan and knows Vespas. What a great tribute to the long standing king of Italian motor scooters.
