The history of art is the history of objects; above all, it is the history of ideas. In the Vespa 946, ideas acquire physical form in their own right. They begin as a pure expression of a style synonymous, in the minds of millions of travelers and devotees, with freedom of movement and expression. They develop into lines, shapes and colors that have more to do with design than industrial production. With the result that the Vespa 946 establishes new absolute aesthetic standards that have already gone down in the history of the two-wheeler.

Great design takes its inspiration from great ideas. There are two ways to break new ground. One approach is through continuity, the evolution of a successful idea. The opposite approach is to engineer innovative materials, which are then molded to the requirements of the designer. With the Vespa 946, Piaggio has successfully grafted welded steel and aluminum on to a bearing frame that has made history. The result is a triumph of lightweight aerodynamics, in a pure contemporary design.

Never let yourself be swayed by fluctuating fashions: this is the secret of the greatest designers. For this reason, the Vespa 946 enhances the classic values of tradition: the shape of the handlebar, the proportions of the fairing and the sheer curves of the two-seater saddle all take their cue from the earliest drawings. The only fluctuation allowed here is the personality of the rider: for people who prefer a purer sporty style, a simple gesture transforms the saddle into a single-seater. Aesthetic illumination turns into practical experience.

Truly successful design steers a course between technology and consumption, remaining true to its purpose. The Vespa 946 is rooted in the aerodynamics of the original MP6 prototype, yet it embraces the user-friendly focus of new millennium projects. Because the new concept in taste is not something that can be developed. It is simply achieved.

The Vespa 946, on the other hand, is art applied to mass production: from the press shop to tumble finishing, from the first stitching on the handle grips to the final polish, every process is performed by hand, as if the factory were an artist’s studio. Because the craftsman is an artist.

 

Italian two-wheeler manufacturer to outdo themselves as they undraped the Vespa 946 Belissimia. The Belissimia is that the 2014 edition of the retro-futuristic designed vespa 946 scooter that was launched last year within the European market and was showcased at the 2014 automobile expo.

The major style highlight of the 946 was its floating saddle and designers have any honed it by providing a additional chiselled and compact saddle on the Vespa 946 Belissimia.

The new saddles style endows the rider a possibility of a mono-seat or a twin-seat. different updates embrace chrome plated rear rack alongwith new reminder tinny Blue and tinny grey. the complete crystal rectifier headlamp, indicators and rear lamp and full-digital LCD instrumentation cluster has been preserved on the Belissimia.

Also the Vespa 946 Belissimia are offered with a rider kit that has been designed by Vespa to match the color of the saddle and gel with the profile of the scooter.

Powering the Vespa 946 Belissimia could be a 155cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected motor churning out 13.2PS of peak power and force rating stands at twelve.6Nm. Piaggio has loaded the 946 with electronic goodies like disc brakes at the front and rear with ABS (anti-lock braking system) and ASR (anti-slip regulator) Traction management, which, with the help of electronic system, helps the rear tyre from slippy.

The body of the 946 is crafted from welded steel, except for the primary time in Vespa’s history they need utilized metallic element parts within the frame and mudguard to form the scooter lighter and sturdy.

To maintain exclusivity, the Vespa 946 are restricted to simply a hundred units and it wouldn’t be low-cost by any suggests that.
