Piaggio’s over ambitious attempt to sell a scooter in India asking for over Rs. 12 lakh has now come to an end. The Vespa 946 Emporio Armani version has now been discontinued in India. Having been on sale for almost a year, the Vespa 946 Emporio Armani failed to find a single buyer.

The primary reason for being discontinued is not that there were no buyers, but because the contract with Armani has now come to an end. So, this scooter will no longer be available, and mostly likely, won’t return to your nearest showrooms.

Powering the Vespa 946 is a 125,cc, 4-Stroke, 3V engine producing 11.95 PS of power and 10.3 Nm of torque matched to the automatic CVT gearbox.

The overall packaging though was very attractive. The Vespa 946 looked rather good, and stylish by scooter standards. If at all a single unit was sold here in our market, it would have been quite something as this scooter would have become the most exclusive two-wheeler in our country.
