Vespa has launched a limited edition 946 Dragon scooter in honour of Lunar New Year. To be priced from $22,600 ride away this rare bike is restricted to just 1888 units worldwide. It will arrive in Australia this month.
With its distinctly Italian style, Vespa has paired its design to capture the essence of the power of the dragon, a mythological creature that holds unparalleled force and is regarded as an omen of prosperity in Chinese culture.
Unveiled at a dedicated Lunar New Year celebration event in Hong Kong on January 24, the Vespa 946 is reimagined in a golden hue for the exclusive collector’s edition, and emblazoned with a vibrant emerald green dragon motif that snakes around the bike.
Hand-crafted in Italy and leveraging cutting-edge technology, the bold design of the Vespa 946 Dragon marks a coming together of cultures, innovation and sophistication. As is often the case, there’s also a fashion item.
An exclusive varsity jacket celebrates the legendary status of the iconic scooter, and features a ribbed wool and Nappa leather-sleeve, with a dragon motif in emerald green alongside prints and embroideries on the left pocket and back panel.
The jacket’s front panel features Vespa’s iconic V monogram accompanied by an ancient Chinese proverb. The exclusive collection, crafted from high-end materials and featuring innovative and luxurious details, echoes the bold ethos of the Year of the Dragon.
