Vespa and Dior team up to make the 946 Christian Dior scooter

Iconic scooter manufacturer Vespa and up-market clothing brand Dior have built a scooter!

TWO Italian giants of design have joined forces with Vespa and Dior teaming up to make the Vespa 946 Christian Dior.

The bike is a stock Vespa 946 that first saw the light of day at the EICMA show in Milan in 2012, first hitting the streets in 2013. The Christian Dior special edition version of that machine is a collaboration between Vespa and the Dior creative department. It features a unique colour scheme and gold embellishments dotted around the bike as well as subtly placed Christian Dior logos.

The saddle is in real blue-leather with ton sur ton seams; the handles are covered with blue- leather and the seams are ton sur ton. The saddle support is realized with a “Dior Monogram” original fabric upholstery. On the right side of the vehicle, there are some exclusive decal with the “Christian Dior Paris” logo, although on the left side there is the possibility to personalize it. The hook placed under the saddle has the exclusive “Christian Dior” logo.

The luggage and bags seen in the above picture are all available separately and exclusively from Christian Dior boutiques.

Beneath the exotic-looking exterior, the Vespa 946 is powered by a single-cylinder 125 cc four-stroke, three-valve, air-cooled engine with electronic injection.
