It is sitting in my garage and it is gorgeous. It came from Rockridge Two Wheels. Sadly, I'm sick with a cold so I can't take it for a spin, but it really is something else.

I really wouldn't want to be the one responsible for getting someones new 946 off the back of a pick-up; that photo (with it being slightly blurred) looks like an action shot of him slipping and dropping the bike, maybe a camera that can capture your worst nightmares

Nice bike mate, enjoy 8)

I got to say I love the look of the 946
I'd like one, even though in honesty it's very expensive I think
But my only wish is that they made one with a decent sized engine,
I.e. At least a 200 or 300cc
Sadly a 125c, of me, would be an utter waste of time, who wants to sit on 10 grands worth of scooter doing 45mph flat out

Come on vespa, have some ambition

They go a bit faster than that! Even the old X9 125 did 70 (GPS) and could stay there all day ... on the flat.

I don't know what the spec top speed of the 946 is is - has anyone measured one in the flesh?

I was fortunate enough to ride one the other day, as I am looking at the possibility of buying one. It did a GPS confirmed 59, I wasn't exactly trying too hard to hit maximum speed but I'd venture it had a couple more MPH in it based on hearing it revv out. The engine is insanely smooth I will say that.

Flash Gordon!

P.S. I don't mean to be impertinent; but when I put those houses in the background together with a podcast I just heard on San Francisco housing prices, I'm not that worried in your case about affordability.

It costs no more then a small car, (and probably less than a Lambretta SX200 or Vespa GS160). If I had a bit more spare cash, I'd possibly get one, but that wouldn't make me David Beckham or an oil sheik! They look smashing

Agreed. I haven't tried to top the speed out yet, but have had no trouble getting to 59/60 range.
...and yes, the ride is sooo smooth! Love it

I had the privilege of testing a 946 for a few weeks.

With a GPS on a flat at 71mph.

The fastest I have gotten it down hill was 78mph.
