First, the post of Sophia Loren made my day. Like Vespa,
an Italian classic beauty.
I say there are products necessarily defined for all income groups.
I do not have any animosity toward anyone who has done better
economically than I have. I am just lucky to be in a system that
lets me work as hard as I want to get ahead.
I think the 946 is amazing. So much so, I might have bought one.
I just needed the power and long legs of the GTS 300.
My blushing bride Understands my love of scooters. But, after
a new Dragon Red GTS300 and a new 2022 Kymco AK550, if
I bought the 946, she would have become a bit opinionated.
So, I think the 946 is great and not out of the reach of enthusiasts.
Our new scooter friend VespistX is German. Half my family is
German and can at times be blunt. I inherited this same trait,
which at times has not severed me well. He is a well Vespa traveled
and seems like a good soul. For someone who has traveled so
much sleeping on the ground in a tent, I expect he finds the 946
a bit extravagant.
Did not buy the 946 to stay in favor of "she who must be obeyed".
