Vespa 946 at EICMA 2012

The EICMA 2012 show opens in Milan on the 15th of November. The new Vespa 946 (called just 46 or Quarantsei last year) will hit the stands. Piaggio will obviously build it then. The design echoes of the Vespa prototype MP6, the 98 and a hint of Utlitaria (if you´re asking me).
The engine will be a 125 cc, fourstroke, 3-valve, electronic injection and producing a  healthy 11,7 hp at 8 250 rpm. Additions to last years concept model is the mirrors and the turn signals. According to Piaggio they start selling it in July 2013.
I'm still doubtful of the saddle though. Maybe it looks better "in the flesh".
