Piaggio Typhoon, a young, practical and fun scooter, has by now established itself as the Piaggio best-seller. Revamped in terms of aesthetics and technical content, it is now fitted with a new and brilliant 50 2-stroke Euro 4 engine with an electronically controlled carburettor.
The new air cooled single-cylinder is a modern, ecological and quick powerplant, the best solution for a brilliant and fun ride in the day to day metropolitan jungle. Numerous upgrades allowed it to comply with the Euro 4 standard without detracting from the well-known features of rideability and practicality in all conditions. The fuel line benefits from a new, electronically managed carburettor: the fuel-air mixture is dosed out by a solenoid valve controlled by the engine ECU, which is also new, allowing for more efficient mapping. This is joined by an optimised cylinder diagram and a new exhaust line, now equipped with a double catalytic converter and double secondary air device.
Piaggio Typhoon has a sporty nature, yet at the same time is reliable, functional and comfortable. The new analogue/digital instrumentation is filled with information including an analogue speedometer, LCD display with total and trip odometer, fuel level indicator and clock. The series of indicator lights include: fuel reserve light, turn indicator lights, high beam indicator, oil level warning light and check engine warning light.
Ride comfort benefits from having a saddle made of a new material, enhanced with red stitching and the Piaggio logo. The passenger also has larger grab handles and dedicated, fold-away footrests. The gold coloured front brake calliper and the new exhaust silencer cover give Piaggio Typhoon an even more dynamic look and are a testament to the great attention to every detail. In the helmet compartment, spacious enough for a full-jet helmet, there is a very convenient USB port for recharging a smartphone or other mobile devices.
The front of Piaggio Typhoon boasts innovative aesthetic solutions: the “shark nose”, a distinctive trait of the young scooter from the Pontedera-based manufacturer, is imposing and large; the wide slots, a “must” on the Piaggio Typhoon, are spaced on the side of the leg shield to follow the profile of the new front light assembly, “the eyes” of Typhoon, aggressive and dynamic. The 12” wheel rims ensure better absorption of bumps in the road, as well as greater stability. Piaggio Typhoon stands out for its dedicated graphics: trendy and fashionable to satisfy the tastes of the very young or sombre and elegant for the adult public.
