The Piaggio Typhoon 125 has received a few upgrades which help it remain at the same level with its rivals. The main modification is represented by the redesigned 125 cc 4 stroke engine which received a boost of power and improved efficiency (90 mpg). The new generation has also received a few design upgrades as well as fresh 12 inch wheels which are wrapped in all terrain tires. The new engine is mated on the company’s automatic “twist ‘n go” transmission.

The company’s engineers have also improved the scooter’s ergonomics. Therefore you get a longer, wider and lower seat which improves the riding position. Moreover, you can also find a pretty large storage place under the seat.

The Piaggio Typhoon 125 has a claimed top speed of 60 mph and is offered with a starting price of $2699.

Piaggio’s MP3 models are without a doubt the most interesting scooters from the road. They attract instant attention thanks to their innovative three wheels design which not only gives them a unique appearance but also makes them safer and more stable than any regular two wheel scooter.

The Piaggio MP3 400 is powered by a 400 cc, liquid cooled four-stroke, four-valve engine with fuel injection. The motor puts out 34 hp at 7,500 rpm, while the maximum torque is rated at 38 Nm at 5,500 rpm. The stopping power is assured by front and rear disc brakes combined with twin piston calipers.

One of the unique functions offered by the Piaggio MP3 400 is a locking mechanism that allows you to lock the font suspension while parked or at a stop light. Needless to say, it’s also pretty comfortable thanks to its spacious seat, the ergonomic handlebar and the comfort-tuned suspensions.

The Piaggio MP3 250 is the smallest scooter in the MP3 lineup. Like its bigger siblings the MP3 250 has a three wheels configuration with two wheels up front and one at the rear. The front wheels are combined with an electro-hydraulic tilt system which allows each of them to act independently based on how much the scooter leans, which result in higher levels of grip and a decreased braking distance.

The scooter is powered by a four-stroke, four-valve liquid-cooled engine from the Aprillia Scarabeo 250 i.e which meets the Euro3 emission standards. The company says that its four stroke engine delivers a fuel economy of approximately 4.3L per 100 km.

The MP3 250 sits on 12 inch front and 14 inch rear wheels which are combined with 240 mm stainless steel disc brakes.

Piaggio’s engineers have spent a lot of time to give the MP3 250 faultless ergonomics. Thereby, the saddle and handle bar were carefully designed to offer a comfortable riding position and you also get a pretty spacious under seat storage.
