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.
