With A New Two-Stroke Engine

Piaggio rebuilt its fun-and-young Typhoon 50 ahead of the 2018 model year, and the changes are sufficient to give it an “all-new” tag. New body details modify the looks slightly, but what remains is still recognizable as a Typhoon with plenty of key elements that keep it close to the family tree. Not only is the engine new, it’s a super-clean two-stroke that meets Euro 4 standards due to a number of improvements in induction and emissions control. The factory plans on bringing this little ride to the U.S. for the entry-level/teenager market, so let’s take a look at what the Italian scooter maker has in store for us.

Does it look familiar? It should. Overseas the Typhoon is marketed under the Gilera brand — another of Piaggio groups — with a two-stroke engine. Here it’s the Typhoon 50 and its big brother, the Typhoon 125, under the Piaggio banner with four-stroke engines.

With its sport styling, the Typhoon is a little, lightweight scooter with some off-road prowess — maybe not off-road off-road, but at least a little rugged-dirt-road capable. That shark-nose front fairing gives it a bit of the sport-bike aggressive appeal but with the convenience of a scooter.

The Piaggio brand started out in 1884 and survived (barely) two World Wars while building rail machinery and aircraft. In an effort to provide affordable transportation for post-WWII Italy, the factory launched the iconic Vespa scooter line in 1946.
