Seat height looks low if you can believe it.

Piaggio chief stylist in the article seems pretty sure the wheels are to be 17"...

"We have other versions in the pipeline, I can only say they'll have both 17" wheels."

Supposed to be 80HP.

Question is, is it a hemi head or heron?
It won't be a heron head, same head design as the V9/V7III I'd guess...

A Hemi head would be right for a claimed 80bhp but you could get 55bhp with the Heron head. So which power output figure is the right one? I know 17 and 19 inch wheels would make sense but that's not what is stated in spec list link from the original OP! Just how much of the info that Piaggio are putting out is correct? Guess we'll only find out the truth when they get to the dealers. Maybe.

It's supposed to be "in the flesh" as a production machine at InterMot this week, so some better reviews will soon follow, no doubt.

All the reports bar one say 80 bhp.
If you look at this website and scroll down, you will see a cutaway drawing of the engine and you can clearly see the hemi head and pistons.

Don't know why it keeps adding that to the link. I take it off, it adds it back.


Got it at last.

Yep that's a Hemi head! Be interesting to see one in the flesh, not that I'd buy one. Piaggio obviously are aiming at the youth market with that paint job but probably not realising that 12 year olds aren't allowed to ride bikes at that age in most countries. All those pics show the bike looking remarkably level for one having different sized wheels but perhaps that's due to the different tyre profiles?

I don't think you like the colour scheme Bob. Just an inkling I'm getting.

There you go, a bit of class. Proof that not everyone want folks to think they live in Toy Town and have a mate called Big Ears!LOL

One with a  dark green frame and grey tin ware might look a bit tasty and more purposeful?
