The Piaggio Group of Italy has dazzled at the EICMA 2017 in
Milan, Italy with several new products across its range of brands. Prominent
models include the Vespa Elettrica, Aprilia SX-RX 50/125 motorcycle and the Moto
Guzzi V85, Moto Guzzi V7 III and Moto
THE VESPA ELETTRICA is a completely electric
powered version of the iconic Vespa scooter. Its “heart” is a power unit
capable of delivering continuous power of 2 kW and peak power of 4 kW, achieves
a performance superior to a traditional 50cc scooter, especially with regard to
acceleration, which benefits from the typical brilliant delivery of the
electric motors. Vespa Elettrica guarantees a range of 100 km, and in order to
provide a complete response to the growing demand for clean mobility, it also
appears in the “X” version which, by placing a generator alongside the electric
motor, doubles its range. The time required for a full charge of the modern
lithium-ion battery is 4 hours. Vespa Elettrica is not just a silent,
environmentally-friendly and technologically advanced vehicle; it is also
highly connected: the many features offered by a new version of the Vespa
Multimedia Platform, the multimedia system that connects the smartphone to the
vehicle, can be managed through a completely new man-machine interface that
incorporates digital colour instrumentation with a TFT display. Vespa Elettrica
will be wholly produced in Pontedera and from there will be distributed throughout
the world in 2018.
MOTO GUZZI CONCEPT V85 pays tribute to the great
adventurous trips and is dedicated to those who, despite never ceasing to dream
of adventurous journeys, are seeking out a motorcycle capable of returning that
spirit to their everyday journeys. A new Moto Guzzi engine was launched in the
V85. It is a two-cylinder 90° transverse air-cooled 850cc which, thanks to its
complete redesign, has 80 HP of maximum power. This feature, coupled with the
powerful torque at low speeds typical of all Moto Guzzi two-cylinders and the
lightness of the V85, make it fun to use in for on-road and off-road riding.
MOTO GUZZI V7 III CARBON (in limited edition and numbered) combines
style with the precious and modern quality of many carbon fibre components, as
well as numerous other contrasting details in red colour as the engine heads,
the seams of the new seat in Alcantara material and the Brembo front brake
calliper. The V7
III Rough is distinguished by the knobbly tyres cast on radial
spokes, dedicated seat with stitching, a passenger grab strap and the pair of
aluminium side fairings. The V7 III Milano is distinguished by its highly
refined style and high-end gear, including dual circular instrumentation,
chrome exhausts and passenger handlebars. It is distinguished by the shiny
colours of the tank and for the spoke wheels
As for what concerns V9, MOTO GUZZI’S
EASY CRUISER, THE NEW V9 ROAMER AND V9 BOBBER have now two clearly
distinct personalities: one more touring and the other sportier. V9 Roamer turns
heads even more on long routes by introducing a new pair or rear shock
absorbers and a new protective top fairing. V9 Bobber gains new opaque graphics
and is available in three colour variants: Impeto blue, black Notte, and
APRILIA SX AND RX, the new entries to off-road
family are available in five models and two cylinders. The new Aprilia RX 125
and SX 125 share superstructures, frame, engine and suspension, but each has a
distinctive character that can be adapted to different passions. The wheels
fitted with 17” sporty tyres make the SX one of the most effective 125cc bikes
on mixed runs; lightweight and snappy, it is able to offer the emotions of a
higher-powered engine capacity. Aprilia RX 125 is the ideal choice for having
fun on off-road routes. They are both equipped with a refined single-cylinder
125 cc engine, an Aprilia engine that has been able to further refine the
four-stroke engine, allowing it to enter the strict Euro 4 standard. RX and SX
are equipped with advanced suspension and a new ABS braking system with
anti-roll-over. Available in three models, the SX, SX Factory and RX Factory,
the 50cc models from the Aprilia family are equipped with a two-stroke,
single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, Euro 4 engine with lamellar intake. Common to
all three versions are also the high-strength steel perimeter frame, made in an
original silver colour, polished stainless steel exhaust, with a clear racing
inspiration and the new digital instrumentation.
