The new design is decidedly sporty, with the front end having been totally redesigned and from the side, the lines abandon the softness of the previous models to
become more taut and muscular giving a completely different feel to the previous models. The wheel rims(16” on the front and 14” on the rear) are also new, with a sporty seven split spoke design, and the seat has been enhanced with dual fabric design and double stitching.
The new 400cc The 400 hpe powerplant replaces the previous 350 engine. The difference lies not only in a simple increase of cubic centimetres, but starting from an already extremely efficient engine, the Piaggio engineers further improved mechanical and thermodynamic performance, and further reduced the already extremely low vibration and noise levels. The result is a power rating that reaches 26 kW (35.4 HP) at 7500 rpm and a maximum torque of 37.7 Nm at 5500 rpm, data which translates on the road into performance and pure riding pleasure
