The 2014 MY Piaggio Typhoon has been designed especially for younger riders and features a youthful, urban-inspired graphic scheme, that is sure to turn heads no matter where one rides it.

At its heart lies an air-cooled, four-stroke, single cylinder lump mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT), and can produce 5 horsepower and 4 Nm of torque. In addition, it boasts an unmatched gas mileage of 144 mpg. It is suitable for tackling the urban jungle, and its low seat height mean it can accommodate a wide variety of riders.
