Where the X9 really stands out, though, is in the equipment levels. Apart from the communication systems and the on-board computer, there is the nice touch of an automatic stand and remote-controlled seat release (as well as push-button release in the cockpit). The storage compartment can easily accommodate a full-face and an open-face helmet, or a briefcase. The motor is Piaggio’s go-to engine for their larger models including the X9, MP3 400, MP3 500 and BV 500. This motor is a nice liquid cooled, 4-valve design that features fuel injection as well. It’s a nice advanced motor that provides good power, while being a little sluggish off the line.
