2011 EICMA: Piaggio X10

Making a surprise appearance at the 2011 EICMA is Piaggio’s brand new X10, which went immediately in the spotlight because of its futuristic look.
Piaggio dubbed the X10 as ‘the new flagship’ for the Italian manufacturer, and it is expected to hit the showrooms in Spring 2012.

The model be available with three different engines – 125, 350 and 500 cc – to meet the most diverse needs.

The most remarkable highlights of the new range are the electronically adjustable rear suspension, dual ABS and ASR system, parking brake light integrated into the stand, on-board computer with LCD screen, backlit controls, large windshield, triple glove compartment and a quite generous boot.
Aesthetically, it is safe to say that Piaggio really put a lot of effort into making the X10 a very polished and elegant product: the front headlight assembly contains the poly-ellipsoidal element of the high-beam headlight, two complex surface parabolas of the low-beam lights and also turn indicators and that, crossing the front over the entire width, makes the “look” of the new Piaggio X10 unique.
Click on the ‘Continue reading’ link below to find out more about Piaggio X10 and the full technical specs of the 3 versions.

Then there is the 350 cc engine, producing 34 hp and 32.
3 Nm of torque, while the 500 cc unit has an output of 40 hp and a peak torque of 42 Nm.
The chassis adopt a double-cradle solution made of high strength steel.
On the front there is a traditional type fork with a travel of 115 mm, while on the rear both 125 and 350 versions are fitted with a double-acting double hydraulic shock absorber with preloading adjustable to 4 positions and stroke of 100mm whereas the 500cc X10 uses a rear single shock absorber with electrically adjustable preloading, located on the right side of the vehicle, which receives the load of the wheel through a lever.
The three models share a 15″ 5-spoke wheel rims on the front (tyre 120/70) and a 13” on the rear (tyre 150/70).
Piaggio X10 is equipped with a sophisticated braking system with dual disc of 280 mm on the front and single disc of 240 mm at the rear, standard equipped with the combined braking system, and, on option, the ABS/ ASR double system (Acceleration Slippery Regulation).
