Piaggio X8

6bb7_1

The X8 250 i.e. is a vehicle with exceptional performance, comfort and style. This optimal new scooter offer the perfect blend of equipment, maneuverability and cost-effectiveness.
Quick and snappy, with abundant space for rider and passenger, excellent aerodynamic protection and super-scooter load capacity.
The Piaggio X8 is designed for the most exacting users, who want their GT scooter to offer nothing less than the best in terms of comfort, style, power and performance.
The 250cc uses the all-new four-valve, liquid-cooled Quasar 250 electronic injection engine, which meets Euro 3 standards. The advanced closed loop injection with a Lambda sensor, together with a three-way catalytic converter and electronic control system, considerably reduces emissions as well as fuel consumption and provides immediate throttle response. The Piaggio X8 250 is fun to ride, quick off the mark in town traffic and comfortable with short motorway trips as well as extended touring.
The new Quasar i.e. series is the result of the Piaggio engine division’s commitment to creating a truly top quality, environment-friendly engine.
Several design and functional changes have been made to improve comfort and make the new X8250 immediately recognizable.

Seat height has been lowered to 785 mm for easier handling and control when maneuvering the scooter from a parking location. The saddle has a new smooth lining with new stitching.
