Piaggio X7 Evo 300
X7 Evo is Piaggio's compact GT scooter: agile and compact, making it an effective tool for carving through city traffic, but as stable and protective as a maxi scooter.
Piaggio X7 Evo
Outstanding performance is ensured by a choice of 125 ie and 300 ie engines (4 stroke, 4 valve liquid cooled units), large diameter 13” and 14” wheels and an intelligently designed, perfectly balanced chassis architecture.
Piaggio X7 Evo is a solution for urban and metropolitan mobility that combines the best characteristics of a diverse spectrum of scooter genres. With its elegant and distinctive design and a dry weight of just 159 Kg (161 Kg for the 300), Piaggio X7 Evo fuses the typical light weight and dynamism of an urban scooter with levels of stability, handling and protectiveness which, until now, had been the sole domain of the much bulkier maxi scooter.
Style: created around the rider.
The design of the Piaggio X7 Evo was created around the rider: the result is perfect ergonomics, for a vehicle that is responsive but comfortable and is fun but also easy to use in city traffic.
The lines of the Piaggio X7 Evo were sculpted around the rider: an aerodynamic and protective leg shield, a windscreen mounted on the handlebars and muscular, taut side fairing panels. The rider sits within a cocooning space, becoming one with the vehicle: the result is a scooter that feels almost as if you wear it rather than ride it, which is simple and effective to use.
The frontal view is defined by a large headlight creating a strong family tie with the latest generation of Piaggio GT scooters, lending the Piaggio X7 Evo an aggressive look with a deliberately glaring expression.
The handlebar-mounted windscreen continues the sleek lines of the leg shield uninterruptedly to ensure maximum aerodynamic protection.
The side fairing panels, defined by simple yet decisive lines, emphasise the dynamism of the vehicle and underscore its imposing yet compact forms.
Even the large, comfortable saddle blends perfectly into the forms of the new X7 Evo, while the low saddle height means that riders can easily reach the ground in all conditions. The footrest platforms and the centre tunnel are designed for maximum comfort and sturdiness and, with the saddle and handlebar layout, complete the ergonomic package of the Piaggio X7 Evo conceived for absolute control.
Outstanding load carrying capacity is ensured by a generous helmet compartment below the saddle, capable for holding two helmets (one flip up and one jet helmet), without compromising the sleek, compact proportions of the tail, which are in perfect harmony with the rest of the vehicle. Additional load carrying ability is offered by the new rear luggage rack with integrated grab handles for the passenger.
Another practical touch is the electric fuel filler release button, which is mounted on the handlebar to allow refuelling without getting off the vehicle.
The minute attention to detail is even evident in the instrument panel – angled toward the rider for greater readability – offering a comprehensive array of information and functions with elegantly sporty graphics emphasised by chrome bezels.
Chassis and engines:sparkling performance in total safety.
The new Piaggio X7 Evo stands out from the crowd for its safety and responsiveness in all conditions. Stable, agile, light and protective, X7 Evo has been conceived to be used all year round, both in the city and for extraurban commuting.
The frame, consisting of a double cradle in high strength steel, is complemented by a sturdy hydraulic fork with 35 mm stanchions at the front and a swingarm at the rear, which incorporates the transmission and is linked to a pair of hydraulic shock absorbers with adjustable spring preload offering 4 different positions.
The five spoke alloy wheels stand out immediately not just for their aggressive black colour but also for their diameter (14” at the front and 13” at the rear) and for the generous tyre sizes used (120/70 and 140/60). The class-leading braking system is a guarantee of safety for the Piaggio X7 Evo: with discs, measuring 260 and 240 mm in diameter respectively, stopping both the front and the rear. Both discs are in steel and are arrested by two-piston floating callipers.
Piaggio X7 Evo is available with 125 and 300 cc engines: both of which 4 stroke, liquid cooled units with advanced 4 valve timing. With electronic fuel injection, both engines offer benchmark power outputs and limited fuel consumption.
The 125 cc produces 11 kW (15 HP), perfect balance for urban commuting.
The 300 cc engine is widely recognised as the benchmark scooter powerplant in terms of performance, fuel economy and reliability. An impressive power output of 16.4 kW (22.4 HP) and a maximum torque of 23.8 Nm give the Piaggio X7 Evo excellent flexibility and a class-leading top speed making this the ideal vehicle for the metropolis but also perfect for pleasant longer journeys.
Conceived for daily use and with total practicality in mind, Piaggio X7 Evo may be personalised with a comprehensive range of accessories which includes: a colour keyed top box with an impressive 45 litre capacity, lockable with the ignition key and capable for holding two flip up helmets, a windscreen in 4 mm thick metacrylate, a Tom Tom navigator, a leg cover and a vehicle cover.
