Today I picked up my first 4 stroke scooter, a 2012 Piaggio Typhoon. It’s a 125cc, air cooled, 2 valve, carbureted, CVT transmission’d, city assault scooter. The cool part about this scoot is the increased suspension travel and chunky tires which give it off-road capability, or in my case torn up, potholed city streets! It should be perfect for the streets of San Francisco and for me to further my 4 stroke mechanics skills.

After getting it home I gave it a wash and detail to get all dust off and get some protectant on the plastic bits.

No Pets allowed in the underseat storage!

Has California emissions sticker that shows a full evap system installed on the bike. Might need to look more into this.

Nice that it has preload adjustment on the rear shock. I’m gonna turn this a few notches as I read the manual states 70kg rider is default setting.
