– Piaggio develops 150cc scooter engine
– Will be liquid cooled, fuel injected
– Sports start-stop system
Piaggio has developed a new 150cc engine for their upcoming scooters. This new engine was developed in collaboration with Zongshen, a Chinese motorcycle manufacturer.
According to a report, both companies developed this engine for both the Asian and European markets. Named ‘G150S’, this new 150cc liquid-cooled engine delivers peak power of 15PS and maximum torque of 15Nm. Like most modern motorcycles, the G150S also features a start-stop system, keyless ignition and silent start. These features are becoming the new standards for most scooters worldwide, including India.
At the moment, the company has not mentioned the timeline of this engine reaching the production line, but we can expect new scooters with this engine to be launched in 2022. We think Piaggio and Zongshen will both use this engine to power their future 150cc. scooter. Unfortunately, Piaggio will not be bringing this bike to India as it will drive the price of his scooter quite high.
