The promising looks are backed up with very high equipment levels, including ABS brakes and even a traction control system to prevent the rear wheel from spinning in slippery conditions. The instrument panel is LCD while a neat touch includes backlit switchgear
Comfort is very good, helped by the adjustability of the central seat hump to suit varying rider heights. The field of view in the mirrors is too narrow though, making it hard work to negotiate heavy moving traffic as you do need to keep turning your head when better mirrors would have saved you the effort.
The low weight is clearly an influence in all aspects of its performance, as at 196kg it’s light for this kind of machine, and that should benefit economy too. Realistically in everyday riding in traffic the X10 should be good for 4.4l/100km
Another security feature of the new Piaggio X10 is the presence of the parking brake built into the side stand: at each extraction of the crutch the brake is activated automatically, maintaining the X10 stable and secure also when stopping in non-flat terrain.
