New engine, new performance

Performance and efficiency are the standout characteristics of the new single-cylinder 500 HPE (High Performance Engine). It boasts an increase in performance of around 14% compared to the previous 500cc, with maximum power of 44.2 CV and in the three-wheel world, a significant reduction in fuel consumption. The "Ride by Wire" electronic acceleration system optimises engine operation distribution and flow even at low speed by means of changing the engine map with a mere touch of a button on the handlebar. 

Also new is the transmission cover and the finish of the external crankcase, whose exhaust comes with a new silencer, reducing perceived noise level and optimising timbre.

Safety starts with an "A"

"A" as in ABS. Developed together with Continental, the three-channel AS offers outstanding active activity safety levels, avoiding wheel blocking during braking manoeuvres and ensuring you have control in any situation. The two large 13-inch front wheels also contributes to the exceptional safety and improved road surface absorption capacity

"A" also as in ASR (Acceleration Slip Regulation) with it easy deactivation function ensuring the rear wheel won't skid in greasy surfaces such as wet asphalt.
