For those seeking something a little more powerful than the 125 cc version, Piaggio developed Liberty 150. Whilst the look and bike itself are identical to its less powerful twin, what’s different is the fuel-injected single cylinder engine which, like the rest of the family, benefits from i-get (Italian Green Experience Technology) but delivers a punchy 12.9 hp (9.6 kW) at 7750 rpm and torque of 9.58 ft-lbs (13 Nm) at 5250 rpm. On the environmental side, it also stands up to scrutiny, conforming with Euro 4 standards. On the aesthetics front, it has the same elegant look as the 125 cc and the large diameter tires (16” in front and 14” at the rear) which are such a key element in the design and are a perfect foil to such distinctive visual features as the vertical decorative element on the front shield. Last but not least, the Liberty 150 offers plenty of space for luggage, shopping and the like with a glove box in the rear shield and an underseat compartment large enough to hold a full-face helmet.
