This 125 is based on the 98cc from the past years. They offer more power than other models. The rear shock absorber made is apparition this year, and the front one was modified. The front wheel was placed on the left side of the column, for a better stability when riding.
Also the 125 models were equipped with the rear-rack and the fuel-tap with a reserve position.
For the rear suspension, Piaggio put for the first time the complete motor and transmission assembly directly on the wheel and supported it by a single shock absorber.
The front fender is now build in one piece.
