The BV 350 is the first model from Piaggio equipped with the brand new 350 engine, a product made to obtain the maximum power of a 400, but with a size, emissions levels and management costs comparable to those of a 300 cc.
The all-new BV 350 features a brand new, state-of-the-art, single cylinder 350cc engine. With the power of a 400cc and the compact dimensions and light weight of a 300cc, the BV 350 sets a new standard in the maxi-scooter segment.
On the BV 350 the brand new single cylinder 350, 4 stroke, 4 valve, electronic injection and liquid-cooled engine makes its debut. Again, the Piaggio Group creates state-of-the-art technology for the market. This is an engine designed to provide performance comparable to a 400 cc engine, but with compact dimensions and reduced weight in line with a 300 cc engine.
The new thermal group was specifically studied to optimise fluid dynamics, by adopting solutions which allow performance to be enhanced, increasing fuel economy at the same time. The new design also contributes to a significant reduction in emissions. The stroke and bore values (69 mm x 78 mm) were selected to guarantee improved output at intermediate RPMs and with partial loads as well as greater operational flexibility.
The performance, comparable to that of a 400, – with maximum power of 33.3 hp at 8,250 rpm and maximum torque of 24 foot pounds at 6,250 rpm – place the new BV 350 at the top of its category.
