For the T5 the tire pressures are slightly different but close.

From my T5 service manual:

Front: 17.6 psi.
Rear: 24.9 psi one up.
Rear: 35.5 psi two up.

From my T5 Owners Manual:

Front: 21.33 psi.
Rear: 25.76 psi one up.
Rear: 35.55 psi two up.

Big difference in pressure for the front tire between the Owners and Service manual. I do not know why there is a difference other than Piaggio made a typo. The tire sizes are the same as the PX125/150/200.
