It depends on the specific tyres you have fitted, Piaggio give a general  recommendation but you should check what the tyre manufacturer actually states for your bike.

In many cases people run over-inflated as often manufacturers go with 36/41 for solo use, but in reality should be lower.

For 125 the correct pressure it's: front-30, rear-33 (36 with passenger). Piaggio give's you the correct pressure, it's not a recommendation. The tyre manufacturer gives you the maximum pressure.
P.S. Check the pressure before you go, the tyre must be cold.

Sorry but I disagree, Piaggio do not make tyres and have no control over what tyres you may decide to fit on your bike.  The people that design and manufacture the tyres you are using are the only ones who will give you the right pressures. 

All tyres may have a max pressure on the sidewall but I'm not saying you use that, but to check and use the tyre manufacturer's prescribed pressures for your specific bike. 

Also the Xevo 125 Manual (page 11) actually states 2.3bar/2.6bar, which is 33.4 F & 37.7 R as posted by MaxiSW.

Got to agree with Poldark on this one ;-) Piaggio don't manufacturer tyres but do recommend certain brand's based on their pre production testing of all their machines! All tyre manufacturers give a maximum pressure guide for their products (it's law),however, the overall tyre and wheel size on the xevo governs the tyre pressure in this case. Biggest problem you will encounter with under inflated tyres is not being able to ride through bends smoothly due to the tyres not riding on the outside edge! That's why the tyres are conical (curved), you will also notice the steering becomes stiffer at lower speed which is always an early sign that you need to nip in to your nearest garage and stick some air in your tyres.
