Piaggio revamps 2010 Beverly Scooter

Scooter Preview

Piaggio, as a leading scooter manufacturer worldwide, gives its popular Beverly (euro-model) a full re-work for 2010. The Beverly (available in both a 125cc and 300cc version) receives a full cosmetic makeover with a further evolution of its stylish bodywork, with dual reflector headlight and turn signals integrated with LED running lights, accenting new and distinctive chrome elements.

Piaggio has carefully crafted elegance with a dynamic persona into the new Beverly, retaining the sportiness and practicality that has earned the scooter over a quarter of a million units sold worldwide since 2001. The Beverly’s two-tone color scheme with aluminum-look inserts present a sleek yet muscular effect, borrowing heavily from its style-conscious Italian heritage.

Ergonomics have been improved to give the Beverly a more user-friendly and comfortable ride. Adjustable seat height helps riders find the perfect ground reach and the helmet compartment has managed to grow by 50% capacity, allowing storage of two helmets.

The Beverly sports a re-designed, fully suspended chassis aimed at improved handling, making the Beverly nimble and exacting. Improved brakes (largest in class) add a reassuring measure of safety and control.

The electronically fuel-injected engines, in both 125cc and 300cc displacements, imbue the Beverly with plenty of spirit while remaining smooth and quiet.

Scooters are catching on in America, with their convenience and mobility-combined with bird sipping-like appetite for gas-actually serving to justify a little two-wheel, around town fun.
