This is my 5th scooter and it's the best all around scooter that I've owned. I've had Honda, Aprilia and Kymco and this is the winner. Very smooth ride and excellent handling. Very well built and good fit and finish. It's a blast to ride. Highly recommended!

I have owned my Piaggio BV200 since July 2004 and it has been an absolute jewel of a vehicle. My early experience with Motor Bikes was in 1965-68 with a Suzuki 250 cc two-stroker and I was a little aprehensive about re-learning to drive at 59. Well, I was so pleasantly surprised with the balance of this machine. It only took me a few hours to get totally comfortable and safe with the ride and performance of the powerful LEADER Engine and the balance of the BV200. I use my BV200 for errands around town and I feel totally at ease in the Freeways at speeds keeping up with the traffic and still getting 75+ MPG. I always look forward to going out in my beatiful Dragon Red Machine!

I never had a motorcycle before, so I took a class where I learned on a Honda Rebel 250. This BV200 has nearly the same feel as that bike. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for something a bit more substantial than the usual "minibike" sized scooters you see most often. Prior to moving from the suburbs to Downtown Milwaukee, I commuted by bus. It meant I had plenty of time to observe regular motorcycles in stop and go traffic. I realized having an automatic scooter would be more practical in the city, since then I'd only have to worry about accelerating and braking. I bought the BV200 instead of a smaller bike because I knew I wanted to be able to ride on the freeway occasionally as this is my primary 3 season transportation. I've never topped out the bike, but I have gone about 67 mph with no stability problems whatsoever. I installed the optional tall windshield and the manufacturer suggests not riding as fast as the stock windshield allows. Top end is supposed to be 76 mph, which I have no doubt it can reach. I recently upgraded the variator to a Malossi performance version with lighter clutch weights to give me quicker acceleration at low speeds, but in doing so I took a bit off my top end speed. I've been told the performance exhaust system I plan to add next year will get back any top end speed I may have lost. Since I typically drive only a few miles to work each day through downtown rush hour streets, the top speed isn't a big deal. I only need to stay ahead of the city buses. My continuing disappointment is not being able to store my 3/4 helmet under the seat; despite having the emissions control equipment removed recently. My wife's 1/2 helmet fits fine, but I'd rather keep the extra protection of my helmet. I just have to keep the top case on so I can store my helmet in there.

Just one month with my BV, and it's already been through 300 miles and 1 rally!ᅠ Previous ride was a kitted Aprilia Scarabeo 50, top speed a strained 55mph; this scoot will do 60mph without any effort. Despite the difference in price, the BV's engine is identical to the one that powers Vespa's new Gran Tourismo (GT).ᅠ The BV is a bit slower off the line too, but it has better overall balance than the GT.ᅠ The gas mileage is amazing, too -- 160 miles between two days of city riding on 1/4 tank. The only real complaint about this scoot is the underseat storage which, even though it goes the length of the saddle, is too small for a 3/4 or larger helmet.ᅠ
