Scarabeo 200 First 1400kms

The first 1400kms have crept up quite fast on my new Beo 200, but it's been a fun time.  I could not ask for anymore out of this scooter.  As I said before, it's a 180cc, but gets to a top speed of 140!  A lot of 250's dont do that :)  Fuel economy is amazing.  I get well over 200kms out of a 8L tank.  If I have to nail the Beo down to one word, Impressive it is.

Last week at 1200kms Marty had his first service.  Very quick, easy, not a lot involved.  Now that he is loosening up, performance just gets better and better.  I have a sneaky feeling that I will have this scooter longer then the 7 months I had my previous one.  It does everything I need/want, and more.  And with the Advanced Rider Training I had last week, I am having a blast. 

I have found that everywhere I go, I get at least an approving look, or someone wants to ask me about the 'Zebra looking scooter'  My local bakery owners have both asked me if I am working for a scooter shop, as the last few times they have seen me, I have been on 4 different scooters (Sportcity, GP1, Rambla, and Beo).  I just smile and tell them "one day"

You make we want to buy a beo with an impressive blog like that. It makes me thing that i should buy one but i would buy mine in red (i wish it came in black). I still cannot believe that it gets to a top speed of 140. That is unbelievable considering that the Derbi only gets to 130km/h and it is a 250. Aprillia must be doing something right.

Comes in 'coffee black'. I sat on one at sHQ. Sold though, so I settled on the red. I take delivery next Tuesday. Can't wait. And now the new model comes out with injection. Ah well, it would probably cost more anyway...

I had a Vespa GTS owner drooling over the Beo this morning.  After having a chat to him, and he left tripping over his bottom lip.
