    Piaggio Medley

    Just reading about the Medley on the Blogs page sounds like it could be a good machine built in Vietnam same as the GTS 150 . Also here is a UK test ride of the 125cc version click if we get the 150cc version i suppose the deciding factor will be the cost

    I like the look of these scooters. I think the 150 3v would be a better seller in Aus. over the Liberty 150 3v. This offering presents a pretty one for the girls and a 'blokey' version ... imo.

    yes Pyrah,

     

    that is an interesting read. It seems to combined Beverly and Fly: a "Flyverley" if U like.

    : I wonder if this scoot will take sales from Fly?/ i does seem to offer a bit more but, as U say, price will tell

    Got that wrong. Just read the scooter profile. Four valve liquid cooled. Rather than an upgraded Liberty, as I know it, it is more like a compact Beverly. Thanks for the post Pyrah. Would love to see the sub 224cc category expanded (NSW lowest category). With the technology (R&D) now going into these smaller capacity motors, they can deliver surprising performance.

    Re: Piaggio Medley

    It kind of reminds me that it looks like the Newer Piaggio Fly v3ie in terms of body shape. Other than that I fail to see the difference.

     

    Why cannot I improve on my skills just because of my silly name?

    Yep big family resemblance I think it's larger wheels and what's under the skin will make it a much better machine than the Fly not that the Fly is a bad machine cost will be the deciding factor Big Smile

    How many clicks have you logged on the Dio Swampy? What I enjoy about the Dio are the ergonomics for this feisty compact scooter. I went into a large MC dealer today on a topbox assignment. They had on the floor every model scooter currently in the (Aus.) Yamaha line-up. Now I need to exclude the TMAX, but none of the others felt as good as the Dio (to me - 178cm - 70kg).

    I settled on a Givi B27 quick release top box, mainly just for the winter heavies when I shed them. Also, they were able to supply the Dio specific attachment rails (SR 1106), so no drilling will be rquired. I logged 300ks on my new Dio in less than two weeks just sport coastal riding as part of the break-in. Preferred the constant running with varied throttle response than short stop-starts. I have always loved being in the saddle, and it does not have to be the biggest, best or fastest. But it has got me thinking. The Dio is a keeper though.

    I' ve just turned over 2100k in 18 months from new. I just ride around the Macedon Ranges on the back roads. I have an aftermarket top box which is removeable but a pain to lock but I'm very happy with the Dio but like to look at all the alternatives.

    In a couple of years when I can take a pillion passenger I might move up to a 150cc or bigger machine and will look at all the scooters on offer.

    Re: Piaggio Medley

    Thanks for the reply Swampy. When you last posted your local as the Macedon Ranges, I was keen to identify where that was. Some years ago I did travel extensively with a Cub camper trailer, which included a lot of Victoria and of course the Murray River (with kayak). But I subsequently stumbled to remember these ranges. What I do remember was how comparatively small was Victoria after having travelled for 3 months in Queensland on a previous trip.

    Like you I still enjoy to look even though I have only just tipped myself into a new Dio, which I absolutely luv for its intended purpose. It got me to thinking about your next choice, when the time comes. The first scoot you have owned has a stamp of quality at a price point, has great road manners for a compact scoot and punches above its weight on the performance stakes with Honda reliability. So, where to from there? Some hard thinking ahead.

    But you have a great scoot to enjoy in the meantime.

    # I am very satisfied with the Givi B27 quick release top box. Large enough to be useful without overwhelming the scoot. The Dio specific additional rails were a bit $$$s, comparatively, but it is a very tidy install. The lid latch did rattle a little at first, but this was a quick fix.

    Thanks for that. The graph shows mods deliver hugely were it matters. It would be nice to have two units; a stock standard which is b... good as it is; and a custom play thing tricked with these goodies. This scooter is so nimble, with the extra punch you could get ahead of the game if not careful.

    Re: Piaggio Medley

    Currently in Slovenia after a few weeks in Croatia and Italy. Scooter heaven! Have checked out plenty of Piaggio's and Vespas. Some beautiful Vespas well looked after by the owners by the look of them. The Beverly 150cc is very popular here and quite a few odd scooters as well.

    I guess I'll just have to save up or dream a bit more. Can't wait to get back home and jump on the Dio.
