2017 Piaggio Beverly 300 by Police on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

The "Total Black" Look...

Piaggio Beverly 300 by Police is available in the aggressive matt Nero Carbonio colour scheme and is characterised by the black saddle with light blue stitching, as well as plenty of chromium trim, such as the headlight and instrument cluster frame, the "tie" on the front shield and the mirrors with light blue glass. The "total black" look of this special Beverly version is highlighted by the plentiful black trim, such as the final drive casing, the handlebar ends, the luggage rack, the diamond edge wheel rims and the central tunnel.

EURO 4 ENGINES - ABS AND ASR STANDARD EQUIPMENT ON ALL MODELS

THE PIAGGIO BEVERLY RANGE, LEADER IN THE HIGH WHEEL SCOOTER SEGMENT, HAS EURO 4 ENGINES, A MORE COMPLETE EQUIPMENT PACKAGE, LIVERIES WITH DEDICATED TRIMMING AND A SPORTY AND AGGRESSIVE PACKAGE: BEVERLY BY POLICE

Launched in 2001, Piaggio Beverly revolutionised the medium engine capacity scooter market, introducing a new type of vehicle with an attractive design, brilliant performance and extremely safe, not only because of the large diameter wheels, but also thanks to the motorcycle-style chassis. Beverly's commercial success has always been accompanied by constant updates that have kept it at the top of its sales segment and the desires of the most advanced metropolitan users. The latest is the arrival of the SportTouring top of the range version that introduced, for the first time on a scooter, the ABS/ASR safety system duo and an innovative 350 engine with record setting performance.


With Beverly, Piaggio completes its high wheel scooter offer capable of meeting any and all daily mobility needs. The Piaggio high wheel entry level is called Liberty, completely new and equipped with ABS and the new Piaggio i-get engine in the air cooled version. The passage from the entry level Liberty scooter to the large and luxurious Beverly is marked by the arrival of Medley, with a more complete standard equipment package that includes the "Start&Stop" system, the Piaggio i-get engine in the liquid cooled version, ABS and an incredible helmet compartment large enough for two flip up helmets. The new Beverly range therefore represents two benchmarks in the motorcycling progression of Piaggio high wheel scooter customers.

The changes in the Piaggio Beverly 300 and 350 family are:

The engines that power the Piaggio Beverly 300 and 350 have obtained Euro 4 approval. Both powerplants are advanced and modern units, designed to meet the increasingly strict European emissions regulations. This means that, thanks to the use of a new catalytic converter, a new silencer and an update to the electronic control unit maps, the two Piaggio single-cylinders become Euro 4 approved and maintain the brilliance and performance that have always characterised Beverly.


The entire Beverly range now has more features and a more complete standard equipment package. For all models, the ABS braking system and ASR traction control system are now included as standard equipment. The remote control to open the saddle and find your vehicle by making the turn indicators flash ("bike finder" function) also comes as standard equipment. The 12V socket, already included on the entire range, is replaced by the more functional USB port, handy to recharge any modern device. The entire Piaggio Beverly range is available in new and attractive colour variations, with brand new, dedicated trimming. Piaggio Beverly 300, 300S and by Police also have a new instrument cluster with ABS and ASR warning lights, and the rider can disable the latter using the button on the handlebar.








2017 Piaggio Beverly 300 by Police www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

The new medium engine capacity Piaggio Beverly family is made up of:

" Piaggio Beverly 300 by Police: a special version of the Beverly 300 that stems from the combination of two Italian traditions of excellence like Piaggio and Police. This version also has all the technical characteristics that have made Piaggio Beverly so popular, including the liquid cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke, four-valve engine - quick, reliable and parsimonious (31.3 km/l in the WMTC cycle).

" Piaggio Beverly 300: a classic in urban mobility. Safe, reliable, with its 278 cc single-cylinder engine providing generous performance. The 'Made in Italy' design is characterised by elegant and popular shapes, where details such as the LED daylight running lights and brake light play a prominent role. Ideal for city and suburban commutes, thanks to a perfect riding position for the rider, erect and relaxed, excellent air protection and the carrying capacity of the helmet compartment, large enough to hold two flip up helmets.

" Piaggio Beverly 300 S: the most sporty version of Beverly adds dedicated colour schemes and matt dark grey painted details that give it a young and aggressive look. The Piaggio Beverly 300 S also stands out for its chassis, inspired by a motorcycle chassis, with the fuel tank in a central position under the foot board to centralise the weight (at the same time freeing up space in the helmet compartment) for a more satisfying and safe riding experience, whether in or out of the city.

I could not give it a fail because two wheels are fun, but not cool either. Uncool for me. If I was spending the money would rather have a smaller motorcycle for the same price.

I've been a huge fan of the Vespa since I was a kid and I watched someone rip the rear wheel off and use it to make a go-kart. I realize real men don't ride scooters unless their kitten has pain, but... Bikes like these (yes because they have two (2) wheels I'll call them bikes) truly do continue to maintain a level of technology, and perhaps even power, that keeps them road worthy. I wouldn't necessarily ride one on the highway, but if I lived in a small town and needed to commute there is sufficient technology and power to make a ride like this practical and economical. I picture a beautiful tree lined street with nice houses and white picket fences going by as I cruise down the road with tears streaming from my eyes (not because of the wind hitting my face due to the incredible speed I'm going, but because I'm hoping none of my friends see me riding this thing). Not a ride for any AZ roads as this is the true wild... wild... west and there just ain't enough ponies on this ride to keep up. In my attempt to find reviews on you-tube just about all of them were in Italian making it pretty to look at but difficult to understand. Police does a great job of adding the scooter-bling, and Piaggio as a manufacturer of many different types of motorized devices including aircraft keeps the level of technology acceptable. So like other rides we have reviewed, this one too serves a purpose... quite well.

I voted: Awesome to Fail... thus, cool.

Depending on the right setting, it's awesome (inner-city cool café), in the wrong setting (Cruiser bar) it is a fail. So it is REALLY, really, really hard to judge it. In fact, I can't think of a motorcycle this hard to vote on. Even a Honda Grom has a higher place overall in the majority of settings. (Not that I'm picking on the Grom, it's just the smallest motorcycle I can think of right now).

2017 Piaggio Beverly 300 by Police is a buffed-out scooter. I don't think it's possible to make a scooter more "mean" looking! So if they were going for that, well, it works 100%. If you took the same styling (matt black, black spoke mag rims, black saddlebags and a limited edition model and styled a Harley-Davidson the same way, you'd have a sales hit.

So, do we are North American's just "don't get scooters?" are we too spoiled in big bikes, open roads, high speeds, no lane-splitting/filtering (other than Cali) and not enough grid-lock traffic?

Maybe so.

The question is would you ride the 2017 Piaggio Beverly 300 by Police in Europe or Italy? Does the country you ride it in suddenly make it awesome?

Mike

P.S. The Bonus question: Anyone that answered "The Police" was a clothing company. A gold star for you. :star:

My take:

278cc, 21hp scooter that is pretty light (I can't imagine more than 250lbs), should be fine even at highways speeds. Not sure about top speed (maybe 140km/h topped), but fast enough to duke it out with other cars in the flow of traffic.

= a Coolwall Factor of 59.5%

Total Motorcycle's Take-a-way: "Don't judge me man!". Scooters are everywhere and nowhere. We see them but most of us don't want to be seen on one (even if we secretly think they are cool). I think it's a perception issue, of what others think of us and the location we are riding it. Overall, the 2017 Piaggio Beverly 300 by Police is as mean as they come. It's like a gangster smart car with 25" rims. But can it be taken seriously?

Get excited as the next TMW Cool Wall bike for 2017 is now up for voting and discussion, have fun!
