Piaggio Beverly SportTouring (BV350 ABS)
Piaggio Beverly SportTouring is the sportiest version of the esteemed family of high-wheel scooters.
Thanks to the motorcycle-type chassis, the outstanding performance of its 350 engine, the ABS braking system and ASR traction control as standard, the Beverly SportTouring is the most advanced and modern representative of the high-wheel scooter segment.
The sporty and advanced version of Beverly, the best-seller of Piaggio high-wheel scooters, among the unequivocal market leaders, is called SportTouring. Piaggio Beverly SportTouring stands out for its one of a kind balance between excellent performance as city commuter paired with performance, comfort and motorcycle pleasure of driving.
The new Beverly SportTouring is the first scooter on the market which can be equipped with the ABS/ASR package for optimum vehicle management even in the most delicate situations, such as in the event of a sudden loss of grip in emergency acceleration or braking.
Both the wheels are equipped with a tone wheel and a sensor for instantaneous detection of rotation speed. The sensors are connected to a two channel hydraulic control unit which, through servo valves regulates the pressure to the braking system, activating the ABS at the moment in which the wheel tends to lock up.
The final result is total and constant grip for the tyres, with a consequent decrease in the braking distance.
