The most notable feature of the new BV350 is an all new 350cc engine which has the power of a 400 and the compact size, weight, emissions and fuel consumption of a 300.
While the U.S. models will not have ASR or the ABS system, Piaggio USA is confident this model will succeed as it has already been garnering great reviews in the international press. Colors, pricing and final specifications will be announced closer to the U.S. introduction.
Hope we get red or blue (I've watched some youtube videos from Italy) and the that pricing is close to the BV300- $4999.00. These are very nice scooters. I can't wait till the dealers start getting them.
