I stopped by the local piaggio dealer today just to look around. I was looking at their BV350 and they asked if I wanted to ride it. Was could I say?? of course I said yes.
Some observations. The under seat storage is huge. The riding position is good with plenty of room for me (6-2, 34" inseam) but the seat is only OK. As for the ride, it had way more power that my SC250. It handled fine on the short ride I took it. It was not as agile as my 250 but still felt light and agile enough for city traffic. It's a definite possibility for me in the future but I'm not planning on anything new for at least the next year.
I ride, Therefore I Am.
