I like all the Piaggio BV series scooters. I test rode a used BV500, and almost bought it. I decided to think it over another day, and someone else bought it. I probably messed up. These scooters seem to be an ideal alternative to the HUGE Japanese maxi scooters. Same displacement in a much smaller body. I can't find anything not to love about them, unless it is the maybe true maybe not parts issue.
