Here's some shots of my Givi bolt on windscreen. I like the larger size. I can now ride without a face shield or goggles.

hi Kiznile

My wife bought a 200 Scarabeo about 3 years ago. It has been a very good scoot and fun to ride.
She lets me ride it. I weigh 195 and it pulls me around good.

I liked her scooter so much, I bought a Kymco GTI300 for myself and sold my motorcycle.

Ride safe my friend.

ps: The 200 Scarabeo is assembled in China, not made there. Big difference.
Parts come from Italy.

Thats a beaut and the fastest color! The 200 is an easy one to maintain.

Scoot on, and enjoy....you have some fantastic scootering roads up your way.

Just got mine a little over a month ago and have put almost 1000 miles on it already! I love this bike. I was going back and forth between this and the SportCity 250, but the looks and price difference brought me to the Beo 200. No regrets at all.

Here's mine:

I just made it from scratch with some strap steel and ordered the light bolts from ebay...used all factory stuff otherwise. :)

I felt the exact same way! My friend bought a SC 250, and when i rode it around some more, it reminded me why i bought the beo 200...much better machine to ride IMO

I've since sold the PIAA's, installed a Givi Screen but cut it down about 7" (looks and functions AMAZING) and this weekend I'm installing a Polini 2G maxi clutch...should cure that stupid slipping stock clutch. I'll clean her up and post some new pics this weekend. :)

300 miles till valve check, that happened FAST...holy cow..

Cry Great scooter!

Hi,

I envy your scoot I regret selling mine a year ago and I truly miss it. Now I have to stick with my Beverly 500. The only thing it has going for it compared to the Scarabeo is the speed and acceleration. Other than that not one thing is better. The Beo 200 breaks better, turns better, has suspension and above all is much smoother. Original tires are crap/dangerous though, changed mine for Michelin City Grip after a week. I had the problem with cooling liquid leakage and rust on the fork legs covers but those things were easy to fix.

I guess the Dr Pulley weights are improving the acceleration from stand still which was a bit of a setback.
