    What is the price of the BV300 there? I'd like to try to figure what it will cost in the U.S. when it gets here next year. Looks fantastic!

    Thanks!

    Howdy,

    Sorry for changing the subject, but my "new" Sh150i is more fun than fighting with kinfolk! Shucks, it even draws praise when refueling (well..the one time I gassed up it stopped a conversation and folks began grinning).

    And the female bank Prez & loan officer came outside and "ooh'd and ahh'd" over it. The loan officer began pestering me with questions on her husband's behalf about how one actually carry's stuff on a scooter. It seems they're interested in owning a scoot, now. I was delighted to explain. :) :clap

    I'm rather sure that our price is of no use to you, but..
    It's around $6500, same as the old model was.

    If you wanna compare to something you already have, the Ninja 650R
    is over $9000 here..

    Thanks for the info. If Piaggio keeps the price the same as the old model here it will be a REAL BARGIN! They are $4899.00 here- American dollars. I have some pix saved from an Italian site- they really look nice- lots of nice details. The Italians must think so too since it's become a best seller over there.

    Thanks again!

    It's a great improvement over the old model supposedly, which was
    already a great design. I loved the 400/500cc versions.

    ..but I'm eyeballing the Kymco Downtown 300i as a favorite in that
    class, and might replace both my current bikes with one of those.
