For sale we have a BV 500. This is a 500 mL touring scooter. Last summer it was serviced with new tires, new air filter, new belt. The nubs are still on the tires. The scooter has nearly 22,000 miles on it.
This motorcycle has no clutch. So it is very easy to drive as you just give it more throttle to gain speed. This has been a great scooter as it’s capable of going on the highway. We are thinking of upgrading because of our stimulus money. So we are seeing if this one is of interest to anyone.
Here is some more information copied from an online review:
The BV500 is simplicity from the first twist of the wrist. Its twist-and-go CVT transmission is capable of flowing with the local traffic, and big enough to trek like its Tourer name implies. It has a large, comfy seat coupled with nearly 500cc of Gilera/Piaggio engineering. Introduced to the U.S. market in '06 as Piaggio's largest scooter, (the larger 800cc scooters are only available in Europe), the Beverly's 460cc water-cooled Single is fitted with EFI and uses a single overhead cam to actuate its four valves, revs to 7500 rpm, and is good for a claimed 40 horsepower. We were able to squeeze a top speed of 100 mph out of the big girl.
