The three of you make to be “high-wheel”. Were born to meet, above all, the demands of urban mobility in southern Europe, mainly in countries like Spain and Greece, in addition to Italy. On the streets of which likes to feel secure in the front wheel diameter of 16 inches. Measure large enough to tolerate the irregularities of the road surface, breaking down less of the balance when you accidentally walked in to a hole. For this, we, the three models of Piaggio, in the recent statistics of the end of the year, are established as one of the motorcycles most sold in absolute. In 2019, the Liberty and the Beverly were exceeded only by the undying leader Honda SH, not surprisingly scooter of the same category.
The Medley follows in the rankings, but not by far. In its second generation, the “crossover” of Piaggio maintains an interesting load capacities. In the saddle of 36 litres there are comfortable two full-face helmets. Capacity “monstre” that is the dowry of the displacement of the tank of 7 liters, in the footrest, and the battery relocated in the rear of the front shield. The area in which it is housed in a practical storage compartment with USB socket, and hook racks. Without prejudice to the roominess, which is wide between the saddle and the handlebar. The Medley, rather, it is generally comfortable, even after a couple of hours of driving.
The seat, which is equipped with electric opening, has been redesigned to blend in aesthetically with the roof-rack series, a factor that increases the possibility of transport. Do not think, however, that the Medley is only a “mule”. The good stability provided by the unchanged frame, a quality that cannot coexist in the “good security”, adds comfort thanks to the new suspension. Drive a Medley is easy, as is appropriate in an exemplary vehicle, pleasure city, is fun, excellent handling characteristics, and is relatively safe, and that it is for the good footprint on the ground of the wheels both for the ability to stop and spaces quite small. The ABS Bosch two-channel is standard; only in the S version, the Medley, adopts brake discs with profile daisy” that is able to cool more quickly.
this Is one of the differences with the model “base”, the one more oriented to a less public youth: in sober colours, to choose between the three, saddle brown and finishes in bronze, matte, as well as rims in silver colour. That on the S, to be consistent with the sports style, are black, as are other details, while red are the shock absorbers. The engines “i-get” are new, the Start&Stop system is quiet and straightforward to do. The single cylinder, in the “basic” version as in the S, can be chosen between two displacements: 125 cc, power 11 kW, consumption declared in the cycle average of 41.5 km/l, or 150, 12,1 kW and 41 km/l.
If the first is great complete scooter is used mainly in the city, the 150 cc from the Medley that gloss that makes you want to go on the hills in the end of the week. The system of connectivity Piaggio, MINE is also voice commands - is standard on the S version - the perfect kit to a completely digital instrumentation, a display that is common to the two series of Medley, clear, always readable, and the generous guidance. Prices between 3.399 and 3.699 Euros.
