The Piaggio Beverly / BV monocycle was presented was in 2004 in the USA. It was the first large wheeled model which was offered from Piaggio in the Northern America. The first model was called BV 200. The later models of the line were called BV 200 (2004 - 2007), BV 250 (2006-2010), BV 300 (2010 - 2011) and BV 350 (2005 - 2013), the larger BV Tourer 300 (2010 - till now) and BV Tourer 500 (2010 - till now).
The notion "Italian scooter" means comfortable, secure, powerful and economic vehicle. The Piaggio BV 350 / Beverly Sport Touring is wonderful representative of the brande and the whole class.
The new model of 2012-2013, is distinguished due to its special function and a specific design. The specialist of the Piaggio equipped the model with the powerful 1-cylider 4-valved engine with the system of direct injection and the liquid cooling. The construction of the piston-cylinder-unit makes it possible to achieve high speed and capacity of the engine without the increasing of its volume. The system of greasing allows to get compacter construction of the engine and to use less oil. The capacity is 33.3 hp, which is equal to 100 hp for the car.
One more innovation is the special "wet" interlocking. It works together with common variable speed case, the plates of which are dipped into the oil, that’s why the transmission will serve longer and is more secure.
The other pleasant moment is the low fuel consumption, lightweight steel frame and the plastic body. The motorbike has dual adjustable shock absorbers on the rear end and the 35 mm fork on the front end. In addition, it is equipped with combined brake system. When pressing on the right lever, 2 of 3 pistons of the front axis slide assembly respond. When you increase the force on the left lever, the rear brakes and the third pistol attach. It is the traditional scheme for Piaggio scooters.
The scoter is steady on the road; in the beginning, it will seem even hard. The seat is high, the operating overhead is located comfortably for the driver, and everything is of proper quality. The dashboard is luxurious and shows all necessary information. The motorbike has also an enough big trunk.
