The Piaggio Beverly range has been updated for 2017 and now includes the Beverly by Police model
The Piaggio Beverly range, a leader in the high wheel scooter segment now has Euro 4 compliant engines, a more complete equipment package, new livery with dedicated trimming and a sporty and aggressive package in the Beverly by Police.
Launched in 2001, Piaggio Beverly revolutionised the medium engine capacity scooter market, introducing an attractive design, brilliant performance and extremely safe package, not only because of the large diameter wheels, but also thanks to the motorcycle-style chassis.
Beverly’s commercial success has always been accompanied by constant updates that have kept it at the top of its sales segment and the desires of the most advanced metropolitan users.
The latest is the arrival of the SportTouring top of the range version that introduced, for the first time on a scooter, the ABS/ASR safety system duo and an innovative 350 engine with record setting performance.
With Beverly, Piaggio completes its high wheel scooter offer capable of meeting any and all daily mobility needs. The Piaggio high wheel entry level is called Liberty, completely new and equipped with ABS and the new Piaggio i-Get engine in the air cooled version.
The passage from the entry level Liberty scooter to the large and luxurious Beverly is marked by the arrival of Medley, with a more complete standard equipment package that includes the “Start&Stop” system, the Piaggio i-Get engine in the liquid cooled version, ABS and an incredible helmet compartment large enough for two flip up helmets.
The new Beverly range therefore represents two benchmarks in the motorcycling progression of Piaggio high wheel scooter customers.
The changes in the Piaggio Beverly 300 and 350 family include that the engines that power the Piaggio Beverly 300 and 350 have obtained Euro 4 approval.
This means that, thanks to the use of a new catalytic converter, a new silencer and an update to the electronic control unit maps, the two Piaggio single-cylinders become Euro 4 approved and maintain the brilliance and performance that have always characterised the Beverly range.
The entire Beverly range now also has more features and a more complete standard equipment package. For all models, the ABS braking system and ASR traction control system are now included as standard equipment.

The remote control to open the saddle and find your vehicle by making the indicators flash (“bike finder” function) also comes as standard equipment.
The 12V socket, already included on the entire range, is replaced by the more functional USB port, handy to recharge any modern device.
The entire Piaggio Beverly range is available in new and attractive colour variations, with brand new, dedicated trimming. Piaggio Beverly 300, 300S and by Police also have a new instrument cluster with ABS and ASR warning lights, and the rider can disable the latter using the button on the handlebar.
The new medium engine capacity Piaggio Beverly family
Piaggio Beverly 300: a classic in urban mobility. Safe, reliable, with its 278cc single-cylinder engine providing generous performance.
The ‘Made in Italy’ design is characterised by elegant and popular shapes, where details such as the LED daylight running lights and brake light play a prominent role.
Ideal for city and suburban commutes, thanks to a perfect riding position for the rider, erect and relaxed, excellent air protection and the carrying capacity of the helmet compartment, large enough to hold two flip up helmets.
Piaggio Beverly 300 S: the most sporty version of Beverly adds dedicated colour schemes and matt dark grey painted details that give it a young and aggressive look.
The Piaggio Beverly 300 S also stands out for its chassis, inspired by a motorcycle chassis, with the fuel tank in a central position under the foot board to centralise the weight (at the same time freeing up space in the helmet compartment) for a more satisfying and safe riding experience, whether in or out of the city.
Piaggio Beverly 300 by Police: a special version of the Beverly 300 that stems from the combination of two Italian traditions of excellence like Piaggio and Police.
This version also has all the technical characteristics that have made Piaggio Beverly so popular, including the liquid cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke, four-valve engine – quick, reliable and parsimonious (31.3 km/l in the WMTC cycle).
Piaggio Beverly 350 Sport Touring: the flagship of the Beverly range stands out for its equipment package and the benchmark performance provided by the 330cc single-cylinder engine.
This is an innovative unit, not only compared with the engines that power the Piaggio Beverly 300, but also compared with the competition in general. This is an engine designed to provide performance comparable to a 400 cc engine, but with compact dimensions and reduced weight in line with a 300cc engine.
This is the only engine in the category to use an automatic multiplate wet clutch that ensures better and more constant performance over time.
Performance is outstanding in comparison with extremely low fuel consumption: over 30 HP of maximum power and 29 Nm of maximum torque, at 28.6 km/l fuel consumption (for the WMTC cycle).
Versions and colours for the new Beverly range
The Piaggio Beverly 300 is available in the classic and popular Bianco Iceberg colour scheme or in the new matt Grigio Ardesia variation.
