I've got one of the 250cc models, and I love it. I've only ever had one other scooter, a cheap 150cc two-wheeler, but I've never felt the Piaggio to be that heavy, and despite the extra wheel, it feels just like riding a regular motorbike. The locking mechanism did take me a few days to get the hang of, but now I almost never have to put my feet down at a stop. I have a 35 mile round-trip commute to work and back five days a week, mostly highway riding, and get around 58 MPG. The 250cc and 400cc models have under-seat and trunk storage that holds at least four small grocery bags full of stuff. The 500cc model looks cooler, but has less storage space. There is a nice pannier rack available for the 500cc one, though, that won't fit on the smaller models. If you ever get a chance for a test ride, I highly recommend trying one out. If you don't want to spring for a new one, there's a chance you might be able to find a decent used one someplace like craigslist.

I've been thinking about getting one of these for short trips around town as an alternative to a Moped, but they are quite hard to get hold of with very few importers in the UK. Can you help?
