PIAGGIO MEDLEY IS THE NEW EASY SCOOTER, FULLY LOADED AND TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED, THAT COMBINES THE BENEFITS OF A LIGHTWEIGHT HIGH WHEEL WITH THE COMFORT AND FEATURES OF A SUPERIOR CLASS SCOOTER.PIAGGIO MEDLEY IS POWERED BY THE NEW i GET 125 AND 150 CC ENGINES, ELECTRONICALLY FUEL INJECTED, LIQUID COOLED AND WITH 4 VALVE TIMING.A NEW FAMILY OF SINGLE CYLINDER ENGINES THAT RAISES THE BAR IN TERMS OF QUALITY, RELIABILITY AND EMISSIONS CONTAINMENT.
The bearing structure of the Piaggio Medley is based on a new “low single cradle” type frame made of steel tubing reinforced with pressed steel that contributes to its overall sturdiness, maintaining a low and convenient seating position.
The front end is characterised by a fork with 33 mm stanchions in diameter, whereas a pair of double acting shock absorbers and coil springs with preload adjustable to 5 positions work at the rear axle.
Thanks to this configuration, to the large wheel rims (16” front and 14” rear) made of aluminium alloy with an elegant six split spoke design and the tyres (100/80 front and 110/80 rear), Piaggio Medley guarantees riding comfort, road holding and stability worthy of higher class vehicles, while the contained weight, 132 kg kerb weight, allows the rider to maintain all the agility and manoeuvrability that are the strong points of lightweight scooters.
Medley achieves the goal of creating a new class of Piaggio high wheel scooter that combines the benefits of an agile and lightweight scooter with those of a larger and higher performance high wheel.
Coming standard with the “Start & Stop” feature which, by managing engine switch-off and start-up during stops, contributes to containing fuel consumption and emissions as well as two-channel ABS, Piaggio Medley therefore boasts an equipment package that is normally reserved for superior class scooters.
Two 4-stroke engines from the new i-get family are available - 125 and 150 cc - both liquid cooled with 4 valve timing and electronic fuel injection.This is a new family of engines designed and developed by Piaggio which boasts a scooter engine research and development centre, one of the most advanced in the world.The agility of a metropolitan vehicle combined with the dynamic character of a high wheel and the convenience and cargo capacity of a large GT scooter GT resulted in the Medley, the new Piaggio that combines ultra-modern values of rationality, technology and style.Medley blends practicality, technical innovation and beauty in the purest Italian style, fully comprehending the continuously evolving needs of a public in search of mobility solutions that go beyond the usual scooter formula. Piaggio Medley skilfully combines the benefits of a chassis characterised by large diameter wheels, which guarantee superior rideability and road holding compared with smaller wheeled scooters, and the rationality of a classic scooter, its protection, its cargo capacity, the comfort of its large saddle when riding two-up.The high wheel scooter has been very successful, divided up into lightweight and manoeuvrable vehicles characterised by an easy ride and economic operating costs, and more important vehicles with qualities such as sturdiness and performance.Piaggio, the European leader among major global scooter manufacturers, a company with a unique heritage as the creator of new forms of light mobility, has been a protagonist in the high wheel segment with both easy and lightweight scooters such as the Liberty, as well as with scooters that have spectacular performance and exclusive technical features such as the Beverly range.
