This is my 4th review of the Piaggio X9 500. I now have 47,000 miles on this scooter. The engine is a work horse. I use it every day year round taking me to work and back home again.
Things I like...
The Engine and Transmissions are great. Does not use any oil, steadily get 62 mpg, accelerates nicely, and is very smooth. handles great even over 80 mph, have done 109 mph in it and does not complain.
Things I do not like... Piaggio service is awful, expensive and slow to get parts. Eats brakes. Seating position can be awkward and the handling could be slightly better, leaning into sharp turns really can make your knuckles turn white.
If you really want a maxi scooter, then this is the one you want.
