Expat47's review of Piaggio X10 350 Executive

★★★★☆

“2012 Piaggio X10 350 Exec.”

Written on: 25/11/2012 by Expat47 (2 reviews written)

I've just bought my X10 a couple of days ago and want to start this review from the beginning of the experience. The X10 is my 2ed scooter as I'm coming off a SYM GTI250i which I was very pleased with.

I was led to the X10 350 Exec. because of the front/rear ABS and anti-skid features which, I feel, are a MUST in big city (Athens, Greece) driving where the white line dividing the lanes is used by most 2wheeled vehicles. (Looks may have played a roll too. ;)

My 1st, overall, impression is very, very positive. Plenty of leg room, very stable machine even though the CG is a bit high. It's very smooth on the highway and, even though it's a large scooter, still quite maneuverable.

The dashboard is dominated by an LED display that leaves me a bit flat as is will not display the current speed but, rather, uses up a major portion of the space for fuel consumption and other non-time critical data.

Expat47's Response to Expat47's Review

I wasn't going to add to my review until much later but I believe that it is important that I let any readers know that I've spotted what could be a very severe problem, at least here in Greece.

When I ordered my X10 I also order the 50ltr top box and would have liked to have a close look at the gel seat. Much to my disappointment, neither one is available! The excuse given is that Piaggio Italy can't supply them.

Last week I ordered a 2ed "normal" key as you are given one "normal" key and one "master" key. If you loose the normal key you can make a new one with the master key but woe unto any who lose the master! Today I stopped by the shop (I was told the key would be there in only 3 days) and was told that they were still waiting for them to come from Italy!

Now, if Piaggio can't supply the after market items they advertise and can't even seem to have enough blank keys to keep their dealers supplied just what is the availability of any parts. New scooters do, from time to time, break down, fall over, and have other mishaps that would require parts to get back on the road. Are there any?

Is this problem unique to Greece? I feel it is a hard question any potential buy should find an honest answer to before buying an X10.
