Piaggio launched the new BV 350 scooter in May 2012. The bike is built on a new frame and is powered by the latest Piaggio engine. The power plant has a 350 cc displacement and develops a maximum output of 33.3 hp.

On the safety side of things, the Piaggio BV 350 is equipped with front 300 mm and rear 240 disc brakes combined with ABS / ASR.

The scooter has received a new variable transmission which uses a multi-disc automatic clutch in an oil bath with an automatic lubrication system. Other features offered by the Piaggio BV 350 are a double-cradle steel frame, 35mm fork, 16-inch front wheel, 14-inch rear, and four-position spring preload adjustable rear suspension.

You also get a generous under seat luggage compartment which is large enough to host two helmets while additional storage capability is enabled by a luggage rack with integrated passenger grab handles and a retractable bag hook.
