Motorcycle insurance bargains: Piaggio X7 250ie

Motorcycle insurance costs are an important consideration for any bike buyer. That's why MCN is highlighting some of the best cheap-to-insure motorcycles out there. This time it's the Piaggio X7 250ie.               

Insurance group: 7
Engine: 244cc v-twin
Power: 22bhp
Top speed: 80mph 
Weight: 173kg                        

The Piaggio X7 250 is halfway between a full-on maxi scooter and a lightweight city scooter, so in theory should offer comfort and a bit of class with some traffic busting ability. It manages it too – it feels substantial and quality but slices traffic like a 50cc scooter. Plus it's only group 7 to insure.   

The 250cc single-cylinder engine is used across the Piaggio group, and feels the same here – the CVT transmission makes a fast getaway simple. It makes navigating tricky city streets and traffic fuss free, which is important in a commuter.    

The X7 250 ie handles very well for a scooter – the light steering is matched with good stability from the larger wheels. It feels safe and confident.

Just under £3000 is a reasonable price for a useful, practical and quality commuter scooter – it’s cheaper than rivals and offers most things a commuting rider will need.
