Piaggio reveal 2021 Beverly scooter range with Euro5 300 and 400 models
Piaggio have revealed a revised Beverly scooter line-up for 2021, consisting of two A2-licence friendly mid-sized machines, which the Italian firm say combine the agility of an urban twist-and-go with the performance and road handling of a larger, big-wheeled GT.
Both machines will replace the company's existing Beverly 300, which meets its demise thanks to more stringent emissions regulations. Available as both a standard and sportier Beverly S model, these newcomers will also offer a choice of 300cc or 400cc four-valve singles and feature more tech, new styling and revised chassis parts.

With both town-friendly motors getting liquid-cooling and electronic injection, the new 300cc variant produces a peak output of 25.5bhp at 8000rpm – a claimed 23% increase in shove over the current model. Maximum torque is also up by a suggested 15%, meaning 19.2lbft at 6250rpm. Elsewhere, the new 400 packs a healthy 34.9bhp at 7500rpm and 27.8lbft at 5500rpm.
Looking after that rise in power is revised chassis components, with the steel tubular frame working in tandem with new 35mm Showa forks and pre-load adjustable dual shocks to ensure a claimed refined, quality road holding. Rims are lightweight alloy and get a fresh seven-spoke design, with a 16in on the front and 14in on the rear.
This is then wrapped in fresh bodywork, available in a range of glossy and matt colour finishes. There is full LED lighting, as well as a new number plate bracket, plus keyless ignition, a 5.5in LCD display and mobile phone connectivity.
