Perfect daily commute
The most versatile scooter in the market for sure. Enough power to go to the M1 at 110kph and then turning off your exit for a really comfy 80kph max ride to your work. As it is does have flat floor, you can accommodate both feet on it and your work clothes won't get dirty at all unless it is raining. Very good on fuel around 40km/l. Easy to maintain and it is still a low cost scooter to service even though it is an Aprilia. However, service costs go astronomically higher if you go for the 500cc or 750cc. Lots of extra technology there as well as lots of Tupperwares to remove to get access to the parts.

I am glad I waited for the 2010 model and would have liked to buy 300cc or 500cc model but these scooters dont have flat floor so I would keep my Beo 200ie for everyday shopping to take home goods on the floor. I would have liked to have gear selection for cornering without applying brakes.
Commuting everyday on Beo 200ie 2010 model has so far been smooth and no trouble really. I find it easier to travel into the city or go shopping. Fuel indicator lets you know when to refill. No wonder its hardly ever resold on as several Sacarbeo owners kee...
