Unquestionably the best small scooter on the market.
I purchased my Medley S in march 2019 as a support to my 500cc scooter mainly for shorter trips and fuel economy. The medley has exceeded my expectations. Mine is standard except for a Shad 34 litre top box which I rarely use as there is so much space under the seat. The seat release is well placed easy to use and promotes use of the space beneath meaning that I rarely leave my helmet and gloves on the seat when away from the bike. My fuel consumption has been consistent at 40ks to the litre even allowing for the occasional freeway blast where ...even with my 103 kilo weight on board 100kph is easily achieved and rock steady. The stop start function works very well although it takes some time to kick in when the weather is very cold. Lights are very good and brakes excellent. I have not needed the ABS function but its good to know its there. The scoot has a side stand and a centre stand which is rare for small scooter and is a definite safety feature. All in all the medley is a superb midrange scooter and although not the cheapest on the market well worth the money. I paid $6000 ride away which included the Top Box

By far the best scooter I have owned.
Huge space under the seat. I can store my helmet and jacket in there easily. And can fit laptop in when I’m riding to work. It is super smooth, handles incredibly well. Nimble in traffic. Good amount of power. Easily enough to ride 2 up. Awesome build quality. And quiet as well. Very happy.

An incredible piece of automotive engineering. Perfect in the city, returning 40km/L, while the real surprise is that it is capable of touring; holding a constant 110km/hr and returning a respectable minimum of 22km/L. I've crossed the Nullarbor twice on this scooter, much to the bemusement of 4 wheel drivers.
Some of the good points:
No screen is required.
No top box is required.
You can strap cartons/items onto the back easily.
There is enough poke from the lights.
The Engine stop tech is genius (why you would choose to turn it off with a...

Well built and good performing metro commuter.
Took out a Piaggio Medley for ride home in peak hour Adelaide traffic.
Being a two wheeled enthusiast, I've always admired the practical advantage a scooter has over a bike for commuting.
I'm still not 100% sure if a scooter is necessarily a lot cheaper than a motorbike. Servicing cost for the Piaggio Fly was quoted to me at $265 for the 1000km service, $365 for the 6000km service and around $600 for a major service incl. belts etc. I gave you the Fly cost because the Medley is newer and they couldn't give me figures as they haven't serviced...
