Yamaha Tricity 155:

For some problems in the left leg I needed a scooter with flat platform to rest the feet, now I do not do many miles and then I just need a light vehicle and that consumes little petrol (40 km with a liter); I will use it only in the summer to walk along the coastal area of my area so I'll settle. Hi.

Nice looking bike. I don't believe these are available in the US?

You don't believe correctly.
I saw a couple in Italy. They are pretty neat little bikes.

Yes, it is smaller than the Piaggio MP3 300 but its advantage is the lower weight (240 kg vs. 165 kg.) and its greater agility. My height is 1.85 meters and the weight is 90 kg. and although not the best comfort is a good vehicle for small trips; Here the price of gasoline is 1.70 liter and an average salary is 1200 - 1500 per month; a pensioner takes from 600 to 1200 (me). Vehicle consumption is an important item.
In Italy the price of MP3 300 is 8,000 and the price of Tricity is 4,500 ... about half. The price of a Vespa 300 GTS Super is 6,100, Vespa Primavera 150 is 5,100.

In Rome you could rent them like a Zip car. There was one parked near the apartment we stayed in on our visit to Rome last year. We saw it when we came back after returning the Vespa 300s we rented. It was still there the next morning but gone when we came back from our visit to the coliseum

Beautiful Looking Scooter
Attila,

We suffer in the USA for our relatively limited purchasing and use of scooters.
We just do not get the models you are lucky to be able to pick from.

I think that Yamaha looks super - I would buy it.

I tested one with a 180cc upgrade and it was awesome fun.
The only thing lacking is the park brake like Piaggio has.
Change the rollers is enough to get some more fun out of it.
They are quite sedate in standard form. It's a commuter so they really tone down the fun factor but easily rectified.

Enjoy.

It 's funny to think that here in Italy you can admire the Harley Davidson very few, but they have high prices to keep them while you have immense spaces and long and well kept roads, there are those who use the scooters and I I am amazed to see you doing the coast at coast with tiny scooters; really ... you have my highest esteem and respect.
Waiting for the Yamaha 3 CT:
Ciao Bob.
PS: I'm an invalid who is not resigned to using only the car and as long as I can get on the saddle with a handlebar in front, I'll do it.

Massive Geography and Super Roads
Ciao Attila,

You are right. The 100 to 1 use of motorcycles over scooters does have a
lot to do with riding longer distances here in the USA. Even the use of motorcycles is limited because 40% of the country is froze out in the Winter.

Even when I lived in Italia, I had a motorcycle because I wanted to ride on the
AutoStrada and range over the entire country. The second day I arrived in Bella
Italia, I went to the local motorcycle shop and purchased a 1971 Ducati 350 Scrambler. Some of my best memories are on that bike in every back road from Venice to Sicily.

Very nice bike. It was on my shortlist when I got the Xmax.

But being 65 it was impossible for me to squeeze in.

If I where shorter Id defo have one.

Hope you enjoy it

After six months from the purchase i can leave a comment on the impressions I had from my new vehicle; a liter of fuel is needed to travel 35 km on average (speed around 80 - 90 km / h), the maximum speed indicated is 115 km / h (real with gps just below 110 km / h). Discrete shooting, good in the city but suffers on the uphill roads (I must also lose a little weight! ) Average noise. Integral ABS full braking (bar drive slightly spongy). Excellent road holding. Lights (full led) OK. Sufficient driving position for drivers up to 1.80 meters high. Good plastic quality, no noise, some imperfections in some thicknesses (too thin).
