Has anyone had or have one of these?

I'm thinking of selling 300 and buying an older nexus and I seem to keep hearing mixed reviews from crap to really good.

So any good?

Also were they only made during 2004 because that's all that seem to be for sale?

Lovely bikes to ride by all accounts. They were made for quite a while - up to 2009 at least. The engine is the standard Master thumper, but was mounted through the hole much more to the centre of the engine (these came with two mounting points) - which led to a much better ride as the unsprung weight was at least better balanced in the first place.

That era of Piaggio bikes had their own peculiar set of standard problems - which the better dealers had sorted out in no time at all.

Huskyteer of this forum had one for some time - and passed her IAM test on it.
