Heck of a thing to have to go fishing.....

The 50 or the 150?
Let's talk!

Has Piaggio sold so few LIBERTY's here in the States - or is it that Liberty owners are too busy smiling and riding to share their complaints?

Any way to learn how many LIBERTY's have been sold here since introduced in 2017?

No problems with mine, 2020 150 with just over 4,000 miles. I have done the required maintenance. Put a new tire on the back, adjusted valves, changed fluids and filters, spark plug.

I have modified mine with a malossi variator and the plug in emulator thank you Scooterpartsco and also added aftermarket akrapovic exhaust that I got from a theft recovery parts bike.

It is stronger with the mods faster acceleration and top speed very happy riding it like it is fun factor 10.9!

We will see how long it lasts and after I get some more miles on it I will check the plug to see how it is doing.

I don't know how many sold but the local dealer had a killer deal on a new 150 and there are some good deals on new 50 Liberty's in Vegas. Time will tell I guess.

The only thing I question is how when I first got mine they wanted you to get a new CDI if you were going to big bore it, then they came out and said it "runs well enough" with just the plug in emulator. I decided to try the plug in emulator without big bore kit just to see what it would do and like I said above it is faster and stronger and more fun to ride like that.

The air cooled units in the Sprint / Primavera / Liberty are bulletproof.

They've been running these same engines for 10 years now, and have perfected the recipe. Less to check, much less that goes wrong.

Have you got the Mymoover stateside? Saw a lot these recently in Italy being used by the postal service. Might be the liberty front end?

Just got my 2024 Liberty 150 S about two months ago and coming up on 100 miles. Zero issues so far. Added a top case and the side stand (side stand really should be standard - am very much enjoying having the option of side or center stand).

Have acquired the tools I need to do oil changes and valve adjustments. Zen and the art of scooter maintenance.

Although I'm trying to sell mine for health reasons, it's run perfectly for the year + I've owned it. I've got a top case, flyscreen with deflector, and Malossi Multivar kit with the white clutch spring. It's good for a steady 55mph (GPS) at less than WOT and will touch 62 on level ground after a long run up.
No issues at all (well, the irritating refueling touchiness, maybe).

No on the mymover- sounds like a Liberty for delivering pizzas!
I read some time ago that Piaggio has built something over 900,000 of this type big wheel, A/C scooter!

Thanks for your reply!

Please note that AF1Racing sells this for the LIBERTY. (pd $7 for it in 2017)
OEM Piaggio Workshop Manual - DL-1Q000412

Belt changes require some special tools.
Gaskets, washers, filter for the oils.
A new valve cover gasket and feeler blades for valve check. (some can be re-used, but why take the chance?)

Hardest part of a valve check, first time, for me was freeing the dam clamp on the breather hose to the valve cover. I didn't know a small screw-driver would spread it for removal! I cut it off!

That service manual down-load is a challenge, sometimes....as are the guys who wrote it! But better than nothing!

That case looks good on your white scooter.
Probably a good deal cheaper than the price of Piaggio's base plate and top case. I paid @$400 for the case and Plate.
Other than an Iridium NGK, I'm stock.
Never felt the need for more speed.

I downloaded the service manual from AF1 but believe it is now up to $17!
