As far as I'm aware, this bike is basically the Gilera GP800.

Taking the thing apart to do services costs an arm and a leg in hours.

Is that the only BV350 that was there? Did they have any other colors? The website is showing that black is also available. Just wondering.....

350 pictures
Hi all,
Just chiming in. If there is any way to get more pictures of the 350, especially in black, that would be great!!
I'm waiting for a ride report on the 350, but if anyone at the dealer show could grace us with their first impressions, that would be great too!
Thanks!

330cc plus that new clutch they have to be pretty quick. I imagine these will be the number one seller in Italy before long. They should do pretty well here too. The release of the this scooter reminds of back when the GT200 was coming out. Lots of interest...

Thanks so much for the pics and quick response.
It looks great. Have you had a chance to sit on it yet? I'm really curious about the seat, it's one of my pet peeves on the GTS.
Meanwhile, I love those tires and I dont even mind the red seat, which I thought would be a deal breaker for me.
I'm all systems go on this scoot.
Wrap one up.

I really like the BV350 in all of it's many colours but the 850 leaves me cold I'm afraid.
I love the way the BV300 handles but it......oh I've just run out of words.

Can anyone see that badger ?

Edit - Is the final drive on the 850 still a chain ?
