NEW 2020 Piaggio Medley and Medley Sport!
Exciting news from the Piaggio camp today as the NEW 2020 Piaggio Medley is finally available here in Australia!
Building on the already awesome Medley this upgraded version has some exciting new features and great colours.
2 versions are available as always with the Sport being the top spec of the 2 although they both share the same 150cc iGET (Italian Green Engineered Technology) engine, ABS brakes and Start/Stop.
Read on below for full details on the changes and story behind this new 2020 model!
The Medley was designed to meet the multiple needs of contemporary mobility: Practical and Easy but at the same time Fun and Safe to drive.
The size and performance of the Medley make it a 360-degree scooter, it can be used in the city for daily commuting and over the weekend for trips over medium-range.
A distinctive feature of Medley is the slim central tunnel, taken from the concept of Beverly. This solution allows to have a large under saddle compartment and a greater rigidity of the frame which translates into better stability of the vehicle. Piaggio Medley conceives urban mobility in a smart and efficient way linking functionality with contemporary style. The first important key is the agility, ease of driving and lightness; the second key is the innovative crossover line between high wheel and GT scooter, stability and load capacity.
Modern and dynamic, Medley 2020 is offered in two variants, a classic and a Sport version.
The shield and the handlebars have been completely redesigned and re-proportioned, introducing new stylistic elements and welcoming the new full LED projector and the new LCD instrument, in a perfect mix of style and functionality. On the front shield the new three-dimensional honeycomb grid bursts in, with the classic chrome frieze, a reinterpretation in a more modern and sportier key of the classic “tie”, the unmistakable element of Piaggio vehicles.
A new saddle with a sleeker design and optimized ergonomics for both rider and passenger has been introduced. The vehicle is completed by wheels with a new design that give a sportier look. The electric opening of the saddle takes place through the convenient handlebar control. To avoid accidental closures there is a retaining spring that keeps the saddle open.
The new Medley overall is characterized by a more dynamic and aggressive line, but without distorting the unmistakable character of the vehicle. The "wraparound" front combines with the "slim" rear thanks to the tunnel which becomes an element of continuity, aerodynamic and functionality. Quality and attention to detail are also perceived in the colour combinations used for bodywork, saddle and details.
LED lamp - The introduction of the new full LED headlight, more effective than traditional headlights, has significantly increased visibility with a consequent improvement in driving safety. LED technology is also used for position lights and gives the new Medley a unique personality, making it easily identifiable among other scooters in any light condition
LCD dash - The MODE button is on both the new instrument and the right side of the handlebar. With short presses of the MODE key, the following information can be displayed cyclically on the multifunction panel:
• Full speed
• Average speed
• Instant consumption
• Average consumption
• Autonomy (kilometres / miles)
• Battery charge status
Connectivity (Sport version) -The Piaggio app represents the access point to the vehicle's connectivity functions (the MIA platform is standard on Version Sport) and provides an effective complement to the new electronic dashboard. The app is structured in different screens dedicated to the various groups of additional functions:
• DATA MANAGEMENT
• VEHICLE MANAGEMENT
• PIAGGIO WORLD 18 TECHNOLOGY
If a smartphone is connected to the MIA multimedia system (standard on the Sport version), the MODE button on the right of the handlebar allows you to manage telephone calls and music (play list).
According to Piaggio tradition, Medley also aims to differentiate itself from the competition for the attention to detail and the technical solutions adopted. An exclusive of Medley is the slim central tunnel where the fuel tank is hidden. The position of the tank under the footrest has three important advantages:
1. The under saddle has no bulk and have a high load capacity, up to two helmets.
2. The possibility of refuelling without lifting the saddle, so if the gasoline is filled, you don’t even get off the vehicle.
3. The lowering of the centre of gravity for more stable driving.
Other prominent elements that confirm the quality sought by the Piaggio design to guarantee customers a high degree of satisfaction are the front trunk, with opening through the ignition lock, useful for storing small items. Inside there is a USB socket for charging the smartphone. There is also a battery access door for easy maintenance and the retractable bag hook has had an operation improvement operation.
The powerful braking system consists of a generous Ø 260 mm disc at the front and an Ø 240 mm disc at the rear, with dual piston floating callipers. The braking system is equipped with an ABS anti-lock braking system (on both brake discs) as standard.
On the Sport version, to emphasize its sporty character, the callipers are in gold colour and the discs have a wave shape. The standard anti-lock used is the Bosch two-channel ABS system: the ultimate in reliability and efficiency the systems adopted on Medley provide a 360° safety concept for both the vehicle and the pilot.
IMMOBILIZER - The immobilizer anti-theft device integrated in the ignition key is standard. The immobilizer is activated automatically by removing the ignition key and is indicated by the flashing of a special warning light in the dashboard.
TILT SENSOR - In the event of a fall, the Start & Stop system is automatically deactivated, and the engine is switched off.
