Like New - 150 cc Derbi Boulevard Scooter

Excellent Condition - Well maintained Vespa-like, with Piaggio engine.

Economical 4 stroke engine, Sits 2 people Highway Compliant Scooter. REVIEW Derbi Boulevard 150 Derbi is one of those names that has a little resonance with long-time motorcycle enthusiasts. The Spanish brand is now owned by Italian maker Piaggio It's been a significant player in grand prix racing over the years, and remains a force in the 125 race class, projecting a youthful and fun image in Europe, though its profile in Australia has generally been under the radar. Maybe that's about to change.

For people in the mid-range scooter market - which can be vaguely defined as the 150-250cc class, there's a wealth of choice, to the point of being baffling. However you'll find that a number Euro brands are using Piaggio powerplants, and the 150 fan-cooled four-stroke is a pretty useful bit of kit. It's matched to a full auto CVT transmission and will push your average scoot to about an indicated 110kmh top speed when given a decent run-up, with a 90-100 cruise achievable in most situations. So it's freeway-friendly, and quite able to hold its own in your average metro traffic snarl.

Accommodation and seat height are about what you expect for this class, with the seat height being reasonable and there's enough room to squeeze in a pillion if you really need to. Though the latter could use some decent handgrips.

There's just enough room for a full-size full-face helmet under the seat, and there's a small glovebox, plus a shopping bag hook located just under the steering head.

A real highlight of the Boulevard is its suspension and handling. It runs medium-size wheels (13-inchers), which assist in giving stable and quickish steering, while the well thought-out suspension gives the rider a lot of confidence. Particularly under hard braking, which is where some scooters struggle
