anyone else agree with this? I have no experience with italian bikes, but everywhere I read they are generally tough on maintenance. If thats true then Shiver it is.

Why do you want a bike that you don't shift?

I really like the Suzuki M50, but can it be upgraded to have 1000cc's or more? Any is it dependable?

Yes, you take it to a dealer with some extra cash and they give you an M90.

My bad. Been a looong boring day.

M50 eh? Isn't that the Marauder? at 805cc or whatever they are I doubt it'd get to 1000cc's very easily. That's what the M90 and M109R are for.

Marauder? Wasn't that based on the old Madura chassis?

I don't think it was. These look a bit less like a madura heap.

TWO YEAR FACTORY WARRANTY. They probably still offer roadside assistance in the purchase, too. Piaggio is doing their very best to shake the old image. Test ride one. If you don't like it then move on, but I'm betting that you'll be pleased. As for service: What bike doesn't cost you $300-$500 when the valve need adjusting when taking it to a dealer? Other than that- parts are available, dealers are popping up everywhere because if it and reliability is as it should be with this bike. It won't leave you stranded or waiting months for parts.
