British Summer Time ends on 29th October, when the clocks ‘fall’ back, heralding the start of chillier and damper journeys.

Fortunately, help is at hand for owners of Piaggio scooters who plan to continue riding through autumn/winter, with a range of weatherproof accessories tailor-made for their vehicles.

Leg covers are popular in Piaggio’s native Italy, providing protection from wind and wet for riders who prefer to wear casual trousers. Designed with a quick and easy mounting system, tailored for each model of scooter, they will not affect stability, even at high speed. Access to ignition and the under-seat storage compartment are built in, along with an integrated waterproof seat cover and anti-theft system. Reflective stripes offer additional passive safety in the dark.

Handlebar muffs shield exposed hands from inclement weather. Made from waterproof material with a thermo-padded polyamide inner lining, they keep hands warm and dry, without needing to invest in special gloves for winter riding.

Scooters also need protection from the elements! Piaggio’s outdoor scooter cover is produced using black waterproof fabric with thermo-taped joints, reflective inserts, a transparent window so the licence plate can be seen without lifting the cover, and PVC coated chain ring, so the cover can be locked at the same time as the bike. Designed with pockets for accessories (e.g. top box, windscreen) and with an adjustable elastic hem, a perfect fit is guaranteed. As a deterrent against thieves, security experts also recommend using bike covers for any scooter parked in a public place.

Prices vary according to the model of scooter – the following are retail prices (including VAT) for the Beverly; bike cover = £78, leg cover = £100 and muffs = £41.

With scooter theft on the rise and in the headlines, both the Metropolitan Police and MotorCycle Industry Association (MCIA) are advising riders to layer security, using more than one device to maximise protection.
