Gilera's profilation of this bike
An entirely new breed of scooter. By crossing the sporty characteristics of the Gilera Brand with the performance provided by the MASTER 500cc electronic injection engine, the Gilera Nexus is the first Sport Gran-Turismo scooter. Combining motorcycle technology and maintaining the advantages of a scooter the Nexus displays several mechanical solutions, usually only seen on a motorcycle, that provide racing performance and extraordinary manoeuvrability while keeping the vehicle safe and stable at high speeds. The innovative ´Power Drive´ rear shock absorber system is fully adjustable to suit different riding style and road conditions. Moreover, the engine is rigidly mounted to the frame through the ´Direct Link´ ensuring excellent handling and with the linked braking system, especially developed for the Nexus, the Gilera Nexus provides powerful and controllable braking in all conditions
