Is it possible to convert a BMS Palazzo Deluxe 150cc scooter to a more powerful engine?

by SilkeeLuvsScooters!

Hi, I recently found my dream scooter. I am ABSOLUTELY in LOVE with the BMS Palazzo Deluxe 150cc. My concern is, though, that I generally hop on the highway for a little bit to get to work.

I'm a slightly heavier woman, and since the 150cc motors will generally get you up to 55mph, I would expect that for me it would be more like 45-50mph before it was too much pressure (possibly.)

Is there any way to increase the power of this particular scooter model? I would want to try and get the power up 10-15 more mph...

If that's asking too much, do you know if it's ever possible to keep the body frame as it is, but put in a 250cc motor instead?

I absolutely love this scooter - everything about it speaks to me, and I'll be SO disappointed if I end up having to choose against it due to it not meeting my needs the way I desire.

I find that the 250cc models tend to look too much like crotch rockets. Why buy a scooter if you don't want that romantic scooter look? :) The only scooters that are in that style that have higher powered motors are the Vespa GTS Super and the Kymco People 250, but those are out of my price range. :(

Thank you for any advice!

First, that scooter can be had in other versions with 12" wheels. It doesn't sound like much but the extra wheel size really does help. Second, a 115mm variator with 14 gram sliders or rollers helps the top end a little and combined with 12" wheels can help you cruise at 55 mph with a possible top speed of 60. That's all you'll really get out of this style scooter no matter what anyone tells you.
You could look at the Tomos version in a 150. It has a better engine and a higher top speed for around $1700. Go to their web site to find a dealer near you.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.
