Hi, Checking if there are any dealers/mechanics who buy or salvage parts from Motorcycle/Scooters.
My Piaggio X8 has heating problems and need overhaul, gave up :( and want to scrap to get the COE left back. It has a nice box, exterior other parts all in good condition.

Normally bike riders try to 'dekit' their bikes online before scrapping. Honestly most dealers are more interested in commissions from finance and insurance than stuffing around w parts.

Like PNGMK said, take off the good parts, sell them on Singapore Bike Forum. Then scrap the bike. They really won't care what's on it... they just want the vehicle numbers to match the documentation.

Google some Piaggio/Vespa workshops and try to call them. Some must buy it because I was offered a few times replacements with the used parts. I am owning X9 and have already problems with buying brand new parts so for x8 it should be even more severe, and there are still many x8 on the roads.

Of course no harm to try the SBF too - lots of workshop owners over there.
