2010 Piaggio Fly 150

By Alan(Owner), 6, 2011

Having bought my a Vespa LX 150 in June 2010, she me to buy a scooter so we could travel town together.

I’ve a motorcycle rider for more 30 years. and not really into but I bought a 2010 Fly 150 as an end-of-season

After riding both th. e LX 150 and Fly 150, they are certainly similar but there are some differences.

Both use a pretty identical Piaggio 150 engine but the swing-arm / engine casing on the Fly 150 is a longer to accommodate the 12 inch wheel. The Fly 150 has 12 inch wheels front a rear while the LX 150 has an 11 inch front wheel and a 10 rear.

As a result (along with the fork geometry, as noted on one of the reviews) the Fly 150 feels a little stable over road

Conversely, the steering on the Vespa is a quicker and arguably the Vespa a little more nimble, this only shows in a comparison.

Many point to the that the bodywork on the Fly 150 is plastic the Vespa is metal. You would the metal bodywork to last but most motorcycles, including my BMW plastic body panels so I particularly concerned.

In fact, with the lighter bodywork, the Fly 150 has less weight to and feels a little faster the LX 150.

The suspension, on the Fly 150 seems a stiffer; even with the rear shock at its softest so the Vespa scores as being the comfortable of the two.

The price between the Vespa and the Piaggio is when looking at the trim and

The Vespa uses lots of to give that authentic look. whereas similar on the Fly 150 are painted metal or plastic. The also has an integrated engine with a chip in the ignition which the Fly doesn’t.

The Piaggio Fly production was moved Italy to a plant in China a of years ago but it appears that has retained good build controls and the Fly 150 feels pretty bolted together. and pretty on a par to the Italian built Vespa LX

As I purchased the Fly 150 near the end of the riding I haven’t ridden a huge on it yet but so far the only issue would to be that the engine idle is set a little high. That can be adjusted by removing a cover the seat. and I’ll get to that I start riding again in the Otherwise, it hasn’t set a foot

As I mentioned above, I’m really of a motorcycle rider but, for errands around town, I’m taking to using the scooter. The gas is amazing. I’ll run the Fly all week. and a from reserve to full is five bucks! (Same for the Vespa LX, of course).

Wish I say the same for my truck.

Both scooters can provide under-seat storage and small bin (glove-box?) in the fairing in front of the legs. Both also a ‘shopping-bag’ hanger, on the leading of the seat. Optional ‘Top-Boxes’ are for the Piaggio and Vespa if needed.

As I there are deals to be had on these particularly if you like in a region the dealers are now in the slow “non-riding”

In summary, the Vespa LX 150 has that style and that “cool-factor”. The Fly 150 has of a contemporary style and looks to other modern scooters on the It costs less than the but performs just as well.
