Globally, the Fly is most popular model it fully embodies the practical ethos of affordability, convenience and enjoyment.


The first Fly (shown below) was first to North America as a 150cc It debuted in the USA for 2005 and in Canada the year. The smaller Fly 50 followed for the model year in both at first utilizing a 2-… motor before switching to a mill the year after.

the Fly received a major redesign 2013, with this generation Fly (shown above) in the USA as an early release 2014 This updated design was shown at the Milan motorcycle in fall 2011 and entered in fall 2012. This new Fly (below) is almost entirely new with only the 50cc using the same motor.

The more angular look is a restyling for the Fly. The new lines are and modern and should look for quite some time. The is also less generic the first generation, which this model stand out some of the cheaper low end scooters on the

The second generation Fly also in Canada for 2014, but only in form.


The Fly scooters their motors with scooters of the same displacements, often lagging their expensive Vespa counterparts by a or two in getting the latest technological The 2-… Fly 50 (sold only in used Piaggio’s Hi-PER2 which was also found in ET2 50. For 2008, the Fly 50 starting using the group’s 4-… Hi-PER4 that is also found in the LX 50 and S 50.

Brakes / Suspension /

Unlike their Vespa the Fly 50 and 150 use larger 12” wheels provide better stability at speeds. It’s not an issue the 50cc models, but the 150cc can be a little twitchy at top speed due to smaller wheels and high-ride

The job of stopping the first generation of Fly was by a dual piston 200mm brake in the front and a 140mm brake in the rear. Despite specs, the front brake was mediocre. The feel was a bit wooden and it higher than average pull effort.

Good power is there, but it requires a squeeze that other

With the 2014 redesign, increased the front brake to (from 200mm) and lowered the height from 30.9” to which is a welcome change. brake performance is now quite and ride stability is improved.

and Amenities

In practical terms, the Fly score well. The underseat area is quite generous, the caveat that this does get fairly hot due to its engine It’s certainly not a good for storing the ice cream.

It’s not a spot for pets, as Piaggio’s abundant warning stickers tell you. The Fly 50 and 150 have a glovebox which comes in handy and sets this apart from quite a few that offer either an storage area or nothing at


The Fly scooters are sharp so their popularity is easy to They aren’t class in terms of price, technology or but they are well rounded and scooters that score across the board. They are built, supported by a large of dealers and there’s a great community.

The Fly 50 and 150 should appeal to seeking a scooter with a look who’s looking for value, as opposed to just the purchase price. The Fly scooters are featured with enclosed areas, quality and powerful and front disc brakes. The of a proper glove box is small but detail that separates the Fly quite a few competitors.

Piaggio is $2299 for the Fly 50 which is a very price. You can buy cheaper (and featured) scooters like super low priced Agility 50 but most scooters of this sell for a similar price. The Fly 150 for $2999 which is a lot more than its high end motor counterpart, the $4599 Vespa 150.
