The 2012 Piaggio Fly 150 made its debut at the EICMA show. Like its predecessors, the 2012 model features a European style, modern safety systems and an ergonomic design. The 2012 Piaggio Fly 150 sits on 12 inch wheels wrapped in tubeless tires which provide stability and good maneuverability even in congested traffic situations.
At the heart of the Piaggio Fly 150 lies a compact 124 cc single cylinder, four stroke engine which delivers a pretty good fuel efficiently and has enough grunt to help you deal effortless with city traffic.
As far as comfort goes, the rider is greeted by a supportive low seat and a sporty handle bar. You also get a spacious under-seat storage compartment which is big enough to accommodate a full-sized helmet.
The 2012 Piaggio Fly 150 is available at a starting price of $2899.

The scooter’s 150cc air-cooled, four-stroke, carbureted engine has no problem negotiating the hills on campus roads…. The scooter kept up nicely with traffic. Its four-stroke engine also is nice and quiet; a pedestrian asked me at one stop if it was electric powered.
