The 2012 Piaggio Fly 50 4V is the newest motorcycle launched by Piaggio. The scooter was designed with practicality and simplicity in mind and thanks to its versatile character can appeal to a wide range of riders. Perhaps it goes without saying that the new Fly 50 4V incorporates all the technical values and the tasty design language which made Piaggio famous.
The 2012 Piaggio Fly 50 4V is powered by a Single cylinder, 4-stroke, 49.9 cc engine which puts out 8.5 kW at 7,750 rpm and 3.5 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. The company says that the engine has enough grunt to propel the scooter to a maximum speed of 39 mph.

The Fly 50 inherits Piaggio’s tradition of success, using the latest technology and design trends. The result is a reliable vehicle for everyday riding that stands out for its style, comfort and ease of use. Light, compact, and agile, the Fly is easy to use, simple to park, and offers excellent power-to-weight ratio for enhanced performance. With 12" alloy wheels and front disc brakes it may be the best value in the market.
The company is betting that the Fly 50’s strong heritage - plus its sturdy frame, adult-rated supsension and front disc brake - will sway buyers away from less expensive alternatives. Factor in a halogen headlight, a two-up seat and comprehensive instrumentation as standard equipment, and Piaggio looks to have a pretty persuasive argument.
