Piaggio Fly125 will hit the market in Diwali

Recommended Posts

The Italian scooter maker is planning to bring the Fly 125 to Indian market. The scoot could be launched as soon as in Diwali season this year and should come with a price tag of about INR 50,000.

Fly 125, which is already doing duty in international markets, is a lightweight and compact scooter with a 10.5 bhp 124cc single cylinder 2-valve engine. The motor is mated to a CVT transmission and has good fuel efficiency.

The Fly is equipped with a set of telescopic hydraulic shock absorber upfront and twin hydraulic shock absorbers with preload adjuster at the rear. The scooter rides on 12 inch wheels with tubeless tyres. Anchoring duties are courtesy a 200 mm disc and 140mm drum brake for front and rear respectively.

The new Vespa has gained a lot of publicity and have grabbed a lot of eyeballs. However, owing to the high price tag, the sales performance of this lifestyle offering is nothing to write home about. All this is looks ready to change with the introduction of Fly 125, which will be an international offering at a realistic price point.

Just Imagin what buzz will be created if this whole range is launched in India!

If I were CEO of Piaggio, I'ld launch tyfoon & Sport Touring & Concentrate on the scooter segment rather that 6-seater rikshaws!

This will bring company more profit & prestige!

This one should be priced on par with the competitors, else Vespa is in for a big dive southwards.

I think Italian auto maker Piaggio company have to rethink with the price of the scooter which will be launch on Diwali becasue price is one of the major reason.
