While there are many different scooters on the market today, none combines the comfort, class, and easy riding ability of the 2005 Piaggio Fly. For riders of all ages and ability levels looking for a solid scooter, the Italian-produced Piaggio Fly is the bike for them.
At first glance, the thing that stands out about the 2005 Piaggio Fly is its size. Measuring in at 73.6 inches in length, 28.9 inches in width, and with a wheelbase of 52.4 inches, the bike is easily maneuverable for riders of all ages. Further, with a dry weight of just 247 lbs., the bike is easy to handle for just about any rider. This scooter's 30.9 inch seat height gives the driver a clear view of the open road, and driver and passenger seating for two allows a companion to come along for a ride. This scooter comes in two different colors, including Marine Blue, and Dragon Red.
Despite its small size, the 2005 Piaggio Fly packs a powerful punch, thanks to its 4-stroke single cylinder engine. The engine has a 150cc displacement, with SOHC valve configuration, and a carburetor fuel system type, all of which allows the bike to reach top cruising speeds of close to 60 miles an hour.
But even with that powerful engine, the bike's suspension and steering still permit for a safe and easy ride, once its wheels hit the road. The 2005 Piaggio Fly comes equipped with a telescopic fork front end suspension and 1.3 inches of travel, which combine with the bike's single sided swing arm rear suspension to create a smooth drive, even on tough road surfaces. A single rear shock absorber helps keep this scooter balanced, regardless of the terrain.
The 2005 Piaggio Fly's equally sized tires and wheels also help create a steady ride for drivers of the bike. This scooter's front and rear tires both measure in at 120/70 R12, and when combined with a pair of tubeless, steel 12 inch wheels, this motorcycle remains constantly balanced, even when reaching top cruising speeds on the open road.
Beyond the standard specs, the 2005 Piaggio Fly comes equipped with a number of additional safety measures to help keep novice riders safe on the road. This scooter is equipped with 7.9 inch front disc brakes and 5.5 inch rear drum brakes, which help create smooth stops, regardless of road conditions. Front and rear fenders provide an additional measure of safety for riders.
Finally, for owners looking for a little class to go along with the comfort of riding the 2005 Piaggio Fly, this bike has plenty to keep them happy. The scooter is equipped with a clock, temperature warning light, speedometer, and a fuel level warning light, which alerts the rider if the bike's 1.9 gallon fuel capacity tank is getting low. Exterior covers and guards protect the bike's steel frame from outside elements, while vinyl seating creates a comfortable riding experience for both driver and passenger. Lastly, this bike comes with helmet storage, lockable storage, and under-seat storage, as well.
