With its premium product, the Vespa, in place, Piaggio may now be planning to venture into the budget segment of two-wheelers as the Italian manufacturer has imported the Fly 125 automatic scooters into India for R&D testing and evaluation purposes. But budget product from Piaggio does not mean something basic. The scooter is quite an eye candy and comes loaded with premium features.
The Fly 125 is shod with 12-inch alloy wheels, a disc brake at the front, an analogue instrument cluster with a digital watch and an engine kill switch to name a few features. The Fly receives a 125cc four stroke motor that puts out 12 bhp of power and 10.7 Nm of torque.
If the Piaggio Fly does make it to India, it would compete against the Honda Activa 125 and the Suzuki Access 125. Earlier in January, Piaggio also imported its three-wheeled Piaggio MP3 in India for R&D purposes.
