“little pocket rocket”

Small but good acceleration not to good going up hills as struggles abit, flimsy & cornering can catch you out on them tiny wheels. Kick start mechanism is poorly made & engines if thrashed will break easy. Fun but fragile & overpriced as most italian scooters… Read Full Review

“Do not buy this bike”

Written on: 17/06/2013

Bought one a year ago as it appeared ok and was cheap. Stupidly I didn't test ride it. The suspension is terrible, words cannot convey just how bad it is. It started fine at first but just got worse and worse. Went back to the dealer who said that they could find nothing wrong. With the onset of cold weather the starting became even worse. Missed my train to work many times as it just took so long to get started in cold weather. It's also very slow off the line and can only just out accelerate… Read Full Review

You just have to read before buy. It is nice bike for begining. In cold time do not tuch accelerator when you start engine - it is carburator. Suspension is good inough for very light bike 106 kg. I ride it every day. I would like proper bike as well, something like burgman 650 or T-max 530. Compare it. 220 kg good start perfomance suspension and *goog price* 8500

You may have bought a one off as I have had mine for 5 years and still starts first time every-time.

Regular service and TLC will see you through.On bad experience does not make a bad scooter/moped.

Written on: 05/09/2010 by lavacat (2 reviews written)

I own a 'Piaggio fly 150' , it light ,very easy to ride . The main strengths are it has long service intervals every 6,000 kms ,and run in serive 1,000 kms ,with a proper oil filter , what I really like about Piaggio is all italian , it has a vespa lx 150 engine , there no at all that I do not like the 'Piaggio Fly 150 2010' .
Compared to the asian scooter that required high maintence cost and low service intervals , there is no comparison. What attracted for me to purchase the 'Piaggio fly… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/02/2010

I had needed to get rid of my old car, it was getting on a bit and was rarely used. A new car wasn't worth it and we struggled with parking everywhere. A scooter seemed like the ideal solution. I have done a fair bit of research and the Piaggio Fly 125 has always been rated highly. The price was excellent for what you get. Engine wise its been reliable, a bit more difficult to start in the cold but nothing that a little throttle couldn't sort out. The performance is good. Acceleration is brisk… Read Full Review

I wrote the above review a while ago and have owned the Piaggio Fly for about a year, I haven't got around to taking my test as I can't afford to right now. I was hoping to take my test on this without additional instruction but the engine doesn't qualify it for the full test, If you were to do the test on this bike you will be limited to a 125 CC bike (automatic) which really annoyed me. The speed now remains fairly constant at about 60 mph, sometimes going to 70 indicated (roughly 60mph top speed). Its good for all round use and keeps up with traffic easily, although I do notice more powerful bikes having more opportunities to overtake on the bigger roads. My only other issue is a bump in the seat that makes it uncomfortable no long journeys (over an hour and a half). Other than that it's been very reliable. Still wish I had gone with a liquid cooled bike though, mainly to be able to take the UK test on it.

“I am not an experienced scooter rider, so I was...”

Written on: 28/10/2009

I am not an experienced scooter rider, so I was looking for a bike that was reliable, safe, sturdy, easy to ride and easy on the eye, as well as cost-effective and speedy. Not asking too much then!

The Piaggio Fly 125 satisfies all my requirements admirably. I did my CBT on a Vespa, and this Fly is a much more solid ride. The bike is a little bit heavier than a Vespa, which adds to stability when riding, it has larger wheels than the Vespa, and a slightly larger top box for storing all my… Read Full Review

very comfortable, handles road well, is quite fast, gets you away from cars at lights & keeps you out of trouble. This is the best scooter ive ridden so far & ive rode a few in my time. If you like scooters as i do then purchase a piaggio fly 125cc,I dont think you will be dissapointed.. only one downfall, cold start in morning or when left for a few hours,,just twist the throttle three times & then turn her over,,she should start,i got the hang of it within two days,,apart from that little… Read Full Review

I am really really pleased with this bike and definately feel that it was good value for money and way better than the other 125cc out there, its safe, reliable and economical. I would buy piaggio again! I have had my bike for nearly a year and it has never let me down! I can go for weeks at a time without riding it and it still starts first time and although a little cold is running fine in a couple of minutes. I've taken it on some long runs and reached over 70mph in good conditions which is… Read Full Review

Hi
<br/>I purchase my fly 125cc in October 07. And I have so say that it is a great scooter, it starts first time every time. The only trouble I have had with it is the throttle cable snapped. But covered under warranty.

“You get a lot of scooter for your money with the fly....”

Written on: 19/12/2007

You get a lot of scooter for your money with the fly. Comes with the tried and tested leader 125cc which has been around for ages so you know it will go the distance. Somehow the 125cc in the Fly feels stronger than in my "previous" Vespa LX 125. It also handles much better, probably due to the larger wheels and rubber. A heap of fun to ride and very predictable. This is a generous size scoot that will fit most people (short, tall, big and small) It looks sharp and smart and more expensive than… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/12/2007 by daroma (1 review written)

After returning to 2 wheels after many many years I'm very happy with my choice. For urban use and occasional long trips or freeways this is a great little scooter. The full height windscreen has made an incredible difference to riding comfort, with minimal impact on top speed (I don't push it anyway). I find travelling on 100kph freeways not a problem - off peak there is no pressure while in the 'slow' lane, and during peak hours I pass everyone else anyway! I like the fact that the panels are… Read Full Review
