Just got the official word from Piaggio USA.
It will be here in May, and will have the new Fuel injected, 3 valve engine.
Lower seat height at 29.9 inches, 6k service intervals, about 130 MPG!!!!

priced at....... $2,899, same as the outgoing Fly 150.

This is going to be a HELL WHOLE lot of bike for the money!!

Will be available in Volcano Black and Pearl White.

Fuel tank is moved to the front of the floor board, and under seat storage is drastically improved!

Euro model has rear disk brakes; there is no mention of them on the email, but hopefully they will make it also to the States.

Really looking forward to seeing this new FLY 150
If this New Fly has the Dual Disc Brakes Plus the New Piaggio 3 valve engine - this could be the perfect Scooter. I am wondering if the Performance Upgrades for the Vespa LX150 will fit this engine also?
With the 12" wheels and longer wheelbase, with Variator Upgrades, roller upgrades, a Primo Pipe and perhaps a racing Clutch this may be a real sweet deal - for the 1700 dollars saved over a Vespa LX150 you could put in the Mallossi 190 kit and still save a ton of money.

Can't wait to see this in the showroom.

Fingers crossed that this means the 3V LXs are also coming.

I've never understood why I don't see more Flys on the road.

This is certainly going to be a huge value prop. And it looks really good IMO.

At the 1:27 mark, you can see a rear disc brake.

That is what we are hoping for!!

Eric: It will come on the LX too, most likely for the 2014 model year.

Hopefully they've made it easier to put on the center stand, and fixed the other glaring problems I had on my 2007 model: grips that make your hands black, the extremely limited foot placement options, cheap toy mirrors, abysmal turning radius, weird seat hump, cheap-feeling hand controls, speedo graphics that peel off, plastic that you can scratch with your fingernail, roller rattle at idle, and undersized pilot jet.

My 2004 ET4 150 is 10x better than my 2007 Fly 150 was. I honestly hated almost everything about the Fly except the engine itself.

That's good to know, with buyers remorse I regret everything I buy even though I Love my Vespa.
I just bought a bunch of Vespa jacket patches that wouldn't fly on the Fly, lol.

curious question
Has anyone ever compared the Vespa LX150 to the Piaggio Fly- either test riding them both or having owned both?
I am curious how they compare in terms of performance and ride.
seems like they should be very close as they use the same engine.

Standard question from bvbob: Any news on new color choices for the bv350? I was Sooooo close to buying a 2012 Suzuki Burgman 400 last week it wasn't funny. My wife said I'm more of a "BV kinda guy" so I decided to hold off. The Suzuki deal was very hard to pass up. Hope I made the right decision.....

Probably because the Buddy 125/150/170i is a better bike. The 3V engine does intrigue me a bit.

Got to wonder...
With all these upgrades and keeping the price constant, they will [almost surely] need to cut costs on other things. And [without huge discounts] who will want to by the rest of the current models knowing what is coming?

Alex, are you sure about that gas mileage for the 150? That is huge!

meh... they're pretty equal, all things considered.

now, with a 3V motor and a rear disc... there's really no competition.

disclaimer: i've ridden AND worked on both... A LOT...

price point and market share.
the people 150 was cheaper at the time and dealers weren't really pushing the piaggio product. kind of like the typhoon at the time. it was the most expensive bike the class and nobody had ever heard of it. both kick ass bikes, though.

all in all, i view the the fly as one of the best modern bikes piaggio has made-- right behind the ET4, of course.

best,

you also considered your elite 250 as a cannonball contender at on time...
just sayin'....

(i keed, i keed)

the longer wheelbase and bigger 12" tires kind of offset the lightweight in the roadhandling departement, so i don't see why it wouldn't be at least a gnat in the ear of the competition.

add a 190, some long gears, a tall rear tire and put everybody on notice.
(everybody except jess, patrick, rich and lee that is)

you, sir, have a problem.
i genuinely suggest that you seek help.

should that be an issue, please direct yourself to eastwood's website wherein you will find all manner of fabrication tools to aid you in said endeavor.

i will not be responsible for the loss of life, liberty or privileges from your spouse if decide to undertake such a task.

funny enough, my buddy just asked me to put a 250 motor into his 150 frame... i thought about it for a fleeting moment.

Glad to see that they moved the gas tank - nice to have that lower to the ground and not have to worry about spilling gas all over the storage area. The price point is excellent as well - hope to see more on the street.

I had a hard time believing it myself, but prior release from Piaggio in Europe shows about 130 mpg city for that bike. That engine is THAT good!!

It's all relative.

I think the Buddy is at the end of its course; if it was not for its cool colors on the 125 it would probably be dead.
Technology wise, the Fly is lightyears ahead of the Buddy.
Don't get me wrong, I like the Buddy for what it is, but the Fly rides sooooo much better than the Buddy, because of its longer wheel base, bigger wheels that are alloy and not steel ( we have seen so many clients with bent rims on the Buddy), and better suspension.
The Buddy 125/ 150 was faster than the Fly, but with this new 3V engine, that will change.

The reason why we don't see more Flys on the road is because people like the retro style better of Vespa or the Buddy.
This new Fly has a more fluid design that looks modern yet has touches of retro in it. It will attract more people and with its new traits, I think it will do much better.
You get so much more bike than the Buddy for only $100 more!!!
And the seat height has been lowered to about the same height as the Buddy seat.

I am Sold on the Fly
I have been contemplating a new scooter for several years. Saving, scrimping, thinking and dreaming of the time when I will get my new scooter.

I've considered the Stella and the Buddy and the Vespa LX but there is something about each of them that is a compromise.

This new Piaggio Fly seems to have all of the things I want in a scooter PLUS this new engine. The New engine is not a small thing as initial reports seem to indicate that there are several advances in technology incorporated in the new design.

This being the case I am sold on this new scooter. All I need now is to get a test drive when they reach the dealers showroom.

IF it is all I expect it to be then I will drive one home - and take the long way home even !!

I'd like to know if the old Fly accessories (mainly windscreens) will fit the new model. It looks like they've used the same headset in the photos.

Also, the enlarged pet carrier is the obvious result of relocating the gas tank; but it would have also required relocating the battery. I hope they took this opportunity to fit a larger unit; the old YB9-B is really inadequate.

PS: Is it clear that the rear rack in the photos is standard equipment?

Look closer, the headset is different on the new Fly versus the old one.

I highly suspect that the Fly will move to a YB12 like the rest of the 150cc class in the Piaggio/ Vespa family.
As for the rear rack, it is like the BV; they replaced the grab bars by a rack. just add the case to it.

Thanx Alex

You're right; the headset is slightly different. However, it may be close enough that an old windscreen will fit.

With the relocation of the battery, they may have also been able to eliminate the step in the seat (can't really tell from the pix); that's been a major complaint with the current Fly.

I agree that a FI, 12" tires, dual disc brakes, 150 is a total buddy-killer.

I love my Buddy 150, if they were right around the same price, the Fly would win for overall practical value.

The New Piaggio Fly 125 3-valve: UK Review

2013 Piaggio Fly 125
MDN October 29, 2012

Piaggio unveiled its new 2013 Fly 125cc. Designed for daily urban use, the Fly now has a new engine and a new framework, the trim and ergonomics have also been redesigned.
A more powerful and less greedy engine

The new model adopts a 3-valve 125 cc engine. Developed to provide a compromise between power and fuel consumption, the 4 stroke engine is certified Euro 3 emission standards.
Thanks to the work given to the reduction of friction, the scooter should enable reduced fuel consumption by 30% compared to the previous model and a power increase of 7% and torque by 10%. The manufacturer announced an average consumption of 0.6 gal/60 mph for a power of 11.9 hp.
Featuring a belt drive transmission, it should also allow easy maintenance with planned servicing every 6250 miles and 12 500 miles belt change.
Revised aesthetics and comfort

Featuring small dimensions specific to urban models, the Italian scooter does not forget to offer more storage space.
Aesthetically, the front is still characterized by the Piaggio ”tie” which is adorned with a black color for the occasion. The handlebar features a triangular light, surrounded by a chrome line that extends to the instrumentalisation in glossy black contours.
The low seat, with a height of 760 mm, offers a pleasant driving position for all drivers. We also note the attention to the finish, such as the rear chrome handles.
The fuel tank is installed under the floor, a solution to maintain maximum trunk space available under the seat which can now accommodate two jet helmets with visor. The deck also offers storage space with glove box.
The scooter has two stands: a center stand for greater stability when stopped and a side stand with engine cut sensor for safety.
A chassis cut for the city

The framework of the Piaggio Fly 125cc was completely changed. Made of steel reinforced tubes, it is designed around a simple and rigid open cradle structure.
Shock absorbing is now provided by a 32 mm hydraulic telescopic fork and a monoshock using the engine as a basis for swingarm. 12” wheels and tubeless tires of 120/70 ensure a maneuverability made for the city.

My Fly 150 was great for three years UNTIL I removed the transmission cover to service the Bendix starter. It is impossible to put cover back on - so I have put it in storage until May when I can drop engine etc to solve problem
If they have not solved this position problem with transmission cover and the frame - I would never buy another Fly 150 - you can't do your own service in the most critical area under the cover....forewarned

ALEX i think your right about the looks. I got a LT (not the same as a fly but similar enough in looks) and it wasn't appealing. I was on the hunt for a used LX and i got that while i was waiting. Still none so i ordered my LX from CA. The LT has a new home with a fellow MV'ER over here and is loved. I'd do one for a second scooter.

fly 150 transmission cover will not go back on - think of putting toothpaste back in tube - it probably can be done - just take hours of work and some ingenuity - i am not the only one here to have trouble with fly150 transmission cover

Thanks Alex, for all the updates. Any pictures of what the chrome trim accessory for the rear looks like?
Unfortunately no, but I will look for one.

The Typhoon also has metal grab bars and npt plastic like the outgoing Fly.

Judy, we see a LT 50 once in a while coming in for service, and extremely rare are the LT150. People looooove these!!!!
