Injection electronic or whatever it actually translates to.
It means fuel injected.

A directive to perform a certain passage with energy, fire, and passion. fire; con fuoco means with fire; instruction to play in a fiery manner.

I guess it's like Schwinn back in the 1980s; they had a model called 'caliente'. Hot.

Europe has the standard MP3 just like the rest of the world.

The Gilera Fuoco (no longer in production) was the same bike of the last gen MP3, but with a Mad Max like bodykit.

Think of the Gilera as an orphan brand of a large car manufacturer with the fenders bent a little differently, such as Fiat which owns Lancia. Lancia is down to 1 model (a recycled Fiat 500) and only sells in Italy.

Same thing with the Gilera. I think the Runner (a 50cc generic scoot) is the only Gilera model left.

Does not seem to be many of us left. There we three in my general area. I'm the last Fucco rider.
