The innovative i-get four-stroke powerplant with 3-valve timing makes its début on the Piaggio Zip: agility and freedom of movement combined with exceptional fuel consumption and an ultra modern design amke this a winner
The Piaggio Zip is loved by young and female riders plus many adults all over Europe. The third generation of the Zip is an entirely new product that retains only a few things from the original launched in 1992, namely a winning formula and name that describes a small and agile vehicle that is still loaded with personality, made with attention to every detail and perfect for urban use.
The modernity of the Zip design, characterised by complex surfaces that intersect to create simple and essential lines, maintains a strong Piaggio “family feeling”. The front end is futuristic with its two “cuts” where the parking lights and turn indicators are nestled, the upper grille and the handlebar cover that are strongly characterised by the transparent “drop” that houses the powerful high beam front light and the dashboard, fitted with instruments and circular warning lights. The taillight assembly is also inserted in the upper profile of the side fairings.
Large and comfortable for both rider and passenger, the Zip saddle conceals a spacious compartment for a full-face helmet and it can be easily adjusted to three different heights with an innovative “flexible” ergonomics solution which is the only one of its kind in today's scooter segment. The handlebar controls are an integral part of the comfort and riding pleasure, accessible and intuitive, as well as more functional thanks to the automatic turn indicator return. On the leg shield back plate, there is a practical, locking glove compartment where you can easily and securely store documents and day-to-day items. Zip is also equipped with a highly practical bag hook. The passenger grab belt has a new look with red stitching, the same colour that is also used on the Zip badge.
The frame, designed for the performance and stress of city use, is single tube with elements in high resistance pressed steel. The suspension system relies on a telescopic fork with 30 mm diameter stanchions. At the rear, the engine operates as swingarm, with a dual action shock absorber and coil springs.
Braking is powerful and very modulable, ensured by a large, 175 mm front disc brake with hydraulic control and by a 110 mm rear drum.
The engine in the Zip 50 4S Injection is an ultra modern four-stroke air cooled unit with electronic injection, fully compliant with the Euro 4 standard. It is the perfect engine for anyone's first vehicle, young people who will surely appreciate its quickness combined with significant features of low operating costs, thanks to extremely low consumption. In terms of environmentally friendliness in the city, the usual stomping grounds for Zip, the new engine keeps noise to a minimum thanks to the development of new gearbox settings that allow the single cylinder to maintain quick performance while still being “docile”, in other words, at a lower average rpm compared to the engines in previous generations.
