“Ideal City Bikes”

published 13/07/2000

Great design, good speed, easy to ride

bit small, very light weight

I have had a Piggio Zip 50 for 18 months. As a first bike its great (particularly as you don't need a CBT or any motorbike specific licence to ride one) or just to get around town it is ideal. It is very nimble and light weight and easy to ride and the acceleration is excellent too for a bike of...

Good

Simple and at its best quite reliable

Extremely light and slow

I have owned two of these bikes and therefore I think I can give a very good and honest review of this bike. So my first on road bike was a brand spanking new piaggio zip 50cc, I couldnt have been more excited. The bike had everything I thought I needed, simple clocks, glove compartment, average...

i received this soped as a gift to commute to college and back. i didnt think much of the moped just as a form of transport, but i discoverd much more to the piaggio zip 50. as i gained more understanding of mopeds, i realised the zip 50 is one the best! it contains style, comfort, speed, and looks in one. weighing just 79kg, makes the zip 50 quick of the mark. i have recorded my zip 50 to do over 100miles to the gallon saving me alot of cash! overall, i can only think of one bad thing about the moped, that being it costs approx £1100 new, but well worth the money!

“Piaggio Zip 50”

published 04/03/2006

Small, "nippy", good looking

occasional faults that are easy to repair

I've had my Zip 50 for a little over 2 years now, i bought it origionally for getting to school without having to wait for the bus and i've never regretted it. The bike is very very reliable, it starts in all weather and usually after one press on the starter. It's easy to ride for a beginner and...

“Piaggio Zip”

Acceleration, reliable, Looks

Needs more aftersale products

A great moped for the first time biker, reliable and Zippy, good acceleration and quick. And most of all easy to get parts after sale, i've heard. No need to blend the oil with the petrol, it does it self. No hassels just twist and go. A great bike to commute. And is a very eco friendly way to go...

The Piaggio Zip 50 (4-stroke) is not a motor-scooter I would recommend buying and would never buy one myself again the small 4-stroke engine it was powered by was not at all powerful. Two weeks after I bought this vehicle there was problems in the variator area the starter motor disc was...

Hi i have a piaggio Zip Cat 50. and live in london. I enjoy this bike from time to time but as an 18 year old it not exactly the best bike to have as its slow. i have derstricted it and fitted a LeoVince Hand Made TT pipe. The bike only hits 40mph thats only because i haven't destrricted the pipe. there are some problems with the lighting and speed dial as then go off sometimes but, All in all having a piaggio zip 50 can be alot of work if you want to get it going faster. but its a nice bike when it wants to be.
