Piaggio Fly 125ie 3v – Review of 2013 model

Having had the bike for 4 months, I have re-reviewed it, giving a number of pros and cons for this excellent little scooter.

Only another 500 or so before it’s run-in properly, lol. Just take it easy for those first miles to keep the engine good

O8 ride says:

Good idea Leon. But I wasn’t happy with the low quality and concerned that the disc may fall out while riding so I bought and fit a new tax disc holder. Now I don’t need to worry.

O8 ride says:

Brill, moving on up. New or second-hand?

i really want to buy one.  do you know if there’s any changes in the 2015 model, compared to the 2013?  im a little concerned with the seat, i got a Derbi atlantis and it  makes my bottom a little sore  and numb after a while. just like you describe with the fly 125

RyAn25XD says:

just got my new bike, keep an eye out for a white yamaha wr125x 😉

RyAn25XD says:

but tbh im not the person to go ‘right 100 miles, lets rag it from here’ ahaha, i take it steady anyway so should be good

I get about 100mpg on my 2013 Fly 125 3v, Piaggio quote 144mpg? I can get 65mph, under good conditions 68-70mph, I’m 15st. 1st 1000km service was £80 after haggling. Major service intervals are every 10,000km. Fits my open face helmet+jacket but will not fit my full face helmet 🙁 It’s a pain having to unlock the steering first to straighten the bars, then remove the key to open the seat, otherwise the seat will not self stay up. Overall the Fly 125 3v is an excellent scooter.

O8 ride says:

Hmmm. You may want to take some further advice on that. I’m no expert, but that seems to be very low mileage to claim it is run in well

RyAn25XD says:

indeed, new, done 36 miles so far!

O8 ride says:

The storage not taking my full face helmet is a pain, I agree, but I don’t like the full-face anyway. Just feel much too heavy and I have limited peripheral vision with it so I use the open face as much as possible. Makes me feel more Mediterranean too.

O8 ride says:

thumbs up.

Leon Bradley says:

Also when i wash my scooter i tie a small bag around tax disc which keeps it dry

RyAn25XD says:

just put a vid up of the new machine 🙂

Ryokanfan says:

Fantastic review, really comprehensive and a real help for someone looking to find out the rider experience of the Fly.

bornagainbiker says:

I cut off 2-3mm from the centre stand rubber stop and stopped most of the scraping. Do not cut off too much as when up, you need to miss the rear brake fluid pipe.

TuMadre says:

1:28 you’re a fucking moron! XD

Leon Bradley says:

Just laminate yr tax disc problem solved

RyAn25XD says:

dealer said below 45 for first 100 miles then it should be fine
