For fans who want the unmistakable sound of a four-stroke engine, the engineers from Piaggio have launched the 2012 MY Piaggio Zip 50 Special Edition 4-stroke. It shares its innards with the two-stroke limited edition, except for its engine. It sports an air-cooled, four-stroke, 49cc, single cylinder HI-PER4 lump mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). As the two-stroke version, it has special graphics that appeal to the more sensitive riders, and is a favorite among Piaggio female fans.
The 2012 MY Piaggio Zip 50 Special Edition 2-stroke is a scooter designed especially for the fairer sex among Piaggio fans, with graphics that appeal to the sensitive side. This version sports an ecological, air-cooled, two-stroke, 49cc, single cylinder HI-PER4 lump mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The low seat height, and the plush riding position, make this machine a favorite among younger riders. In addition, the seat height can be adjusted to three positions, meaning it can accommodate a larger variety of riders, no matter their inseam.
