2012 Piaggio Zip 50 Special Series
Zip is one of the great successes from
Piaggio. An authentic reference point in the compact
scooter segment, Zip is an extraordinarily well known
and widespread product all over Europe and the world,
both among young people and adults.
The brilliance of the two or four stroke
engines enhances the quickness and agility which have
made it a success. Zip is a true “city creature”,
extremely effective at moving through urban traffic
and historical city centres. Fun and easy, a young
and modern line, built for solidity and reliability:
these are the secrets of a timeless success.
The modern nature of the Zip design, characterised
by simple and essential lines and balance of volumes,
maintains a marked Piaggio "family feeling".
The front end is immediately recognisable thanks
to two “cuts” in which the daylight running
lights and the turn indicators are inserted, the upper
grille and the handlebar cover strongly characterised
by the transparent “teardrop” which holds
the powerful headlamp and the instrument panel, equipped
with circular instruments and warning lights. Even
the rear light assemblies are inserted into the upper
profile of the sides.
Large and comfortable for both rider and passenger,
the Zip's saddle hides a spacious compartment for
a flip up helmet and can be easily positioned at three
different heights, with an innovative “flexible”
ergonomic solution The handlebar controls, accessible
and intuitive, are an integral part of the comfort
and riding pleasure, as well as being functional thanks
in part to the turn signal indicator automatic return
feature. On the shield back, a practical locking glove
compartment allows the rider to easily and safely
store everyday documents and objects. Zip is also
equipped with an extremely practical bag hook.
A Zip… for women
From the time the Zip was born, it has been particularly
appreciated by female riders. Its lightness, the reduced
seat height, the incomparable ease of handling have
always made it the darling of the pink riders, especially
the younger ones.
The new Zip Special Series is intended as a homage
to the female world, with an innovative style to the
taste of teenagers. The Zip Special Series graphics,
with the coloured and feminine touch, enhance the
concept of a modern and stylish scooter. The dedicated
saddle, with impressed logo, adds a certain exclusivity
and refinement to a model which will certainly be
appreciated by young girls of all ages.
