Piaggio Zip 50

Economy scooter - European quality for just a few dollars a day.


The Piaggio Zip 2 stroke scooter was the most eagerly anticipated delivery for us on its release in 2009, and it has since easily outperformed our expectation: Here at Ace we love the Zip as the quality and pricing of the little “Zipster” means it is placed to sell whilst also ensuring that the scooter smile stays on the faces of our customers well after they take their new scooter home.

So why is it so special? Well, because the motor that powers the Zip 50 2T is the very same motor that powers the Vespa Primavera 50. That’s right, the Vespa HiPer engine – smooth, easy to start and utterly dependable – but available in a package half the price of the Vespa!!

So if you are looking for a 50cc scooter, then this one should be on your shortlist. There is a very good reason why after having done the rounds checking the competition, customers keep coming back and buying Zips: You just can’t go wrong.

It’s the reason why we’ve already sold so many of these to different motorcycle instructors/schools. It’s what professionals are looking for – reliability and value – and the Zip 50 delivers these in spades. In our opinion this is simply and easily the best quality 50cc scooter in the budget end of the market. And especially competitive priced, we think you’ll agree.
