Looking For Bike That Won’t Topple, Here Is The Gilera Fuoco 500
Here is a bike that will not topple so easily and want that will be great for those of you looking for a starter scooter. Piaggio and Gileras’ 3-wheeled wonders have captured the imagination and hearts of riders around the world with their fully automatic machines that set new benchmarks for stability, grip and safety.
If you haven’t yet ridden the MP3 or the Fuoco, it’s probably hard to understand why this sort of bike would be of any interest. It looks big, bulky and unsettling but these impressions will disappear from your mind once you hit some tight urban corners, over bumpy and damaged tarmac, and in the rain as the two chunky front wheels simply provide twice the traction and stability you get on an ordinary bike. You quickly learn exactly how quickly you can go into a right-angle corner to scrape the centre stand all the way around and come out on full throttle. Then, you do so on every single corner you see.
It is also simply astounding on the brakes too, there’s almost no dive thanks to the twin-parallelogram front end, and the two contact patches let it stop like nothing on two wheels ever could. It’s an absolute joy to ride and dive around corners!
The Fuoco is every bit as practical as the MP3, with huge storage capacity, hydraulic tilt-lock for feet-up stops and parking on any angle, and great economy. Please contact NAZA Premira at 03-55143388 OR call 03-7953 2875 for a test ride and further details.
