The Faggio is a Piaggio-based scooter in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV and its episodes.

Although the Faggio is pronounced "fah-jee-o", many players tend to pronounce it as "fa-gy-o", not doubt referencing the effeminate nature of the scooter in comparison to other bikes (and indeed, most vehicles).

Description

The Faggio's appearance remained virtually unchanged between GTA Vice City to GTA Vice City Stories, being based off a 1970s-1980s Piaggio Vespa, apart from one of its brake lights being broken on the San Andreas model. The Faggio is the slowest motorcycle in each of the five games in which the vehicle appears, but makes up for this with its excellent maneuverability, acceleration, and light weight.

In GTA IV, the Faggio takes on the appearance of a modern scooter, possibly a Baccio DLX 50, and is available with one-tone or two-tone color schemes. It has a new engine sound, no longer has a single transmission number, and its handling has been greatly changed, yet it is still the slowest motorbike in the game. Using the GTA IV Faggio is the easiest way to do long wheelies.

In The Ballad of Gay Tony episode for GTA IV, the GTA IV version of the Faggio is present as well as a more classical version reminiscent of the original Vespa, with similar performance traits and exotic seat covers in purple velvet, or with leopard or zebra skin patterns.

Variants

The Pizza Boy (or Pizzaboy) delivery scooter, featured in GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas and GTA Liberty City Stories, is a modified Faggio with a back-mounted box installed to carry pizzas (or other goods), and painted in the livery of the vehicle's respective owners. Another delivery scooter, the NoodleBoy from GTA Liberty City Stories, has similar handling and speed to the Faggio, but has a drastically different, modernized design.

In GTA Vice City Stories, there is another delivery moped looking like the Faggio called the Ventoso, which has a higher top speed and acceleration than the Faggio.

In GTA San Andreas, the Faggio cannot be modified.

The requested variant of the faggio in Stevie's Car Thefts in Grand Theft Auto IV.

In GTA IV, a Faggio is requested as part of Stevie's Car Thefts, appearing with a uniquely metallic green and black body color. As a new Faggio will respawn at the same spot until the player delivers one to S&M Auto Sales, the player can save one at their safehouse before delivering another.
