The Faggio is a scooter based on the Piaggio range, found 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 the second DLC, The Ballad of Gay Tony.

The Faggio is pronounced "fah-jee-o".

Description

The slowest motorcycle in each of the five games the vehicle appears in, the Faggio's appearance remained virtually unchanged throughout the GTA III era, being based off a Piaggio Vespa, apart from one of its brake lights being broken on the San Andreas model.

In GTA IV, the Faggio took on the appearance of a Baccio DLX 50; 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 all GTA eras. Using the Faggio is the easiest way to do long wheelies. In The Ballad of Gay Tony, the GTA IV version is present as well as a redone version of the Faggio from GTA III to GTA Vice City Stories.

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 different, more contemporary design. In GTA Vice City Stories, there is another delivery moped looking like the Faggio called the Ventoso.

Trivia

  • "Faggio" is Italian for "beech", however the name is presumably a play on the "effeminacy" of the scooter in comparison to other bikes (and indeed, most vehicles).
  • In GTA IV, the two default radio stations in the Faggio are Jazz Nation Radio 108.5 and Fusion FM.
