{{Quote|A certain kind of man drives a scooter. Is that you?|[[Southernsanandreassuperautos.com]] description.}}
The Faggio's appearance remained virtually unchanged between [[GTA III Era|GTA Vice City to GTA Vice City Stories]], being based off a 1970s-1980s [[wp:Vespa|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 [[File:Faggio_badges.png|thumb|Badging on the Faggio.]]up for this with its excellent maneuverability, acceleration, and light weight.
 
   
In GTA IV, the Faggio City-XS took on the appearance of a modern scooter, possibly a [[wp:Piaggio Zip 4T|2000-present Piaggio Zip]] or a [http://webstar-auto.com/documents/document_service_2460_200_5_940519054.jpg 2007 Peugeot V Clic] with the headlight and name from a [http://www.cpiscooter.com/galerie/ressources/OliverCity/OliC03.jpg CPI Oliver City]; 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 Faggio is the easiest way to do long wheelies. In [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]], the "Second Generation" is present as well as a more classical version (called '''Faggio Ultra''' in the beta) reminiscent of the original Vespa, but features exotic seat covers in purple velvet, or with leopard or zebra skin patterns.

In [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], the [[Pegassi]] Faggio City-XS took on the appearance of a modern urban scooter, resembling a cross between [[wp:Piaggio Zip 4T|2000-present Piaggio Zip]] and [http://webstar-auto.com/documents/document_service_2460_200_5_940519054.jpg 2007 Peugeot V Clic], while also shares minor styling elements with the [[wp:Kymco|Kymco Agility 50]] compact scooter.
  +
  +
In ''[[The Ballad of Gay Tony]]'', the modern version is present as well as a more classical version (called '''Faggio Ultra''' in the beta) reminiscent of the classic Vespa and looking similar to the [[3D Universe]] rendition, but with circular headlight and features exotic seat covers in purple velvet, or with leopard or zebra skin patterns.
  +
  +
In [[Grand Theft Auto V]], the Faggio now always spawns in the classic variant from TBoGT. The modern version from GTA IV does not return. It is also now manufactured by [[Principe]].

==Performance==
  +
===3D Universe===
  +
Powered by a small 50cc engine, the Faggio is the slowest and the most low-powered motorcycle in each of the four games in which the vehicle appears, but makes up for this with its excellent maneuverability, acceleration, and light weight.
  +
In GTA LCS, however, the Faggio seems to had better performance, with its top speed second only to the [[Freeway]], but the acceleration remains the same.
  +
  +
===HD Universe===
  +
===GTA IV===
  +
[[File:Faggio_badges.png|thumb|Badging on the Faggio.]]
  +
  +
As a modern street scooter, the Faggio now has a more powerful engine coupled to a CVT drivetrain (despite it shift gears), its handling has been greatly changed and improved top speed, thus it is no longer a slow motorbike in the game. The Faggio is the easiest vehicle to use when performing long wheelies, possibly due to its high center of gravity and shorter wheelbase compared to other motorbikes in the game. The Faggio's top speed is notably comparable to classic cars such as the [[Voodoo]] and [[Manana]].
  +
  +
===GTA V===
  +
In GTA V, its performance is even more poorer than previous rendition. Acceleration is average, but extremely lacking when compared with the modern variant from GTA IV. As expected from its weak engine, top speed is mediocre, and the vehicle lacks sufficient torque and acceleration to even climb moderately steep inclines. Handling is precise, but this could be a problem at high speeds where stability is favored over sharp handling. The vehicle's open-air design leaves the player vulnerable to gunfire, and the fact that the player can easily be knocked off of this scooter makes it a very poor choice for a getaway vehicle. Nevertheless, the Faggio is still a good choice for cruising around the city streets.

"A certain kind of man drives a scooter. Is that you?"
Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.

The Pegassi and Principe Faggio (pronounced Fah-Jee-O) is a motor scooter, meant to parody the Vespa and Piaggio scooter lineup. It has appeared 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, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

DesignEdit

GTA Vice City - GTA Vice City StoriesEdit

The Faggio's appearance remained virtually unchanged between GTA Vice City to GTA Vice City Stories, being based off a Piaggio Vespa 50 Special, apart from one of its brake lights being broken on the San Andreas model.

GTA IV - GTA VEdit

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Pegassi Faggio City-XS took on the appearance of a modern urban scooter, resembling a cross between 2000-present Piaggio Zip and 2007 Peugeot V Clic, while also shares minor styling elements with the Kymco Agility 50 compact scooter.

In The Ballad of Gay Tony, the modern version is present as well as a more classical version (called Faggio Ultra in the beta) reminiscent of the classic Vespa and looking similar to the 3D Universe rendition, but with circular headlight and features exotic seat covers in purple velvet, or with leopard or zebra skin patterns.

In Grand Theft Auto V, the Faggio now always spawns in the classic variant from TBoGT. The modern version from GTA IV does not return. It is also now manufactured by Principe.


PerformanceEdit

3D UniverseEdit

Powered by a small 50cc engine, the Faggio is the slowest and the most low-powered motorcycle in each of the four games in which the vehicle appears, but makes up for this with its excellent maneuverability, acceleration, and light weight. In GTA LCS, however, the Faggio seems to had better performance, with its top speed second only to the Freeway, but the acceleration remains the same.

HD UniverseEdit

GTA IVEdit

As a modern street scooter, the Faggio now has a more powerful engine coupled to a CVT drivetrain (despite it shift gears), its handling has been greatly changed and improved top speed, thus it is no longer a slow motorbike in the game. The Faggio is the easiest vehicle to use when performing long wheelies, possibly due to its high center of gravity and shorter wheelbase compared to other motorbikes in the game. The Faggio's top speed is notably comparable to classic cars such as the Voodoo and Manana.

GTA VEdit

In GTA V, its performance is even more poorer than previous rendition. Acceleration is average, but extremely lacking when compared with the modern variant from GTA IV. As expected from its weak engine, top speed is mediocre, and the vehicle lacks sufficient torque and acceleration to even climb moderately steep inclines. Handling is precise, but this could be a problem at high speeds where stability is favored over sharp handling. The vehicle's open-air design leaves the player vulnerable to gunfire, and the fact that the player can easily be knocked off of this scooter makes it a very poor choice for a getaway vehicle. Nevertheless, the Faggio is still a good choice for cruising around the city streets.

Variants Edit

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 a motorized bicycle looking like the Faggio called the Ventoso; which has a higher top speed and acceleration than the Faggio.

Faggio-GTA4-Stevie-front

The Faggio Stevie requests.

In GTA IV, a Faggio is requested in Stevie's Car Thefts, appearing in a unique light green paintjob. As a new Faggio will spawn in the same spot until the player delivers it, the player can keep one and deliver the other to Stevie.

  • In GTA IV, although its engine shifts, it is clear that it has a CVT. Motorcycle CVT transmissions are single-speed so gear shifting is likely a developer's error.
  • GTA V's rendition of the Faggio's description on southernsanandreassuperautos.com is a reference to the real Vespa's common association with hipster culture.
  • This scooter can be used to easily gain the 'Wheelie Rider' achievement. Simply accelerate and lean back in moderation to make sure the back does not scrape on the ground.
  • In GTA V, the Faggio is often found driven by hipsters.
  • Before Update 1.06, the Faggio was listed on Southernsanandreassuperautos.com as the Pegassi Faggio. However, the manufacturer was then changed to Principe. This may be done because Lamborghini or Ducati in real life does not create scooters. Although, when riding the Faggio with the 1.06 update, it still is named the Pegassi Faggio, so it may be a glitch or just an oversight to change the name.
  • The Faggio's poor performance in GTA V is likely an accurate representation to its real-life counterpart. The classic Vespa are widely known for its heavy weight, resulting in sluggish acceleration and it takes a long time to reach high speeds, however it makes up with better handling and durability.
  • In GTA Online, it can be selected in a race as an "Utility vehicle", most likely due to its poor performance, being comparable to a Caddy or even a Fieldmaster.
