Fuoco 500 ie

The two-ring brand now runs on three wheels. With show-stopping looks and top performance, the Fuoco 500 ie is the Gilera version of the three-wheeler for people who want to stand out. ‘Safe fun’ is no longer a contradiction in terms. Riding has never been this easy, enjoyable and secure.

Passion, adventure and innovation have always been the Gilera watchwords, on asphalt racetracks and desert sand dunes alike. The Gilera Fuoco 500 ie expresses these concepts to perfection. Two front wheels and a revolutionary parallelogram front suspension together with the double ignition Master 500 ie engine give the Gilera Fuoco very racy performance to provide fast-riding fun in all safety.

The Gilera Fuoco’s innovative looks get its rider noticed. The front end of the Gilera Fuoco 500 ie is attention grabbing: its decisive, uncompromising shape expresses strength and character and hints at the incredible performance of the 492 cc single cylinder engine.
