Power, smoothness, fullness... words cannot describe the sensation of riding the Gilera Fuoco. Imagine everyone's eyes on you as you move with incredible agility, speed and stability on your Fuoco. Passing unobserved is impossible with such sensational technology and design. The new dual front wheel is further emphasised by the aggressive look of the front end. The maximum in grit thanks to the new Master 500 engine which develops a maximum power of 40 HP at 7,250 rpm and top speed of about 145 kph: the "heart" of a true maxi, in full compliance with the strict Euro 3 regulation.

Innovative, personal and in a league of its own: its look is the first introduction to the Gilera Fuoco, with strong lines without compromise that express strength and character. Essential and original, the front shield is characterised by strongly distinctive traits, enhanced by the presence of the dual 12 inch wheels and the extended steel tubular guard. The scarce use of plastics leaves all the beauty of the original front suspension technology on display, while the five element headlight assembly, with the two larger ones equipped with protective grilles derived from the off road world, perfectly matches the tapered black top fairing and the motorcycle style handlebar. The taut lines also characterise the tail fairing where the particular tubular structure recalls the front design, acting as luggage rack as well as a solid grab handle for the passenger. Fuoco 500 i.e. LT also has a license plate bracket with a completely new shape. It is available in two colour schemes, both matt and extremely sporty: Nero Demon and Grigio Opaco. There is a vast catalogue of original accessories made for the new three wheeled Gilera.
The essence of sportiness
"The exceptional characteristics of safety, road holding and fun wrapped up in the patented innovative front suspension are expressed to the maximum in the Gilera Fuoco 500 i.e. LT. The sophisticated articulated parallelogram system that has a roll mechanism comprised of four cast aluminium arms, articulated on as many solid hinges at the central headstock and two lateral headstocks connected to the suspension arms with pins and ball bearings, allows the Gilera Fuoco 500 i.e. LT to be driven like a normal two wheeled vehicle, but with all the solidity and safety that only the dual front wheel can guarantee.
Acting on the front suspension electro-hydraulic locking system activation control, Fuoco 500 is capable of supporting itself even without lowering the centre stand. This allows for easy parking in any position, also eliminating the need to put your feet on the ground while waiting at a stop light. Two wheels up front to dominate the road in any condition, to provide the fun and enjoyment of motorcycle leans in absolute road holding safety that no other traditional scooter can provide. Safety which is increased by a braking system with three 240 mm discs. The Fuoco 500 i.e. LT version has an integrated braking system which is operated from the foot lever and, thanks in part to the front wheel track being increased to 465 mm, allows the Fuoco 500 i.e. LT to be ridden with a simple ""B"" category passenger car license."
Keeping pace with the best bikes on curvy roads, enjoying a pleasant ride even with the asphalt conditions are not the best and getting a launching head start from a standing start when riding in the city: these are luxuries that only the Gilera Fuoco 500 i.e. can provide. The Master 500 engine that equips the Fuoco 500 i.e. LT is a true and proper excitement generator: it is a 492 cc double ignition single cylinder with 4 valve distribution, electronic fuel injection and liquid cooling system. It develops a maximum power of 40 HP at 7,250 rpm and its maximum torque is more than 46.5 Nm at 5,250 rpm. The introduction of a twin spark plug system optimises combustion in the cylinder, reducing both noise and exhaust emissions. The result is an elastic and high performance engine, with high torque at medium and low revs which allows the Fuoco 500 to reach a maximum speed of about 150 kph in full compliance with prevailing pollution regulations, thanks to its “closed loop” injection system equipped with an oxygen sensor at the exhaust and a -way catalytic converter.
