Faggio is a scooter/motorcycle, engineered and manufactured by a non-existing in the real world Italian company Principe, responsible for manufacturing motorcycles in the Grand Theft Auto series, which parodies real-existing Italian brands, such as Ducati and Piaggio.
Principe Faggio made it's appearance in almost each part of the Grand Theft Auto series, starting with Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, except for GTA: Chinatown Wars. This scooter suffered an interesting, unusual for other motorbikes, history of metamorphosis. Since GTA: Vice City Faggio came to the each new part of the series completely unchanged, except for the painting. In the fourth part of the GTA series scooter got a new, "modern" design, however in GTA 5 it's design style was reverted to original, classic style of pre-GTA 4 games.
It would be foolish to expect from the Principe Faggio scooter any outstanding characteristics, capable of competing with other motorbikes. Faggio is the slowest motorized vehicle in the game, hands down, and it's acceleration and brakes are quiet mediocre for it's speed - one could expect better results. The power of it's engine is often not enough to climb moderately steep inclines. Obviously, it is weird to hope for it's manoeuvrability, as if there is any, it is unnoticeable thanks to it' speed. You can buy Principe Faggio from the www.southernsanandreassuperautos.com website for $5000. But what for?
The prototype of the Principe Faggio scooter in the real world is Piaggio Vespa 50.
