The Piaggio Ciao (ciao means "hi" or "bye" in Italian) is a family of moped / bicycle produced by Piaggio Company from 1967 through 2006. Its the most iconic of Piaggio mopeds ever produced together with Vespas.

It mounts a 49 cc engine that can make it run up to about 40 km/h. It is very convenient as with a full tank (2£) it can cover nearly 130 km. It can also be converted into a bicycle by pressing a small button on its back. This function is vital when you run out of fuel and need to reach the closest petrol station...

 It has a rigid rear suspension, and a leading-link front suspension. Some models include a sprung seat-post. The engine and drive-train are cleanly enclosed, similar to Piaggio's scooters. The Ciao uses a belt drive, unlike most other mopeds which are chain driven. Some models have an automatic continuously variable transmission (Variator). Braking is by front and rear drums. Power for the lamps, horn, and ignition is from a magnet; there is no battery. However, models with turning signal lights were equipped with a 6-volt battery for the blinkers to function. On newer models, the plastic fuel cap also serves as a measuring cup for the 2% oil-fuel mixture.

To be used in the UK it needs: UK Number Plate, MOT and Moped Insurance. MOT is 19£/Y 

Note: I have 8 between Ciao and Si Vespa to sell

I place them on Gumtree UK, Shpock UK or Facebook Market: search: Piaggio Ciao

My life on a Ciao Piaggio started in Italy where I come from.

I was only 6 year old when I started desiring one of them..just look at my eyes...

I saw my aunt Pia on a Ciao which she got after her last school exam! Very lucky...

She was always kind and allowed me to try it with her (standing of the foot rest and holding the handlebar with my cold hands)

In the meantime I was getting used to ride my bicycle..

At my 14th birthday my parents finally decided that I could ask Pia if she would gifted me with her Ciao

and she agreed ....

I started to love the Ciao Piaggio.

I'm 49 now and I have been living in London for 19 years.

I'm still in love with the Ciao.

I use it every day to go to work

across London from North Finchley to Whitechapel where I work as a paediatric surgeon..

Every day it's a pleasure to get around with my Ciao.

I only spend 2 pounds for 140 kms and when I finish my fuel I convert it to a bicycle and I start pedal ...

I learned to do home maintenance alone without relying on any mechanics...

saving a lot of money!

You can see my shed where I enjoy fixing them!

Recently I repaired an old ciao bringing it back to life. It makes me feel like operating my patients and get them better...

My life is very happy with my Ciao.
