The fantastic and unique-styled Yamaha Giggle has been given a thorough stamp of approval thanks to its official adoption by the Fiat Yamaha MotoGP team. The retro-sculpted 50cc fuel-injected four-stroke will carry the personnel of the factory squad around the circuits and paddocks of the 2008 MotoGP championship and no doubt the manageable engine (Yamaha's only 50cc fuel-injected unit) and 33 litres of storage space will come in extremely useful, while the funky looks ensure that heads will be turned, and not only because of the individuals at the controls.
Indeed both riders have already customized their Giggle. "I like my brand new Giggle scooter I am using at the MotoGP paddock because it is different than the others, pretty different than all those I have seen and I have had in my life!... said Lorenzo, recent winner of the Portuguese Grand Prix. "It is very comfortable, the design is beautiful, the colors -above all the blue- are incredible and I love the customization with my "48"in gold and black.
With that scooter you can peacefully drive in the paddock area. It is also fast and sometimes it helps when you must move from the pit-box to the hospitality or motor home. You can easily run into the corners and you do not have to worry about anything! I would like to remind all "young riders" to wear a helmet with any kind of scooter or bike! The street is more dangerous than the circuit!
Manoeuvrable and agile this bike fits right in the paddock area; where quick and comfortable trips are necessary and panache and individualism are requisites. Quiet, efficient and now hopelessly 'hip', the Giggle may already have character but now it also boasts patronage and a lively spot in the public eye.
