Piaggio reports: [edited]

Piaggio launched the first Vespa model — and with it the scooter phenomenon — in the spring of 1946. Sixty years on, Piaggio has come up with another revolutionary product: the MP3, an innovative three-wheeler with two front wheels.

Because of its innovative three-wheel concept, the MP3 is equipped with a revolutionary electro-hydraulic front suspension locking system that keeps the vehicle upright without using the usual central stand.

To ensure rider safety, the tilt mechanism not only shuts off by pressing the handlebar switch, but is also automatically deactivated if vehicle speed exceeds 15 kph, if the butterfly valve is not fully closed or if engine rpm is higher than 3000.

The MP3 is type-approved as a standard two wheeled motorcycle and is available in two engine displacements, 125 and 250 cc.
