Save $1,000 on a New 2016 Piaggio MP3 500 Overview
The Piaggio MP3 is back and better than ever.
With ABS brakes, ASR traction control, larger front wheels, a completely redesigned frame and geometry, updated ergonomics, the most comfortable seat to ever grace a scooter, new instrumentation, a multimedia platform, groundbreaking multi-map “ride by wire” electronic acceleration, and updated styling, the new Piaggio MP3 will make you a believer.
Piaggio MP3 is… clever
Technology means practicality at any time and on any road. In its patented suspension and ultra modern engine Piaggio MP3 embodies all the experience and research that make it the most advanced scooter ever. And intelligent. The articulated quadrilateral front suspension, with two independent and tilting front wheels, is the heart of the Piaggio MP3: reliable, efficient and essential, it ensures rapid insertion into turns, good grip and the unique sensation of dominating the road.
Piaggio MP3 is… safe
New safety. The first 3-wheeler with ABS and ASR Piaggio Mp3 has been the first 3-wheeled scooter. Today, the new Piaggio Mp3 is the first three-wheeler in the world with ABS brake system integrated with ASR (Acceleration Slip Regulation) traction control.
+20% DECELERATING POWER
COMPARED TO A TRADITIONAL SCOOTER
The ASR system is an electronic traction control device regulating the driving wheel slippage. The ASR guarantees safety by preventing the slippage of the rear wheel on slippery or wet roads and uneven surfaces, for excellent rear tyre grip and roadholding in all conditions. The ABS system maximizes active safety preventing wheel blockage under braking and providing full control of the vehicle at all times.
Piaggio MP3 is… inimitable
The new Piaggio Mp3 has been given a completely new look, now more modern and elegant with evident hints of a motor car and a car-style refined finish and high perceived quality. The Style Centre of the Piaggio Group has completely redesigned the distinctive features, modernizing them and making them even more individualistic.
The front shield recalls the original model but has a totally new form. The wheel rims, now with diameter of 13”, have a new elegant design with 5 dual spokes: reminiscent of saloon cars and luxury autos.The rear zone of the Piaggio Mp3 is very different from the earlier model, with a new body. The tail is more streamlined and dynamic, elegantly truncated, highlighting the sports character of the Piaggio Mp3, reflected in its exceptional roadholding and tilt while turning.
Piaggio MP3 is… freedom
The riding pleasure typical of a motorbike, the practicality of a scooter and the safety only three wheels can guarantee. Piaggio MP3 is the answer because it was conceived and designed with a specific goal: to be the right vehicle in any situation. And to provide maximum fun, just like a motorbike. But with an extra wheel. The dimensions? Those of a traditional scooter. Piaggio MP3 is compact despite the two front wheels so it get you through traffic as quickly as you need it to. Without the risk of being trapped between cars. Ever again.
Traffic jams? Distant memories, from before Piaggio MP3 became a reality. Quick and agile, the most advanced three-wheeler ever takes never before possible lines, shooting out lightly and quickly. Beyond obstacles, stress and traffic. Piaggio MP3 conquers. With agility.
Piaggio MP3 is… agile
Its road holding capabilities mark the difference between Piaggio MP3 and all other vehicles. On wet roads and in turns, on pavement or any other road surface, Piaggio MP3 makes the difference thanks to its articulated quadrilateral front suspension and its intrinsic stability.
Piaggio MP3 is… protective
Innovation also means comfort, protection from the air and accidental bumps, space on the saddle for rider and passenger. And even more: suspension that allow you to travel thinking only about the pleasure of the ride. Because Piaggio MP3 knows how to take care of those who choose it.
The large shield, ample leg room and the ergonomic shape of the saddle for rider and passenger: Piaggio MP3 is designed to provide an exciting riding experience in maximum comfort. And its extraordinary cargo carrying capacity also makes the difference. Need to stow two helmets? They will conveniently fit in the helmet compartment. And your gym bag? That will fit too, along with a spare jacket.
Piaggio MP3 is… leader
How can you recognise a leader? By the personality, gestures and messages. And just like a true leader, Piaggio MP3 also conquers thanks to its strong character, exclusive riding dynamic and the safety and technology values that it represents. Its success? A natural consequence. Piaggio MP3 celebrates its leadership in sales as well, with more than 130,000 customers all over Europe: these are numbers that make the Piaggio three-wheeler the most advanced and popular expression of new mobility.
Piaggio MP3 is… protagonist
City, motorway, seaside and mountains: Piaggio MP3 is always at the centre of attention thanks to its familiar shape, painstakingly detailed finishings, unique technology and wealth of equipment. Revolutionary by vocation, Piaggio MP3 is a protagonist. On every day roads.
