The new Piaggio MP3 – the ideal commuter scooter debuts in the 500cc version with powerful yet highly economical engine. Because of its three-wheeled design it’s actually classed as a tricycle, and can therefore be ridden on any road, with a standard car licence. It is the first 'three-wheeler' in the world to boast an anti-lock braking system (ABS) integrated with ASR traction control (Acceleration Slip Regulation) – A Piaggio Group exclusive and technological first in this category.

The two front wheels are larger in diameter – now 13 inches – with a new design which benefits both the dynamic handling and the more dynamic look of the MP3's front end, which has become even more prominent.

The new 500cc engine adopts the ‘ride-by-wire’ engine control system that gives the rider the option to switch between two maps – ‘’standard’’ and ‘’eco’’. Fuel consumption is down by 15% on the standard map and a further 10% on the eco, making this vehicle up to 25% more fuel efficient. This new model also boasts PMP* (Piaggio Multimedia Platform) allowing you to connect through a Bluetooth, iOS or Android smartphone, in order to open up new and different functions including average fuel consumption and navigation to your nearest authorised service centre.

*PMP (Piaggio Multimedia Platform) is optional and only available as an accessory.
