First impressions: Piaggio MP3 scooter

C onsumer Reports had a chance to sample a few bikes at a driving event outside New This is part two of three. see our first impressions of the Aprillia 850 and Can-Am Spyder.

Piaggio MP3

the Can-Am Spyder, the MP3 scooter has three wheels, with two in The big difference is that unlike the the MP3 leans in turns like any Scooter. A button on the right can lock it upright at low speeds, for and standing at a traffic light.

There is also a manual brake.

The version we drove had the engine offered, a fuel-injected single-cylinder with 40 hp, mated to a variable transmission, as is typical scooters. It also had a large, fairing and windshield.

The MP3 is hefty. It 538 pounds and costs $8,899—more many midsized motorcycles. versions, with 244 cc and 399 cc engines are for $7,199 and $8,699, respectively.

Jim Travers: The Piaggio MP3 is an interesting Like the CanAm Spyder, it is a with two wheels up front. But the Spyder, the two wheels are close and a sophisticated suspension lets you in turns like a conventional This is good. But when you can lock the suspension so the bike itself up.


That’s a convenience, I guess, and work sort of like wheels for a new rider. But two wheels always weigh more one, and the MP3 felt front-heavy to me. weight plus added doesn’t add up to fun for me.
