Piaggio MP3 500

What Is It?

  • Low speed stability and grip, practicality, comfort
  • Heavy, limited range, storage, pricey when new, top speed

It's powered by a liquid cooled 492cc single cylinder four stroke fuel injected engine which puts out 40bhp at 7,200rpm and maximum torque at 5,500rpm.

Features include:

  • Steel tubular frame
  • Automatic CVT gearbox with belt final drive

The new 500 replaces the 400 in the MP3 range and as before the front wheels can be locked when upright, below 5mph, which is indicated by a few beeps, to keep it steady at the lights or when parked. It still auto-releases the lock when you set off and it's still cool. The advantage of two front wheels and fancy suspension is increased grip in the corners and while braking.

The 10-spoke 12" front wheels take 120/70 tyres and the rear 14" a 140/70. Accessories include the 37/50 litre top box, 42 litre panniers, comfort seat, sat nav, upgraded shocks and tall screen.
