What Is It?

The Piaggio MP3 500 is a premium three wheeled maxi scooter and is powered by a liquid cooled 492 cc single cylinder engine, producing 40 bhp at 7,200 rpm and maximum torque at 5,500 rpm.

Features include:

  • Steel tubular frame
  • Automatic CVT gearbox with belt final drive
  • Dual 240 mm discs up front with single piston calipers
  • 280 mm disc at the rear with single piston caliper
  • Adjustable dual rear shocks with 108 mm travel
  • ABS system
  • Traction control
  • Foot brake for all wheels
  • Steel braided brake lines
  • USB port above dash
  • Centre stand

The new 500 replaces the 400 in the MP3 range. The front wheels can be locked when upright, below 5 mph which is indicated by a few beeps, to keep it steady at the lights or when parked.

It auto-releases the lock when you set off and it's still a cool feature. Two front wheels and fancy suspension offers 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.

Colours: Black, white, grey, blue
