2013 Piaggio MP3 500 Review

2013 Piaggio MP3 500

Vintage look; modern technology…

The Piaggio MP3 500, with aggressive styling and performance, is the three-wheeler for people who want to stand out. Riding has never been this easy, enjoyable, secure and fast. When you take 20% less braking distance required and pair it with a lean angle of 40-degrees, you get a perfect machine for impeccable road holding in all riding conditions.

The MP3 500 is powered by a 500cc electronically injected engine making it the most powerful MP3 yet. It lives up to its sporty name with its sleek matte black or red body, chrome detailing and the aggressive looking front grill.
