2019 MP3 Sport 500 hpe

The new mp3 sport 500 hpe

The new Piaggio MP3 is a concrete response to the demand for easy, fun and extremely safe vehicles for city traffic or the non-stop, expanding metropolitan areas.

Comfort has improved overall thanks to the newly designed saddle, back rest and grab handles. Couple that with a revised top fairing and you’ll have a very aerodynamic, protective front end.

The two front wheels and the patented suspension system combine car like safety with the simplicity and fun of a scooter. The Piaggio MP3 is truly able to satisfy a global audience: from the driver looking for a practical but safe alternative, to the advanced motorcyclists who appreciates the technical advantages of this unique vehicle.

The Piaggio MP3 Sport 500 HPE stands out from prior models and competitors with its matte black finish details, exhaust system cover, wheels and front fascia.

The big news is represented by the pair of high-performance Kayaba gas rear shock absorbers, guaranteeing more traction, better stability and better comfort.

The bike also introduces wave type rotors and aluminum foot-board inserts.

The ASR system is an electronic traction control device regulating the driving wheel slippage. The ASR can be switched off simply and it guarantees safety by preventing the slippage of the rear wheel on slippery or wet roads and uneven surfaces, for excellent rear tyre grip and road holding in all conditions. The Piaggio Group is the first manufacturer to use rear wheel traction control for a scooter, in-house developed technology, based on racing experience and subsequently adapted and built into city vehicles.

The ABS system maximizes active safety preventing wheel blockage under braking and providing full control of the vehicle at all times. Developed specifically for the Piaggio Mp3, it uses a Continental control unit and three channels controlling the three wheels individually modulating only the braking force to prevent grip loss. Piaggio Mp3 employs an all-disc braking system on the three wheels, with a disc diameter of no less than 258 mm. Greater safety and an even smoother ride are provided by large larger 13 inch diameter front wheels.

The blocking mechanism of the front suspension, a distinguishing feature of the 3-wheel Italian scooter, transforms the balance of the Piaggio Mp3 from dynamic to static. Start up the Piaggio Mp3 and it stays in balance on the three wheels without the need for a stand (fitted nonetheless). To resume normal operation accelerate or use the dedicated push button. This means you never need to put your foot in the ground and you can park the Piaggio Mp3 anywhere, easily and without effort.
