Piaggio MP3 - The Jam-Busting King Just Got More Affordable 1

Piaggio MP3 - The Jam-Busting King Just Got More Affordable 1In 2006 Piaggio continued its long tradition of innovation with the introduction of the MP3, the first parallel tilting 3-wheel scooter. 200,000 bikes later and the Piaggio MP3 has become a familiar sight in cities around the world, leading the way in the trike market.

Its status as a tricycle allows car drivers aged 21 or over* to enjoy the same jam-busting freedom and economies as scooter and motorcycle riders, but with the added stability of a third wheel.

Now, just as car travel gets more time-consuming and public transport more expensive, the MP3 gets more affordable.  New MP3s registered between 15th September and 31st October 2017 will come with one year’s fully comprehensive insurance at a fixed price of £199.**

In addition, Piaggio 3Dom PCP finance at 6.9% APR is available on all MP3 models, making it possible to put a new MP3 Yourban on the road for less than £80 a month***

The Piaggio MP3 consists of four models in two body styles, with punchy and economical Euro-4 engines and “twist and go” automatic transmission.

The really clever part of an MP3 is the patented, twin-wheel front suspension, which mimics the riding sensations of a regular scooter.  Picture a slalom skier’s legs as they negotiate a course and you will get a feel for how the system works.  When the MP3 comes to a stop, the suspension roll lock system allows the rider to stay seated, with their feet on the footboards, ready for a quick getaway.

The MP3 range is in showrooms now and consists of:

  • MP3 Yourban 300 Sport at £6,499 on the road
  • MP3 300 Business at £7,499 on the road
  • MP3 500 Sport at £8,699 on the road
  • MP3 500 Special Edition at £8,699 on the road

Notes:

* Although not required by law, Piaggio recommends that car drivers without scooter or  motorcycle experience undertake suitable training before riding an MP3.

** Riders aged 25 or over.  Subject to acceptance by Lexham Insurance Ltd.  Terms and conditions apply.
