Overview[edit]

Piaggio MP3 400 ABS












The PIAGGIO MP3 400 uses innovative technology and premium cycle components to re-invent the very concept of the scooter. With two front wheels and one at the rear, the PIAGGIO MP3 400 is sure to turn heads wherever it goes; its dynamic design offers unparalleled stability to provide an unprecedented riding experience.

Go out on the Piaggio MP3 400 and enter a completely new dimension: of sensations and safety. The two front wheels combine the ride dynamics typical of a motorcycle with incredible road holding. The parallelogram suspension system, a Piaggio patented innovation, guarantees unrivalled stability, even on wet or loose tarmac, or trailing other vehicles. The Piaggio MP3 400 is also distinguished by exceptional braking performance: thanks to the 3 wheels and 3 powerful 240mm disc brakes with twin piston calipers, allowing record deceleration (around 8 meters per second) and a stopping distance more than 20% shorter than that of normal two-wheeled scooters (even with ABS).

Designed using the most sophisticated CAD programs and rigorously tested at each stage of its development, the Piaggio MP3 400 is cutting edge in all of its details. The high-strength tubular steel frame guarantees the best stability and distribution of weight, in perfect harmony with the engine and suspensions. The dimensions and proportions are similar to those of a traditional scooter, with even a small front end. Developed in the wind tunnel, the bodywork combines a revolutionary look with dual functions: maximum protection for the rider at the front, comfort and exceptional storage capacity at the back.

Quick and safe, the Piaggio MP3 400 scooter darts in and out of city traffic as if it’s quite at home: it negotiates cobbles, rails and drain covers with unbeatable safety and stability. The seat, with integrated backrest and special ergonomic shape, is very comfortable and suits riders of all sizes, whilst its height from the ground promotes maneuverability and control in all situations. There is also comfort and protection for the passenger, thanks to the side handles for a perfect grip.

Piaggio MP3 scooter is extraordinary in every way, including its accessories; from the “winter pack” with the comfort windshield, the special winter tires, the heated leg cover and waistcoat, to the Tom Tom Rider GPS navigator with its 3.5” LCD monitor, the X-Jet helmet complete with a Bluetooth communication system, the electronic anti-theft device with remote and other great ideas. Actually, they are revolutionary: just like your Piaggio MP3 400.
