Here is my Piaggio MP3 review. Background which the following comments: I’ve bicycles since I was a child. driven cars, manual and for over twenty years I know, big deal).

Before summer, I had never driven with a motor and less four wheels, so it was all new to me then.

a cycle or scooter is both familiar and utterly alien to my nature. On my bike, I sit more-or-less legs extending down; forwards into the handlebars; pedal and steer. It’s how I riding the world’s lightest laziest horse might

The Piaggio MP3 250 is an different animal. One realm is The seat is only about 18 the footbed, even though probably more like above the actual ground.

(Its body is a little two feet from side to and I’m a little less.) I feel kind of tiny by even though I have one it really doesn’t: height.

When I sit down on the scoot, I sit . and the machine benevolently permits my I’m sure as heck not enough to disturb it if it doesn’t like going anywhere. God any part of me ever gets between it and unchecked gravity.

As for my tendencies, it stands up more or by itself when at rest (if you it to). When you turn the towards you, it goes and you over balance.

When you the throttle a little more, it . (You’ve got control of mass and in a way that you don’t ever in a car, because THE CAR EATS YOU you drive one. The MP3, on the hand, is a barrel-chested little of modern engineering that you on, not in.)

I could be all pop-culture-referential and say I imagine like riding a worg or Cat, but it’s not. long and kinda squat, and wolves nor big cats usually get the adjective.

A bike is a lazy to me, but my scoot is much more riding a post-apocalyptic super-mutant wiener dog with an utterly disposition.

I’m sure possible to make it lose its in good conditions, but I will say that you’d have to at it. Ridiculously sure-footed would be even though I’ve tried to test it. But with the of gravity so low and so (relatively) well-supported by the wheelbase, even as an utter I feel I can ask it to maneuver pretty without much fear of over.

The 50cc two-wheelers I tried riding the MP3 are superficially comparable, but not in — because the third extra mass, and the bigger that drive it make a difference. As I discovered later I took the MSF course, it weaves and with unreal amounts of and you can lean over in a 15mph+ to remarkable degrees and still very stable. It’s a confidence-inspiring design for a new rider.

Since acquiring it last I have ridden nearly week, even through Minnesota winter. I sold my car to buy my and it’s been more fun any car I have ever owned. An scooter sounds like a lot of but compared to a new car it’s a pittance.
