Piaggio MP3 LT 400cc review

MP3 LT400. safer than two

Piaggio has just launched they reckon will all those London-luvvies who find the concept of two wheels a bit scary.

The MP3 LT is a scooter with one big difference, an wheel at the front. Yes this has been around for a while and you have seen three scooters kicking around but not quite like this Because the axel distance the front wheels is over this scooter classes as a and can therefore be ridden on either a car or a full bike licence, and a crash helmet!

So anyone with a car licence can up, hand over their and wobble off down the road on it a crash helmet! Although at point we should mention Piaggio don’t recommend you it without a lid and offer a training as part of the cost!

So what’s it to ride? At first the MP3 feels a very front-heavy scooter. a bit odd to start with but as soon as you get the MP3 is brilliant fun.

The extra wheel at the front losing the front end virtually so you simply charge over any or pothole in the road with confidence you won’t fall Where on a normal bike you exercise a bit of caution, especially if wet, on the MP3 you just plough on of the condition of the road’s surface. like riding a bike but none of the skill or forward required!

When you eventually to stop the MP3 is no harder to balance a normal bike, and it comes a neat button that the front wheels so they lean over, meaning you can sit on the with both feet off the This is, however, a bit of a mute with us.

The button only locks the when the bike is at walking and automatically unlocks them when you start moving but the problem is that if you lock the when they are slightly over (in a corner or on a camber in the when you come to pull in the split second before the unlocks itself you are forced to in the direction the wheels are pointing, can get a bit scary. It’s a system is best avoided until you get to the bike’s quirks.

Although the front end has an extra filtering on the MP3 is easy and it’s not that much wider a normal big scooter, you just to be slightly aware of the extra when it comes to cutting traffic or slipping past

With the MP3 Piaggio has opened the to a new type of commuter. The extra makes riding it safer, the it does 80mph means commutes are possible and, of all, you don’t need to the hugely complicated new bike to rid it. The asking price of £6,499 OTR fees is a touch high, but to a years train ticket decent value for money.

do you reckon, is this the future or a idea designed to appeal to city types?
