It doesn’t take a genius to than in the ice and snow, a two wheeled is not the most stable. Four is but what about three? at the risk of cutting off this test report shorter the planned four pages, if thinking of venturing out in the snow winter and you don’t have a then the Piaggio MP3 is the scooter for It was brilliant.

Thank you very much and

Of course there is more to it that, and I must hasten to add to the best of my knowledge Piaggio has marketed its range of MP3 scooters as transport across the Alps in either. Let’s be serious; in the snow is probably not the most pastime.

I was confused, but still As the back end made like an I got a boot down and together the two front wheels we kept the upright as it continued its mid-road
