THINK ORIGINAL THINK CLEVER When Piaggio introduced the MP3, the world’s first tilting three-wheel scooter, in 2006, we created a new type of vehicle and a new way to travel, combining the agility and convenience of a conventional scooter with the extra stability and safety of the third wheel. The MP3 500 is the latest evolution of this uniquely fascinating style, now even safer thanks to its ABS braking and ASR traction control combination and even more comfortable with its larger, more luxurious dual seat. As the MP3 500 is categorised as a trike, it can be ridden by car licence holders, aged 21 or over, as well as motorcycle licence holders*. The Piaggio MP3 500: the evolution of the original. *Piaggio recommends that car drivers without scooter experience undertake suitable training before riding an MP3. The Piaggio MP3 500 is the first and only three-wheeler equipped with an ABS braking system, developed specifically by Piaggio and Continental, to give maximum reassurance in any situation and on any road surface, thanks to its sophisticated three-channel control unit. MP3 500 also features Piaggio’s innovative ASR electronic traction control system, which prevents the rear wheel from spinning, even on slippery surfaces. 13” front wheels soak up bumps and potholes and conceal extra-large 258 mm discs, while the patented Piaggio front suspension design ensures an enjoyable and agile ride. THINK SAFETY With almost 150,000 sold, MP3 has become a byword for fun and freedom of movement all around the world. Its unrivalled combination of top-class performance and the easy handling and security of three wheels opens up a range of possibilities, on the open road or in the daily commute. With its athletic 40bhp, four-valve engine and multimap “ride-by-wire” system giving the choice of Sport or Economy modes, the MP3 500 is a perfect match for any journey, while its slim profile makes it the antidote to traffic jams. THINK FREEDOM Riding an MP3 500 gives an uninterrupted view of the road ahead and of the automobile-style instrumentation with all controls close to hand, while the large mirrors take care of what’s behind. Choose the Piaggio MP3 SPORT for its matt paintwork, gloss black detailing, diamond finish wheel rims and double fabric black seat… …or the Piaggio MP3 BUSINESS if high-gloss paint, grey detailing and a black seat is more your style. PIAGGIO MP3 SPORT PIAGGIO MP3 BUSINESS The style of the Piaggio MP3 500 is striking and modern. Streamlined, dynamic bodywork with a clear Piaggio family feeling, a contoured tail with LED lights and a distinctive frontal design incorporating parabolic reflector headlights and 7-LED sidelights. The dashboard and restyled handlebar underline the quality of construction, while the easy to read instrument binnacle features a large LCD display showing information from the on-board computer. Every detail of the Piaggio MP3 500 is designed with comfort and convenience in mind: The countershield conceals an enclosed glove compartment with a USB socket for smartphones or other electronic devices and the protective windscreen has a smoked finish. Maximum attention has been paid to ergonomics with more room for the rider and greater comfort for the passenger thanks to the integrated backrest and pull-out footpegs. The damper-assisted seat opens effortlessly at the press of a button to reveal illuminated storage for two full-face helmets, a 12v power socket, anti-slip map and rainproof seat cover. NEW DESIGN PMP PIAGGIO MULTIMEDIA PLATFORM Your Piaggio MP3 500 can be ordered with the accessory Piaggio PMP system, the first mobile technology to expand your riding experience, connecting you and your MP3 500 with a world of interactivity. Using Bluetooth and a dedicated app, the PMP platform lets you connect your iOS or “Android®”* smartphone with the MP3’s sophisticated on-board electronics, putting a host of new functions at your fingertips. MORE TECHNOLOGY Parking problems are forgotten with the Piaggio MP3 500, whose electronic roll-lock system enables you to park the scooter anywhere*, without having to use the stand. Just press a button on the handlebar to activate the roll-lock system and keep the Piaggio MP3 perfectly stable when parked. The system automatically unlocks when the scooter begins to move, or when you release the lock button. If you stop on an incline, a lever on the countershield activates the parking brake. The lock system also means you can stop at traffic lights without having to put your feet on the ground. The app enables your smartphone to display the speedometer, rev counter, spot engine power and torque, lean angle, longitudinal acceleration, spot and average fuel consumption, battery voltage and other information, thanks to the virtual dashboard function. In addition, the navi function locates where you parked the scooter, or provides directions to the closest fuel station as you reach the reserve fuel level, or your nearest Piaggio retailer. It even stores your MP3 500 user and maintenance manuals and documentation. PMP provides other ways for you to get more from your MP3 500, with the real-time tips from the eco function that helps cut fuel consumption and reduce emissions, while the grip-warning function will alert you if the road surface is slippery. Finally, at the end of your ride, PMP stores your trip data, for you to download and analyse your riding style.
