With the MP3, the world’s first three-wheel
scooter, Piaggio has created a new type of
vehicle and a new way to travel, introducing
unprecedented levels of safety and riding
A uniquely fascinating style, unbeatable safety
thanks to the exclusive ABS / ASR combination,
comfortably welcoming with even more room for
rider and passenger. Because only the people
who invented the three-wheel scooter can give
you more than anyone else. The Piaggio MP3:
the evolution of the original.
You can ride the Piaggio MP3 with a normal
driving licence, in both the 300 cc version and
the 500 cc version. An intelligent choice for
maximum comfort, road grip and enjoyment:
equally at ease in town and in the country.
The Piaggio MP3 is the first and only threewheeler equipped with ABS, developed
specifically by Piaggio together with
Continental, to guarantee maximum safety in
any situation and on any road surface, thanks
to the sophisticated three-channel control
unit. The scooter also features the innovative
Piaggio ASR electronic anti-traction system
to control the rear wheel, even on slippery
surfaces. Exclusive technologies to enhance
an already unrivalled level of reliability and
safety: 13” front wheels with extra-large
258 mm disks, accompanied by the integral
pedal-based brake system and the patented
front suspension deliver an inimitable riding
On city streets, the Piaggio
MP3 leads the way in safety:
it takes on cobblestones,
uneven or potholed tarmac,
tramlines, manhole covers with
unparalleled ease and stability.
Live, work and have fun with complete freedom
of movement with the Piaggio MP3. One of the
reasons for this scooter’s worldwide success is
its unrivalled combination of top-class
performance and the easy handling and safety
of three wheels. Available in an accessible
300 cc version and an exclusive 500 cc model,
at the cutting edge for ridability and
performance, with the electronic multimap
“ride-by- wire” system allowing you to select a
riding style as the mood takes you: sporty or
fuel saving. The whole experience is enhanced
by the carefully tuned intake and gears, and
an exhaust system designed to deliver a
pleasing sound. The Piaggio MP3 is special,
in every way.
Automobile-style instrumentation,
a dashboard with a handy button
to open the seat, a closed
glove compartment with a USB
socket for smartphones or other
electronic devices.
To take on the traffic with inimitable flair,
the Piaggio MP3 SPORT is available in
three matte colours - light grey, dark grey
and black - with glossy black finishes,
diamond finish wheel rims and double
fabric black seat.
If you want to stand out for style
and prestige, choose the Piaggio
MP3 BUSINESS with metallised
body in grey, white and black, and
sophisticated glossy grey finishes
and black seat.
The style of the Piaggio MP3 is sophisticated
and modern. A new streamlined, dynamic rear
with a clear Piaggio family feeling. The smart
and sporty truncated tail is fitted with LEDs,
while parabolic reflectors, the radiator grille
and 7-LED sidelights are distinctive elements
on the front.
The dashboard and restyled handlebar convey
a strong impression of class and quality. The
automobile-style instrumentation features a
large LCD display showing the information
from the on-board computer.
Every detail of the Piaggio MP3 is designed to
ensure matchless comfort and functionality.
The countershield offers soft-touch elements
coordinated with the seat. The protective
windshield has a smoked finish.
Maximum attention has been paid to
ergonomics: the seat is fitted with a damper
for easier opening.
More room for the rider and greater comfort
for the passenger thanks to the integrated
backrest and pull-out footpegs.
The easy-to-reach under-seat compartment has a 12v socket,
courtesy light, anti-slip map and anti-rain seat cover, and provides
ample room for two full-face helmets.
The Piaggio MP3 can be used with the
upgraded exclusive PMP system, the first
mobile app to expand your riding experience,
connecting you and your Piaggio scooter with
a world of services and friends.
Via Bluetooth, the PMP platform lets you
connect your iOS or “Android®”*smartphone
with the sophisticated on-board electronics,
putting a host of new functions at your
Parking problems are forgotten with the Piaggio
MP3, 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 unblocks
when the scooter begins to move, or when you
press the button again. If you stop on an incline,
a lever on the countershield activates the
parking brake.
The exclusive front suspension lock system means you
can stop at traffic lights without having to put your feet
on the ground. A great way to move freely when you
travel to work, go shopping or during leisure time.
It displays the speedometer, rev counter,
spot engine power and torque, angle of tile,
longitudinal acceleration, spot and average
fuel consumption, battery voltage and other
information, thanks to the virtual dashboard
function. The navi function locates where you
parked the scooter, or provides directions to
the closest fuel station or authorised service
centre as soon as you reach the reserve fuel
level or if a fault occurs. Get the most from
your Piaggio MP3!
Cut consumption and care for the
environment with the real-time tips from the
new eco function. Enjoy your trip in maximum
safety, thanks to the exclusive new
grip-warning function, which alerts you if
the road surface is slippery.
The PMP also stores all your trip data,
which you can download to analyse your
riding style. Thanks to the PMP, the Piaggio
MP3 user and maintenance manual will
always be just a click away, as well as your
vehicle registration, road tax and insurance
certificates. To find out more, visit
