A better look at the Piaggio MP3 front end

Post  JamesGoodchild on Thu Apr 19, 2012 9:28 pm

At the last club breakfast a few people were interested in seeing the front end on the Piaggio MP3. I've included a snapshot here showing how the front end articulates.



The ride is very much like a traditional motorcycle or scooter. Steering input and feedback is also very similar, not like the CanAm Spyder which is much more an ATV/snowmobile feel. The neat thing about this is when you come to an intersection, you can push a button and lock the 2 front wheels so you essentially end up with a tripod that supports both the bike and you without having to put your feet on the ground. As soon as you give it gas, the front end releases.

More details can be found on their website at http://www.uk.piaggio.com/en_UK/prodotti/mp3_touring/default.aspx
