New engine, new performance

Performance and efficiency are the standout characteristics of the new single-cylinder 500 hpe (High-Performance Engine). It boasts an increase in performance of around compared to the previous 500cc, with maximum power of 44.2 CV and, in the three-wheel world, a significant reduction in fuel consumption. The “Ride by Wire” electronic acceleration system optimises engine operation distribution and flow even at low speed by means of changing the engine map with a mere touch of a button on the handlebar. Also new is the transmission cover and the finish of the external crankcase, whose exhaust comes with a new silencer, reducing perceived noise level and optimising timbre.

Safety starts with an “A”

“A” as in ABS. Developed together with Continental, the three-channel ABS offers outstanding active safety levels, avoiding wheel blocking during braking manoeuvres and ensuring you have control in any situation. The two large 13-inch front wheels also contribute to the exceptional safety and improved road surface absorption capacity.

“A” also as in ASR  (Acceleration Slip Regulation) with it easy deactivation function ensuring the rear wheel won’t skid on greasy surfaces such as wet asphalt.

Distinctive features

The jewel in the crown of the Piaggio three-wheeler is the front wheel electro-hydraulic articulated quadrilateral suspension tilted blocking system. This enables the bike not only to stay upright when stationary at lights or stop signs, but also makes it easy to push or move it with the engine off. Parking is also a breeze as there is no need to use the kickstand. Think of it like flying – you get around without having to put your feet on the ground.

More than mere style

The front shield, with its totally “now” features, is equipped with a new grill and updated LED indicators, giving it an elegant, contemporary look. Its eye-catching aesthetics are matched by features designed to ensure a supremely comfortable ride, such as the new smoke-grey windshield seat-footwell-handlebar combination, reflect the new Piaggio MP3’s attitude to both touring and daily getting around town and greater metropolitan areas. Elegant, welcoming and practical: the spacious rear top box, available on request, can carry all the “must-haves” necessary for even the most demanding journey. The upper shell is painted in the same colour as the scooter and comes with a comfy backrest to ensure the passenger also gets to travel in style and enjoy the view.

Elegant and Metropolitan

With its exclusive finishing, the MP3 500 hpe Business stands out for its small, but precious, details such as the protective cover of the new exhaust outlet and matt-grey finishing of the wheel spokes and central tunnel.

There’s something else which distinguishes this model from the rest and that is Vio, the first TomTom navigator developed for scooters. A waterproof screen, driving indications you can read at a glance, anti-traffic system and caller display all help to ensure you make your way through the traffic quickly and seamlessly (non-standard feature) The MP3 500 hpe Business is available in a range of colours perfect for taking on city traffic with class and elegance.
