2016 Piaggio MP3 500 Available at Vespa Motorsport

Piaggio has completely redesigned and updated the technologies that power the iconic 3-wheeler that was first introduced in 2006. The re-birthed 2016 version of the MP3 500 is the perfect meld of style and technological enhancements. There’s a tremendous amount of underseat storage, Anti-lock braking system, traction control, and a Dashboard Cockpit that’s loaded with features.

The new design is sporty, elegant, and refined. The front shield keeps with the original MP3 250/400 style, but has a totally new form. The 13″ diameter, front mag wheels have a sporty dual-spoke, 5-star design; reminiscent of a modern-day high end European sports car. The rear view of the new MP3 flows smoothly with the clean lines of the new body. The wrap-around LED tail light is more streamlined and dynamic, elegantly housed in the thoughtfully sculpted new body work; highlighting the sports car character of the Piaggio MP3. The sporty look marries perfectly to the aggressive handling that’s quintessential to the articulating and tilting front wheels.

Whether it’s cross town or cross country, your only limitation is your imagination as to where you can go on your new MP3 500. It’s a nimble and convenient city scooter and an interstate cross country adventure cruiser that will take you where you want to go in comfort and style unmatched by any other scooter on the market.

I wish my money was available too.

Don’t buy one these new. You can save 30-50% buying used. Many for sale with low miles. Inexperienced riders think this is a really safe alternate to a motorcycle then become disappointed due to the weight and the fact that it can be just as dangerous as any other motor bike. You can find used for sale in most cases with under 3000 miles.

Cat S says:

You guys made it sound super sexy.

Kieran Foley says:

I hive a mp3 200 bike

magic2506 says:

Balancing a Gold Wing is easier than the Piaggio. It has somewhat a high center of gravity. When you unlock it, it immediately feels lie it wants to tip.

Tex Adenikan says:

I am selling mine. I live in South Africa. I just bought a 2017 range Rover so I won’t be needing mine any longer but great bike

K. LaBorde says:

Kenneth Lin says:

Can I trade in my 2009 MP3 500?

ddt says:

would be great if you ever got a deal on financing like all your other bikes. At $10700 out the door that’s a hard pill to swallow for a scooter.

David Close says:

Just bought a 2016 MP3 -500 and really enjoying so far

Bert Davis says:

I’ve been wanting one of these.  I’m glad they decided to bring it back to the US.
