I find this video hilarious for all the right reasons.

Here is HJ (the legend!) riding the new version of the same MP3 I bought, from the same dealer, test driving it on the same roads I did, talking about the exact reasons I bought one.

Have to say that the MP3 is not perfect, but I love mine and it has saved me tons of time and parking money with a huge smile on my face.  Recently, I even did over 1000 miles in 24 hours.

Help please !
Can i press and hold the Tilt lock button into lock position ( such as in emergency) before i come on a full stop rather than clicking it once after the light comes on ?

They have them here, but can be driven only on a motorcycle licence….  Good for old people , in a warmer climate, as there is more space for shopping….If I had one I would be cornering on only two wheels  Hahaha!!

Roger Smith says:

In Australia the 400 and 500 Piaggio MP3 require a bike licence and all the training that goes with that. The smaller Yourban 300 has a wider spread of the front wheels and in some states does not require motorcycle training. They are a good idea for someone who wants extra stability but still likes to ride. If you are planning any open road touring the 500 is a better choice as it has more power and is better suited to a long day on the road. The 400 would do it but the 500 would be better.
