2009 Piaggio MP3 400 - (Australia)

September 12th, 2008

Piaggio Australia has sliced $1000 off the price of its three-wheeled MP3 400, with the revolutionary maxi scooter now available for $10,990 (plus ORC).

The MP3 400 features the 'Master' 400cc liquid-cooled four-valve engine, which produces 25Kw at 7500rpm and 38Nm of torque at 6500rpm. It also meets strict Euro 3 emission standards.

The MP3 family, which also includes a 250cc version, has safety and stability levels that no other two-wheelers can match, especially on uneven and wet surfaces. They take on rough asphalt and tram tracks with the greatest of ease, and are no wider than a comparable two-wheel maxi scooter. And when it rains, they shine on slippery and oil-stained roads.

"The three-wheel concept has been well received in Australia with our diverse conditions, and it has been widely endorsed in the media," said Piaggio Brand Manager Simon Gloyne. "

We simply wanted to make this model even more affordable for the weekday commuters and weekend tourers."

The MP3s are type-approved as standard two-wheeled motorcycles. This means licensing and registration requirements are the same as for a motorcycle.
