The 2011 MY Piaggio MP3 250 sports a liquid-cooled, four-stroke, 244cc, single cylinder Quasar lump mated to a continuously variable transmission, and can produce, 22 horsepower and 21 Nm of torque. It may have the smallest displacement in the MP3 family, but that doesn't make it less fun, because, it tips the scale at only 204 kg, which means increased agility, even when two-up. In addition, it features the acclaimed parallelogram front suspension package, with electr-hydraulic suspension locking system, which ensures great handling, whether on tight city alleys, or winding mountain roads. Also, the under-seat storage compartment can house two full size helmets, which mean it can be enjoyed two-up as well.
