autoevolution

Segment: Trike

This modern cross between a trike and a scooter is sure to appeal to those riders who want an unique machine, without the price tag that usually comes with a custom-built one.

At its heart lies a liquid-cooled, four-stroke, 244cc, singe cylinder Master engine mated to a continuously variable transmission, and can produce 22 horsepower and 21 Nm of torque. In the MP3 family, this version is the lightest, nimblest, and also, the most economical one, with a claimed gas mileage of 60-65 mpg. But, that doesn't mean it is less fun, thanks to the acclaimed parallelogram front suspension system, which makes for improved maneuverability, whether in busy city traffic and narrow alleys or on twisting mountain roads.
