The 2010 MY Piaggio MP3 500 is a big-bore trike, sure ti fit the taste of a wide range of Piaggio fans, and not only. It sports a liquid-cooled, four-stroke, 492cc, single cylinder Master lump mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT), and can produce 40 horsepower and 42 Nm of torque. As all its siblings from the MP3 family, it features the revolutionary parallelogram front suspension, as well as dual rear shock absorbers, which significantly increase its agility, whether through slow city traffic, or winding mountain roads. In addition, it is capable of long hauls, thanks to the standard windshield, the generous, two-up seat with lumbar support for the rider and the pillion grab rails.
