The 2012 MY Piaggio MP3 Touring 400 I.E. is a mid-displacement trike that addresses riders who want to spend more time behind the bars, whether solo or two-up. It comes standard with a spacious, two-up seat, with lumbar support for the rider and pillion grab handles, a windshield, for more protection against the elements, and a standard hard trunk, offering one of the best storage capacities in its class.
At its heart lies a liquid-cooled, four-stroke 399cc, single cylinder powerplant mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT), that produces 34 horsepower and 37 Nm of torque. In addition, it has a parallelogram front suspension system, which give it superior cornering abilities.
