2013 Piaggio MP3 400, Awesome 3-Wheeled Commuting

The 2013 Piaggio MP3 400 is one of the glorious commuting solutions for those who will not ride a motorcycle, but still think they'll do much betthe than driving a car.

If a classic maxi scooter is too common, switching to a “reversed-trike” will definitely do. And with the advanced dual wheel tilting technology, you can ride the 2013 Piaggio MP3 400 really hard in the city, while being also a great highway racer.

The 2013 Piaggio MP3 400 is a wonderful piece of machinery but it is no toy: 34 hp and 37 Nm (more than 27 lb-ft) of torque mean serious acceleration, while the CVT and automatic centrifugal clutch make operating it a breeze. Triple disc brakes ensure all the stopping force needed; and you will need it as the MP3 400 can do 88 mph (141 km/h).

With up to 188 miles (300 km) on a 3.2 gal (12 l) tank, the 2013 Piaggio MP3 400 means good fuel economy. The price however, reaches the one for a motorcycle: $8,699 (€6,530).
