Buyer's Guide > MP3 500 LT ABS
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The original leaning three-wheeler, the MP3 got a long-deserved update in 2018, with more power, new front brakes with updated petal-type discs, a redesigned front suspension and seat, and a windshield that offers more protection. There's all-round LED lighting as well, and the bodywork has been updated too. A sporty-looking version called the HPE is also available in 2019, at the same cost.
