Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > MP3 500 ABS
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The MP3 was a revolution when it first came out and it still is today - offering the only leaning three-wheel technology to date. Sadly it has not enjoyed the success that it deserves and is now only available in the 500 cc version.
