Piaggio’s three-wheeled MP3s have proven somewhat popular, with worldwide sales topping 80,000 units since the introduction of these tripods in 2006.
Canadians will get a new MP3 model, called the MP3 City (North Americans
appreciate a better name choice than the Euro-spec MP3 Yourban).
The MP3 City is downsized to a more manageable size, sporting a wheelbase that is 100 mm shorter than the MP3 400, now at 1,440 mm (57 in).
Piaggio claims a wet weight of 205 kg (452 lb), down considerably from the MP3 400’s 238 kg (524 lb).
Power comes via a liquid-cooled and fuel-injected 278 cc single with four valves. The manufacturer claims 22 hp and peak torque of 17 lb-ft.
The MP3 City is one of three new Piaggios coming to Canada, we’ll have pricing as soon as it’s available.
