In 1946 PIAGGIO launched the first Vespa models and even today the icon of cheap personal transportation can still be seen scooting around big cities. Sixty years later the company is launching the PIAGGIO MP3 and while it may simply look like a sleek, modernized scooter it’s most unique feature is the double set of wheels in the front.

With a revolutionary front suspension both wheels can tilt independently up to 40 degrees allowing the PIAGGIO MP3 to corner just like a regular scooter does. However the addition of a second wheel in the front also has unique advantages such as better braking as a result of the extra disc and most importantly much higher levels of stability than a standard two-wheeled scooter.

For all you gearheads the technical specs on the PIAGGIO MP3 as well as videos of it in motion are available on its website.
