It seems quite a few of the new Piaggio MP3 tilting three wheelers are getting out on the road now and several of their new owners are leaving their impressions here at The Kneeslider. From the sound of it, performance from the 250cc version is more than adequate for highway riding which seemed to be a sticking point for some potential buyers. Judging from new owner comments, you can put that concern out of your mind. Of course, if you’re used to a large displacement motorcycle, you’ll say it’s underpowered, but you’re probably not the person who is considering one of these in the first place.
I particularly liked the comments from Bill who took one out for a test ride and initially felt a bit unsure of himself but then quickly got the feel for it, pretty much the same as it would be for any completely different bike. He placed his order, too, which says a lot. Chris already has over 1800 miles on his and regularly rides the freeway.
If you’re a new MP3 owner, tell us what your experience has been. If you’re considering one, check out the comments.

UPDATE: We are getting a LOT of questions here at The Kneeslider about when and where the MP3 will be available. The place to go is the nearest Piaggio or Vespa dealer. For Locations check the dealer map.
