may nakita akong mp3 dito one time ang ganda tingnan lalo na pag nagba-banking! head turner talaga.. didn't have a chance to take a closer look kasi hanep sa acceleration.

Title: Re: Piaggio MP3
Post by: lex on August 09, 2007, 08:30:59 AM
may mp3 na pala dito... i thought first batch yung dadating sa 2211, o may napasok na 2211?... wow ganda nga makita nun in the flesh lalo na sa curve...

boo, tama ka, more moving parts, more problems in the long run... but it's also a first in scooters kaya very interesting... may nabasa ring akong review na yung rider nagtataka kung bakit parang hirap siya gamitin, then he figured out na kaya siya nahihirapan kasi bawat kurbada, tama yung lean ng scoot.. unlike sa vespa na kinokorek korek pa nya every curve na madaanan nya until makuha nya yung tama...

anyway, let's hear it from the mp3 users here... sana may magreply .. cliff kelan ka magrereply?  ;D ;D ;D

a fully loaded mp3:

one thing's for sure: napakadali magbackride nito at mas lalo kang di mapapagod sa byahe kasi walang tukod. a great maxi-scoot for shorties like me.

Title: Re: Piaggio MP3
Post by: Slick on August 09, 2007, 10:56:52 AM
Hindi ko type yung mp3. Just like Boo, too many moving parts and the engine is only 250cc. Almost P400,000 for 250cc doesn't stick well with me. Can you imagine the great traction from the front? What if the rear gives? It's HIGH SIDE TIME baby!
Title: Re: Piaggio MP3
Post by: lex on August 09, 2007, 01:34:05 PM
o nga no .. hahaha isusuka ka ng mp3 .. high side big time  :D
still, sarap siguro masubukan yan ...

ganda nung gilera version ah. concept ba yun?
Title: Re: Piaggio MP3
Post by: direkpal on August 09, 2007, 08:53:19 PM
here's the thing about the mp3: when you slow down to stop, you have to engage a switch to "lock" the front suspension so that the scoot doesn't lean. otherwise, if you're not perfectly balanced, you might still topple over when you come to a full stop. one of the first things you'll have to learn is to time your "switching" properly so that you're locked by the time you come to a full stop and won't have to put your feet down.

if you're really hot to try riding the mp3, keep your ear to the ground as to when the units will arrive in 2211. i know for a fact that ricky montelibano is getting one.
Title: Re: Piaggio MP3
Post by: spank me on August 10, 2007, 01:08:04 AM
wow! look at the rider, looks like he is doing the curves with no effort at all.

Looks like the Gilera version has a big engine!!! maybe 400 or 500! I heard from a friend that there is also one in Baguio already. Must be grey market imports. 4 units na daw ang rolling around!

the gilera, if i recall correctly was supposed to come up with an 800cc version of the mp3, if my failing memory serves me right

update** yup memory has failed me, it is the 500cc
this is the Gilera GP 800 pala

wulffman -
sorry to disappoint you, pero ang GT ay 278,000 na ngayon.
ang LX 220,000 na.

sorry sa OT boss.
Title: Re: Piaggio MP3
Post by: wulffman on August 11, 2007, 06:30:49 PM
Wow! I thought peso is getting stronger.
Nag-appreciate kagad ang price. Good news to those who already have it and bad news to those still aspiring.

Direk, it only means one thing, that you can sell your bike despite already using it on the same or higher value you purchased it. Talking about ''VESPA" investment. Exactly whats happening with the PX, Ive heard its the only scoot in the market that doubles its original price or much more. Now, it extend its clout to its modern cousins(gt,lx...).

Hay, ipon ulit....... ;D

OT....sorry.

teka, kung meron syang "switch" so you wont topple pag stop, bakit nga pala meron syang centerstand? para hindi gumulong palayo pag naka-off ang engine? haha! ;D

Post by: ryan on November 15, 2007, 11:09:43 PM
Hi guys,

Seems like my friend got the 3rd MP3 (cherry red) from 2211. Ganda talga nya and solves the many hassles of riding a motorcycle (e.g. parking in tight spaces) especially for shorties like me.

Kaso lang, price is kinda steep for me. Hopefully, I can afford one next year hehe!

Title: Re: Piaggio MP3
Post by: Slick on November 16, 2007, 06:20:08 AM
Sarap ng MP3! Drove it the other day. Handles really well and has nice power considering it's only a 250cc. Feels really safe to drive. Good buy!
Title: Re: Piaggio MP3
Post by: spank me on November 16, 2007, 06:59:04 PM

may kapatid pala yung mp3 sa gilera...the fuoco 500.
Title: Re: Piaggio MP3
Post by: noblewolf on March 09, 2008, 03:11:53 AM
well actually the gilera fuoco 500 is badged as piaggio mp3 500 in the US. its a very ferocious beast! in what i've heard from john of piaggio asia pacific, they're bringing in 2 units this march 2008. passion red and demon black..the emotion red is a real hot italian! what i dont want on the demon black are the side fairings, they should have been made all in black rather than silver..parang nahati tuloy into two yung bike. but overall, this bike is not for shy type. because having this show stopping bike, you'll be expecting for a lot of people staring at you. you can sense the volume of fingers pointing at your back.. you might even get some cars stopping beside you rolling their windows down and you should be prepared for a thousand-and-one questions!

i think in singapore it is priced at around $16,000 to $17,000 MSRP. plus the COE, road tax, insurance and all meaning out of the door price will hit as high as $22,000.. haayyy.. kelan kaya..

Post by: Daddy D on March 09, 2008, 08:16:36 AM

Since there are only 3 MP3s in the country afaik, then this red one must have been 1 of the 2 that joined the Pagudpud ride.  I must say that the MP3 is really a head-turner everywhere it goes.  If a nice PX draws attention, then the MP3 does that tenfold.

Doms, bibili ka na ba ng MP3?  We are still waiting for your Vespa sidecar...

Tama ka Francis, mas matagal pa ako nakasakay sa F150 (automatic) kaysa PX150...

Para hindi OT, here are the 2 MP3s at the windmills of Bangui.

Randy, I don't think I need the power of the GTS so maybe the LXS might be just about right, if not maybe the GT.

Rasta, what's the Mio Soul?  I think you just want we to sell my BWS, hehe.

Again, para hindi OT.  The MP3 in Vigan...

pero bat ganun? pag lean sa kabila over 40degrees, i dunno if could it be the transmission casing or the center stand which is scraping the road.. pag sa kabila naman sayad naman ang silencer ng pipe..  and that every turn you should be very precise on banking, because you wont know you're leaning over 40degrees unless your pipe got scratched! :'(

For those two lucky dudes who got the first MP3's, is there any noticeable differences on riding a 2wheeled compared to 3wheeled bike? Talk about the learning curve on getting used to 2wheeled and get to a 3wheeled, could they be about the same or not? They said the MP3 is very stable and rock hard if the front wheels gripped the pavement and you dont have to worry about the li'l cracks or sand on the road, what if you get used to it and later on, you'll get back to your 2wheeled bike? Having a "3-wheel reliance mindset" over 2wheeled bike could be a bit worrying.. But of course, for some they'll say it's not about the bike, it's the rider.  ;D

Just a li'l bit of a concern though, I would appreciate some kinda assessment on these bikes from the users themselves. But I know they are still very busy enjoying their cool bikes! Might take some time.. hahaha

i guess the mp3 owners here will have no problems of adjusting from one bike to another for they have lots of italian scooters...right, slick? hehehehe. para kasing brief kung bumili at magpalit ng scooter sina slick eh..... ;D

hi vesvicoy,

the piaggio mp3 is really sweet! how are the vespa boys up there? my family moved there in baguio city couple years back. how i wish i can ride an mp3 up there and enjoy the twisties in marcos highway.. but problem is, tricycles are banned in baguio. it would be a very risky investment to buy a half-a-mil bike that you can't use because it is classified as tricycle. knowing the councilors up there...  well..

by the way, will it classified as a tricycle or a scooter in the or/cr?

dapat ata ang nakalagay sa LTO registration ay "motorcycle" to be valid to enter the NLEX.  pag "tricycle" or "scooter"... di papayagan.  correct me if i am wrong.
Title: Re: Piaggio MP3
Post by: silver2tone on May 13, 2009, 04:25:57 PM
hindi naman siguro tricycle ang nasa rehistro ng MP3, wala naman sidecar yun eh.  I think it's still a motorcycle. i know the maxiscooters enter NLEX on a regular basis, yung mga 400cc and up. i also know a buddy of mine who has an E-pass used an SYM 250cc last Sunday on the NLEX and did not get apprehended. i think if you get apprehended, the main issue will be displacement, so dapat lang 400cc and up.

pls. correct me if i am wrong, but, afaik our "scoots" are classified as motorcycles in our LTO documents.

this is the basis for maxiscoots (400cc up) in using the expressways in spite of the supposed ban on "scooters".

Was in the US last month...

Was browsing through Craig's list and noticed that slightly used MP3s in the US are very cheap...

Was able to buy one for $2800 plus $200 tax transfer fee...Total was ony 129,000.00 php...

Thought I could ship it home pabalik dito sa Pinas but it was so heavy pala....the 250cc I bought was almost 1000lbs! I think 945lbs to be exact...

It only had 5000miles on it...perfect condition...Under powered pala ang 250 na MP3...Siguro because of the weight....Tried it with my cousin sa old Mission rd sa bay area, sarap sa twisties pala...really like riding a motorcycle...most noticeable aspect ng MP3 for me is the braking power, ang lakas pag front ang ginamit mo....dahil siguro sa 2 disc brakes and 2 wheels sa harap...

Sa US, hindi ka required na may M1 endorsement sa license to ride the MP3...Pero sa tingin ko dapat may endorsement na M1 kasi it rides like a motorcycle talaga...Tinkered with the parallelogram mechanism sa 2 front wheels and it had a brake pad lang pala to lock the front wheels when you want it to stand like a trike pag below 2k rpm and 5miles/hr ang andar mo approaching a stop.

Just got home sa Pinas and rode my 125cc honda pcx scooter, parang mas gusto ko ata ang magaan hehehe ang bigat nung MP3.... Pero if I had the money to buy the MP3 dito, it would be a very good Sunday ride 2nd bike :-)

Left the MP3 sa US and asked my cousin to sell it again for me....sana may bumili na agad...

Thanks for viewing!!!

:-)

just wanted to say hi!  Pioy in Dallas, Texas --- MP3 500 rider --- I have the black one and my mrs has the red.

DF22 - the weights seem to be wrong on the mp3 250 --- my 500 is roughly 550 lbs...  California considers the the three wheelers as cars - other states including Texas you have to have an M endorsement


awesome site here guys --

salamat po!

By the way, I already sold the mp3 as it was really too heavy/expensive to ship...

Hello to everybody!  A newbie to this forum and boy, am I glad to see a thread about MP3s! I've had my 500 (she'll be referred as such and its a she  :)) roughly 4 years and it's been a blast. She's a daily driver and has done the task ask of her with gusto with no fuzz! Minor modifications are Givi topbox with Ardmore led lights,Stebel horn, Givi windscreen and Powermadd handguards. It's not a fast bike (about 90 mph), a bit heavy (good for crosswinds) but meets my riding needs here in the East coast. BTW, it's great for grocery shopping :).Will post some pics as soon a I figure how to.
