The 398.9cc four-stroke single will power the MP3 LT to an indicated 100mph without too much trouble but don’t expect a white-knuckle ride on the way. Acceleration is fairly sedate at all times, even by maxi-scooter standards. Yamaha’s 500cc T Max, which makes 9bhp more, would comfortably beat the MP3 LT in a traffic light grand prix. As with most large twist-and-gos, throttle response is slightly delayed. It’s more a case of twist and wait.
