Bike of the day: Piaggio MP3 LT 300

Published: 05 February 2019

The Piaggio MP3 belongs to a family of three-wheeled scooters that use a trick parallelogram suspension set up to allow you to lean the bike into turns. LT (large tread) versions like this one qualify as tricycles and can be ridden on a car licence.

Unlike the Yamaha Niken three-wheeler, the MP3’s suspension can be locked out at low speed, meaning it will stand up on its own.

This Piaggio MP3 LT 300 Yourban has a 278cc engine that produces 22.8bhp and is capable of a top speed of 70mph. Despite the added weight of that suspension and extra wheel, the Piaggio is surprisingly good on fuel, managing around 80mpg.

Due to the extra wheel it is incredibly stable in all conditions and is untroubled by potholes and rough surfaces, giving the rider huge confidence. If pushed beyond the limit of grip, the front will understeer rather than low side.

If you're still not convinced by the three-wheeled concept, why not check out the video below, which shows factory Aprilia MotoGP riders Scott Redding and Aleix Espargaro putting them through their paces:
