In a revolutionary move, Piaggio is releasing the MP3 motor scooter with two front wheels. According to Fullboost, the Piaggio MP3 provides better safety, road grip and stability levels than a two wheel scooter, also better braking. Especially in bad driving conditions such as rain and gravel roads. An electro-hydraulic tilt-locking system means no kick stand. And the system will operate at any angle so you don’t need to find a level parking area.
According to Piaggio’s Brand Manager Simon Gloyne, “Not since Enrico Piaggio introduced Vespa to the world in 1946 have we seen such a revolution in transport for individual mobility.”
The Piaggio MP3 will be available in two engine displacements, 250 and 400 cc.

The 2008 Yamaha Vino Classic looks just as cool as ever. Again, combining Euro styling with the Yamaha technology, this baby is quite the attention getter. From the Yamaha website: It has a Four-stroke engine to provide for more power and fewer emissions, electric starting with kickstart option, fully automatic V-belt transmission ensures easy, twist-the-throttle-and-go operation, high-energy ignition system for precise, high-voltage spark for seamless engine performance and reliability and automatic choke which makes cold starting easier.
I also like the Underseat storage compartment for a helmet and the rear rack for schoolbooks or groceries. Starting at $1,949.
Talk about a nice looking scooter. It’s slick and cool looking, and it’s liquid cooled 2-stroke motor gives it some impressive power. Peugeot’s New C-Tech R-Cup Scooter has 13” alloy wheels with Pirelli tires and a 226mm ‘wavy’ disc at the front, backed up by a 190mm disc at the rear, for ultimate stopping power.
Man I’d like to take this machine out on some nice winding country roads around my home.
