“Just keeps on running”

Written on: 21/10/2013 by Vennwood (2 reviews written)

I have owned my MP3 - 250 for just over 3 years now and apart from one battery failure it hasn't let me down. The battery failure was arguably my fault as I didn't use it for a 3 month period and had to charge it up just before taking it for its 1st MOT and the garage maintained they had to change the battery in order to pass the MOT. We have used this scooter almost exclusively with two people up and running at its max weight. We manage to get some 150+ miles per tank which is roughly 50mpg so… Read Full Review

I fancy one but I've never ridden one before. Are they cheap to insure, tax, fuel up etc? Have a full car licence, and I'm a woman so wonder if one might be too heavy. Just would like to know more about them and how popular they are.

Cheap to insure - approx £150+ depending on your circumstances. Tax £75 per year, Fuel with one up I get around 75+ but drops to 55+ with two up. They are a tad heavy but once you get used to them they are fine - much easier than say a two wheeler 250cc. Very popular and I think the police use them in London so can't be that bad. Take a test drive at a dealers

Written on: 04/03/2011

I have owned my 250 mp3 for 3 years now and it is my only form of transport and herein is the problem it is so unreliable. During the last year I have had to take the bus at least once a week in 18 of those weeks. I have had it serviced every 6 months but still it is in the garage at least once a month. I have spent £1500 in 12 months and the year before was no better. Batteries are lasting on average 6 months (yes the very reputable dealer has checked for faults). I have replaced the back disc… Read Full Review

“I bought the MP3 250 from new as my first scooter over...”

Written on: 21/05/2010

I bought the MP3 250 from new as my first scooter over two years ago. It is used daily for a ten mile round-trip commute and has been trouble free other than the battery failing in the past week. It handles well and is a fun ride. The only sign of poor quality/wear has been that some screw heads were rusted over before the first service, but it is currently having its 10k service and I have yet to get the mechanic's report and bill.

I had hoped to use the MP3 as my main form of transport, but… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/07/2009 by Tony Rhodes (1 review written)

After many years of riding two wheelers, and having had a Piaggio X9 250 for 3 years I traded it in, last August, for the MP3. For sheer stability in crosswinds, and the joy of riding it around bends at speeds beyond which a 2 wheeler is capable, it cannot be bettered.It is a brilliant piece of engineering. On the downside, though,the quality of the materials leaves a lot to be desired. After only a few weeks the silencer,and some screws, started to rust.Now,I notice that there is some… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/04/2009 by cetro62 (1 review written)

I have my MP3 for 8 months now, so far is the best bike I ever had.
It rides extremely smooth due to a well designed suspension.
The sense of security is good, Piaggio states that from having 3 wheels it has a 30% more grip on the road, also it brakes like car.
If you like to turn heads; this is the bike, there is not a single time I go out without someone asking about it, from children to old ladies… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/11/2008 by tmd4real (1 review written)

I'm 64 years young and own a 2007 MP3 250. Great around town but even greater on the Turnpike. Unbelievable at 70+ mph. Fantastic on back roads with room to roam. Everybody looks. Topic of conversation at fuel and food stops. 60+ mpg.
You can't ask for anything more… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/01/2008 by the elements600 (8 reviews written)

I recently took the mp3 250 out for a test ride just out of curiosity to see how a 3 wheeled bike would handle. Despite being quite a heavy machine it's still rather quick, reaching around 80-85mph. Cornering is hilarious with two front wheels; you can really throw it around and it just grips! The mp3 is also no wider than a normal two wheeled scooter so filtering is no problem. Putting both your feet up at traffic lights is interesting too. The only thing I didn't get a chance to try out is… Read Full Review
