The MP3 300 is a sporty three-wheeler designed with fun and agility in mind. Thanks to its innovative construction the Piaggio MP3 300 has great stability and can move through congested traffic situations with ease.

It is propelled by a pretty lively 278 cc, electronically injected, single cylinder, four-stroke unit that puts out a maximum power of 22.80 HP (16.6 kW) @ 7750 RPM and 24.00 Nm (2.4 kgf-m or 17.7 ft.lbs) of torque at 5750 RPM. The engine is paired with a modern CVT automatic transmission.

The three-wheeler’s backbone is represented by a closed double cradle in high strength tubular steel frame.

The frame is combined with a set of innovative suspensions that include a front tilting parallelogram with 4 arms supporting 2 steering tubes and 2 double acting hydraulic shock absorbers at the back.


MP3 is a compact three-wheeler with slender lines making it agile and easy to handle, ideal for moving through traffic easily and in complete safety.

Available with a 300 cc electronic injection engine, MP3 stands out for its innovative equipment and finishing which is at the top of its category.


The sophisticated Piaggio Multimedia Platform, available from among the many dedicated accessories for the Piaggio Mp3, illustrated in the catalogue, connects your smartphone to the on-board electronic system, turning it into a multi-purpose instrument, a computer able to display simultaneously data such as speed, revs, engine power and torque in real time, as well as acceleration in a straight line, tilt in cornering, average and current fuel consumption, average speed and battery voltage among a host of other functions. A smartphone connected with the Piaggio Multimedia Platform can also be used to display maps and routes or to find the location, for example, of petrol stations or support services. The tyre condition monitoring feature takes synergistic advantage of the vehicle and smartphone sensors to monitor tyre wear and inflation, immediately alerting the rider of any potentially critical situations. The general analysis feature monitors vehicle condition.

Two versions: different characters, same safety

The Piaggio Mp3 is available in Business and Sport versions, with dedicated equipment and colour schemes.

Piaggio Mp3 Business – sober and elegant

The Business version, elegant and city-friendly, characterized by a “Business”plate on the rear part of the tail, distinguishes itself through some prestige details, such as the chrome-plated exhaust pipe on the Mp3 500, the new brown saddle with dual lining, and the finish in glossy grey of the wheel rims and the passenger grab handles. The elegance of Piaggio Mp3 Business is highlighted by the two chrome-plated versions available: Bianco Iceberg, Nero Universo, a new metallic Red and a new metallic Blue.

Piaggio Mp3 Sport – sporting and dynamic

The Sport version of Piaggio Mp3 is distinguished by the “Sport”plate on the rear of the tail and the numerous items with matt grey finish, such as the protection of the end of the exhaust pipe for the Mp3 300, the diamond edge wheel rims the passenger handles and moulding of the central tunnel. The black saddle of the Sport version has a lining in two different materials.
There are three dedicated colour schemes for the Sport version: Nero Opaco Carbonio and the three new colours, Grigio Opaco, Bianco Pastello and Verde Opaco.

A complete range of accessories

The range of accessories for the Mp3 is based on a precise design philosophy: to provide the maximum on-board comfort and maximum functionality in daily use, to make the life of the commuter easier with the Piaggio three-wheel scooter.

The large rear trunk, which can be unhooked rapidly, with 50 litre capacity, can house two full-face helmets. The upper shield is painted the same colour as the vehicle and has a comfortable backrest to make the passenger’s ride more enjoyable. The top box is also available in the 37-litre version.
For daily use and in all environmental conditions, the windshield accessory, in high quality anti-chip material, guarantees optimum protection from the air and weather. A great deal of care is put into aesthetics, with rods with the same finish as other vehicle details.

In addition the leg-covering fabric, an increasingly important accessory for commuters whatever the season and irrespective of the weather conditions, was designed to provide maximum warmth and protection against the rain on the Mp3. The fabric is designed for the vehicle and for perfect safety, and is stable even at high speeds. To guarantee maximum comfort in any weather conditions, a new kit is also available with heated accessories that enhance “all weather” functionality: a heating element to be placed in the leg cover and heated hand grips, managed by a dedicated control unit that provides four temperature levels.

The rider is also protected by a further function of the Piaggio Mp3: thermal and waterproof protection for the hands, the tunnel bag, placed simply behind the leg shield back plate, electronic and mechanical ‘saddle-handlebar’ anti-theft systems and the comfort saddle, which has gel inserts under the lining to provide maximum comfort to the rider and passenger.

The on-board technology is enhanced by the accessories. Piaggio MP3 can be fitted with the Piaggio Multimedia Platform, to enable dialogue between your smartphone and the vehicle. Piaggio Multimedia Platform is able to manage a huge amount of information relating to the vehicle, useful for the journey.
New. Tom Tom Vio Piaggio Special Edition: the first GPS navigation device designed by Tom Tom for scooters is now available in an exclusive and special edition specifically developed for Piaggio Group and customized in terms of packaging, cover and splash screen.

Another technological exclusive is the new Piaggio Sound System (PSS), developed by the Piaggio Innovation Research Center, that allows you to play back audio from a source connected via Bluetooth, without loudspeakers, directly by the vehicle itself.

The Mp3 range is accompanied by a range of dedicated, hi-tech design helmets, conceived and designed to provide safety, comfort and maximum protection.
Helmets in the PJ line include interesting technical and stylistic features, with innovative head design and exclusive side fastening and a large, protective visor.

The breathable interior fittings can be removed and washed. The PJ range of helmets has two configurations: PJ with dual visor (normal and sunscreen) and PJ1 with recessed sunscreen visor.
