PIAGGIO HYBRID TECHNOLOGY
The green soul of technology.
The Piaggio Group has designed a revolutionary new hybrid technology that combines a conventional internal combustion engine with low environmental impact with a zero-emission electric motor. These two souls - one run one electricity, as the ultimate safeguard for the environment, and the other on gasoline, to guarantee autonomy on unusually long journeys - coexist synergistically, for safe, easy, cheap and fun driving.
This revolutionary hybrid drive system, used on the Mp3 Hybrid, is a real concentrate of technology, employing a sophisticated Ride-by-Wire system to electronically control the opening of the combustion engine's throttle body and using lithium-ion batteries to power the electric motor. Furthermore, the use of plug-in technology not only offers the convenient possibility of charging from the household mains, but also reduces fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions by more than 50%.
PIAGGIO MULTIMEDIA PLATFORM
The innovative Piaggio Multimedia Platform (PMP) is based on BlueDash technology, which, by connecting the vehicle to the iPhone, provides the rider with a sophisticated and multi-functional on-board computer.
The wireless connection enables a set of fundamental performance indicators to be displayed on the smartphone's touch screen, so that the rider can keep a vigil eye on various vehicle parameters.
Thus, information concerning speed, RPM, power output, torque, lean angle, longitudinal acceleration, instant and average fuel consumption, average speed and battery voltage is always available to the rider.
Piaggio's latest generation 3-valve engines improve performance while reducing fuel consumption and pollutant emissions. This innovative air-cooled 4-stroke single-cylinder engine, with a 3-valve (one exhaust and two intake) single overhead camshaft and electronic fuel injection, was designed and built at the Piaggio Pontedera plant, one of the most advanced R&D centres in the world.
Performance, quietness, smoothness and fluidity of movement are all improved. The result? Modern, environmentally-friendly mobility, and unparalleled driving pleasure.
