ABS and ASR
The ABS anti-lock system uses a Continental three-channel control unit which enables all three wheels to be individually managed by modulating the braking force. The ASR traction control regulates the torque of the driving wheel where it detects any skidding or slippage.
The practical details
The underseat compartment of the Piaggio MP3 Business 300 ABS-ASR is fitted with a courtesy light and mat and easily holds two full-face helmets. It can be opened from a distance by means of a remote control which also serves as a Bike Finder if you are having trouble locating your bike in a crowded parking lot. Above the instrument panel (an analogue-digital mix) is a three-section compartment complete with USB socket.
The front suspension of the Piaggio MP3 Business 300 ABS-ASR is fitted with two independent tilting front wheels with articulated quadrilateral suspension. The extra-wide front wheel track and the third brake pedal command mean this scooter falls under the rules governing tricycles and can therefore be driven with a standard B car licence.
If you are stationary at traffic lights, the front suspension blocking mechanism (activated via a button) of the Piaggio MP3 Business 300 keeps you balanced so you don’t need to rest your feet on the ground to stay upright. When you’re ready to move off, simply accelerate. Parking becomes so much simpler as you no longer need to use the stand and if you’re driving on a slope and need to stop, you also have the parking brake in the rear shield.
Developed as a viable alternative to a car, the Piaggio MP3 Business 30 ABS-ASR ensures a comfortable ride for both pilot and passenger: the windshield offers excellent protection and with two lumbar supports, the driving position is supremely relaxing. The pillion passenger will also travel in comfort and safety thanks to the retractable foot rests and sturdy lateral grip handles.
The Piaggio MP Business 300 ABS-ASR sits comfortably alongside the Sport version with several shared features such as the unrivalled practicality and safety which distinguish the Italian three-wheel category (requiring only a standard B licence). The Business version, elegant and city-friendly, is characterised by a dedicated plate on the rear part of the tail and prestige details such as the black seat with dual lining and the glossy grey finish of the wheel rims and passenger grab handles. The elegance of the MP3 Business is highlighted by the four chrome-plated versions available: white (Bianco Iceberg), black (Nero Universo), metallic Red (Rosso metallizzato) and metallic Blue (Blu metalizzato). The rigorously tested two independent self-stabilising front wheels and articulated quadrilateral suspension system together with the large tyres deliver outstanding grip and stability. This elegant model is fitted with advanced safety systems (ABS anti-lock and ASR traction control) and a number of additional convenient features including two storage compartments, a protective windshield, front suspension block and Bike Finder.
