2009 Piaggio BV500 Scooter Review

2008 Piaggio MP3 500 i.e. Review

The MP3 makes a great ride for “being seen.” This thing turns heads of the young, old, rich and even the impoverished. Save your money, buy a scooter and enjoy your commute to work!

2008 Piaggio MP3 400 Review

If you really want to get some attention on the road, the vehicle you need to be driving is the Piaggio MP3. I guarantee almost nothing will have you answering more questions at stop lights or attracting a bigger crowd in a parking lot.

Two Wheels Good, Three Wheels Better?

Hmmm... Are you skeptical about this three-wheeled thing? Well, here's a nice anecdote that may shed some light as to what Piaggio was thinking when they built this odd-looking conveyance.

2003 Piaggio Beverly 500

Pornography is a matter of geography, or so they say. Turn on Italian TV at prime time and you'll be showered with a myriad of game shows whose only purpose seems to be showing leggy go-go dancers strut their stuff in borderline X-rated fashion.
