25 August, 2015 - Piaggio: Orange Is The New Black
Piaggio Vietnam Orange New Black

#Piaggio #Vietnam - Looking at what is rolling out of Piaggio's scooter factory in Vietnam, you'd say that all new motorcycles are going to be orange, because as we all know, orange is the new black.


18 August, 2015 - Ad: Piaggio MP3 - Tilting Doll
Ad Piaggio Tilting Doll
Piaggio logo
#Piaggio #MP3 #Advertisement - Funny. You know Piaggio's MP3 scooter, the three wheel scooter that can tilt because the front wheels have independent suspensions? You can ride over a sidewalk with only one wheel, and still not fall.

Obviously Piaggio also thought it's a pretty cool system, so they brought out this print advertisement back in 2010. It's kind of funny, since it does look like the MP3 motorcycle riders are a bit like titling dolls.

Ape Romeo
Italy flag
There are cities in the world that can not accommodate food trucks as we see in some major cities (and movies). But they can handle Piaggio Apes, who have been designed to navigate the small and narrow streets of cities like Rome. There is even a Michelin-starred chef running one of these street food motorcycles. Hungry? You will be when you see their photos.

#Piaggio #Electric #Scooter - Piaggio, an enormous motorcycle conglomerate which includes brands like Aprilia, Moto Guzzi and Vespa, is known to be innovative. Just look at their MP3 three wheel scooter. Many manufacturers are now copying the innovative designs from the Italian company.

Now Piaggio have released a prototype, more a design/concept of an electric scooters that looks like a winner. Called PAM (Personal Advanced Mobility), the electric scooter is partially enclosed (like the doomed BMW C1), photovoltaic solar panels, a Heads Up Display, a GPS and even airbags...........

22 January, 2013 - Ad: Piaggio MP3 and Lions
Piaggio MP3 Lion
Piaggio logo
I don't know about you, but there's no way in hell I'll be riding a Piaggio MP3 scooter, or even a super fast motorcycle alongside any lions. So I'm a bit amazed at this advertisement from Piaggio. With a copy line that says "So stable, you'll think it's a car", just because the scooter is more stable than traditional 2 wheelers, doesn't mean that it's safer?


2 August, 2012 - iPhone Connected Piaggio Scooters
Piaggio PMP/iPhone
Piaggio logo
Piaggio released an optional kit for their X10 series of scooters that allows you to hook up your iPhone (and shortly Android) smartphone to your scooter, which will then tell you, without wires, all your telemetric data, like speed, fuel consumption, battery, when to replace your tires, tire pressure and if you have a GPS/Navigation unit app installed, where to go to get fuel, since it knows when you are running out.

With a large number of extra functions, like your owner manual, downloadable telemetric data and others, you'll not need the old fashion onboard dashboard.

We might even find the Piaggio PMP (Piaggio Multimedia Platform) on Aprilia, Moto Guzzi and Vespa models in the near future. How cool is that?

The Chinese manufacturers are known to rip-off copies of almost anything under the sun, and fake motorcycles are the norm there. But they are becoming more and more brazen about their rip-offs, so much so that they actually tried to market their fake Piaggio MP3 scooters at Eicma.
