Although on paper the Piaggio MP3Piaggio Mp3 Hybrid Scooter scooter should be an ideal motorcycle for use by emergency crews, like medical first responders, it apparently is not. At least not in Victoria, Australia. You would have thought that having three wheels would make the vehicle more stable, therefore better suited for medical emergencies.

But after a mishap with the MP3 brakes failing, resulting in a crash, and furthermore learning that the MP3 can't really take curbs, nor can it go off-road (like bike trails), plus the scoot runs out of battery charge too rapidly, and finally it needs to go at a snail pace to clear speed bumps, the Ambulance Association is turning to BMW motorcycles.

Mr McGhie, Secretary General of Ambulance Employees Association of Victoria, said the BMW motorcycles had “a better track record”. “I believe the BMW bikes have been used by other ambulance services or the police force,” he said. “They are a bigger bike and a more powerful bike.”

So it looks like BMW will score another sale of their bikes.
