A sidecar would take away all the advantages of the MP3.
If you want a sidecar why not use the Piaggio X9 500?

well a tilting sidecar could conceivably be designed.
The cost would certainly sky-rocket... but DANG! how cool would an MP3 with a tilting sidecar be!

Just talked to PM Tuning rep for North America. He indicated that PM Tuning (in UK) now has an MP3 for which they are designing a rear bracket that can be used with their existing exhaust for the GTS250.

No modifications to fuel injection are required, just mount and go. Claim is a slightly louder pipe with about 1.8 horsepower gain.

So, which pipe, LeoVinci or PM, is the system of choice for the 250ie engine shared by both, the Vespa GTS and Piaggio MP3? LeoVinci is located in Richmond, CA, just 20 miles from my house!

You must love the internet. it even provides sidecars that would work on an MP3.

The only reason I would consider a side car is if I wanted to take my 7 mth old Bull Terrier puppy with me on a ride. He would LOVE it!
