Hello fellow Impies. I have a question that maybe somebody could help me with. My Matilda is 6 years old now. About two or three weeks ago I went to the Piaggio Dealer in Stuttgart Germany and about updates for my Scooter. The Mechanic that there are no more updates for a 2013 MP3 500 Sport LT. Is this true or was he trying to sale me a new Scooter? Your imput would be highly appriciated. Thanks a Mill guys.

What sort of update are you looking for?
Is the scooter running well, or is there a problem?
I have a 2008, it's running fine, so, well, I personally don't care if there is an update or no.

Hello Sully. I asked the Mechanic if I might need an update because of the bad fuel consumption I was getting and he told me that there are no more updates for the Scooter at all. That's how I interpreted what he said at least.

I'm certainly no expert in these matters, but IMO

1. The ECU in your MP3 is pretty old school, and may not be susceptible to the newer type of flash updating procedure that is available for more modern bikes/scoots.
2. Piaggio is no longer interested in developing the software for scoots of that age.

I have a 2007 Gilera Fuoco and it hasn't had any updates for more than 10 years, and still goes great.

Just my 2 cents worth.
