Since we do not have that many MP3s here in USA it is not easy to find accessories for them. I've been checking on the Internet and I guess the only solution is to have a friend or relative that lives in Europe (Italy would be ideal), and ask that person to buy it for you and ship it to USA.

I have a few items on my list for my 2016 MP3ie 500 Sport:

Racing foot-pedals kit.

Multimedia & GPS support kit.

Smartphone support.

Saddle-handlebar top mechanical anti-theft device.

Any idea where to find these here in USA?

Racing foot-pedals kit. never heard of one, no foot pedals on a mp3

Multimedia & GPS support kit. waste of money from posts I have read.

Smartphone support. RAM Mount most likes makes a better one

Saddle-handlebar top mechanical anti-theft device. If you are talking about the lock that goes from the seat bolts to the handle bars. Scootershopco.com in NC sells them.

Any idea where to find these here in USA? I get most of my parts for the EU or UK via post.

Thanks a lot for your tips about these accessories and where to find them.

The racing foot pedals kit is a set of aluminum plates that are in replacement of the rubber mats, and come with footrests; this is an original Piaggio accessory.

I heard the same about the Multimedia & GPS support kit so I removed it from my list.

I also added a RAM mount and it is doing the job perfectly.

For the anti-theft device, I got a "U" shaped heavy-duty lock that goes on the front wheel.

I was at a rally this weekend and I saw an "American Vespa Club" sticker on a couple of the Vespas. Where can I find one?

Thanks again.

Hello loosenut. If the Footpedals are in the Piaggio Accessories list. Where did you find them and are you sure they're not for a specific model other than the MP3?

Hello old as dirt. I have a set that I bought about 2 or 3 years ago for my old Mp3. I will try to post a couple of Pics of them for all of our fellow Impies and Impetts. I am not sure anymore, but I believe that I got them over Amazon.

This is taken from the Piaggio brochure:

MP3 RACING FOOT-PEDALS KIT 605473M
The non-slip aluminum racing foot-pedals lend the vehicle
a sporting feel.

Foot pedals?

Daft Italian translation. Those are just diamond-plate foot-rests or floorboards.

No pedals in sight!

yeah Jim is spot on. you can order those aluminum floorboards for the older 2008-2010 's and paint them yourself or powder coat them or truck bed liner spray them.

They were standard now they are rubber matts.

If you can wait three weeks or so, we get pretty much everything in the European accessory catalogs. Right now Piaggio is having their big "get rid of as much of this stuff as possible before we close for Feragosto, sale," and they've got some great deals on some accessories, and in general we can get the parts for about two thirds or less of what the US dealers sell it for. Big, bulky things like the comfort windshield or some of the body panels can get a little pricey to ship, but we've got a guy at our dealership in Italy who is great at putting a lot of things in a little box.
