I just joined because I traded for a 2009 PIAGGIO MP3 400. I have MS and needed to be on 3 wheels for Safety. The Scoot seems excellent so far, only owning for about a month. Being totally Novice about the Piaggio I hope there are some foiks that can inform me about questions I have that I am trying to figure out answers.

Can anyone tell me where to buy online Key blanks With and Without the remote? I have a bad habit of losing keys and I only have 1 Key. I really appreciate a legitimate place on the Net to buy keys.
Thanks tencents48

Thank you for the reply - I will contact a dealership to see if they can make me keys. I appreciate your reply.

A Fiat dealer may be able to physically cut a matching key but the Piaggio's have a chipped security key that needs to be programmed to match the ECU. Otherwise it will turn the lock but not start.

If you don't have a Piaggio/Vespa shop near you, (there are several about an hour from you near Chicago), then AF1racing.com in Texas or Scooterwest.com in San Diego can clone your existing key if you send it to them.

Wait, is there such thing for MIU? I thought that's for IAW. And mp3s recognize as master key only their own brown one.

Although the MP3 has 3 wheels but it is like a 2 wheeler when riding, it leans and you need to balance, you can not ride it like a car (as some people may think), so I don't think that it would be a big help you in your situation.
