Hello to all
I'm new to the forum so g'day from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. In Oz, there doesn't seem to be a forum with a dedicated MP3/Fuoco section so I though I would join up and lurk for a bit
FYI I own a Vespa ET4 150cc (no performance mods).
I do have a question though relating to the MP3 250cc specifically. Has anyone done performance modification to this type yet? That is, have you put on a multi-var or a new up-gear kit. Are these kits even available yet for the MP3 engine types?
Here in Queensland, you can ride up to a 250cc bike on your basic motorcycle licence. That, accompanied with the savings on insurance, rego, fuel economy that come with 250cc models makes me want to get the 250cc version.
I have heard through reading the many excellent post on the forum that the 250cc suffers a bit from take off power but, once it is off an running, performs very well around the city and can do highway speeds (is 110km/h something you would consider doing on a 250 - with a bit left over for overtaking?).
Surely a performance mod such as a multi-var could give you awesome acceleration and better top speed if you get the variator weights right.
What do you all think about this?
Thanks for your help.
