Nice review, even if MP3 have been in the States for quite a while now. I am interested to see what may happen next for this formidable scooter.

Looks like they updated the engine a bit. Nice review.

Has Piaggio given any indication the MP3 is coming back to the US?

They're one of the top selling scoots... in France.

There have been a few reports of dealers saying they expect the MP3 CITY (Yourban) to ship sometime in 2014 I have seen no evidence yet from Piaggio that backs that up. They did file for a trademark in the US but that doesn't mean they are going to market here.

Any dealers want to chime in?

I'm wondering where they got that 100 MPH figure. Having two spark plugs doesn't do it. Mine has two spark plugs.

Right now your guess is as good as mine.

The biggest engine offered by Piaggio right now is the one in the BV350.
Piaggio needs a 500, either in the form of the X10 or the MP3 500 (LT).
It seems that for now, Piaggio is not putting the BV engine in the MP3 Yourban (City) and that is too bad because that would make an incredible scoot.

We can only hope that the MP3 will come back....

Maybe the US reintroduction will be tied to putting the 350 engine in the Yourban (City). That would be consistent with what Piaggio has done with the rest of their US line-up. If that were so, it looks like we would have at least a year to wait.
