I went to my local Piaggio Dealer today and they said that the MP3 500 has stopped production completely and is no longer available anywhere in the world. Can anybody confirm this?

I think they are still being produced. Exported is a different matter though. None to the US. Not sure about Oz.

As far as i can make out from UK magazines all the variants of the MP3 will be the LT versions, wider front track to allow riding with a car licence in certain countries.

Also, there will be a limited run in 2014 of the Fuoco, again LT only.

This is in Europe, not sure of their US or Oz plans.

So to answer question, your dealer is right and wrong. The 500 as we know will no longer be produced, but yes, the 500 will be produced in LT version!!!!!!!
