Spinnin the dial I lucked out and got to see the Piaggio factory building Mp3s today. It was on the Sci. channel titled " How do they". Very impressive looking , to be expected from such a massive company. I worked for Whirlpool building dryers in Ohio , which was pretty nice but no comparison to this . Blue and yellow were their colors , just like the Mv Agusta factory. Very well done vid. hope you all can see. Gotta go break some bulbs.

I saw the subject and thought it was going to be something about how pop music is "created"...

Thanks for sharing!

14perry -

That is a much better video than the old one from the Sci channel. It's odd though that the camera focuses on a cameraman for much of the first half of it.

This says posted Sept 2013 and those are Mp3-300s coming off the line so very new. Thanks for posting this.

Your welcome!

I just wish they were MP3-350's with USA on the shipping label.

Yes I know such a scoot does not exist, but hell I can dream!

They may not exist yet, but they should - and surely they eventually will.

Mp3 assembly line
Thanks for posting 14 perry,
Pure Italian beauty in motion. If your into this kind of stuff, check out the new 946 Vespa high tech assembly line , on YOutube. The reason its called 946 I think vespa started in 1946, .The 946 has ABS and Traction Control. And an ingenious spring that goes from the rear forward under the plastic. with handstiched leather grips. I keep looking for one crusing in my town.
