Don't see any posts about the new MP3 530. I have been seeing youtube videos, anyone else have any info?
Is it a real thing?

This is the first mention of Cruise Control I've seen. Great addition to this highway capable scooter.
Thanks for sharing.

It is a real thing. Coming to Europe first this fall, US probably a year later as a 2024 model.

It is a evolution (aka another facelift) not a complete redo. Engine slightly bigger (essentially a stroker motor of the current Master 493), slighty torquier but no more powerful.

The usual electronic doodads that are becoming the norm or have been on bikes for a while like keyless ignition, LED headlights, and the like. Reliability and Italy, only time will tell although history has proven that the Japanese are not lying awake in their beds at night.

The biggest issue I foresee is the pricetag. 13K Euro/14K US is a huge increase from the current one whilst knocking on the door of real maxiscoots like the Yamaha T-Max and more expensive than the Honda Forza750 which is a twin and has a real automatic DCT gearbox.

It'll wind up being the same price in the US - with the strange MSRP + everything else.

I still can't get used to buying something with a tag of $9 and having to pay $10 at the till.
