There was quite a long thread posted on a few weeks ago. Search mp3 and you should be able to find it. (Looks like they'll be available in Burlington, Ontario in December/January)

Burlington thought they'd be somewhere between $8 and $9 thousand. Exact pricing still has to be set by Vespa Canada.

Well at 7-8K USD from your CAD quote I'd say Piaggio might have to work a bit to get that amount even if it's 400-500cc's.

Well hopefully Vespa Canada (Canadian Scooter Corp) gets their act together and is able to properly support the products it brings in. I am definately interested in the MP3, but until they can get parts in and support their products I will not be buying anymore Vespa/Piaggio products.

I have been waiting 1 1/2 months for a replacement clock for my BV250 that was defective off the floor and my dealer still has not gotten them in. Also ordered a scooter cover for the BV a m,onth ago and that as well is nowhere to be seen. In talking with my dealer, he states that there is a real problem getting anything from them (CSC) at this time and dealers elsewhere are getting very frustrated. Something as simple as oil filters for some of the dealers Aprilias can't be got.

If you can't support a product in a timely manner, I don't care how good a brand Vespa/Piaggio/etc is the product is worthless if you can't fix it.
