Hi people,

First post from me here;

I am strongly considering buying a mp3 LT; 250 or 400, not sure yet, leaning to the 400 for now.

The expected fuel consumption it not clear to me yet. Can someone give me an idea of the difference between the 250 /400 regarding that?

Also, an aspect that I do not like is the poor choice of colours available to me. (Belgium)

I can pick between, dark blue, gray and black. That are not colours that get me excited.

Does anyone know of there is a company's that sell mp3 compatible parts to change (part of) the colour of the body? Or maybe stickers made to for an mp3 ... that can give some life to an mp3.

Thanks,
Walter

Welcome!

1. Get the 400. Fuel consumption difference to a 250 has to be insignificant next to performance gains. And 400 > 250.

2. Remove the body panels and have them painted whatever color your little heart desires. Except puce. Then reinstall them. And post some pictures of it here.

3. Have fun with it!!

Walter, do you currently ride a PTW (Powered Two/Three Wheeler) of any sort? If so and your car licence allows it, get the 400. If not, ride a 125 two-wheeler first. If you want to learn how to survive that is.

Honest!
