I just remembered the MP3, uh...trike. Looking on the web, I can't tell if the glossy "press releases" that say it's here are saying it's here. Also, can't get off the Paris this Autumn to scooterwatch and see for myself.

Can anybody tell me it they're on the roads yet?

They aren't yet on US roads. The dealers and US press have not even yet tried it out, nor do I believe any of them have seen it in person yet. I'll be among the first Americans to see it and ride it.

Saw this article a while back through Scooter Scoop through an Italian site.

These pics make me want one something fierce!

Well, it looks awesome on the pics. Hopefully the local dealer will have one (at least) when they begin to ship. If it doesn't happen somewhere else first, we will be sure to post pics.

But, has anybody seen one on the road anywhere? I.e., in Europe? Or is this just press release pressure build-up by Piaggio?

The first truly interesting new wheeled vehicle since the Art Deco era...I want one too.

Don't think I have not thought about it! I think she could at that, Beale.
