First of all, Happy Holidays to everyone in MV land, and beyond.
I just re-read Bryces reviews in Scooter World Magazine, and I have some questions about the scooter, er...Transportational Device we'll refer to as: the MP3.
Anyone that has evaluated (hands-on) the MP3, please clarify or offer your take on the following, as I'm more intrigued than ever with this unusual machine.
1) Is the suspension lock feature useful for anything but at the stoplight to avoid putting your italian loafers onto the pavement?
2) Bryce mentions scraped center stands aplenty on the test fleet. The propensity for this to happen seems a bit dodgy, is the center stand really a necessity on this machine? Does the susp. lock do the same thing with parking brake? Could the stand be removed without ill effect?
3) In one of the photos in the article, the lean angle looks steep enough that the rider appears to be over the CG. Could that unit still go over given the right set of circmstances? Or does the extra weight of the MP3 offset that?
4) Will my local shop be offering test rides? DR?
Ho, Ho, Ho ! Santa rides a RED GTS the other 364 days a year!
