The Piaggio MP3 250 is the smallest scooter in the MP3 lineup. Like its bigger siblings the MP3 250 has a three wheels configuration with two wheels up front and one at the rear. The front wheels are combined with an electro-hydraulic tilt system which allows each of them to act independently based on how much the scooter leans, which result in higher levels of grip and a decreased braking distance.

The scooter is powered by a four-stroke, four-valve liquid-cooled engine from the Aprillia Scarabeo 250 i.e which meets the Euro3 emission standards. The company says that its four stroke engine delivers a fuel economy of approximately 4.3L per 100 km.

The MP3 250 sits on 12 inch front and 14 inch rear wheels which are combined with 240 mm stainless steel disc brakes.
