FrontRunners: Triple Play

  • The Editors

The three-wheeled Piaggio MP3 400 (www.piaggio.com) might look odd, but you will appreciate its design on a wet or twisty road. The two 12-inch front wheels can tilt 40 degrees, providing a stronger grip than that of a conventional, single front wheel. And, according to the company, on slippery surfaces the bike requires up to 24 percent less braking distance than does its two-wheel counterparts. The scooter, which is priced at $8,700, will be available in the United States beginning in January.
