This scooter looks like a lot of fun. I don't know how it performs next to riding a 2 wheeler but it just might solve a problem for those afraid of falling over.

What's your take on this scooter?

3-wheel scooter for the young and hip (http://money.cnn.com/2006/09/22/autos/piaggio_scooter/index.htm?postversion=2006092616) - The three-wheel scooter isn't cheap, even for a high-end scooter. When it's released in the United States in the first quarter of 2007, it will be, by a slim margin, Piaggio's most expensive bike with a price of about $7,000.

Piaggio also sells the well-known Vespa line of scooters. Vespas retain the classic Italian scooter styling while Piaggio bikes aim for a more modern look.

"The MP3 is a flagship product for Piaggio," said Mike Kull, the company's vice-president for marketing in the United States.

With its unusual design, the bike will appeal to those interested in riding the latest technology, he said.

It will also likely appeal to novice riders worried about tumbling off a regular two-wheeled scooter. While the bike can still tip over, it is more stable in turns than a regular two-wheel scooter, especially at low speeds.
