Italian duo test revolutionary new scooter

Simone Corsi and Mattia Pasini have both taken a test-ride on the new three-wheel scooter presented by Piaggio at the Bologna Motorshow this week. The two World Championship riders, who will both ride in the 125 class last year, got to grips with the new prototype machine that features two front wheels for increased stability.

The front axle has a special system which means it works in the same way as a normal two-wheel bike. Thus the two front wheels both incline when the scooter takes a corner and riders do not therefore need any specific training to use the machine.

For the time being Piaggio have presented two single cylinder versions of the prototype, a 250cc model and a 500cc model. Both Corsi and Pasini were left very impressed with the scooter and enjoyed their opportunity to test it out.
