Bart Madson Managing Editor Motorcycleusa.com reported, The City differentiates itself from the existing MP3 line (250, 400 and 500 available in the U.S.) by its trimmer looks and dimensions. The City appears more slender with its fairing terminating at the upper steering assembly. The headlights have also moved up into the upper section, along with the integrated turn signals. Wheelbase pinches down to 56.9 inches (MP3 250 wheelbase is 58.6 inches, the larger versions even longer), with Piaggio claiming the new dimensions make the City a more nimble urban commuter. The overall length of the scoot drops as well, four inches shorter than the existing 250. 2011-Piaggio-MP3-Yourban.jpg2011 Piaggio Scooters Picture

The distinctive MP3 two-wheeled front end returns, though the City will source 13-inch wheels (the remaining line makes use of 12-inch hoops up front). Dual 240mm disc brakes with dual-piston calipers tuck away on the interior of the front wheels, while a 220mm rear rotor is clamped by a two-piston floating caliper.
The MP3 City 300 claims a 451-pound curb weight and will be available in the U.S. at the end of 2011. MSRP is to be determined, with the current MP3 250 $7199 and the MP3 400 $8699.
