Piaggio Scoots Off-Road


Piaggio has launched the Gilera Fuocu 500ie, a three-wheeled unit that's based on the previously released Piaggio MP3. The MP3 is available in the United States; the Fuocu 500ie is available only in Europe at the present time.

The three-wheeled concept is intriguing and offers an exciting ride, according to those who have tested the vehicle. A few of the Fuocu's uses outlined in the press materials we received from the manufacturer were a bit surprising: Piaggio says the Fuocu "takes all kinds of terrain in its stride." The materials show the vehicle traveling along rock-strewn Alpine passes.
