ABS and ASR
The ABS anti-lock system uses a Continental three-channel control unit which enables all three wheels to be individually managed by modulating the braking force. The ASR traction control regulates the torque of the driving wheel where it detects any skidding or slippage.
The practical details
The underseat compartment of the Piaggio MP3 Business 300 ABS-ASR is fitted with a courtesy light and mat and easily holds two full-face helmets. It can be opened from a distance by means of a remote control which also serves as a Bike Finder if you are having trouble locating your bike in a crowded parking lot. Above the instrument panel (an analogue-digital mix) is a three-section compartment complete with USB socket.
