The beating heart of the MP3 500 is the 492.7 cc, swing-mount motor. This one-lung, liquid-cooled mill produces 40.1 ponies and 33.5 pound-feet of grunt – not bad at all for a scooter, even one as heavy as this. A top speed of 89 mph puts highway driving safely within reach.

The real showpiece of the chassis and suspension is the front end. A parallelogram-type rack allows the front wheels, as well as the rest of the scooter, to bank into the turns a la two-wheeler style. This comes with a number of benefits, not the least of which being the doubled traction up front, independent wheel travel that increases traction on irregular surfaces (such as rain-slicked cobblestone streets) and twice as much "brakeage" up front where you need it the most since 70 percent of your stopping power comes from the front brakes. To put it bluntly; you would have to try real hard to pull a lowsider on this thing!

Suspension travel is sufficient for a scooter (even one that weighs in just under 600 pounds wet) with 3.74 inches up front and 4.25 inches in the rear. The dual rear shocks come with a four-notch preload adjustment to allow for changing cargo loads and/or the weight of a passenger. Dual, 240 mm front brake discs and a single 280 mm rear disc control vehicle speed under the management of the ABS system – a feature that boosts the already-impressive traction and control afforded by the dual front wheels. Front and rear brakes are controlled primarily through hand levers on the bars, but the MP3 comes with a third option; a brake pedal that combines both front and rear under one control.
