    Piaggio MP3 550's for SPD

    Springfield MA has a new fleet of Piaggio MP3 500 scooters for the police department.

    I can't manage to get the video to embed, but here's a link:

    It is not a bad idea to use the MP3 for city patrol, lots of good points. What I don't understand is why The police department would pick a sleek black cutting edge scooter and pick this bunch of over weight patrolmen to ride them. They looked like those typical porky, beer guzzling Harley posers you see in the movies. Don't they have standards anymore? This bunch should be on foot patrols for thier own good.
    No offence to the larger ST riders, the ST will hanlde more than 400lbs.

    I couldn't get the video to embed either. Those scoots look great for that application.. Here is a more direct link:

    I'd guess they won't be giving out any speeding tickets.
