These guys are about 65 miles north of me in Snohomish WA. I will send them a PM. Heck, I'd loan them my 2008 650 to do the engineering on.

The cost is $9,995 for the base model PLUS installation fees, and over 12.995 for the "Tilt Lock" PLUS installation fees. I do not think they have a model for the Burgman 650 or 400 yet. http://www.tiltingmotorworks.com/

Yes, I noticed that. I am very interested in a leaning three wheeler, since this age thing is catching up with me. I like trikes, but couldn't handle the non leaning types! Well, guess I could, but wouldn't want to!

It's pretty cool stuff. Although Piaggio has long had the front 2-wheel tilting feature for their MP3's, scooters have had limited appeal here in the USA so sales of the MP3 haven't been so great. However, figure out a way to get that feature on a couple of the best selling motorcycles in the US, and now you're talking!


The self-righting option is especially interesting, and not offered on the MP3.


Jay Leno recently featured them in an episode of Jay Leno's Garage. I don't have the link, but should be pretty easy to find. It seems to be basically a two man shop with the company started by a very enterprising and bright engineer who later brought in a very capable machinist.

I test road a 2016 piaggio MP3 500 a few weeks ago, man they have a VERY comfortable smooth ride, and the tilt/Lean into turns and handle like they were on Rails, they have a system that you press a button when coming to a stop that locks up the tilt/lean so you can have you feet off the ground at a stop and the bike doe NOT fall over, then just gas it and it instantly unlocks the front end and is ready to lean again.

The MP3 500 Leans WAY over! for a good lean angle.

Fit and Finish On the Piaggio is VERY NICE, Luxury even, for the price, I thought they were a great buy.

They come with ABS and Traction control.

I was very Impressed.

But would Not own one because of the weight of it, a little top heavy, and less USA dealer support
