Piaggio MP3 500 HPE three-wheeled scooter recalled over brakes issue

Piaggio has announced a recall of its MP3 500 HPE scooter in the US market. The company added that all the units sold under the model year 2020 and 2021 have been affected under the latest recall. As per the company, the affected units have issues related to the brakes that don't function properly due to excessive play in the brake levers. This results in less efficient braking when the scooter rests for longer periods. Needless to say, faulty brakes could cause a safety issue for riders.
