The three-wheeled scooters in our market cThey began timidly, with a daring Piaggio as a forward in a field until 15 years ago still unexplored and now they are already one more vehicle in the usual urban traffic. Halfway between the advantages of a scooter and some of the qualities of the car, the three wheels have conquered a personal space and the pioneering brands are joining them more and more, convinced of this formula.

Its appeal is undeniable, especially for those who are tired of dealing with impossible traffic they watched with envious eyes as the two-wheelers dodge with insulting agility the traps of the daily traffic jam. In the same way, there are not a few who were considering a lighter medium but they show certain reluctance when it comes to maintaining balance on only two wheels, especially to roll on broken, humid or low-confidence pavements.

The three-wheeled scooters were a before and after to all those wishes and doubts. Its structure took some of the advantages of the automobile, better stability on three points of contact with the asphalt, greater comfort and a plus of safety when braking thanks to its greater potential. From the two wheels it adopted its reduced volume, its agility and maneuverability and its relative ease of parking, the door-to-door classic.

Piaggio was the first who dared to raise this little revolution of the three wheels and then Peugeot and Yamaha followed with very different styles but always looking for the same goal. Later Qooder joined with its own three-wheeled version which was followed by what is still to this day a unique example, the 4-wheel Qooder; a scooter that follows the same theory but goes one step further and adds a rear axle that also has two wheels. And now, Kymco is also pointing in the same direction with its announced CV3, which will be the most powerful of the entire offer once it is marketed.

As soon as we pay attention we will see that although the offer is similar in approach, each of the brands is committed to a final solution with a very marked personality and obvious differences in philosophy.

While Piaggio offers a highly diversified product in displacement and finishesIt is probably the most classic brand, it was the first to arrive and it shows in its designs that have not varied too much from the beginning. Peugeot bet on a more refined and luxurious style and image, following the design trail of its 4-wheelers, while Yamaha aimed straight at lighter vehicles with a sporty twist. Qooder looked for a more versatile image from the beginning, with a more off-road approach, with bulky designs that could move on asphalt and dirt and finally Kymco has shown its intentions with a triscooter that takes elements from its maxi AK 550 and despite his sporty style he does not renounce his I use as a crossover.

In the end, these types of vehicles are scooters of a more or less conventional concept. that escape the norm due to the adoption of double front trains based on similar solutions but customized by the brands and adapted to their particular way of understanding this new segment.

These systems They increase the stability of the set and its front aplomb, although they slightly reduce its agility and slow down turns or changes of support, but in general there are more advantages than disadvantages.

In addition to being more voluminous, they protect the driver better, the ergonomics are much better resolved and the seats are wide, soft and have lumbar backrests in almost all cases. And in terms of their load capacity it is usually quite good while they have the latest safety technology, ABS, traction control …

Functional and practical as well as safe and luxuriously equipped, It is not surprising that thanks to all these arguments, many motorists consider the change to three-wheeled scooters.

Three better than two and so much better than four!
