Breaking It Down

PRECISION ON WHEELS

THE MGP3O

The ‘Made to Grab Podiums’ aka MGP3O was a racing prodigy. Developed in a record time of less than six months – from drawing board to track – it turned heads since its debut in the 2013 World Championship.

Its stunning curves maximised aerodynamics. Beneath its taut, yet nimble chassis was a power-packed engine. And there rested not one slack bone in its body.

ENGINE

A single-cylinder 249cc DOHC four-stroke, finger follower valve train; drum throttle body with double fuel injector engine enabled the MGP3O to accelerate from 0-100 kph in just 3 seconds – reaching staggering speeds of over 240 kph.

Every enhancement since its debut guaranteed greater power delivery, acceleration and top speed. And podiums!

CHASSIS

Moto3 bikes are the smallest Grand Prix racers. But their slender tyres and lightweight bodies (approx. 81kg) make them the fastest at the apex of a corner.

The MGP3O chassis was not only robust, but communicative. It gave the rider a feel of the suspension and tyres. At the same time, it was rigid enough for precise steering at high-speed corners, and quick change of direction.
