Leafy suburb residents will no doubt be delighted to hear that music fans can now turn their scooters into a mobile sound system, with a unique new accessory from Piaggio.

Piaggio’s Sound System (PSS) turns the body parts of the scooter into a loud-speaker, allowing riders to listen to their favourite songs without having to install messy and complicated wiring, or lose storage space to speakers.


The unique system consists of a Digital Amplifier, powered by the scooter’s battery; a Bluetooth receiver, which picks up the music from the user’s smartphone; and two ‘Exciters’, which turn the plastic body panels into a soundboard, pumping out more than 100db.

PSS is fully controlled from the user’s smartphone. To start playing, simply synchronise the ‘phone with the PSS once and it will automatically connect every time the ignition is switched on.

PSS is currently available for the 2014 Piaggio Mp3, and the 2013/14 Vespa 946. A complete system costs £413.98, including a model-specific installation kit.
