Allowed in Singapore?

Postby Strong Eagle » Fri, 26 Jul 2013 1:46 am

Seems like it would be a cheap solution to incredibly high COE's and allow an air conditioned ride to work.

I would expect something like this to be a better candidate to let it in with COE substantially reduced:

Or perhaps this...

Top Gear - Peel P50

Or even this...

Top Gear - Jeremy Clarkson's P45

Anything that over 2 wheels would classified as car for them I would think.

I rang them (LTA) before enquiry about the Renault Twizy. Obviously they either wouldn't or dont have time to entertain me for an answer.

Otherwise I would of import a Twizy meself from the UK. Cheap though, cost just £8k (S$16k). A little bit more protection than a bike and dont mess up your hair. And you will be the centre of attention of whole Singapore.

No of wheels is not a factor - see Piaggio MP3 or similar for example, many of them around. The size/weight could be.

Does it weigh more than a full dress hog?

found this from Piaggio's website - MP3 Touring
Piaggio MP3 LT is the first ever scooter above 125cc that can be legally ridden with a normal car license. (Not applicable in Singapore.)

"Not applicable in Singapore" - does this mean I need a motorcycle license to ride this in Singapore?

Correct. You still need a Motorcycle license for the MP3. Singapore still considers is as a motorcycle. Trikes are considered motorcycles as well but the only trikes allowed, I believe, are those specifically designed for the handicapped rider.
