The 300 i.e. is powered by a liquid-cooled, 278cc, sohc, four-valve, fuel-injected Single, which makes a claimed 23 horsepower and 17.3 foot-pounds of peak torque. This unit is teamed to an effective CVT transmission, featuring a crisply engaging automatic (centrifugal) clutch that extracts the best from the willing Single. Although the Yourban shed a meaningful amount of weight, it still tips the scale at 453 pounds, but the combination of its lighter weight and quicker steering response proved to be a lot of fun on the wet French roads. The MP3 is very quick off the line and rapidly progresses to 60 or 70 mph, easily ahead of traffic.
