2010 KYMCO Scooter First Rides Photo Gallery
A score of scooters and 1.5 days on the prestigious Biltmore Estate, still not enough time to sample the robust 2010 KYMCO scooter line.
See photos of the 2010 Kymco scooter lineup as we test them on the Asheville, North Carolina Biltmore Estate in the 2010 KYMCO Scooter First Rides photo gallery.
The KYMCO Downtown 300i is a 2011 model that will appear in the second quarter of 2010.
Overall a comfortable riding position, the Downtown doesn't allow roomy feet forward rests for taller riders.
The KYMCO Downtown delivers the performance much closer to the 500Ri than the smaller 250, thanks to its lighter weight and all-new 4-valve 299cc Single.
Storming up the Blue Ridge Parkway aboard the Xciting 500Ri is a ride we won't soon forget.
Out of the 150-250 KYMCO class, the Yager 200GTi was the best standout, ample performance and comfy ergos.
2010 Kymco Super 8 150, a sub-$3000 MSRP and acceptable performance from its air-cooled 149cc mill.
The KYMCO People 150, another standout in the mid-size crowd and a good mount for city commutes.
Out of the small 50cc crew, the new 2010 Like 50 stood out to us with its styling and buzzy pop from the 2-stroke engine.
The cone course set up in the Biltmore Estate parking lot let riders sample the various wheel sizes and how they affect scooter handling.
People 50 has a small motor but the large wheels make it an interesting ride.
The Kymco Super 8 150 handles like a smaller scooter but the 150 motor is far more accommodating on the street.
The Kymco People 250 is an interesting ride, we only wish we'd had more time to put it through the paces.
The Like 200i looks good, but the road performance is lacking for 200.
The Kymco Xciting 250Ri shares the same chassis as the 500, but sports a 249cc motor.
The Kymco Super 8 2T looks like its 4-stroke kin, but enjoys 2-stroke power.
