MotoUSA’s Associate Editor Justin Dawes takes a spin on the all new 2012 Kymco People GT 300i. Read the full story in our 2012 Kymco People GT 300i First Ride article.
- While the Kymco People GT 300i is a great scooter in the city, it also is comfortable on the freeway thanks to its large wheels and powerful engine.
- The People GT 300i is the newest machine in the Kymco scooter line-up.
- The 3-piston caliper and front disk worked well on the first People GT 300i we tested, but the next machine brakes were spongy. A brake bleed should be on the assembly check list for the People GT.
- The 300cc SOHC single-cylinder engine of the Kymco People GT 300i offers plenty of power and has great throttle response.
- Rear-end of the Kymco People GT 300i contains some stylish LED turn signals that are very bright.
- When dipped into a corner the Kymco People GT 300i handles as well as many smaller motorcycles.
- Cornering on the Kymco People GT 300i is a good time with light handling and a powerful kick from the fuel injected engine.
- The 16-inch wheels coupled with a supple suspension handled cobble stone streets and uneven pavement with ease.
- Scooters such as the Kymco People GT 300i are perfect for exploring smaller backstreets and alleys.
- The Kymco People GT 300i is rock solid at any speed.
- The upright seating position and flat floorboard area makes the Kymco People GT 300i a comfortable ride.
- To compensate for the the smallish under seat storage, the People GT is outfitted with a color-matched top case.
- Scooters are perfectly suited for urban street work, and the Kymco People GT 300i handled the mean streets of Charleston, South Carolina in style.
