We test ride Kymco’s new for the U.S MyRoad 700i. Find out more in the 2014 Kymco MyRoad 700i First Ride review.
- The MyRoad 700i’s ABS-equipped brakes are strong and very friendly to operate. We love that the brakes aren’t linked front to back, or vice versa.
- The MyRoad 700i is a capable tourer but needs additional refinement or a substantial price reduction to be a true contender in the class.
- The 2014 Kymco MyRoad 700i retails at $9699.
- The MyRoad 700i has a comfy saddle and a fair amount of storage beneath the seat.
- Instrumentation is functional however its appearance is dated and not at the level we’d expect based on the MyRoad’s price tag of nearly 10 grand.
- Kymco is importing its top-of-the-line MyRoad 700i scooter ($9699) into the U.S. for ’14.
- The cockpit is cramped for a taller rider with our six-foot tall tester complaining that the handlebar would occasionally touch his knees.
- Due to its sheer size and weight the Kymco’s handling is awkward at parking lot speeds. But the faster you go the easier it is to ride though it did have a tendency to wander around the road slightly.
- The MyRoad 700i offers plenty of ground clearance and can be ridden briskly with no hard parts touching down against pavement.
- The MyRoad 700i’s electronic suspension was ineffective with no noticeable ride quality change in any of the three modes.
