    Equipped with a new tyre pressure monitoring system called TPM.

    Double front led headlight

    Large underseat storage can easily hold two helmets.

    Commercialisation is predicted for spring 2009, pricing is not yet available.

    I just checked their entire 2009 lineup. Nice stuff and they are offering some Vespa look alikes that should give the Piaggio folks fits.

    Tyre Size

    Front 120/80-14
    Rear 150/70-13

    Just checked for quality tires for the Kymco (I'm a SC 250 owner, I know how annoying it can be to own a scooter with strange tyre sizes)


    seems that 120/80-14 + 150/70-13 are very common - both Pirelli Diablo, Metzeler Feelfree and Metzeler Feelfree Wintec fits.

    He he, yeah - I think the engineers at Piaggio have to take a closer look at their "300 cc" engine again. It simply isn't good enough.

    I don't know how Kymco's USA line up is, but I think this one could be a worthy replacement overseas for Honda SH 300.

    Looking forward to read the first tests.

    How you get on? I like my 200 has big opening, very low - easy to step through.

    I'm not a fan of the maxi-scooter styling at all. It looks too bulky. Like a recliner on wheels. Though, I do have to give Kymco credit for making a windshield that doesn't look dorky.

    I own both a step thru and a maxi.

    You can still step thru a maxi with a little practice as I've learned on my T-Max...I had it figured out on the first try (not 'cus I'm smart...'cus it's quite easy!)
