Great Scooter!

By Scott Oct. 20, 2008

I think I was enough to get one of the first Super 8 available in the US—my dealership got of them, and they were all (to overly eager people me apparently :) before they hit the floor. Prior to this, I ridden (not owned) a Sym a Benelli Andretti, a Yamah. a and a Vespa GT. I’ve got about miles on my Super 8 and it is a great

There are a lot of things I like the Super 8 and a few things I don’t. get the bad news out of the way first. The under-seat is not particularly useful.

I have a size small 3/4 with a face shield goes down to the chin, and it not fit in the storage (primarily because is a sizable raised area in the of the storage, effectively removing a bit of its depth). Kymco’s solution for is to put two metal pegs in front of the area, but still under the You can lift the seat, hang helmet outside by putting the retaining ring over the then locking the seat

This seems to work unless it rains, or some thief decides he doesn’t the retaining clip, cuts the and makes off with your The other complaint I have is the rear brake is a drum front is disc), and it seems to the overall stopping performance the Vespa had discs front and and seemed to stop slightly Lastly, the manual is clearly a

In general, you can determine what like comeback it to original mean. But there are a couple that could be more For example, the manual states a oil capacity of .2 liters. There are drain and fill/check bolts in the but if you filled the casing to the check hole, it would be much than .2 liters—closer to .4.

I’ve seen a casing with a bolt hole that you fill up to that hole. But in case I’m left what the right amount of oil is. Is the manual a misprint, or is this a casing you don’t fill all the way up?

Now, to the good stuff. The rides great! It’s got a feel to it, for sure—more like a

The 14 wheels are nice and smooth out the manhole covers, etc. better than the 10 — 12 you find on most scoots. The feels much more at speed than the Vino or quite as good as the Vespa, but the 8 is also 1/3 the cost. The acceleration is and mine tops out around (actual—the speedometer is a little and reports about 63-65), about 80 mpg.

At this point, I should add one about the ride. the first 300 or so will be very different what I said above. In you’ll probably think the is made from iron and why the shocks seem to do nothing but impact directly to your But stay the course and it will all out fine. The seat will up and the ride will improve (as will the engine performance and gas only got about 65 mpg on the first

By the way, the break-in period is no fun to reign in the throttle on a scoot so much fun to run. But once through that, you’ll it. The look of the scooter is great. The style really stands don’t think there’s design that’s even so you’ll definitely turn I have the red/black combination, and the green/black looks slick, too yellow/blue is a bit much for my taste,

Personally, I love the sport styling, and it seems to fit the personality of the

A few other general notes. the suspension is adjustable. The US version has an system (presumably to meet requirements?), which ties in at the top of the tank and can become a problem if you the gas tank (simple solution: trying to cram that bit of gas in there!). The scooter takes oil, which I think it for diesel engines.

I only had two options for 15W-40 at my parts store, neither of was synthetic.

Overall, this is a scoot and I would highly it! Read Full Review
