2013 Kymco Downtown Review

So here is my non-technical and experiences (so far) on the 2013 Downtown 300i .

At 367 lbs and 300cc for you technical people) and 29 hp, the Downtown 300i has some zip. It accelerates well but has a moment of hesitation before into gear. As I adjust to the I’m finding it a little jerky up to and 20-30 mph. At 35+ mph it’s smoother and has nice passing at 50+. I really like how it more like a motorcycle a scooter.

It’s not ground teeth shattering Harley but more noticeable than my

Gas mileage is estimated more a 250cc (60+ mpg) it’s lighter than maxi-scooters (compared to the likes of a Some reports have it to 70 mpg but I’m sure it just depends on how you I’ve only got about miles on it so far and I’m getting just a over 60 MPG.

  I sometimes on the freeway and absolutely LOVE cars (when it’s of course) so I could get a few more per gallon if I wasn’t gunning it the time.

In town riding is good as far as turns and general maneuverability. It has balance for a maxi scoot it’s a little higher off the than a Burgman. Being 6′ 1″, I like I could put my knees on the but more on that later. The rest does not move and it provides plenty of back I feel like my knees are to hit the handle bars.

Before I got the I had gotten used to riding in a relaxed position with my extended and there’s absolutely no way to do for anyone my height. I took it to an repair person who specializes in and motorcycles to have the seat back an inch.  Sadly, had little effect on riding I feel like I’m sliding when I hit bumps so if I’m carrying a bag, I can wedge my knees it to stay on the seat.

  Not the best thing to do while so I’m hoping to find another modder out there who can replace it

On the freeway I’ve noticed it doesn’t have that noise like my old RV250. though the windshield is about the height, I believe it’s of the design of the windshield. There’s an at the bottom for air to flow so even at 65 I felt like I was still about 40. Of course, it it’s you still feel it on the freeway but normal riding conditions, very comfortable.

  My helmet has its own so road noise is a little but the scooter was very stable at speeds. It does seem to rev high but the technician didn’t anything when I took it in for The rear shocks are adjustable but so far seem OK in the default position.

reports say the underseat space is That’s partially true. large but awkwardly shaped. I can fit my full face helmet but not my laptop.

I think my RV250 had more space and was better arranged. I can fit my bag around the handlebars but I’m going to something more if I need to something up. I really was hoping to a trunk but I think I’m going to one. There’s a small compartment by the handlebars that has a 12V but you can’t lock it.

There’s no either. The battery is in an odd (and to reach) location under the I’m not sure how I’m going to get my battery hooked up. The fuse box is also placed under the seat and not to access.

  Apparently, storage was an for the Downtown.  There are some trunks for the Downtown but I’m going to off for as long as I can.

The instrument is decent. It has the basics but I still know why these folks sell a scooter where you can get time format. My SYM was the same The controls are easy to read and a kinda muscle car look to The blinkers make a clicking which is a nice touch you can’t hear them 40 mph).

The headlights are bright as s#$t. I you can see them from space. work exceptionally well at I had no problems reading the gauges at or the daytime. The front turn are built into the side but there are placeholders for ones the headlights too.

I read someone who modded the turn to alternate between the two which I may to try myself. The ignition/keyhole area is to take some time to It’s got about 20 different You unlock the underseat storage it so there’s no separate lock. a button to close off the ignition which is very easy to

I think there are other where you push in the key and turn it while standing on your to make it do something else. learning about that

The center stand is super to use. For a bigger scooter, it very little effort. no parking brake though.

odd is that there’s an ABS sensor but model does not have it. The are also adjustable and right now very tight. Someone small hands may not be able to them easily.

  It’s a bit uncomfortable when riding in weather.

Overall I really how the scooter handles both low and speeds. I was looking for an all-around to do both in-town riding and if long distance rides wouldn’t stress the engine. I wanted something I could get for and while I know SYM is getting there are at least two places I can get and/or service in town.

and reliability were also a and so far most everything I’ve about Kymco is very The seat design was almost a breaker but when I read a place nearby on a local I thought it would give me I needed. The other stuff is getting familiar with the

While I prefer the look of the sans trunk, I figure I can it off when I don’t need it. I like the looks and color as it me more of a sport bike. I was to get a 2012 model at a lower but they were all out.

else have one of these bad If you’re a taller rider, let me how you like riding your
