Initially cooled (Super 9 LC) and a cheaper air (Super 9 AC) versions were but the liquid cooled version meet emissions after the 2 years or so, so most Super out there are the air cooled ones. versions of the Super 9 use the same engine.

Kymco also the ‘Racer’ version of their scooter for 2003, which was the Cobra Racer or Cobra R. scooter was the same scooter as the Cross, but with street and no wire grill covering the These Cobra Racer were only sold for the model year.

Kymco USA dropped their inspired Cobra Cross and added the sporty Vitality 50 in blue). The Vitality 50 started off as a but a 4-… version would in later years. Kymco added the 250cc Grandvista to their line up. The Grandvista 250 was to the Bet Win 250 but more touring/highway oriented.

The of the line up carried over

North of the border, BECO International started Kymco and began importing the first Their 2005 debut included four scooters from 50cc to 250cc there was two 50cc’s and two larger Bet Win The ZX50 was their affordable option, while the Super 9 was the sporty 50cc option.

The Bet Win 150 and 250cc (below right) rounded up the Canadian line up.

USA’s big news for the 2006 year was the debut of the 500cc maxi scooter. The Xciting 500 was a big for Kymco, as it was their first maxi-scooter. The Grandvista 250 was a capable machine, but it wasn’t a full on devouring maxi like the 500.

Aside from 500 introduction, Kymco trimmed lineup by dropping the aging 50. The Filly 50 had been one of Kymco original scooters when entered the USA market. It’s ended the Filly’s USA run at five

Kymco Canada was still rolling in the new market. Their up went unchanged for 2006 as worked on expanding their network.

expanded line up for 2007 with the low Agility 50 125cc (below and People S (50cc, 125cc, 250cc) lines (below of scooters. The Agility scooters introduced at a mere $1399 and $1899 (150cc) which is an value and led to their high Also new for 2007 was a 250cc of the Xciting maxi scooter.

The casualty for 2007 was the aging ZX 50 was dropped after a three run, although it would to be sold in Canada for another STR Motorsports sold 50% of Kymco USA to Global this year.

For Kymco USA kept their lineup intact except for the Bet Win 250 from their crowded up. In Canada, Kymco played up by introducing a number of models were already available in the The People S line (50cc, 200cc) was introduced except for the 250cc variant.

Kymco also began importing the 500 and the Vitality 50, both of which had on sale for several years in the Canadians received the updated Ri of the Xciting 500, which fuel injection and sporty Americans would wait year for the Ri.

Both Kymco USA and Kymco made some major to their line up for 2009. added the all new Yager 200i Frost 200i in Canada) was an important model for Kymco. The was the first mid-size Kymco to not use the aging motor found in all (125cc — 200cc) previously.

The new engine was 174.5cc and fuel injection liquid which was big news from Aside from the Frost, Canada also added the styled 4-… Sento 50 in black) and they added a version of the Vitality 50.

Kymco did was to the overlap between their similar People and People S by keeping only the smaller scooters (50cc, 150cc) and the People S scooters (200cc,

The Super 8 is a sporty scooter seemingly was introduced as a replacement for the 9 in both 50cc and 150cc but they were sold each other for 2009. For just a 4-… version of the 8 50 was sold in the USA, but a 2-… would be added in future Lastly, a sportier and fuel ‘Ri’ version of the Xciting 500 the regular model.

Kymco USA the aging Super 9 now that the Super 8 was selling well. The new 8 scooters used the same but reliable 4-… motors has been using for years.

Canada tidied up their line by dropping the popular but Super 9, People series, S series and the Bet Win series of scooters and the Super 8 50 150 and the Downtown 300i in orange). With these Kymco stopped selling the People S and Bet Win scooters. Unlike in the Canadians were offered the Super 8 in a 2-… rather a 4-….

Both 50cc 8 engines are older air cooled

Kymco Canada kept lineup unchanged for the 2011 year, while Kymco USA a larger 200cc version of the Kymco USA also added the 300i that was introduced in the previous year and offered a version of the Super 8 50 alongside the available 4-… version. receiving fuel injection, the 200i still uses a (163cc vs.

174cc) and older core than the Frost/Yager GT 200i.

In news, STR Motorsports sold remaining 50% of Kymco USA back to global in spring 2011, Kymco USA now wholly owned by global.

At Kymco USA’s press event in South the biggest news for 2012 was the new GT 200i and 300i scooters. scooter share extremely styling that is perhaps the yet from Kymco. The new People GT uses the same advanced as the Downtown 300i, while the GT uses an all new 205cc 4-valve with fuel injection.

Also sharing new 205cc motor is a smaller of Kymco’s Downtown scooter. The new 200i can be had for $400 less the 300i model.

Another idea from Kymco for is ‘LX’ versions of their styled Like 50 and Like 200 The ‘LX’ version includes a two color paint job and various accents. It’s

going to be a package amongst like since it only adds to the MSRP.

Several models dropped for 2012 which are the 50, Grandvista 250, Xciting 250 and version of the Super 8. It’s to see why the Sting 50 and Xciting 250 scooters squeezed out of Kymco’s line up all the great new models they are The 4-… Super 8 is likely not

offered since the 2-… was far more popular in 2011.

USA is carrying over the Agility, Yager GT 200i and Xciting 500 unchanged.

Kymco Canada quite a few changes as well. are being offered the new People GT in the smaller 200i size. of the biggest news for 2012 is the introduction of a new generation of Sento, is being called the ‘New (shown right) and is available in 50i and 110i versions. Also new is the City 50, which is the first Canadians have been an Agility model.

The Agility City 50 is the same scooter (frame and motor) as the 50 sold in the USA, but the ‘City’ receives larger wheels and a of nice upgrades like a rear case, nicer integrated and more.

Kymco is carrying over the Vitality 50, 8 50 / 150, Frost 200i, 300i and Xciting 500.

fairly short three runs, the Sento 50 and Yager GT 200 made way for newer machines in 2013 USA lineup. The Sento 50 is replaced by the new retro styled which comes in 50i and 110i If those sizes sound it’s because this is the scooter Kymco Canada for 2012 as the New Sento 50i and 110i.

for 2013 is an entirely new nameplate in Canada and the USA — the Movie Resembling the Super 8 150 more anything else, the Movie 150 is a subtle sporty model the flashy Super 8. T

he Movie 150 some neat features disc brakes front and and LED tail lighting. As well, the 500 has been restyled for 2013 and second generation Bosch which is now standard.

Finally, USA has dropped the People 50 and 150 scooters ending their runs at 12 and 11 respectively. The People 50 had been a of Kymco’s USA lineup since 2001 move in the USA market, but continual refinement of their lineup spelled the end for these machines.

Besides the new Movie 150 and the Xciting 500, Canadians are getting both sizes of the (50cc 200cc) for 2013 their southern brethren.

several years of cat and mouse, land yacht — the 700i — finally on North American interstates. biggest Kymco delivers the range of maxi amenities at a that undercuts Suzuki’s 650. The MyRoad is available in a color (white in the USA, in Canada). With 61 horsepower the MyRoad makes quick of any passing opportunity.

It’s a solid competitor to recently updated Burgman 650 to this point hasn’t much competition. The MyRoad by undercutting Suzuki’s MSRP by a grand while also an impressively list of standard from ABS to temperature sensors in the MSRP is $9699 in the USA and $296 ($9995) in Canada.

The rest of USA lineup carries over only a few changes. The most change is the new single headlight for the Super 8 (50 and 150cc models), is accompanied by new racing graphics most of the machine. The value Agility also gets flashy graphics and the MSRP for the $100 to $1599 — is still probably the cheapest scooter you can buy in America.

The other decision for 2014 was the omission of the variants of the People GT and Downtown. The versions have always a little undersized for the highway and a few hundred less than the versions, so Kymco is retaining the 300 versions. Unfortunately for Canadians means no more People GT as the 300 been offered there.

The Canadian omission for 2013 is the 50, which concludes its run at six years. has also shorted the name of the New down to just the Sento for which might create a bit of with the older Sento offered until 2011.
