The Super 8 of scooters was introduced in 2009 in Canada) as the eventual replacement for the but aging Super 9. The Super 8 on sale as of 2014, with options varying over the between 50cc 4-…, 2-… and 150cc 4-… The logical name for the replacement of the 9 might have been the 10, but perhaps Super 8 rolls off the a little nicer. In any case, the 8 scooters are great machines.

gave these scooters a sporty look reminiscent of SR50. which is quite a because the SR50 is an extremely scooter.

The first thing notice with the Super 8 its good looks, which is nicer in real life), is the It’s about 20% larger the typical 50cc, which is because most 50’s are for North America. The Super 8 has a sized cockpit for the typical and it will accommodate riders in of 6 feet.

Small riders may want to elsewhere, as the seat is likely too for anyone with an inseam under 29”.

Being a larger 50cc (or a small 150cc), the Super 8 has a 53.7” wheelbase and a higher average weight of 233 lbs (50cc) or 258 lbs With the larger wheels and wheelbase the Super 8 corners well, but it takes a confident to get the full performance as the higher (31”) takes some used to.

Protection from the is surprisingly good, with a effective legshield incorporated in the 8’s style. At speed, a can keep most rain off lower body. The windscreen is too to provide a substantial benefit, but it reduce the wind buffeting the chest. The style of the Super 8 really well from to back and the whole rear end nicely to a sport bike pointed tail.

Kymco has done a great job this design, but enthusiasts may to trade a bit of spray protection for lines by tidying up the large fender.

Other practical include good underseat but no glove box. Putting a top box on a this stylish is a crime, so will have to keep insurance papers in their

The Super 8 offers an excellent disc brake, which is the best found on a 50cc It offers amazing outright along with predictable In the rear is a pretty standard brake which fulfills the

It’s harmless enough you can mindlessly grab a handful to down, and if stopping urgency is then look to the front


Over its run, the 8 has been sold with a of three motors, none of are particularly advanced but that’s not to say aren’t nice reliable When the Super 8 was introduced in the USA for buyers had a choice between a 50cc or 4-… 150cc

For 2010 Americans were the same two choices, while were offered the Super 8 for the time and with a choice a peppy 2-… 50cc (the same one as the Super 9) or a 150cc. Unlike in the USA, the 8 50 was as fast as it looked. The 4-… motor was fine, but its non-restricted mph top speed doesn’t exactly as well as the racing leather photos implied.

Conversely, the 50 can attain 45mph on flat

For 2011 Kymco USA added the 8 50 in a 2-… version and for 2012 the 4-… 50 entirely. The 2-… uses Kymco’s version of AF18/AF16 motor that back to the mid 90’s. This is a basic design (air 2-valves, carburated) but it’s and has a lot of performance potential (these can easily be modified to 60mph and

The ’94 — ’01 Elite SR shares the same motor as the 2-… Super 8 some small differences) so aftermarket parts for that can be used including big bore You can learn a bit more about motor and derestricting it at the Super 9

Fuel economy for the Super 8 from about 70mpg 50cc and 4-… 150) to (4-… 50). You can expect a bit less from your 50cc if highly modified. The milage isn’t class but it’s pretty good.

A 2-… Super 8 is capable of so buyers should choose between the 150cc model and the 50. The 150 model is faster still 60mph) but the insurance costs are to be quite a bit lower if you opt for the 2-…


Overall, the Super 8 is very scooter. It’s got sharp styling and the 2-… has the performance to compete with scooters Yamaha’s BWs 50 and Aprila’s SR50. The low of the Super 8 is likely going to be to convince many buyers it’s worth accepting engine technology while like Aprilia’s SR50 are fancy liquid cooled, injected, fuel injected

Like its competitors, the Super 8 has a disc brake and reasonable storage. Aprilia does it a step further with a and a rear disc brake, but you do pay a premium for that. The Super 8 is an entry into the high scooter scene and it’s a lot easier to work on and cheaper to than the SR50.
