The Kymco Xciting — The Bargain Maxi-Scooter?

May 3rd, — At long last, the Kymco Xciting has arrived at in Minneapolis Minnesota. As soon as Bob had un-packed, I rushed over, in hand, to have a look. this scooter certainly to have been worth the

The highway legal Maxi-Scooter has pretty much been the of the big Japanese companies, with a of Italian rides added to the Certainly one of the most popular of is the Honda Reflex, and with reason — just ask much anybody who owns For my purposes here, I am going to use the as a reference point for comparison the Xciting, but one could probably the Yamaha Majesty and Suzuki 400 as well.

Let me preface this by that I am not knocking any of these scooters, just trying to my honest opinion. so no hate please, as always, humorous of me and my opinions is welcome.

Since I first posted announcement, I have had the opportunity to put miles on an Exciting — see the review below .

The Honda is a 250cc liquid-cooled powered scoot, as is the Xciting. Anti-Lock (ABS) is available on the Reflex, and as included on the Xciting, that’s the pricing I will be referencing. The also has dual front brakes and single rear the Reflex is single front and The Reflex has a one-year factory the Xciting has a two-year warranty.

The of components and fit finish on both the and Xciting is top notch.

So what’s the big about the Xciting? It’s less expensive than the . At the time of this writing, the ABS is $5,999.00 and the Xciting is $4,899.00 . For the Yamaha Majesty ( 400cc ) is and the Suzuki Burgman 400 is $5,699.00. In the of this rambling, I put bargain in because in my opinion none of machines are in the impulse-buy pricing

As such, bargain is a relative

Despite the scowling face ( I it reminds me of Eric Cartman’s I you guys face ), Bob of Scooterville was very pleased with machine. It was Bob’s recommendation ( with the article in Minnesota Monthly ) that convinced me to a Kymco People 250 for my touring That acquisition has left me nothing but good to say about Will I be rushing out to trade in my for an Xciting?

Probably not. If I talk my wife into me get an Xciting, maybe even her Vino in the process, would I do it? In a second. Being of normal ( as you can see in the picture, Bob is freakishly tall I’d say six feet at least as to the much more ordinary 8 of a normal person ) and rotund I don’t know if I really tour two-up on the People or the

I do think they’d make a his-and-hers pair.

Warning Local Joke

OK, I’m Ken. I admit that jealous of your Stella, and my relatively unadorned red one looks in comparison to yours. Oh, and, the shiny helmet is very gotta get me one of those.

Kymco Xciting 500i

I launch into my impressions of the Xciting 250, I should be up about the fact that I own a People 250 — and am very with it. I’m not just for Kymco, but I do want to provide disclosure from the get-go. I my personal Kymco ownership me to speak from experience this company.

If you don’t want to read this whole thing ( and I say that I blame you — if you’ve read my ramblings ), I’ll save you some I like the Xciting 250. I you’ll like the Xciting IF you have an inseam of at least 30 (more on that latter ) .

I up the Xciting from Bob at Scooterville on a afternoon and ran around the Twin for a good bit. That the Xciting got some highway two-up. My wife Beverly and I from St. Paul to Cottage for a bonfire put on by Kingsborough Homes. and went on to Prescott and Hudson in before heading home to St.

Saturday was solo-ride time for me, and the Xciting went back to

Speedometer Reading and Fuel

I used a ( borrowed ) Garmin GPS and that the Kymco Xciting display was more accurate most scooters. The speedometer a speed that was about 5% At an indicated speed of 60 MPH, the speed was just shy of 57 MPH. fuel economy was right at 60

I did not do multiple tests of gas mileage and I was the Xciting pretty hard. As you see in the seat height picture, I an NOT a person, and a lot of the riding was with my ( who is pretty small ). Even just me on the scoot, I was pushing it hard to get a good feeling for it could do. I would expect normal riding, with one would result in better economy.
