When purchasing a Kymco scooter consider factors such as the form of commuting, the weight of bike, fuel economy, storage space and type of engine start. Also consider, where to buy the scooter.
For regular commuting, over short distances in city traffic, a 50cc scooter works well. It has a top speed of 30 miles per hour and is light weight, thereby being the most fuel efficient. The 150cc scooter is good for traveling long distances and can be used in city traffic, as well as on the highway. It has a maximum speed of 60 to 70 mph and is relatively heavier and high on fuel economy.
The executive models of Kymco scooters are known for the extra storage space, whereas the sports model has increased power and performance. Buy from a reputable dealer that gives a manufacture certificate of origin on purchase. Test ride the scooter before buying to gauge comfort level.
