Taiwanese motorcycle manufacturing giant, Kwang Yang Motor Co, Ltd. (KYMCO), has unveiled 4 new scooters during a virtual world premiere. The new models, many of which are in new segments for the brand, are destined for global distribution.
Kymco Group chairman, Allen Ko, led the virtual launch of these 4 exciting new scooters from Taiwan. First were the DT X360 and CV3 for the maxi-scooter segment, the KRV small scooters, followed by the F9 electric mobility scooter.
This appears to be Kymco’s answer to Honda’s ADV 300 dual-sport scooter. It is powered by a potent 320.6cc single-cylinder 4-stroke, liquid-cooled engine, and boasts features such as a keyless ignition system, a full-LED dashboard, LED lighting; ABS, traction control system (TCS), complete with dual-sport 14 (front) and 13-inch (rear) tires.
This maxi scooter, according to Ko, will allow urban riders to “occasionally get out of their comfort zone and to expand their horizons in all directions.”
The CV3 is Kymco’s first foray into 3-wheeled scooter mobility. This maxi scooter is powered by a mighty 550.4cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine, generating 52 Ps of power at 7,500 rpm and 53 Nm of torque at 5,750 rpm.
Besides the unique 2-wheel design for the front which gives the CV3 superior stability over other scooters in its class, it also has cruise control, full-LED dashboard and lighting; ABS, traction control system, keyless ignition system, a large-capacity underseat utility box and much more.
The KRV is a 175cc touring scooter from Kymco, directly inspired by the company’s flagship scooter, the AK 550. The KRV is also equipped with ABS, TCS, full-LED lighting, and a keyless ignition system. It has a flat-floor RV body design that allows for a relaxed riding position for both spirited (short) rides and long journeys.
The F9 is Kymco’s answer to those who think electric motorcycles (or scooters) are not exciting at all. According to Kymco, the F9 is capable of reaching a top speed of 110 kilometers per hour, thanks to its 9.4 kW brushless motor that is equipped with a 2-speed automatic transmission.
Its 96-volt, 40Ah battery pack has a claimed range of 120 kilometers and can be fully charged in just 2 hours.
