Kymco scooter

Kymco, a renowned name in the realm of technologically advanced scooters and a manufacturer for brands like Kawasaki and BMW, made a significant impact at this year’s EICMA show in Milan. Among the array of models presented, the spotlight shone on the CV-L6.

In recent years, the adventure scooter segment has witnessed remarkable growth, with key players such as Honda, Yamaha, SYM, and Keeway introducing new models. Kymco has now joined the fray with the CV-L6, a maxi-scooter infused with rugged styling and off-road capabilities. Embodying the principles of freedom, toughness, and adventure, Kymco’s CV-L6 offers design cues from the adventure bike world — characterized by its pointed and aggressive bodywork, tall windscreen, and integrated luggage — while retaining the accessibility and user-friendly nature of a maxi-scooter.

Positioned as a versatile ride suitable for both urban commuting and long-distance adventures, the CV-L6 boasts a blend of technology emphasizing comfort, safety, convenience, and performance. Powering this adventure-ready scooter is the same robust 550cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected parallel-twin engine found in the impressive AK 550 maxi-scooter, delivering 51 horsepower.

Beyond sheer performance, the CV-L6 rides on alloy wheels fitted with dual-purpose tires. Its front suspension features sturdy inverted forks with substantial travel, complemented by an offset rear monoshock. Braking prowess is managed by dual Brembo radially mounted discs up front and a single disc brake at the rear.

Kymco has ingeniously crafted the CV-L6 around a new lightweight frame, providing a lower seat height to cater to a diverse range of riders. Enhancing the adventure-ready design are integrated luggage accessories from Givi, comprising side panniers and a top case. This thoughtful addition allows riders to customize their experience for varying distances, with the flexibility to remove the side panniers and top case for a more agile city ride.

Milan, Italy, 7th November 2017 – KYMCO has a good presence in Malaysia with their maxi scooters, but they also make motorcycles and ATVs. KYMCO has just added a new member to their family at EICMA 2017, called the XCITING S 400.

The KYMCO XCITING S 400 is the successor to the successful XCITING 400, which is renowned for its agile handling and the best horsepower in its class, apart from its smooth and quiet power delivery. The XCITING S 400 is designed in KYMCO’s “Win My Heart” spirit to surpass all that. KYMCO claims that it meets the stringent demands of riders seeking the best “sport touring scooter.”

The design of the new XCITING S 400 is built upon the “Powerful Simplicity” philosophy, combining the riding comfort and high-speed stability, perfect for the city commute and weekend excursions.

The new bike features the industry’s first ECE-approved Daytime Running Light for scooters to provide maximum visibility to other motorists, besides highlighting its identity.

The smoothly powerful engine produces 35.5 bhp (26.5 kW) and 37.7 Nm of torque. It guarantees responsive acceleration in urban traffic and high speed sprints.

Having a powerful engine also requires features to harness the power. KYMCO redesigned the hanger axle for a more rigid mounting point for the engine to the frame. The double bridge front suspension also increases rigiditiy. All these features add up to a maneuverable yet stable motorcycle.

There’s further proof of KYMCO’s desire to make the XCITING S 400 more accommodating.

The front seat tapers for easy feet placement during stops. The rear seat has a backrest to support the passenger. Instead of opening the entire seat to access the storage compartment underneath, the XCITING S 400 features a unique two-seat opening design. The windscreen is adjustable to accommodate different physiques and riding conditions. The handlebar is V-shaped to allow better line of view to the instrument cluster while riding.

KYMCO is also looking forward to adding the newly developed Noodoe Navigation feature upon the release of the XCITING S 400 next year. What distinguishes Noodoe Navigation from the rest is that it’s the world’s first rider-centric navigation system. Noodoe Navigation will be formally launced at the Tokyo Motorcycle show in March 2018.
