Well the verdict will be out on the new 09 models (scooters overall have increased their resale value), but Kymcos as a whole have been increasing their brand awareness and the support as far as parts availability has been excellent. Aftermarket wise they have been gaining popularity, but nothing compares with the Zuma 50 and Ruckus for hop up parts. Unlike the 50's this is gonna be a 65+ MPH Scooter out of the box bone stock. When the weather gets nice I'll get out and ride one.

Get one of these 50cc scooters - looks like a fun toy.

Kymco seems to be coming along with the name, def. looks like they will be around for a while. Fastest we have had the new Zuma at work up to is about 57 mph on the speedometer. It was brand new though so we shall see. Everyday we get people in looking for parts for other crappy scooters and pocket/pit bikes as there is no support from the places (Pepboys and used car dealers) whoring that crap out. People have to learn the hard way I guess. The black and green one looks good and check out the wave rotor on the front.

on a flat road with no wind, mine will eek it's way up to 60. although any slight incline or anything else will drop it back down quickly.

do you have any zumas there for comparison? that thing looks big, so does the Zuma 125 but its only about an inch longer according to specs.

i like the small size of mine, it easily fits next to my toolbox here at work and is easy to move around on the stand. any bigger and it would be like riding a full size bike.

No I don't but I think its a few inches longer than the Zuma 125. It also has 14" Rims. I got the one we have prepared to go 65 easily yesterday with no tucking and I'm 5'10 200lbs. On Palatine Rd. I saw 67 on the speedo after tucking a little before I had to slow down with traffic. (it will get faster as it brakes in) This model is definitely more like sportbike than anything else Kymco has, it handles well, turns sharp stops well and accelerates nicely.
