KYMCO GTi 300
 
1st look at the new KYMCO. I wonder what it will top out at. If it can make it into the 80's I might just become a one bike guy.

Is it coming to the USA? I'm buying either the Kymco GT300i or the Honda SH300i - whichever comes here first!

The Kymco Italia website says it's "velocito max" is 130 kph, which is just over 80 mph, so hopefully that will make the cut!

Hexnut; good news that it will be coming to the States mid-late summer. Did you hear that from a reliable source?

It's the exact same engine as the Downtown 300i and that will make 83 mph GPS bone stock. It will run with, or better than, any of the other 250-300 range scoots no problem.

tastroman 04-11-2011 06:58 AM

Well, I guess Honda can keep their sh300.

From another forum. This guy is a member of the scooter club that is associated with justgottascoot. So who knows...


I am reliably informed that Kymco will be bringing the People GT 200i and People GT 300i to the US market in mid to late summer. I predict these badass rides will own the Big Wheel market. David Harrington of http://www.justgottascoot.com is supposed to be getting his hands on a 300 sometime in May. The models are not yet shown on the Kymco USA site, but you can check them out on the corporate site. http://www.kymco.com/event/2010_PeopleGTi/ I WANT! http://s2.images.proboards.com/grin.gif

>>Honda can keep their sh300

I wrote kymco a few weeks ago and asked to purchase a 300 for US product testing, hehehe. They haven't gotten back to me.

Kymco has better styling than the Honda, looks a bit roomier too. If you have big feet just an inch or so on the floor boards can make the difference.

tastroman 04-11-2011 08:00 AM

And I love the versatility of a flat floorboard. You can carry all kinds of odd shaped things.

I don't really use the under seat storage, but the hook for a shopping bag is invaluable. I picked up a truck part the other day that was about 24", just stuck it right in the shopping bag.

Here are picture of the Kymco, this site also has lists of different scooter classes.

gti300
28hp, 22 ft lb torque (almost twice the HD200)
57 in wheelbase, I guess it is stretched a bit!
31.8 seat height (@1.5" shorter than HD)
363 lb

Kymco USA can go ahead and put me down for one. This is exactly what I'm looking for - just can't decide on silver or that funky gold/yellow color!

I got a Scarabeo 150 which I really like, but I find that I ride it on the fast highway and freeway probably more that is was designed for. I'll get the Kymco GTi for my primary, religate the 'Beo for a "buddy scoot" and sell the Fly 150.

The engine is the same but it's been retuned/detuned, it's got about 2hp
less then the Downtown, and the aerodynamics should be a bit worse then
the Downtown.

I've seen Downtown do everything from 85 to 100mph indicated (not GPS),
so the People GTi should come close to that, but to tell the truth, other then
the probability that the GTi is a bit better in lanesplitting the Downtown seems
like a better choice for any other situation and the DT would be my choice
(and maybe will be, if I can't find a good deal on a XC500).

And GTi vs SH300? A no-brainer for me, Kymco all the way.
