, United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 07, 2009 -- The popularity of 125cc Scooters continues to grow in the UK with commuters wanting economical and reliable everyday transportation. This discerning new consumer also wants a high quality, stylish and reliable machine at an affordable price, and in response KYMCO has added its own version of the retro Scooter to its 125cc range. The new KYMCO LIKE 125 is a classically styled Scooter from Italian designer Massimo Zaniboni.
Competitively priced at just Â£1699, the KYMCO LIKE combines the clean and modern lines of a retro scooter with the engineering, build quality and comfort of a 21st century machine. The name âLIKEâ derives from the fact that the design is based on Massimoâs own interpretation of 50âs and 60âs scooters, which is evident from the LIKEâs characteristic styling. The white pearlescent paintwork, chrome mirrors, wide body panels and chrome surround headlamp on the handlebars provide the classic retro look.
Unlike the old smoky 2-strokes, the KYMCO LIKE is a modern day Scooter powered by the latest low emission 4-stroke air-cooled engine, making it greener and more fuel-efficient, capable of achieving in excess of 100 miles per gallon. With a top speed of 65 mph, coupled with a long wheelbase and 12-inch alloy wheels for added stability, the LIKE is perfect for the city commute and day or weekend trips.
Many top of the range features are also included as standard, such as a halogen headlight, a digital instrument panel, including fuel gauge, a colour-coded top box, in addition to an electric and kick-start, automatic choke, lockable under seat storage box, steering lock, and centre and side stands
The LIKE 125 offers the whole package for riders wanting retro style with the latest technology at an affordable price. This is further complimented with FREE INSURANCE for 17-19 olds (subject to T&Cs), an unlimited mileage 2-year manufacturerâs warranty and the support of KYMCOâs National dealer network.
