Kymco, The Brand, Top Models and Kymco Scooter Battery

For very many years, Kymco has been the steady hand when it comes to the Australian Scooter Scene. Nothing much has changed as it is still at the fore front of producing a wide range of scooters that fly its flag up high. The brand has forged a great and solid reputation around all its selection of models. This goes a long way to show that it has lived up to its venture slogan that reads “Better than Best”. With the brand’s products, riders can be assured that they will be lead into safe, convenient leisurely and entertaining world of dynamism and power.

Kymco’s history can be traced back to 1963 where it was founded after splitting from its mother company Honda. In 1970, the company managed to build its first complete scooter and in 1922 it started marketing under Kymco brand. The company rose to become the largest scooter manufacturers in the 2000s in Taiwan and the 5th in the globe. The company produces more than 57,000 vehicles every year with some pretty famous scooter models that are well received in the market some of them reviewed below.

The first top model from the brand is Kymco Super 8 125 that not only looks good but it also feels good when it is out on the road. It is a full bag of tricks with numerous practical features producing 7 KW of power. The size of the wheels is notable (14 inches). It is sporty in nature with splash graphics ideal for the target market. A twin halogen set takes care of the lighting and when high beam is needed, both of them work on unison offering plenty of light. The front brake is also quite impressive. Another great feature is the mudguard that prevents water from splashing into unwanted areas.

The second top model is the Downtown 300i boasting a full engine 289.9cc and ABS standard. The engine produces 22KW of power running on 4 valve head liquid cooled that is fuel injected. It also has two tiered seats where the driver is supported by the backrest while the passenger sits high nicely. The storage area is quite long while grab handles for strapping items come in handy especially when the rider is on touring mode. The floor tunnel is well raised and it is also flat and wide. All the above combined with numerous other great components make the scooter one that can handle more than one role making it ideal for city commuting and touring as well. You can even go out shopping with it and come back with supplies for an entire week.

To make sure that all the models work the way they are supposed to, it is important to make sure that all the components they are made up of are well taken care of. For instance a faulty Kymco scooter battery can cause problems where you may not even be able to take advantage of this quality machine. This is nothing to worry about though as calling 1300 468 931 ensures you get expert help to make sure it performs effectively for the longest time possible.


roadside response customer reviews

Keero was really helpful over the phone. He asked a couple of questions and we figured out straight away that the problem was most likely a dead battery. Phil was in the area and arrived in less than 40 minutes. Got a new battery and I was back up and running again. Thanks guys.

Thanks for the great service. I didn’t realise that getting a battery delivered and installed cost less than buying it in the shops. I’ll be telling all my mates about Roadside Response.
