“Like at first sight. Love ever since.”
That’s what scooter enthusiasts will experience with the 2015 KYMCO Like 200i, the company promises. Offering a new take on an old classic, this model has an impressive vintage look coupled with surprising modern power. Will the Facebook generation “like” what they find here? Read on.
Not just for the city
As the entry-level Like 50 bows out, its larger-displacement brother soldiers on. The KYMCO Like 200i uses an air-cooled, 163cc, 4-stroke, single-cylinder engine with electronic fuel injection to allow both downtown commutes and suburban trips, including on highways. The 7L fuel tank helps extend the ride.
With such motivation, the Like 200i offers true, comfortable two-up touring, especially with the integrated hand grips and folding aluminum foot pegs for the passenger. A telescopic fork and dual adjustable rear shocks make up for the small 12” wheels, while front and rear disc brakes improve safety.
Cool and practical
The KYMCO Like 200i stands out with retro colour schemes such as classic yellow and pearl red. This is complemented with a digital/analog instrument cluster. Let’s not forget the sturdy centre stand and spring-assisted side stand.
Furthermore, with plenty of storage including an illuminated under-seat compartment and a colour-coordinated rear top box as standard equipment for groceries and packages, you should have no trouble getting your errands done and having fun at the same time.
The 2015 KYMCO Like 200i starts at $3,395.
