A premium urban scooter?
Newly introduced in Canada, this lovely Kymco stands out as a modern and nimble scooter. It will appeal to beginners and intermediate riders who look for a decently-sized machine to criss-cross the city, even on service lanes. Basically, it's easy to access and easy to ride.

Kymco's designers have a knack for creating sleek, modern-looking machines. The Bet&Win has style and won't fade quickly. The single-tone color scheme is becomingly understated. This stylish scooter flies more under the radar than its big brother, the Bet&Win 250. Build quality shows just how serious the company is. Upright
Given the short wheelbase and raised front frame section, the rider has no other choice but to adopt a very upright position. The floorboard is not very long and you don't have the luxury to stretch your legs or slant your feet. It's the classic scooter riding position and I can live with that.
On the other hand, the seat bulge might be comfortable and convenient for shorter riders, but taller folks tend to sit on the ridge of that bulge which, obviously, is a lot less comfortable. Therefore, you can either sit farther back (long-legged individuals will have no problems) or bend your knees a little more. Beco recently asked the manufacturer to replace this seat with a ridgeless alternative in order to better suit most North American riders.
Since the Bet&Win 150 only weighs 138 kilos, I found it easy to move and park on its center stand. At idle, I had absolutely no difficulty resting my feet on the ground.
