KYMCO has come a long way. We own a Grand Vista and while it is a great scoot it loses a bit in the looks department. Have had my eye on the Downtown 300i for some time but now the new People is getting my attention. My wife will love the look of the Like. It's great that KYMCO is aggressively engaged in the US scoot market.

Nice line-up review!

Was that with a backflip?

Nah, I usually do the "Pour" maneuver, where I just sort of pour out of bed OR the "Leverage Kick" where, from a supine position, I lift my legs and quickly swing them down and to the side while tightening my stomach, causing my upper body to sit up out of bed and my feet to touch the floor.

My backflipping out of bed days ended in college. :D

Kymco is really starting to take off here in Oz. I own a 50cc Sento and saw the 100cc is available in Europe. I love the look of the People and here we have the Espresso as well.........nice.
I love my scooter ride it 30km to work everyday, anyone know how to make it go faster? I have read where you can de-govern, de-restrict, remove the limiter or whatever you call it. Sorry I'm just starting ti learn about my Scoot and for some reason when a female asks questions we are answered with a chuckle.....cute. Anyway, when I'm on my Pink Sento wearing my Husbands Leather jacket, leather gloves and boots, you best not be messin' with me.....I say that with fondness and caring.G
Cheers Gabi
