KYMCO Australia have released two new Agility models as scooters take another dive in the Australian market.
The new models are the Agility City 125i 16+ at $3290 (plus on-road costs) and includes a top case, plus the Agility 300i at $6490.
Both models feature the larger 16-inch front wheel to avoid being bumped out of line over city potholes.
They arrive as scooter sales have dipped 12.8% in the second quarter following a 14.1% drop in the first quarter after a promising rise of 5.6% last year.
KYMCO Australia spokesman Michael Poynton says their sales were “flat” over the past two quarters.
“We saw a drop-off in our entry-level models, commonly used for food delivery, however an increase in our mid-range commuting models,” he says.
The Agility City 125i 16+ features a 4-valve, EFI 125cc engine that meets Euro 4 standards.
It also comes with longer travel suspension including a twin rear shock for a smoother ride and front and rear hydraulic disc brakes in a new combined braking system.
Other highlights include a new ergonomically designed seat, larger under seat storage space, updated digital dashboard, 12 Volt charging outlet, new LED lights and a colour code top case as a standard feature.
It is available in Bright Blue.
The Agility 300i is powered by KYMCO’s 279cc EFI Euro 4 engine producing 17.1kW of power and 22.5NM of torque.
It also has front and rear hydraulic disc brakes and a Bosch ABS braking system.
Features include large under seat storage space with enough room for two full-face helmets and a wider seat with a wider backrest.
This scooter comes with Kymco’s recently introduced Noodoe interactive dashboard that connects a smart phone to the scooter.
It provides navigation, a customisable dash display and allows riders to share their ride through the Noodoe cloud – an online social community.
Additional features include a large windscreen and handle bar wind deflectors, all-LED lighting, keyless start technology and dual rear shock absorbers.
The Agility 300i is available in two colour schemes, Matte Silver or Dark Blue.
Both scooters come with KYMCO’s three-year factory warranty.
