Kymco Joins the Adventure Scooter Scene With the DT X360
The Kymco ADV Scooter Arrives
This bike was hinted at and discussed at length, but now the Taiwanese manufacturer Kymco has released its first adventure scooter in the DT X360. The bike is designed to be a do it all machine. A video of the motorcycle was posted by Kymco France.
Kymco says the bike is “easily maneuver in urban traffic, comfortably cruise on the freeway, or explore the uncharted,” according to RideApart.
While it’s clear what Kymco is going for with this ADV scooter, it’s also clear that this is no hardcore off-roader. The bike features only 14 and 13-inch wheels and it has a fairly long wheelbase and a lower ride height than you might expect from a bike that’s touted as an adventure bike.
Still, it comes with some dual-sport-ish tires, an easily manageable 428 pounds, and a 31.5-inch seat height. The bike also gets a 321cc single-cylinder engine that makes 28.2 hp and 22 lb-ft of torque. The scooter also gets traction control, LED lighting, large storage space under the seat that can swallow two helmets and more, some USB ports, and keyless ignition.
There are no prices announced at this time. I’d expect this bike to roll out in Europe and Asia. It’s unclear if it will come to North America.
