Preview: Kymco on Eicma 2012
There are already two People bigger members in Kymco˘s line-up, the People Gti 300 and 200. The latter derives from the 300 scooter, featuring minor changes. The 125 variant which will be probably named Kymco People 125 Fi, will be presented at the Eicma motor show. It will not belong to the Gti family.
A 16” front wheel and a 14” rear wheel will be featured. The engine is single cylinder four stroke 125 c.c. fueled by injection, it could be air cooled. A new system will be introduced named DIS, (Drop Injection System), which will result to lower fuel consumption. That is expected very close or even less than 2 l/100 km (141 mpg Imperial) fuel consumption, according to the manufacturer.
Additionally two new scooters will be introduced, the E-Queen and E-Candy. These two scooters defer to performance and external dimensions. Their production is about to start. The E-Queen 3.0 is the bigger one, with greater external dimensions. A 3 KW (4.1 bhp) electric motor is equipped. The E-Candy 2.0 features a smaller 2 KW (2.7 bhp) engine, it will be cheaper and more agile.
The Kymco K-Pipe will be presented in two versions, 50 and 125 c.c.. Its air cooled, power output is 2 bhp for the 50cc engine and 8.2 bhp for the 125 c.c. variant. Probably the engine derives from the cub section of the line up since a four speed semi-automatic gearbox is equipped.
The dimensions of the wheels are 17 inches, a disc brake is featured at the front, a drum brake at the rear. The price of the K-Pipe is expected to be very low.
