2009 KYMCO Sting

2009 KYMCO Sting 50


Those who are searching for a vintage-styled motor scooter but do not have the budget for a Vespa may want to consider checking out a 2009 Kymco Sting motor scooter. The Kymco Sting is available in several tasteful color schemes and has a look reminiscent of the classic, post-World-War-II, Italian scooters.

The 2009 Sting features Kymco's dependable, time-tested engine technology to ensure that owners will not be disappointed any time that they are ready to ride. While the engine is the typical two-stroke engine that Kymco uses in all of its small scooters, owners have found that the standard engine restrictions are easily circumvented. An unmodified scooter right from the factory can only reach up to 40 miles per hour. However, after a little tinkering, owners have been able to cruise at speeds of around 45 to 50 miles per hour. The two-stroke engine gives the 2009 Kymco Sting more power, but it also uses a bit more fuel than a four-stroke engine.

The Sting is a relatively tall motor scooter when compared to other similar types. The elevated seat height is a good thing for taller riders, but it could be a real problem for shorter people. Additionally, the Kymco Sting is somewhat heavier than many other small scooters, which could be another possible negative for those with smaller physiques. However, broad, tall people may find that the Kymco Sting is a perfect fit with a comfortably padded seat and roomy floorboards.
