The Taiwanese Kymco Super 8 motor scooter was released for the first time in 2009 as an eventual replacement for the extremely popular Super 9 scooter. The Super 8 lives up to the Kymco reputation as a leader in the motor scooter world. Despite the low price tag of the Super 8, this scooter proves itself as a top competitor for more expensive and complicated machines. Although this machine does not have many of the little luxurious touches that other fancier scooters may have, the substantial difference in cost will make the Super 8 an appealing vehicle for those just getting started in riding. Kymco made this model available with either a 50cc motor or 150cc motor.
The Super 8 rolled off the line with an exciting, sporty look. This model is available in three eye-catching color combinations with bold graphics and aggressive styling. The Kymco Super 8 also seems to have been designed with the slightly larger rider in mind. The seat is a little wider than many other scooters, and the handlebars are a bit further away from the center of the bike.
Kymco's 150 cc Super 8 motor allows drivers to reach speeds of up to 55 to 60 miles per hour, depending on the weight of the rider. Although it takes the scooter some time to reach these speeds, it has no trouble maintaining them on level road. Many owners enjoy tinkering with their Super 8s, de-restricting the motors to allow their scooters to reach speeds of up to 70 miles per hour. Parts and kits are readily available for owners who are determined to get maximum performance and speed from their Kymco Super 8 motor scooters.
