Riding a motor scooter does not always mean that you must ride in the slow-lane on the highway. In 2009, the Taiwanese manufacturer Kymco released the Xciting maxi-scooter. This scooter is a nice mid-point between big, powerful motorcycles and tiny mopeds. The Xciting can save you big bucks on gas, but it is still legal to drive on interstate highways. If you want an extra vehicle to help conserve fuel while commuting to work, the Xciting maxi-scooter may be the perfect fit.
The 2009 Kymco Xciting is a great bike for people who want to save money but do not want to sacrifice comfort. The Xciting features adjustable handlebars, a low seat height, an adjustable backrest, and comfortable padding. Anyone can find a comfortable position on this motor scooter. Even taller, larger people will find riding the Xciting fairly comfortable, with its wide seat and broad floorboards.
Users should take note of a few precautions. Although this motor scooter provides more power than many others do, it is also heavier than some of the competition, weighing in at over 400 pounds. The extra weight means that making a mistake at 70 miles per hour can be fatal. Additionally, users should keep in mind that this is a scooter and not a motorcycle. Therefore, it handles a bit clumsily at highway speeds. Drivers should use plenty of common sense when operating the Kymco Xciting. It might not be the best choice for young or inexperienced drivers. The Kymco Xciting is mainly designed for commuting and touring, and it should be used mainly for these purposes.
