Introduced to the United States in 2006, Kymco, an acronym for Taiwan's Kwang Yang Motor Company, has put together a dependable little scooter in the Agility. While targeted toward beginning riders, the Agility 50 also would make a good scooter for those who just want to ride around town to work, school, or on errands, but is not made for highway driving as it has a top speed of less than 40 mph. Unlike Kymco’s Like line with its retro looks, the Agility’s styling is totally modern, with a sleek sloping front end and plastic seat bases that slant uphill. The 2010 Agility also comes in a 125 cc model that has a top speed of about 65 mph, making it suitable for highways, though not freeways. The Agility has a seat heat of 31 inches, which should work well for short and tall riders. It is capable of carrying a passenger on the thickly padded two-piece seat. One unique feature about the vinyl seat is its ability to transform itself into a backrest for the rider when there is no passenger. The sporty-looking scooter features sturdy pegs and a grab rail for the passenger.
KymcoUSA calls the Agility ""a compact, nimble little scooter"" that has plenty of lockable under-seat storage. The Agility is made in China in a certified factory for Kymco, Taiwan’s largest scooter manufacturer. The scooter giant says the quiet four-stroke 49 cc engine is a plus. Owners say the scooter is dependable and relatively problem free. Owners who report problems have usually tinkered with how the scooter runs in efforts to make it go faster.
The Agility 125 is pretty much the same as the 50, but with more horsepower allowing it to go faster. The trade-off is in gas mileage. Agility 125 Riders will get about 20 mpg less than the 50 riders; the 125 also has a smaller gas tank, 1.3 gallons, compared to 1.59 gallons for the 50. Both models come in red, blue, and silver, and have a two-year manufacturer’s warranty. The Agility has electric- and kick- starts, steering lock, and center and kick stands. The instrument panel has the standard speedometer, odometer and fuel gauge.
