2010 KYMCO Super 8 50

Intro

Taiwan’s largest scooter manufacturer, Kwang Yang Motor Co., introduced its Super 8 motor scooters to the United States in 2009 and to Canada in 2010. The Super 8 replaced the older Super 9. The Super 8 comes in two models: 50 cc and 150 cc. Colors for both are the same: red/black, green/black, and yellow/blue. The 150 cc weighs 25 pounds more and accelerates faster than the 50 cc. The 50 has a top speed of 40 mph, while the 150 can be pushed to speeds nearing 70 mph, just barely making it drivable on freeways. Gas mileage, using regular fuel, is 95 mpg for both models for combined city and highway driving. Some riders wish the tank held more than 1.3 gallons.

With its sporty look and dependability, the Super 8 is winning fans across the United States. One place it stands out is in the auto-racing world. The Super 8 is the official pit bike for the Indy and National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) races. The design is sleek, shiny, and smooth, with a sloped front end that will appeal to riders who want to stand out from the crowd. This is one sexy scooter! The Super 8 offers the best riding on city streets, though the Super 8 150 can manage non-freeway highways with ease. Riders praise the Super 8‘s braking system, noting that the combination of the front disc and back drum brakes make it possible to ""stop on a dime.""

The dashboard is trim, with gauges placed conveniently in the middle. The panel includes an easy-to-read speedometer, fuel gauge, and digital clock. The one-piece vinyl seat is big enough for two normal-sized people; the under-seat storage will hold a standard helmet. A helmet hook is included in the front panel. The seat is high enough that it can accommodate a long-legged rider in comfort. The scooter comes with a mini-metric tool kit that takes up little room in the under-seat storage compartment but is handy to have on hand in case of emergency. The scooter has electric- and kick-starts, a center stand, and adjustable passenger footpegs. The turn signals and horn are on the left hand grip, while headlights are on the right grip.
