An entry-level scooter with a high-quality build at a highly competitive price compared to similar vehicles on the market, the 2011 Kymco Agility is available in two models, the 50 and the 125. A 49-cc, one-cylinder, four-stroke engine is fitted on the 125, and the Agility 50 is powered by a 125-cc, one-cylinder, four-stroke engine. Its clean four-stroke engine and good fuel economy, at 87 mpg for the Agility 50 and 70 mpg for the 125, is another great feature of this scooter and appeals to those in search of a trendy, green alternative for transportation. Fuel economy can get better in a scooter, though for one without fuel injection it gets pretty decent figures. The same air cooled, four-stroke motors Kymco has been using in the scooters since the mid-nineties, they are basic, no-frills engines that work well for everyday driving and give a reliable performance.
Its design has a modern flair to it with sporty details that appeal to younger buyers. The Kymco Agility is available in a choice of three appealing body colors, red, silver, and blue. A large fashionable headlight and angular design details augment the Agility’s visual appeal. The Agility includes a convenient passenger or buddy seat that can be folded up to serve as a backrest for the driver. A compact and zippy scooter, the Agility includes a fair amount of under-seat storage as well. Both models of the Kymco Agility have been offered in the United States since 2007 and continue to be manufactured and sold to this day. The vehicle’s cost is considerably low compared to its competitors, which helps to set it apart from the rest. In Canada, the higher end Agility City 50 models feature more accessories and appeal to a different segment of the market, whereas the American counterparts are mainly focused on economy and practicality.
Buyers in search of an economical ride with modern styling will like the Agility 50 and 125 scooters. Those who are new to buying a scooter and are looking for a practical, everyday ride with great basic features and performance should look no further than the affordable Agility. It delivers a reliable and fun riding experience and looks good zipping around town. Its major competitors can match the ride quality though not the low cost of the Kymco Agility. Those looking for more features or power might look for a scooter with fuel injection or practical accessories such as a glove box, two items sorely missed in the Agility.
