Kymco continues its winning streak with the 2013 Super 8. Chosen as the pit cycle for several IndyCar and NHRA teams, Kymco’s Super 8 50 sports race inspired, two-tone paint, and graphics over aggressive body lines that speak of speed and agility.
From its inception in 2011, the Kymco Super 8s have provided riders a fast and fresh alternative to the ""plain old scooter."" The Super 8 50’s heart is a newly refined, 49cc, two-Stroke engine, with electric and kick start. With an estimated 80 miles per gallon fuel economy and a 1.32 gallon fuel tank, the Super 8 can carry you with performance as well as style. The limited two year factory warranty will carry you even further.
The Kymco Super 8 50 2T is not an entry level, bare-bones bike. Controls and ride are smooth and responsive, and the economic 49cc motor provides good power, even as it sips fuel from the large tank. Fit and finish are head and shoulders above less expensive cycles, and performance exhaust system makes a powerful audio statement as well. The Kymco Super 8 has all the regular features one expects from a high-end scooter: handle bar mounted mirrors, fared-in indicators, headlights, as well as lighted license plates mounts, and under-the-saddle cargo area, but all these items are built into an eye catching design that successfully mates form with function. The front fairing deflects wind, as well as housing the twin headlamps, and turn indicators, in a smooth, stylish, shell. Other amenities include flip-out pegs for pillion position passenger, horn, digital clock, side and center cycle stands, and a n ignition key controlled, locking handle bar for security when parked. Aluminum wheels are a nice step-up from the stamped steel wheels found on less expensive 50cc bikes. Oil and fuel tanks are under the vinyl saddle, along with a small cargo area. Kymco offers several hard shell cargo cases by accessory maker Shad, should riders wish to increase their carrying capacity.
The Shad cases are engineered to the same degree of quality and style found in the Kymco scooter, so you can be assured of seamless integration. These cargo cases will permit on board stowing of full-face helmets, and like-sized items.
The race-inspired exterior design includes bold, high contrast, paintwork, and racing numbers. Eye catching, painted plastic panels and rugged powder-coated frames will provide years of service while protecting your investment from the elements.
The 2012 Kymco Super 8 50 2T comes standard with front disc and rear drum brakes, along with fourteen-inch lightweight, cast-aluminum alloy wheels and a reliable constant velocity automatic transmission for smooth rides and sure stops. The Super 8 also features a performance exhaust package that enhances the look and sound of the bike.
Available in three eye-catching color combinations; Red/White, Blue/White, and Black/Silver; the Kymco really is ""Super"".
