Since 1992, the Taiwanese company Kymco has offered reliable, attractive scooters to consumers at excellent prices. Because the Kymco company uses Honda-inspired designs in their scooter engines, replacement parts, accessories, and alteration kits are easy to find and surprisingly inexpensive. Kymco scooters are fuel efficient and comfortable enough for daily commuting, but they are also a fun ride for touring the countryside on the weekends. Kymco scooters are low-maintenance, and since they are simply designed, owners report that they have no difficulty modifying them to improve performance. The Kymco Xciting was the first maxi-scooter that the Kymco company added to its lineup. The Xciting is still the flagship maxi-scooter model that Kymco sells in North America.
