2007 Kymco Vitality Review


The 2007 Kymco Vitality is a basic, entry-level scooter that Taiwanese manufacturer Kwang Yang Motor Co, Ltd. (Kymco) for the 2007 model year. With a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $2,199, Kymco designed and marketed the bike as a comfortable and stylish machine. Since the Vitality scooter made its debut in 2006, the 2007 version marks the nameplate’s second model year.

The 2007 Kymco Vitality is officially referred to as the Kymco Vitality 504T. The suffix refers to its engine, which is a four-stroke single-cylinder unit. While the number ""4"" comes from the number of strokes, the number ""50"" is derived from the engine displacement, which is measured at 49 cubic centimeters (rounded up to 50). Thus, the 2007 Kymco Vitality is classified as a 50cc scooter.

Kymco integrates an air cooler to each 2007 Vitality engine to cool down the unit’s hot parts. The air-cooler feature is for preventing overheating, which can lead to engine malfunction. A Keihin carburetor and an electric ignition with kick-start back-up are for facilitating rapid engine start-up – essential for cold weather days. The muffler on each scooter possesses exhaust catalyst technology, which effectively reduces air pollution. The bore and stroke of the engine on each 2007 Kymco Vitality is 1.54 by 1.63 inches, or 39 by 41.4 millimeters.

Paired with each 2007 Kymco Vitality engine is a continuously variable transmission, which is also referred to as a CVT. With its ability to select any of an unlimited supply of effective gear ratios, the CVT is unique among transmissions in that it greatly improves engine efficiency. This leads to a remarkable improvement of fuel efficiency. With its fuel tank able to hold up to 1.3 gallons (4.9 liters), the 2007 Vitality can provide a fuel economy of 87 miles per gallon.

The 2007 Kymco Vitality is available as a red or blue scooter. Standard on each scooter are rearview mirrors for improved visibility when driving; halogen headlights for superior exterior lighting; exhaust guard for occupant’s protection from the exhaust heat; and rear rack, under-seat, and helmet storage. Also, Kymco provides a front dash that includes an analog speedometer, odometer, fuel gauge, and low oil indicator light. The seat, set at a height of 31 inches, is a one-piece vinyl unit big enough to accommodate just the driver, and no additional occupants. The bike uses a plastic-covered steel frame construction for sturdiness and aesthetic feel. A front-disc rear-drum layout constitutes the bike’s braking system. Each 2007 Vitality rides on 12-inch aluminum wheels and tubed tires.

Physical dimensions of the 2007 Kymco Vitality consist of a 74-inch length, 28-inch width, and 44-inch height, with a wheelbase of around 51 inches. The scooter weighs around 214 lbs.
