The Kymco Sento 50 has been on the foreign market for a long time, and it is one of Kymco's earlier scooter models. It wasn't introduced to the United States market until 2009, where it received some minor updates. While it uses the same engine as the older models, the 2009 model came with revisions to upscale and refine the retro look. As such, there came a price increase as well. This model weighs in at 183 pounds, which is much lighter than some of the competition and makes for easier maneuvering, especially when leaving a parking spot. However, the competition, Yamaha's Vino and Honda's Metropolitan, are a little bit lighter. The Sento 50 features a seat height of 31.9 inches, which is a bit tall for short riders and more reminiscent of a motorcycle than a 50-cc scooter. Additionally, the cockpit is a bit cramped, which causes a problem considering that the seat height requires long legs, but the cockpit is more suited for short legs. Knees are going to be cramped, making the Sento a bit uncomfortable, especially for longer rides.
