First introduced in 2008, the Xciting 500Ri is the premier maxi-scooter in the Kymco line. It is known for its speed, low center of gravity, and improved braking and ABS. Sporty and fast, Xciting is designed to be sleek, with a smooth ride. Its swooped side panels, angular headlamp, and swept back windscreen are similar to other current maxi-scooter models. Built for power, it is meant to offer excitement at a more affordable price than the other leading brands in the field. Backed by its manufacturer’s name, the Xciting has a lot of expectations to live up to. Kymco is known to provide not only comfort and maneuverability, but a plethora of other accessories that make riding this machine a holistic experience. The Xciting offers more than other regular scooters by Kymco such as People. Aptly named, the Xciting comes with a range of features to offer utmost convenience to its rider. Its driver’s seat is well padded, and the suspension handles well on bumpy roads at lower speeds, with step-less acceleration from a standing start up to cruising speed, and passing power at highway speeds. It also features fully automatic transmission, four position brake levers, a hand parking brake, a rather sturdy center stand, and an integrated engine kill switch. These features put it up to par with most scooters in its range.
