Kymco's People models have always been big sellers, but this new version-which now incorporates the company's fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, SOHC, four-valve engine-offers enhanced power, efficiency and style. The 200i is a decent around-town machine, but the 300i-which replaces the People 250S-will take you farther, faster. It's an ideal commuter, especially if your routine includes some freeway miles. It also squirts off the line with more gusto than the 200, which not only makes it a hell of a lot more fun to ride, but also safer from stoplight to stoplight, as you'll be the vehicle overtaking traffic instead of being overtaken. Twenty-eight horsepower might not sound like a lot, but because the 300i is so lightweight (a claimed 378 lbs. wet), it moves very effectively. Agility is impressive, as is stability. Whether we were dicing around Charleston's beehive-like historic district or making up miles on the freeway, the People never felt the least bit squirrelly thanks to its sturdy 16-inch cast-aluminum wheels, solid cradle-type frame and adjustable twin shocks.
