Can you ride a kymco agility 125cc scooter on the freeway?

Is it safe to ride a Kymco Agility 125 on the freeway?

Answer: I'll be short & direct: No, not in my opinion. I drive a 125cc scooter & I wouldn't dream of taking it on the freeway. First off, that engine size really can't sustain the high speeds required on a freeway just to keep up with traffic. I know the Kymco website claims it can go up to 65MPH, but I'm wondering about the accuracy of that claim, given my experience with that size engine.

Secondly, 125cc scooters generally have fairly small tires, and that affects your stability in high winds and at high speeds, both of which you can experience on a high speed highway. I know I wouldn't want to weather being passed by a semi going 65 to 70MPH!

But others here may have a different opinion on this issue, so come on, guys and gals, weigh in...

This Kymco agility 125cc scooter is a nice and peaceful little scooter good for short distance and daily activities. But I totally agree that it can't go on high speed. You know in proofreading service, scooters are a big and demanded upcoming topic of discussion. In which sectors, Scotty and bikes and their models are discussed in detail.

Maybe? NEW
by: John

It seems in your state the agility is illegal on the freeway, but I believe in Michigan a 125cc is freeway legal.I have an Eton Sport 50 which is about the same weight and physical size as the agility 125. I frequently ride my 33mph scooter on the road shouldler in 55mph rural traffic.The only semis that really scare me and blow me around are the double trailer gravel haulers...when you see one coming hold on tight on any scooter.If my intention was to frequently ride on the freeway, I would atleast get a 250 of some sort. For a quick jaunt on a sleepy sunday morning where I had no pressure to get somewhere on time, yes, I think it would be fun to see what a 125 scooter could do. Even if you were to buy a 150 I don't think it would make much difference in top speed over a 125. But if you are determined to go to a 125 or 150 and ride on the freeway frequently, stay away from anything with 10 inch tires, please.

Illegal too NEW
by: PorscheLeigh

There's certain CC< requirements (Illinois) but maybe nationwide. 125CC is dangerously low for highways... the body is too lightweight too. That one comment is right: next to an 18 wheeler?

Other Reason No NEW

In California the minimum size allowed for a motorcycle on the freeway is 150cc. The Agility 125 falls just a few centimeters short.

Do not ride a 125cc on a freeway NEW
by: Bill

Too slow, poor high speed handling, poor response to bumps, potholes, etc. Use the 125cc on roads with speeds less than 45 mph.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.
