Kymco People 150 Review

Just As Cute As My Last Scoot

Just As Cute As My Last Scoot

I traded in my Kymco People 50 for this slightly bigger, but way faster Kymco People 150. Now I can keep up with traffic on my daily commute, and have great fun while riding it!

The new scoot has the same retro style and dependability as my previous Kymco, and is a head turner wherever I ride! My new scooter arrived as Bike Week was beginning here in Daytona.

After completing my motorcycle training class and obtaining my license, I did the "Main Street Crawl" for the first time. I got lots of hoots and thumbs up from the black leather clad biker set, and one guy yelled, "Don't go too fast on that thing, girlie!"

I'm really happy with this new scoot and would recommend it to anyone wanting a bigger faster ride.

Still Lovin' the 150
by: Nancy H

It's too bad Ellen has had a problem with her scooter. Kymco is a very reliable brand as you can see by the number of Kymcos used as rentals in the beach areas. If she bought her scooter new, it should be under warranty and the problem rectified with little trouble. Hope she gets back out there riding soon.

Problems too soon...
by: Ellen Zaslaw

It's a beautiful scooter and way enough fun to ride.

However, I already have a problem at 3,000 miles.

It was just in for it's first maintenance, other than that very first 500 mile check after I bought it and rode it for a few weeks.

I'm riding along at about 45 mph and the thing just cuts out and comes to a coast. It is very difficult to get it started, but I could for about a week of this happening. I figured I'd gotten some bad gas.

I have since ruled that out because I've got another full tank in there now from a different gas station and I use a very good additive to cut the ethanol problem.

Now, a week after the problem started, which was a few days after the tune up, the scooter will not start at all. In all, the thing
died on me about 20 times.

This last time, I had to walk the thing for miles to get it home and now I have to have it towed to my dealer where it will, most likely, be hung up for another week.

I find this unacceptable for a brand new scooter that is very well maintained, plus I am the only one who rides it.

The jury will be out as to whether I should have bought a Vespa or something equivalent. When they fix this, IF they fix it, and it does not become a recurring nightmare, everyone will be able to sleep peacefully. Otherwise this dealership will wish to God that they'd never met me, because I will make their life and business a living hell. I don't do well with incompetence and BS.

Good Scooter
by: Jim Zeiser

Paul Smith who writes The Scootin Fool Blog has a People 150. He put over 15,000 miles on his in just one year. They're a solid scooter and able to rack up loads of miles with a reasonable amount of maintenance. Living in Florida you'll be able to get in plenty of riding time.

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.

Read our review or go right to to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...
