Kymco People 150cc Scooter Review

by GC
(San Antonio, Texas)

Here is an initial review of the Kymco People 150 scooter that I currently own.

I love the stability of the larger 16 inch wheels, pickup is good, and the ride is compliant. Top speed with me on it (5'10"/195 lbs.) is about 65 mph.

Even though the 150 is highway legal, I would not venture out on a main highway as the bike does not have that extra power if needed in fast, heavy traffic. But anywhere else -- like highway access roads, city streets, etc. -- the 150 has plenty of power to spare and no problems in being able to get anywhere around San Antonio.

Other pros: This is a nimble scooter and reacts well. Gas mileage is very good, but the fuel tank gauge drops fast when one gets to the last 1/3 to 1/4 of a tank (like the People 250 I used to have).

And lastly, it looks good! With a least 5 color and combinations and that retro look, my wife and I literally get thumbs up, honks, and smiles while motoring and inquiries at stop lights every time we've gone out on these. She chose the white and green color scheme, while I opted for the cream and black.

I feel the same way about my Kymco People 150. I get admiring glances even from the hard core Harley riders, and also constant inquiries about my cool scoot. I have the green and white combo also, which was once a color for Fender Stratocasters, so is appreciated by guitar enthusiasts as well! Good luck with yours.

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.

ATTENTION! I have had to delete the Scooter Forum for this site, unfortunately. Despite my best efforts, I could not adequately prevent daily attacks by hackers and spammers. Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

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