Kymco People 50 Motor Scooter Review

Cute Scoot!

Cute Scoot!

I have wanted a Vespa since I was 14 years old, and we won't say how long ago that was! I bought the People 50 two years ago and love it. It has that retro styling of the old scooters but with all the modern technology. KYMCO is a well established brand, and I like the fact that it came with a warranty.

I feel confident riding it, as it is reliable, and very stable due to the 16" wheels. The only drawback I have found, is the top speed of 30 MPH. I had planned on using it to commute, but when cars around you are doing 60 in a 50 MPH zone, I get a bit paranoid as they creep up behind me. So, today, I ordered the People 150 and am trading in my cute little 50.

I know I will enjoy this new one as much, as it is just as sporty and stylish but with more power.

Kymco people is faster than 30
by: Anonymous

I own a Kymco People 50 and it's great. It's a blast. It does like 45, contrary to what was written here. But I usually cruise it at 40... no prob, it's a great 2 stroke scooter that's fun to ride and good on gas.

Gone to 250
by: Anonymous

You should haeve gone to the 250. I fond myself regrettign not going all the way to a street legal bike. When one trades or sell , we loose money, lots. But I understand the caution, I went for a 125 thinking that if did not like riding that much I coudl ger rid of it easily, What I found out is, I wan to rid emore and better, so the best would have been 150 or 250. It's better to have more power if you need it and the more powerful would command more money on a resale, or loose less proportionally. ---And be more attractive to men, the mor eriders there are. A $1000 loss on a $5000 is better than $1000 loss on $3000 bike.

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.
