Review of Kymco Agility 50 Scooter

by Toby Clark
(Paris, France.)

I got my Kymco Agility scooter brand new in January of this year.(4 months ago) and so far it has performed generally well. It's my first moped so I have no basis for comparison. Also, it is license free here in France, so I have had no training on how to use a scooter at all.


In the colder weather of the early parts of the year, it took some time to get started and often stopped while stationary. Now that Spring has arrived it starts up nicely every time. Apart from that I have had no problems so far. It takes some time to get up to full speed but I would imagine that is true of most 50cc bikes.

The storage space under the seat only just holds my XL full face helmet. If you've got a XXL or bigger I doubt you will get it in there. The folding rear seat can be a bit tricky which is annoying because you need to lift it to get to the petrol cap.

As a tall man (6ft4 or 193cm) It is hard to steer on corners, but if there is no passenger on the back then there is not a problem as I can just sit further back.

I have considered buying new mirrors as it is next to impossible to see anything other than my shoulders or the pavement(sidewalk) on the other side of the road. But I have broad shoulders.

On the whole, I am pleased with this moped. It rides nice and easily. It doesn't look too ridiculous and it hasn't been costing me too much to run it. I have only spent about 14€ so far. That's around 18-20 US Dollars and I have almost reached 300km (186ish miles) in a town full of stop signs, traffic lights and speed bumps, which obviously has an adverse effect on the fuel consumption.

7/10 (again, no basis for comparison)

License NEW
by: Penny

I was very surprised to read that your Kymco Agility 50 was "license free here in France". I ride a Kymco Agility 50 Carry in Italy, but as a Dutch citizen obtained my European AM driving license in The Netherlands, also on an Agility 50, with a recognised driving school. I was very grateful for this extremely useful scooter driving course and subsequent theory and practice test.

I thought there was a common EU standard on driving licenses. Mine has an EU symbol plus "NL". Isn't that required in France?

Of course all those lovely licensed car drivers in Europe are automatically licensed for motorcycles below 250 cc. Are you perhaps one of those?

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.
