Billed as the ultimate city scooter KYMCO’s new Agility 16+ brings a practical layout and confidence inspiring ride.
Built for inner-city riders by the Taiwanese manufacturer the focus from the start has been on creating a scooter with practical features. These include expansive lockable storage courtesy of the included top case, under seat area and front glove box compartment.
That same glove box compartment conceals a 12V DC outlet capable of recharging electronic devices on the go.
Additional features include an effortless centre stand to make parking simple, a steering lock to deter theft and room to carry a pillion passenger.
The attention to city requirements doesn’t end with the practical layout.
“We wanted Agility 16+ 200i to be stable and confident in its handling but agile enough to easily out manoeuvre the obstacles of day-to-day life,” said a KYMCO spokesman. “The larger 16-inch front wheel, fresh suspension configuration and disc brakes really knocks that criteria out of the ball-park.”
The new model gets the same proven four-stroke, fuel-injected 163cc engine as its retro styled cousin, the Like 200i.
The engine is coupled to a simple twist and go transmission and its fuel injection has been carefully mapped to maintain consistent economy yet still spring to life when escaping traffic.
Agility 16+ delivers standout styling with a sharp, clean urban design that features an integrated lighting layout, cut-off front screen and ten-spoke wheels.
The design is available in a choice of three colours and also accommodates a flat floorboard and wide front fairing to provide riders protection against any weather.
