Kymco Downtown 300i ABS

Discussion in 'Scooters' started by Voz, Aug 31, 2012.

  1. Looking for a scoot for my daughter, she has never ridden before and I wanted to get her something with ABS. Not much choice but this Kymco looks the goods.

    Used examples around now for about $5K. Even new ones being sold in WA for $6K ride away.

    I am also attracted to it as it only weighs in at about 170Kg and has had rave reviews.

    Anyone have any experience with this scoot?

  2. Personally I prefer SYM to Kymco but Kymco doesn't have a bad reputation. I'm afraid I'm not familiar with that 300 either though.
  3. Pass the popcorn mate, slow thread this one.
  4. Yeah, had a look around at the other scoot forums, not too much info there.

    This bike was scooter of the year in the USA in 2010, has some excellent writeups all over the world.

    Negotiating on a used one now in the $4.5K range, damn cheap for what you get, 300cc, comfortable, light-ish and ABS, cheers.
