Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Tai­wanese mo­tor­cy­cle man­u­fac­tur­ers Kymco have long been known for their great-value scoot­ers and now they’re re­leas­ing an­other in the UK: the mem­o­rably named City Plus 125i CBS. So, what’s new?

Well first and fore­most the City Plus has a new fuel-in­jected 125cc engine that is now Euro4 com­pli­ant, but which Kymco say still de­liv­ers 100mpg and a re­spectable top speed of 65mph. There are big changes in the han­dling de­part­ment too, with a 14in rear wheel and longer travel sus­pen­sion to help the bike cope with our ter­ri­ble roads. The brakes are now linked front and rear for bet­ter con­trol, too. Kymco have also re­designed the sad­dle, which they say makes it more com­fort­able while in­creas­ing the un­der­seat stor­age area at the same time. The new stor­age area also now hosts a 12v out­let for charg­ing phones and other giz­mos. The fuel cap has also been repo­si­tioned at the front of the bike to make filling up a lit­tle eas­ier.

The City Plus has also had a visual makeover with a more an­gu­lar de­sign, LED lights and up­dated dig­i­tal dash. The Kymco City Plus 125i is avail­able for £2199 and it even comes with a two-year, un­lim­ited mileage war­ranty.
