X-Town is the Euro 4 evolution of Kymco’s fantastic Downtown model. It will be available as both a 125cc and 300cc when it arrives in dealers in April. We loved the Downtown but there have been some significant changes to turn it into the X-Town…
The bodywork has been redesigned so it’s now noticeably slimmer, more angular and has sharper lines, giving it a modern look. The redesigned chassis and bodywork have allowed increased storage space too, it’s claimed to fit two full-face helmets beneath the generous seat.
It also boasts new alloy wheels and an LCD dashboard with distinctive white facia. The scooter also has plenty of chrome detailing, a leather seat, aggressive looking LED headlights and a new very noticeable ‘X’ LED taillight.
The liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engines meet Euro 4 and give a true 125cc – or 276cc for the 300 model – with top speeds of 65mph and 75mph respectively.
Braking on the 125cc is CBS – Combined Braking System – whilst the 300 sports Bosch ABS.
The X-Town 125i CBS and X-Town 300i ABS are available to order from Kymco dealers, with the 125c coming in a Mercury colour-way and the 300cc in Matt Black. Ian Kidson from Kymco UK said “We’ve chosen stylish dark colours for the UK market as they look stunning against the chrome details and the LED lighting.”
Ian added “The world of maxi-scooters keeps evolving in line with the latest designs, technological advancements and crucially European legislation. For KYMCO, as a world-leader in scooter design, the latest Euro IV legislation presented an opportunity to create a new generation of maxi-scooters – and with the X-Town 125i and 300i they’ve gone one step further in terms of design quality, performance and rider comfort.”
As with all Kymco machines, the X-Town comes with a 2-year manufacturers’ warranty.
Prices are £3699 (125cc) and £4599 (300cc).
