KYMCO AGILITY 50 / 125
The Agility series of scooters features modern and sporty looks, clean burning 4-stroke engines and unbelievably low MSRPs. Both 50cc and 125cc models were originally introduced for 2007 in the USA and they continue to both be sold in America as of 2016. These scooters have a nice somewhat sporty look that could be considered a replacement for the Vitality 50. These Agility scooters were never sold in Canada, although Canadians are offered the higher end Agility City 50 starting in 2012 which is discussed separately.
In Canada the Agility isn’t quite as focused on being as cheap as possible, but rather it’s a more fully featured scooter with larger wheels, a bundle of nice upgrades and a commensurately higher MSRP.
Both Agility models use the standard air cooled 4-stroke motors that Kymco has been using in their small and mid-sized scooters since the 90’s. These motors are fairly basic engines (2-valves, air cooled, carb’d) and they perform well. Fuel economy isn’t class leading but it’s respectable at 80-90mpg for the 50cc and around 70mpg for the 125. The older engine technology is basically the trade off that you make in exchange for a super low purchase price. The MSRP for the Agility 50 is a mind-blowing $1499 (Now $1599 for 2013) and the 150cc model is just $1899. Besides a Chinese scooter, no one else comes close to this price, so if you are on a budget and you’re digging the Agility then just go order one now.
Storage & Convenience
One neat feature found in the USA market Agility scooters is a small passenger/buddy seat that can fold into an upright position to serve as a backrest for the driver. The only other scooter that uses a similar concept is Honda’s Big Ruckus. The Agility’s backrest is a bit small to provide full back support, but it’s still an appreciated comfort aid.
Kymco left out a glovebox on the Agility 50 and 125 scooters, but they did include a moderate amount of underseat storage which is quite appreciated.
The underseat storage area can accommodate some full face helmets but not the larger ones. Kymco also equipped both 50cc and 125cc models with a front disc brake which is a often lacking on scooters costing 50% more. The difference in cost to the manufacturer between a disc brake and drum brake is only a few dollars and it provides superior stopping and safety for the life of the vehicle, so it’s great to see one included.
The Agility scooters are a good choice for quite a few buyers. Anyone looking for a value priced modern styled scooter will find these scooters to be nice reliable rides. Some of the main competitors are Yamaha’s Zuma/BWS 50 and 125cc models, Honda’s PCX 125 and Piaggio’s Typhoon 50 and 125. None of these competing scooters offer pricing as low as the Agility, so budget buyers needn’t look further. Scooterists looking for a more fully featured and higher end scooter might want to look at a ride offering fuel injection (better MPG, more power and easier starting) and larger set of features like a glovebox.
