Have you added the Kymco Like 150i to this forum yet? If not do so, as I got a 2018 Kymco Like 150i for Christmas and it is an honest to God 65 mile an hour scooter and made the Kymco Like 200 disappear as it out runs it. I have over 4000 miles on mine so far and it is a blast.

Long time no read Bear. Nice to see your still up and riding. I've yet to see a Like 150 in the flesh yet. how comfortable is she on the road?
I believe the engine is the same one that's in my Movie but with the fuel injection I wanted. My engine is limited to 9500rpm which is good for 107KPH/66MPH

Yeah, my Kymco Like 150, overhead cam, EFI engine is good for 66 mph and that is in pure stock condition with a windshield which slowed it down but I don't know how much as the windshield went on before break in was over. I am still around but have had open heart surgery plus several other surgeries but I am still hitting the street at 72 years old.

The Like 150 is great on the road; corners well and goes like lightning on the straights.

Yeah, I think the Kymco Like 150i has been overlooked at MotorscooterGuide.net and everywhere else. Kymco needs to market this model at least with some effort. It's difficult to find much US-based activity for this model.

1) In the class of 2018 51-169cc scooters, it is second only to the SMAX in terms of horsepower. 13.7hp vs 15.2hp
To give you an idea, this is more than the PCX 150 (13.4hp), Grom (9.7hp), Z125 (9.5hp), Kymco Spade 150 (11.9hp), Hooligan (11hp), Zuma 125 (9.5hp), Super 8 (10.5hp), etc.
2) It has ABS front and rear disc brakes STOCK.
3) In the class of 51-169cc scooters, it has highest horsepower to weight ratio. (dry weight, until I can verify wet or curb weight)
4) It probably has more built-in storage than most of the above, although I haven't plugged the numbers yet.
5) $2600-3000 MSRP for 2020

I now have over 9000 miles on my Kymco Like 150i which I got at Christmas and it is still running great except for a short time with the plug wire coming off the plug as you ride. I really sucked there for a short while until the service department got their sxxx together.

You got it Xmas of 2017? That makes more sense than just christmas. 9000 miles in 9 months on a 150cc scooter is a bit of a stretch. :D

Not even a stretch but a fact. I ride everyday it isn't raining and started at Christmas 2018 and am still at it. Have 9065 miles on it today but I got rained on twice today on the way home. Sometimes life sucks but rarely for me anymore.

I rode again today as it wasn't raining and now have 9300 miles on the scooter and it ran perfect too. So this many miles isn't all that many when you looked at the big picture.
