Kymco New Many125 Is Created for Urban Beauties
Now product segmentation is very complete in the motorcycle market, such as small daily commuting scooters, race-aping scooters, ADV scooters, etc. The most common models are 125cc scooters.
Early last year, Kymco released three blockbuster products, namely the S350, the CKD version AK550 and the New Many125 imported from Taiwan. At that time, the New Many125 was sold at a price equivalent to RMB18,800 in Taiwan, but the imported product price was only RMB16,880. The pricing delighted and puzzled many scooter fans. That was the original pricing Kymco set for the New Many125 CKD version, and over 300 units were introduced from Taiwan to the Mainland market. The New Many125 products currently on sale are all the CKD version.
The New Many125 is of the Italian style with artistic and retro flavor. It has a rounded shaped compact body, simple lines and painting. Simple and round features the entire body. The front face is still a minimalist style, LED daily running lights are on all the time, and the turn lights are well integrated with the body. A a round headlight, round chrome-plated mirrors and brown-red leather seat cushion, all those factors make a cute scooter
It has a body size of 1710*671*1070mm, wheelbase of 1195mm, ground clearance of 120mm, and a curb weight of 103kg. A 150cm rider can easily touch the ground. Its ground clearance is relatively high among scooters of the same level.
The U-shaped daily running light is always on, and the round headlight is automatically turned on when the scooter is started, which is a good design for the users who often forget to turn on the light. The taillights are also LED and have a diffused design that improves nighttime visibility, but the turn lights are halogen bulbs.
The instrument panel is a digital LCD, displaying complete riding data as well as turn signal, ABS indicator, engine indicator, fuel level and time. It should be mentioned here that the New Many125 has the same turn signal prompt tone as a car.
The handlebar buttons are textured and very cute, with smooth operation.The overtaking light is a plus. The handlebar may be a little short for boys with big hands.
The New Many125’s fuel tank capacity is 5.5L. The preposed fuel tank is more convenient for refueling, saves more space, and most importantly results in a more coordinated weight distribution.
The New Many125 is equipped with Continental dual-channel ABS. Moreover, it adopts ventilated disc brake with large discs and double callipers, so that braking is more sensitive and safer.

The front storage box is large enough for a pair of gloves when a bottle of mineral water is put inside, and a flat area is designed for mobile phones, power banks and so on. It seems that this flat design is also related to the USB interface. The New Many125 has a USB interface near the keyhole, and the USB interface has a power indicator. Moreover, the New Many125 provides two hidden hooks, respectively next to the key hole and in front of the cushion, convenient and practical. The rear mud guard adopts double fender design, which can better prevent mud and water in rainy days to better protect the wiring harness.
