KYMCO RELEASES A NEW 125CC SCOOTER WITH ABS AND TCS
China – Kymco recently released its new scooter VJR125, which is available in a standard version and a premium version equipped with TCS, priced at NT$82,000 and NT$91,000 respectively.
The most outstanding part about this entry-level new scooter is that Kymco has equipped it with ABS and TCS. With such configuration, it should gain the upper hand compared with other 125cc models that still use drum brakes and CBS.
The VJR125 officially appeared in 2015. On this updated 2022 version, the engine is also upgraded to the 4-valve air-cooled engine, which delivers 10.4ps of maximum power, with and a 0-100m acceleration of 8.51 seconds.
The suspension is the SSC horizontal suspension system with better handling and comfort. The braking system has standard front and rear 180mm discs and ABS. The front brake is enhanced by double-piston calipers. The TCS version also uses better-performance metal brake hose.
The other big change of the new VJR125 is a new appearance. It has a sharp V-shaped front face, long and narrow indicators, LED headlight and LED taillight bar. The revamped model also has a new 4.5-inch high-contrast LCD meter. Other features include USB charging outlet, 20.6L under-seat space and comfortable non-slip cushion. The seat height is 750mm, and the curb weight is 106kg.
The new VJR 125 is available in dark, white and blue. It mainly targets young users. Better configurations come with a higher price. Is it too much for a 125cc model to have TCS?
