First Look Of LIFAN’s Light Off-Road Scooter
More and more crossover scooters have entered the motorcycle market, such as cub scooters and ADV scooters. When it comes to scooters with ADV genes, the Honda X-ADV is definitely the most eye-catching model, and it has completely overturned the traditional perception of a scooter. The domestic well-known brand LIFAN is to roll out a new crossover ADV scooter—LIFAN KPV150.
Created by a European team, LIFAN KPV150 has smooth, tight and sharp body lines. Although it takes on the impression of Honda X-ADV, the overall modeling is highly recognizable.
LED lamps and LCD meter are the mainstream configuration. The common front and rear disc brakes are matched with standard ABS to provide good braking effect. It has front inverted and rear central shock absorbers that are comfortably adjusted. In addition, the scooter is provided with all-terrain multi-function vacuum tires, ensuring the off-road and adventure functions.
KPV150 adopts a new single-cylinder water-cooled EFI engine developed by LIFAN, with a displacement of 150cc, a maximum power of 8.46KW (11.5hp), and a maximum torque of 11.0N•m.
KPV150 has a 125kg curb weight, a 760mm high seat with one-piece cushion. There is plenty of space (with illuminating lamps in it) under the saddle due to the pre-positioned fuel tank. There is interface reserved to fasten three boxes. The front inverted and rear adjustable central shock absorbers, together with the 12L fuel tank, make the scooter suitable for daily transportation and short trips.
It adopts front 100/80-14 and rear 120/70-14 CHENG SHIN all-terrain tires. With a larger ground clearance, this crossover scooter is bound to have better passing ability.
In addition, LIFAN KPV150 weighs 125kg and has a wheelbase of 1,310mm. The foot pedal is similar to that on big scooters on the market. LIFAN KPV150’s appearance really captures the hearts of many crossover scooter fans.
As the first crossover ADV scooter in China, KPV150 perfectly inherits the essence of Honda X-ADV in appearance. The exact time to market is not yet announced. However, it may become a star model in the domestic market.(Source: WeChat: VOGE-MOTOR)
