The Kymco KRV200 is a new scooter model unveiled by Kymco, one of the largest manufacturers of two-wheelers in the world. While Kymco primarily has a strong presence in the European market, the company aims to gain more traction in the small scooter segment with the KRV200.
The scooter features a relatively accessible seat height of 800mm and boasts an aggressive design. The front of the scooter stands out with full-LED split-style lamps, enhancing its overall appearance. The rear section of the bodywork incorporates cuts and creases, giving the scooter a strong appeal. The upward-swept exhaust also adds to the impression of speed even when the scooter is stationary.
Powering the Kymco KRV200 is a 175cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-valve engine. This engine produces 17bhp of power and 15.6Nm of torque. The scooter has a claimed top speed of 107kmph and a fuel efficiency of 33kmpl.
In terms of hardware, the KRV200 is equipped with disc brakes on both ends, accompanied by ABS, for enhanced safety. It features telescopic forks at the front and a single shock at the rear, providing adequate damping.
