A neighbour came home with a K Pipe (Kymco) he is going to sort it out for his daughter. It has a 125 fitted at the moment and he said the original 50 was in a box ,the box had a 107 cc fully auto engine in it ,has any one seen one of these and what are they like ? no markings on the engine .And I may buy the 125 :)

Slow and underpowered apparently, See YouTube for the shootout against the grom and the Kawasaki,

My usual dealership (Alpha Southend) had one in a metallic green colour for a long time. Kept getting cheaper in price but just constantly wheeled back and forth onto the forecourt.

I thought about it but that's as far as it got until eventually it sold??

Aware of Kymco quality now, likely have been a good buy.

I was looking at buying one for a laugh about three years ago.

Infuriatingly, the chap selling it (who was keeping it for me....) sold it a day before I was coming to get it..

Luckily, I phoned up to double check he was still ok for me to pop over!
