KYMCO started the year with the successful launch of the K-Pipe 125, and now the 50cc version has arrived priced at only £1499.
Firmly aimed at young riders and first time bikers, the K-Pipe 50 delivers on stylish looks, ease of use and affordability. Plus, like its older brother, it innovatively combines the sports features of a motorcycle with the fun, freedom and economy of a scooter.
The K-Pipe’s unique 4-speed semi-automatic gear box and naked looks set a new genre for two-wheel transportation says Ian Kidson, Managing Director at MASCO, the sole UK distributor for KYMCO and BDN’s 2013 Scooter Franchise of the Year.
Ian said: “The K-Pipe is an excellent example of how KYMCO continues to innovate within the global two-wheel market. The uniqueness of the K-Pipe’s style will appeal to those aged 16-21 years old, and those looking for an affordable alternative to scooters. Based on the response so far to the 125cc model, we are confident that the K-Pipe’s radical styling and price tag will turn more youngsters onto 2-wheels.”
The striking Red/Black & White/Black livery and the 17” spoked alloy wheels complete the bike’s edgy naked design. Later on this year, riders will also be able to personalise their bike using KYMCO’s range of K-Pipe accessories.
The K-Pipe has a cleverly designed spinal column framework made from casted alloy, which has an overall weight of just 11.8kg. It is therefore lighter, stronger and more responsive compared to most other small capacity bikes. The wheel base has also been shortened to give extra manoeuvrability and the seat lowered to make it even easier for beginners. The bike’s mono-shock rear absorber and telescopic front forks also add to rider comfort and stability. Additional features include an electric and kick start plus a digital display with built-in IC processor so that the fuel gauge, clock and speedometer are easy to read at a glance.
The bike is powered by one of KYMCO’s most fuel efficient 4-stroke air cooled engines, which can achieve well in excess of 100 miles per gallon (40kms per litre).
Like all KYMCO machines, the K-Pipe also comes with a trusted 2-year unlimited mileage parts and labour manufacturers’ warranty. Visit www.kymco.co.uk for more information.
