It's 24.3 hp at 8250 revs.
I've found 194kg dry (428lbs) on one site.
The Downtown is rated anywhere from 29.5hp (Europe)
to 32hp (Taiwanese version) at 8000 revs and is around 395lbs.
That's 21% more power and 7-8% less weight.
The Kymco People 300 is even more interesting in this comparo with
the same engine as the Downtown but at 28hp, but it's only 363lbs dry.
The stock People 300 will run away from the DT300 from 0-60mph
(stock takes 10 seconds with my fat ass on board (200lbs+), and DT300
took around 11 before mods).
Even with 33,3hp the Piaggio BV350 isn't any faster to 60mph.
