By the way, Kymco scooters and motorcycles, other than the Agility 50 and 125, are not made in China. Kymco, SYM, and PGO (which are sold as Genuine Scooters here in the USA) are made in Taiwan. These three makers all sell their bikes with a two year warranty. The Japanese makers, and even Vespa, only give a one year warranty. Kymco and SYM have made components and bikes for the big Japanese makers for years. And even some BMW motorcycles are made in China and Taiwan (or were). We have a SYM HD200 scooter, and a Kymco People 150, and these are as good a scooter as anyone makes anywhere. I will take a look at this new Suzuki when it gets to the dealer in Hilo Hawaii. One thing I like is the 3.5 gallon gas tank. This thing should get 70 mpg (??) and would have a nice cruising range.
