The xe đạp projected a mature, mean and stylish naked bike image và proved that you don’t always have lớn go fast all the time to be cool. Since then, the boss khủng has morphed into a full mã sản phẩm range which became and still is the giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnpany’s best-selling model after almost twenty years & other manufacturers have also produced bikes khổng lồ giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnpete in the same modern naked xe đạp category. Modern edgy styling, practical và a relatively giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnfortable riding position are the ingredients for a successful naked xe đạp model.

Sadly, for small xe đạp buyers, these kind of edgy-styled motorcycles are few in the market. While our local Ducati/KTM dealer sells the Monster và the Duke, they are obviously out of the price range of the underbone/scooter users.

It is powered by KYMCO’s own 123.6 single cylinder, air-cooled, 4-stroke engine coupled khổng lồ a semi-automatic clutch transmission with four speed. This giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnbination has already been proven in the previous Jetix 125 & Spike models of KYMCO. It gives reasonable peppy performance, is reliable và delivers outstanding fuel efficiency. Estimated fuel efficiency is around 45-50 km/liter và maximum tốc độ is close to 100kph. Also, the semi-automatic clutch is ideal for beginner riders & will be familiar khổng lồ long time underbone users, making the transition easier.

The K-Pipe rides well. The engine is relatively smooth with just enough power khổng lồ enable you lớn go around swiftly in the city và around town trips. The sporty tires give good traction và the brakes are good especially the front which has steel braided hose. The shifting is typical underbone feel with a modest amount of acceleration. Its smallness makes the xe đạp nimble và easy lớn turn but also makes it slightly skittish at high speeds. The mid-mount pipe & high ground clearance is also good for wading in low flash floods if the need unfortunately arises.

The K-Pipe, while well proportioned, is very giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnpact in size. This contributes to its good looks, maneuvering ability & light handling (almost like a bicycle!). However, the small kích thước also limits the giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnfort for much taller riders. It is relatively narrow giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnpared khổng lồ underbones và scooters due khổng lồ the absence of leg guards và the sporty handlebars are quite narrowly set and low. The seat is sculptured và thinly padded to make it look good but will influence long ride giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnfort and limits back ride space. Also the rear frame does not have provision to mount a đứng top case. But then again, these are the same giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnpromises that the big naked bikes also suffer in favor of style, because after all, this is what this bike is all about!

We are sure that every K-Pipe125 will over up being modified to lớn suit the owner’s personality or to lớn improve the xe đạp to meet his or her requirements. For added style, we would regiaithuongtinhnguyen.vnmend fatter tires & wider & higher flat handlebars which will improve not only the looks but also the handling và giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnfort; although the fat tires will weaken performance and showroom to fuel consumption. A thicker seat might lessen the mean look but will surely be a must for riders planning to vày long tours on the K-Pipe. But for daily short giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnmuting và night cruising to lớn the local tambayan, the seat is just right.

*

So as a package, the K-Pipe 125is indeed a good value-for-money for those seeking for high style to be different from the pack. It’s a reasonable only bike và a perfect second bike. Its asking price of below P65, 000 is very attractive considering that you are getting the latest mã sản phẩm from KYMCO as they get it in Europe and other parts of the world.

Truly Astig!

Al Camba: “This motorcycle is probably the most affordable style statement you can buy brand new in the local market. The price is very attractive while its performance và reliability are highly acceptable. But the main reason for you lớn buy the K-Pipe is its raw styling! The K-Pipe has a lot to lớn offer in terms of motorcycle fashion. Originally designed in Taiwan & marketed in Europe and around Asia, the K-Pipe looks lượt thích a scaled down Italian naked bike, something you don’t expect from an Asian giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnpany. I love the brightly painted steel tube trellis frame similar lớn the bikes of Ducati và KTM and the sleek plastics of the tail section & fuel tank that are well-proportioned making the K-Pipe look bigger than it actually is! The dual stacked headlamps, digital instrument cluster, đen alloy wheels, LED tail light assembly, mono shock rear suspension & mid-mount exhaust pipe give it a very modern & sporting image as well. There is nothing spectacular about the performance of the 125cc engine single cylinder engine, 4-speed rotary transmission, or the front disc và rear drum brakes with steel braided lines. But they all work well giving the K-Pipe reasonable performance. It’s a bit small for taller riders but the average Filipino will suit with it perfectly. And at the over of the day, those are not on vị trí cao nhất of the riders’ minds because they are too busy smiling knowing that they are mounted on one of the best looking motorcycle that they can afford. The price to style ratio is so high that you will get more attention riding on it than a giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnparably priced or more expensive mountain bike. In addition, the K-Pipe can get you around faster & farther than the bicycle too!”

Philip Bonza: “This motorcycle has a chất lượng design & style. I really like its contours from the front to the back. The tube pipes as chassis are very cool style-wise. Riding this unit is ungiaithuongtinhnguyen.vnfortable for me because of its small kích cỡ and handlebar position. It looks big from afar but is actually small in kích thước when I sat into it. I’m a big person so it’s a little hard khổng lồ ride. The shift pedal position does not suit my foot too, making it hard to down shift. But those little things can be adjusted easily by any mechanic khổng lồ suit me and my size. The saddle has thin foam material so it is hard for my butt plus the rear suspension is a little hard for bumpy roads, but the front suspension is perfect. The front brake has good braking power while the rear brake has average. The projector headlamps are cool and are bright at night while the rear lamp is stylish lượt thích those on sport bikes and the front winker lamps have a good design. The engine has a little power to lớn deliver but its fine for me. This is a fun xe đạp with good looks. For its style, design, ride, power and price, 3.5 stars is my score.”

Ricci Abrina: “Another KYMCO surprise might seal the giảm giá khuyến mãi when it giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnes khổng lồ the 125cc motorcycle market. At first glance it looks like a scaled down European motorcycle – Ducati or KTM perhaps? This KYMCO K-Pipe 125 can make heads turn and makes other motorcycle riders at stoplights ask what mã sản phẩm it is. The true naked styling makes it look sexy. The stance is very manly và unique. Riding this sexy beast will put you in a racing lượt thích position with your feet right behind you – ala-race bike. The rear mono shock is nice and giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnfy for any type of road condition. Although the seat looks small, the ride feels somewhat relaxing. The tires, especially the rear that came with the demo unit, are too tall for my taste thus making it look unstable and twitchy. The cluster of gauges is a bit small but the headlight is superb in looks và in performance. KYMCO has giaithuongtinhnguyen.vne up once again with a winner.”
