The new Kymco KRV comes with almost 17 hp and relies on a two-arm swing arm for the rear wheel in the chassis area, which is quite unusual for scooters.

With their concept, scooters are predestined for urban mobility. Because it’s not just about utility, tried Kymco to breathe a lot of driving fun into the KRV with a beefed up chassis.

Sporty, modern look

At first glance, the new Kymco KRV looks like many scooters in this segment: massive, wide front paneling for plenty of wind and weather protection, a deep, wide step-through for freedom of movement and a comfortable seating position as well as a stepped bench on the slightly rising rear area. The outfit is garnished with an LED double headlight on the front as well as turn signals and rear light, also with LED technology. The compartment under the bench holds a helmet. An open storage compartment in the interior lining holds small items. Not to forget – the bag hook for shopping.

The driver’s workplace is rounded off by a keyless system and a USB socket in the interior trim. An LED display embedded in the front panel ensures the basic supply. The indicator lights and control buttons are in a second unit in front of it. So far, so Roller.

It is more revolutionary under the plastic dress. Here a newly developed 175 cm³ four-stroke single cylinder provides propulsion. To get the 133 kilogram KRV going, just under 17 hp and 16 Nm of torque are available. To keep it moving, 7.2 liters of fuel are carried in the fuel tank. A traction control that can be switched off ensures grip at all times.

Two-sided swing arm, like on a motorcycle

The 13-inch cast rims at the front and rear are fitted with tires in the sporty sizes 110/70 at the front and 130/70 at the rear. The ABS stoppers use disc brakes on each wheel. The front wheel is sprung and guided by a conventional telescopic fork. In the back, the KRV treats itself to an extra tour. The single-cylinder engine including variator is not integrated into a drive unit swing arm as is usual, but rather embedded in the frame as a solitary unit. The rear wheel sits in a two-arm swing arm that is supported directly on the frame via a central spring strut. A toothed belt takes over the final drive. This significantly reduces the unsprung masses and promises more comfort and better road holding.

Kymco does not yet provide further information on performance, prices and market availability.

Conclusion

With its chassis technology based on motorcycle construction, the new Kymco KRV is intended to set standards in terms of driving dynamics. Almost 17 hp appears to be quite sufficient for urban traffic.
