It was love at first sight upon seeing the white Kymco Like 125 several months ago, but when I saw the Kymco Like – Titanium Gray version last Saturday it was different, t’was more than love! Its a mixture of Love and Like! 🙂
At first glance you would thought its the italian Vespa Super 300i.
Good thing I have not only seen it this time, I also got the opportunity to test drive it around the metro. The ride was amazing! Handling was superb! Even though with my height at (5’6″) and its much more higher than most scooter around, I didn’t have any problem making a small U-Turn at Marcos Highway . The suspension and the large seat was very comfy (even on rough roads). The throttle was very responsive and the engine and muffler are so quiet. Its like the Benz of scooter. I think you could even hear the chirping of the birds when driving on the countryside.
I also like the headlight, its very bright (no need for an HID) and the horn just is just right to be notice by other motorist and pedestrians. And the big and bright brake light at the back was just awesome! I also love its speedometer! Its clear even at night, and it also has a built-in digital clock.
Not to mention the stainless emblem of the word “Like” on the bike made it more classy!
Thanks to Supreme Bike Cainta Branch for allowing me to plank on their desk and to my ride buddy Sergs for allowing me to test ride his new Kymco Like 125!
