Kymco People GTi 300 ABS

This is one scooter I’m eagerly awaiting. The People GTi is Kymco’s urban commuter that features large 16 inch wheels, a short wheelbase with a flat floor configuration. Kind of in the same mould as Aprilia’s Sportcity, a scooter I still regard as one of the best ever.

Europe has just released information on a 2015 update for the People GTi range and this includes the injected 300 model that has recently seen ADR approval for Australia. Word is we will have this model on dealers floors late October.

For MY15, the People GTi gets a series of minor styling updates. The suspension gets some tweaks and a more comfortable saddle. Other key features on the People 300 GTi include Kymco’s G5 engine/transmission package, ABS brakes and LED running lights.

So what’s all the excitement?

The large wheeled scooter segment has been left depleted since the Aprilia Sportcity or even Honda’s SH 300 were both taken off the Australian market. There’s no longer a large capacity scooter available for sale in this configuration. The People 300 GTi will help fill this gap.

Let’s hope this one does make it here as it looks like a good thing, especially with the latest round of 2015 model year updates. We’ll release further information as it crosses the Scootersales desk.

If the price is right with abs then should be a goer

I think providing the price is good, would be a nice option over something like the SYM HD 200.  Would have that extra go needed for longer rides.
