Downtown 350i
New Deep Blue Downtown 350i (Euro 4-Certified) Announcement.
The Downtown 350i was first revealed back in 2014 at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan where it caught the world’s attention. It integrated three great elements: Sport, Touring, and Comfort. This year, KYMCO will reveal the Downtown 350i at the EICMA show in a new “Deep Blue” colour and EURO 4 approved emission specifications. The new “Deep Blue” colour gives the Downtown more of an urban luxury look that reinvigorates its original style.
The Downtown 350i’s powerful engine is ready anytime to turn urban touring into suburban exploring. The seats have been ergonomically designed for the rider’s and passenger’s comfort. The Downtown comes with a large under seat storage space that can fit two full-face helmets. This makes long distance journeys more convenient. A larger fuel tank is a feature that can relieve stress on the road. Another great feature is the large windshield that creates a smooth airflow and makes high speed riding more pleasant. The “Deep Blue” colour creates elegance; the concept delivers an urban style ride that lets drivers express their personal tastes.
The Downtown, first announced in 2009, was an immediate top seller and over 100,000 of them have already been sold in over 40 countries. Given its popularity, KYMCO has now revolutionised the Downtown and is happy to announce a second edition of this masterpiece.
KYMCO’s revolutionary vision builds on the success of the Downtown as a comfortable touring scooter by making it sporty too. The second edition of the Downtown adds an elegant sporty look and feel to satisfy consumers’ need for comfort as well as performance. In addition to the enhanced sporty appearance, the engine has also been upgraded. This Downtown’s power is 30PS higher than the original, and the 320cc motor provides the performance expected in a sport touring scooter. This extra power was implemented with the environment in mind. KYMCO was the first to comply with Euro 3's pollution emissions regulations and this edition of the Downtown passes Euro 4 emissions testing on this edition of the Downtown. KYMCO continues to create vehicles which make your dreams come true.
