Kymco started the year with the successful launch of the K-Pipe 125, and now the 50cc version has arrived priced at just £1499.

Firmly aimed at young riders and first time bikers, the K-Pipe 50 delivers on stylish looks, ease of use and affordability. Plus, like its bigger brother, it innovatively combines the sports features of a motorcycle with the fun, freedom and economy of a scooter.

The K-Pipe's unique 4-speed semi-automatic gear box and naked looks set a new genre for two-wheel transportation accoding to Ian Kidson, managing director at MASCO, the sole UK distributor for Kymco.

Ian said: "The K-Pipe is an excellent example of how Kymco continues to innovate within the global two-wheel market.

"The uniqueness of the K-Pipe's style will appeal to those aged 16-21 years old, and those looking for an affordable alternative to scooters. Based on the response so far to the 125cc model, we are confident that the K-Pipe's radical styling and price tag will turn more youngsters onto 2-wheels."

With a RRP of only £1499, the K-Pipe 50 offers great value for money for 16 and 17 years olds too. It is powered by one of Kymco's most fuel efficient 4-stroke air cooled engines, that can achieve well in excess of 100 miles per gallon (40kms per litre).

Like all Kymco machines, the K-Pipe also comes with a trusted 2-year unlimited mileage parts and labour manufacturers' warranty.

The K-Pipe 50 is available now.
