In response to the demand for Kymco's new retro-styled Like 125 Scooter, the Taiwanese manufacturer has now launched a 50cc version of the machine. The Like 50 will be available in the UK from August and priced at just £1499 will offer 50cc riders the chance to own a high quality, stylish and reliable scooter at an affordable price. Free and subsidised Kymco Insurance for 16-19 years olds (subject to T&Cs) will also be available on this model.

Just like its 'big sister', the Kymco Like 50 has been classically styled by Italian designer Massimo Zaniboni and combines the clean and modern lines of a retro scooter with the engineering, build quality and comfort of a 21st century machine. The name 'Like' derives from the fact that the design is based on Massimo's own interpretation of 50's and 60's scooters, which is evident from the Like's characteristic styling. The cool light blue pearlescent paintwork, chrome mirrors, wide body panels and chrome surround headlamp on the handlebars provide the classic retro look.

In contrast, underneath the exterior retro styling, the Like 50 is powered by a modern four-stroke air-cooled engine, which ultimately makes it greener and more fuel-efficient, capable of achieving in excess of 100 miles per gallon with very low carbon emissions.

Kymco has included many top of the range features as standard on the Like Scooter range, such as a halogen headlight, 12-inch alloy wheels, a digital instrument panel, including fuel gauge, a colour-coded top box, in addition to an electric and kick-start, automatic choke, lockable under seat storage box, steering lock, and centre and side stands

The Like 50 offers the whole package for 50cc riders wanting retro style with the latest technology at an affordable price. This is further complimented with free or subsidised insurance for 16-19 olds (subject to T&Cs) and an unlimited mileage 2-year manufacturer's warranty.

The Like 50 will also be available to buy online at
