With a marked trend for big wheel scooters in the UK commuter market, Kymco has added the new fuel injected People One 125i to its range, at a class-leading price of £2199.

Big wheels are all the rage in Europe and especially in Italy, a market Kymco continues to dominate, because for novice riders and city commuters they provide extra stability and are easier to handle, manoeuvre and park.

Here in the UK, Kymco has seen this sector of the market flourish over the past 12 to 18 months, with the big-wheel City 125 scooter being one of its best sellers in 2012.

The arrival of the People One 125i in July 2013 extends this opportunity by offering commuters an Italian styled, fuel injected machine, at a price that rivals all others in its class.

Ian Kidson, managing director of MASCO, the sole UK distributor for Kymco and winner of BDN's Scooter Franchise of the Year award said; "The People 125i is a class-leading quality machine that offers something for everyone. The style conscious, the environmentally aware, the economist and the rider who simply wants more comfort while navigating busy town or city streets, all at a sensible price."

At the heart of the machine is Kymco's world-renowned fuel-efficient and low-emission 4-stroke single cylinder, fuel-injected engine, which produces a top speed of 65mph and achieves well in excess of 100 miles per gallon, (40kms per litre).

The 16-inch front and 14-inch rear wheels provide the scooter with stability and a ride quality that smaller wheeled scooters simply cannot match. Add a pot-holed city street and the advantage doubles. A low seat height of just 760mm, together with fully adjustable rear suspension, completes the comfort package.

The People One 125i also comes fully equipped with a host of premium features as standard, including a halogen headlight, alloy wheels and a colour-matched rear top box. It also has a lockable glove box and an under-seat storage compartment that is large enough to store an open-faced helmet. The bright and colourful display ensures that the speedometer, fuel gauge and clock are easy to read at a glance.

The People One 125i is now available to order in a fashionable Pearlescent White with contrasting black trim and features.

This new scooter also benefits from Kymco's 2-year unlimited-mileage manufacturer's warranty.
