Our Jono has spent the Spring and Summer time with the Kymco Journey Scooter. We’ve fitted equipment to it and loved many rides with the Kymco. You could recall Jono’s ‘off’ in a ford… You may see all of the movies that includes the Kymco on our YouTube Channel – simply search ‘Kymco’. Now, right here’s Jono’s ideas on the Kymco DTX360 Journey Scooter…
In ever extra unsure instances, it’s tough to be shocked. However the Kymco has blown my proverbial socks proper off! I’ve been utilizing it as an on a regular basis runaround, together with my brief, country-lane commute to work every day. This has meant that on most days I’ve been giving both my son or my step-niece a carry into city, too. Two-up on a scooter that has a small single-cylinder motor was one thing I assumed can be painfully gradual and a bit bouncy.
Not the DT360X. It’s completely different, in fact. Two-up is extra than simply additional weight on the brakes and motor, it’s a way of thinking as nicely. You will have extra than simply your security to contemplate. Sure, I like to exit for a spirited blast, however with one other life on the again it’s all about safety and defensive placement on the highway.
Finally, the Kymco has proved itself fantastically sure-footed; with nice really feel from the brakes, and fivesteps of spring stress adjustability on the rear which means its simple to fine-tune for a pillion or a bag full or procuring.
Loaded up, it’s slightly slower away from the lights, nevertheless it was simply as able to staying up with the movement of site visitors and cornering was unaffected. Bravo Kymco, this scooter is simply profitable me over, day-to-day.
It’s not all been good, although. I’ve had some battery points – and after three days sat nonetheless, I’m greater than probably going to have to leap it. That’s a ache. Notably when it is advisable take away the display and small entrance panel to entry the battery. If this was my perpetually machine and never simply on long-term check then I might undoubtedly match a trickle charger with entry to the cables neatly tucked into the small glovebox on the left of the sprint.
