Taiwanese Kymco is continuing its move beyond the scooter world with a new 150cc bike that looks pretty competent. The Quannon is slated as a 2010 model with all the standard small-bike features, including an air-cooled 150cc powerplant, disc brakes, monoshock and a tepid 14 HP. Kymco is touting the bike as a perfect entry-level machine with 75mpg fuel economy. Unfortunately, the company’s not fooling anyone with an MSRP of $3,449.
The problem is that for an extra
50 bucks 500 bucks, you could just go buy a new Kawasaki
250R Ninja. Expect to see these sported by the hipper Chinese food
delivery guys as post-apocalyptic Blade Runner street fighters with
crazy rattle-can paint jobs, megaphone exhausts and homebrew folding
