Last year, scooter giant Kymco introduced its entry to the segment, the DTX 360. The maxi-scooter comes with dual-purpose tires, angular adventure bike styling, touring amenities, and a good bit of tech.
To make this type of vehicle more accessible, Kymco released a smaller version in France called the DTX 125. The little brother unit to the 360 packs much of the same character, styling, and versatility in a more compact and affordable package.
Its 125cc single-cylinder engine pumps about 13hp at 8,750rpm, while a CVT gearbox makes for a hassle-free ride. Keeping the powertrain fed is a 12.5-liter fuel tank, and a conventional telescopic fork/twin rear shock suspension setup absorbs road bumps. For safety, ABS-equipped disc brakes provide stopping power.
Like the DTX 360, the 125cc model gets dual-purpose tires, a 14-inch wheel up front and a 13-inch wheel at the rear, as well as a host of convenient features.
Creature comforts include a windshield, LED illumination, keyless ignition, front storage compartments with a USB charging port, a large digital readout, a sizable seat, and enough underseat storage space to fit a couple of open-face helmets.
Styling appears to be identical to the DTX 360, which is why Kymco France is using the aforementioned scooter’s images on the 125’s product page.
Pricing starts at €4,699, or about P276,000. Would you want this in our market?
