Looks like the Kymco web page is finally updated. They dropped a lot of old models but weirdly enough they list both the Like 150i and Like 200i are both listed.

That's because both the Like 150 and 200 will be available for 2018. not sure if the Like 200 will be available for 2019 though. Confirmed through my dealer.

Yep, the 200i is one of Kymcos most popular products. And even at $2500 they are still making a profit  on each one - being built in a factory in mainland China probably has a lot to do with that.
Some might not be aware that Kymco initially priced the LIKE200i years ago at @$3300. My dealer said he sold quite a few at that price. This must have pushed the on the road price to $4000!

Just seems like you get a bit more for only $100 msrp more with the 150i. Perhaps people will buy the 200i over the 150 thinking there is some great change in displacement.

Yep. No telling how the salesmen will describe the two scooters. Would be surprised to see them shown at the same time on a dealer floor.
Just hope they stop pushing the LIKE200I as freeway capable!
 Kymco is pointedly stating the new LIKE is "full access roads" capable....while we know a freeway/interstate highway as be a "limited access" road.
Frankly, the new LIKE seems better in every way than the first generation scoots. Perhaps that Vespa/Lambretta clone look will keep selling the 1st gens? Especially if it on the floor with a $7000 Vespa nearby!
Amazing how much more power they are getting from fewer cc's in the new engine. Certainly my 155cc Liberty is losing nothing to my 163cc LIKE200i engine.
