Now THAT is a 500cc scoot! The Kymco's really have that rice rocket look. Like Slinger said... "eye of the beholder". I'm really liking the Piggy's lately...
Just never ride one.
My (half)sister owned one for a year, and while it's great to look at,
it's quality is waaay below even entry level Kymco scoots. It was rattling
all over, forks were leaking oil, and the suspension in general is way too soft.
Makes for a comfortable ride, but the power is overwhelming for that kind of
suspension so it's a rather dangerous ride if you like to push it.
It's great for easy cruising though.
Considering it costs more then XC500Ri (here at least), it's a no-go in my
book, and no ABS either.
