The Taiwanese OEM’s very first tilting three-wheeled scooter is here. The brand-new CV3 was officially announced on November 27, 2020.
The Kymco CV3 is powered by the company’s existing 550.4cc, liquid-cooled, parallel twin. Curb weight is 280 kilograms, or just a hair over 617 pounds. USD forks suspend the paired 13-inch alloy front wheels. The rear is a 15-inch alloy, and you get dual disc brakes up front and a single disc in the rear to stop you.
Not so long ago, the three-wheeled scooter niche was fairly small, and consisted mostly of Piaggio MP3s in various sizes. Depending on the market you’re in, now you can also choose from a Peugeot Metropolis, a Yamaha Tricity, and the new Kymco CV3. The most direct comparison is the Piaggio MP3 500, and it seems as though Kymco sought to edge it out in multiple ways—at least, on paper.
Kymco CV3 Teaser video:
Apart from the 50-ish extra cubic centimeters, the CV3 makes a claimed 38kW (just under 51 hp) at 7,500 rpm, alongside 53 Nm (39.09 ft-lbs) of torque at 5,750 rpm. Meanwhile, the MP3 500 makes a claimed 32.5kW (44.2 hp) at 7,750 rpm, as well as 47.5Nm (35 ft-lbs) of torque at 5,500 rpm. Weight-wise, the CV3 is just 5 kilograms (11 pounds) heavier than the MP3 500 at the curb. In other words, it’s very, very close.
Of course, simple paper calculations can’t tell you everything you need to know about any scoot. Since the CV3 is brand new, and we don’t have crucial information like availability and price just yet—in addition to the fact that no one’s ridden the thing yet—it's impossible to do a fair comparison. Still, you can see exactly where Kymco was aiming. Will they hit the mark with the CV3? It remains to be seen. However, if leaning three-wheeled scoots call out to you, it must surely be nice to have a handful of options to choose from.

Hello everyone, I need advise with regards to insurance claim amount.
I was involved in an accident on Yishun Avenue 9 opposite Esso petrol station six months ago. In short summary, I was at the right most lane at a T junction going straight. The traffic light turned green, i rode ahead and a car suddenly sped from behind and changed lane without checking his blind spot in the middle of the junction. The car hit my handle bar from the left causing me to lose control and fall. I suffered abrasions on my left palms, arm and leg. Thankfully it wasn't as serious as other accidents There were no dislocation of joints or any fractures.
So, the driver took his own sweet time to move to the left side to come out from his car. The best part was, he came to me and HE DID NOT APOLOGIZE OR say 'SORRY' OR 'ARE YOU OK?'. I was pretty goddamn pissed. He came out with a bullshit story and said that i banged him causing damage to his bumpers and side mirror. Luckily there was a car with a camera behind to assist me in my claims and investigation. During the accident itself i took down his particulars and he took mine. Shortly after, he drove off. JUST. LIKE. THAT. So eventually, he wanted to settle privately and told me that a few a hundred should enuff to fix my bike and medical cost. Again, 'No sorry' and he's talking about cost and stuff. Shows how belittle he think of bikers yea?
A Traffic accident report was lodged on the day itself. And recently, the car's third party insurance offered me a sum of $2,600. The take away is $2,100. I just want to ask you guys that if you were to be in my situation, do you feel that $2.6k is enough? Or should i be asking for more? I did not sign anything at the moment because im not sure. What do you guys think? Kindly share your experiences.
Thank you all for taking your time to read this post. Really appreciate any advice given!!!
