I bought second grand dink on 2004. There's no spare parts change for 2 years. On June 2006, my grand dink sold to my friend.

 

The parts for kymco is cheaper than piaggio. For acceleration, kymco is better than piaggio X9.

 

I sold my grand dink because I change to Xciting 500

I think X9 better for grip, also suspension. But many problems with X9, like LCD, water pump, etc.

 

But for my kymco, never problem with parts. Until I sold the bike, I'm never change the parts. Spek Plug only.

kymco bikes has the best fuel consumption of all scooters in the house. but in terms of engine performance and how smooth the engine is ...... it lacks in that area to those like majesty n forza. but hats off to this bike...... its very reliable

I just bought a Dink from the sole agent.

http://www.kymco.com.sg

 

Hi. Congrats. Thanks for the link. Did you buy the Dink 200, Grand Dink 150, or Grand Dink 250?

 

Am just investigating the GD 150. My license is going to be class 2B so this is what I can make do with for the mean time. I'm a bit curious about the name 'dink'. Look at the meaning for this word:

I have got a Dink 250. I saw a new Dink 200i - feul injection, just arrive there. You can go to their shop and take a look when you are free. I test ride the Dink 250 first before I decided to buy.

 

Thanks. I work near the Looi Motor at Kaki Bukit. I'm going to give them a call and see whether they have any in their showroom. :)

I test-ride the Dink 200i that day also, very impressed with the fuel injection. When you are there, test-ride their bike, they are OK with that, they dont pressure you to buy.

Finally got a quote for the Grand Dink 150. May I know why you choose the Grand Dink 250 over the Dink 200i? I think the draw for Grand Dink is the size of the bike, the storage space, right?
