Kymco Launches First 3-Wheel Scooter - Kymco CV3!


Recommended Posts

  • Administrators

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.

      Price: $5000 = $1500 + $3500 (Confirmed Scrap Value by NEA)
      Cash only! Please source for your own loan.
       
      You will confirm get $3500 from NEA once you scrap this bike. So that means you are paying only $1500 for this scooter which you can use for 14 months! So the depreciation is only around $100 per month!
       
      It might be old but it is very reliable. I'm getting 25km/l mileage. All the parts that needs to be changed, has been changed. Bike is serviced regularly and tyres were just changed in Jan 2018. Battery just changed last month. It's a very simple start and go scooter. Comes with the Shad box as seen in the picture.
       
      PM me if you are interested to view! Thanks for reading!
