People 200

Just took a ride on the People 200 by Kymco. I have to say its a sweet ride, it has a little more power than the Like 200 which I'm about to talk about, but I loved the handling.

The People S 200 is different from the 150cc I rode in Puerto Rico a few years back, it has a little more kick to it, the styling is different and somehow I think the seat is nicer. If you're a lady you will like it because you hardly feel the road thanks to the bigger tires. Braking power was excellent on it and I liked the way it curved.

Now if you're daily commute isn't that far I would take it over the older 250cc model that they had any day. It's perfect for inner city with some highway exposure. I dont think you need more than a 200cc for living in a city like Denver or Miami. If you have a lot of commuting and you have to go over 30 miles each way to work then yes a 250cc might be better.

Now if you like the 16" wheels then take the People 200 for a spin. If you want something a little more radical wait for the LIKE 200.
