– Taiwan-based Kymco unveils new Like 125 EV
– It can store five 50V13Ah batteries
– Collective battery range is 199 km
Taiwan-based two-wheeler manufacturer Kymco has unveiled the 2022 edition of its electric scooter, the Like 125 EV, for international markets. This is essentially the electric version of Kymco’s Like 125 conventional scooter that is quite popular in Europe and certain Asian markets.
The most outstanding feature of the Like 125 EV is the ability to store up to five interchangeable batteries that together facilitate the scooter with a range of 199 km. With a nominal value of 50V13Ah and a weight of 6 kg each, two of these stored batteries power the scooter at the same time. As for the propulsion motor, the 3.2 kW brushless DC motor produces 4.3 hp and 124 Nm of torque at the rear wheel.
The Like 125 EV is also a visually appealing scooter. It has a modern-retro design like the Vespa models with recessed and streamlined body panels. Kymco has also generously equipped it with useful features such as a USB charging port in the glove compartment, reverse mode and a Bluetooth-enabled digital dashboard that pairs with the rider’s smartphone for notifications, weather alerts and turn-by-turn navigation. In addition, the entire lighting setup is LED type.
The Kymco Like 125 EV is unlikely to launch in India any time soon. However, we have some attractive products such as the Bajaj Chetak and TVS iQube.
