Based on the popular Like 150 R, an Aussie favourite thanks to its compelling integration of retro syling bit with modern convenience and performance, the Like 150 S not only continues the classic and practical theme but also adds extra sport and agility into the scooter equation.
This new point of reference for the Like 150 S is reflected in a more streamlined dash, slimmer headlight, new pillion grabrail, new front vent and new muffler cover. In addition, black (piping, forks, front vent, headlight bezel, mirrors) has become the more dominant trim compared to chrome and silver.
The Like 150 S is now available in an eye-catching orange livery for $4490 plus on-road costs, which includes Kymco’s three-year factory warranty. The Like 150 R retails for $4990 plus on-road costs.
The vibrant new look of the Like 150 S is underpinned by a 9.9 kW (13.3 hp) four-valve fuel-injected engine – still the most powerful in class – which is now smoother and quieter than ever thanks to recent refinements like using helical gears in the CVT twist-and-go transmission.
The Like 150 S also takes advantage of chassis updates across the Like line-up, including the adoption of a bi-beam frame and repositioning of the fuel tank to lower the centre of gravity. The Like 150 S is also 5kg lighter than the Like 150 R, too, thanks to the absence of a carrier and top box.
Traditional telescopic forks and twin preload-adjustable shock absorbers look after suspension duties, while high-rigidity and light-weight 12-inch wheels contribute to the Like’s agile handling.
The Like 150 S is fitted with dual channel Bosch anti-lock braking, and it has ample under seat storage and a glove box compartment.
