2020 Kymco Xciting S 400i
Kymco have announced their Xciting S 400i, ushering in their next generation maxi-scooter with high spec suspension and brakes, a powerful 400cc engine, high tech dash and large wheels.
The Xciting S 400i will sit between the flagship AK550 and the smaller capacity Downtown 350i models, offering a package closer to the AK550 with a strong sport touring focus, but priced competitively for those not after all the bells and whistles and the attached price tag.
Sporty styling is matched to a single-cylinder fuel-injected powerplant producing 26.5kW or 35.5 horsepower, with the four-valve four-stroke offering fuel economy and an automatic transmission for easy commuting duties.
Large 280mm petal rotors are found on the front of the Xciting S 400i, with a large 15-inch front wheel.
The rear also boasts a 240mm rotor and is a smaller 14-inch wheel, with Bosch 9.1 ABS run on both ends to ensure high levels of safety.
The chassis has also been updated with redesigned engine and frame links, ensuring more strength and a double-clamp between the frame and fork, which is more on par with motorcycle designs. The changes ensure strong stability at high speeds, where the 400i will be performing past the expectation of smaller urban focused scooters.
On the suspension side of things there’s a set of non-adjustable telescopic forks, while dual rear shocks offer five steps of preload adjustability, which is ideal for two-up riding or when laden up.
The 400i also features Kymco’s Noodoe dash, offering smartphone connectivity and navigation, as well as the option to customise the dash display, with custom displays sharable via Noodoe cloud.
Storage comes in the form of two-stage underseat, as well as two locked glove compartments, complete with a 12V charging port.
Lighting is also LED, while an adjustable screen is standard fitment, as are heated grips for a bit of luxury.
The Xciting S 400i features a 805mm seat height, 12.5L fuel capacity and weighs in at 195kg dry, coming with a three-year factory warranty program, offering an addition year over the standard two year warranty if you have your vehicle serviced exclusively at an authorised dealer and retain an accurate service history.
The Xciting S 400i is arriving in dealers now and will be available for $8,990 plus on road costs in Matte Deep Blue. For further get in contact with your nearest KYMCO scooter dealer or head to the KYMCO Australia website at www.kymco.com.au (link).
