The world of the electric, both two and four wheels, is constantly evolving. Now a truly surprising model in some details is ready to land on the market and surprise you.
The world of electricity continues to involve millions of companies around the world. Not only car companies, but two-wheeled companies have also been working on the motor technology of the future for some time. Also applies to the Kymco, a Chinese manufacturer that for some years has become part of the motorcycle market by focusing heavily on electric mobility.
The Taywan-based company, however, did not think only and exclusively of the customers of its mother country, but also of European ones. And it proves it with its latest model, the electric scooter Like 125 EV, the twin of the more popular Like vehicle series, with zero emissions that was recently made by the company in question: let’s discover all its secrets, from batteries to price.
Kymco Like 125: contradictory name, features and price surprise
The Kymco Like 125, to begin with, is contradictory. Or rather, the abbreviation ‘125’ is, given that this model is not at all that powerful and is therefore more comparable with significantly less performing vehicles on the market.
The electric motor it has reaches a power of 3.2 kW, just over 4 Hp. It therefore does not have an engine that makes you dream, while surprising from other points of view. The same limited engine, in fact, is perfect for traveling through city traffic.

The scooter offers two different batteries, both with 650 Wh of capacity, which is not much. In any case, even with the batteries removed, the scooter can continue to operate thanks to an internal accumulator characterized by an additional 550 Wh which in borderline situations it is really a very useful move.
