2005 Kymco Grand Dink 250 review:
Handles like a bike
Review of the Grand Dink 250 submitted on 2006-09-14.
The first thing that I realised when I first rode this machine is that it felt just like a bike. All the things that you do when riding a bike you do when you ride this machine. The build quality, stability and handling lend itself to riding the machine using the proper riding skills. No wobbling around corners on this scooter. You sit inside the bike, not astride, but still point your hip into the corner, push on the bars and throttle through. This has to be the best behaved hooligan scooter I have ever ridden. At 150 kgs it is not light like the little 125īs but that is an advantage, the motor is really strong and we have seen 146 kmh on the digital clock and at those speeds you want stability. The lean is excellent and not once have we felt anywhere near the limit, even when riding hard. For a starter machine or a ladies bike you can not go better,experianced riders will have to make an effort to keep off as this is so much fun. A screen to hide behind and keep off the bugs, an under seat space that swallows the shopping, disk brakes front and back, intergrated on the left lever. The pull away from stop has to be experianced to be believed and it is smooth, very very smooth. Mirrors are great and handlebar position comfortable even over distance. New riders will appreciate the gentle manners at first and will go on to appreciate the limits that this machine can acheive as they get more experiance.
