What’s not to like

Published: 09/09/2009

TAIWANESE scooter giant Kymco has had a presence in the UK for more than a decade now and its range is growing all the time. One of the latest scooters to hit the dealers is the retro-styled Like, a four-stroke automatic scooter which is available as learner-legal 50cc and 125cc models.

The Like can be forgiven for looking similar to a Vespa because it was designed by Italian Massimo Zaniboni, who took his inspiration from classic scooters of the 1950s and ’60s. With chrome detailing, curvy lines and subtle pearlescent paintwork, the Like looks great at an affordable price.

At a time when retro is cool and almost every advert on telly has a vintage scooter in the background, you can see why firms are imitating the Italian classics of yesteryear.
