2009 Kymco Venox 250 Fuel Injected

Note: This version may be available in 2009 in North America.

High performance V-twin engine, big cruiser looking, lightweight, stable and reasonable price, Venox 250 express a typical and outstanding big cruiser spirit.


The KYMCO Venox 250 has the look of a big cruiser with plenty of visual appeal. Yet it is light in weight, easy handling, and even easier on the pocketbook. KYMCO's proven 250cc V-twin, 8 valve DOHC engine provides the power, a 5-speed gearbox delivers it to the road. The Venox is an impressive bike for any entry- level rider or any seasoned rider looking for a motorcycle that's just a real blast to own. A beautiful finish with plenty of chrome and available accessories rounds out this already complete package.

With the Venox 250, KYMCO has engineered a lightweight motorcycle with a low centre of gravity for a perfectly balanced ride. Chrome accents, sleek lines, aluminium wheels, a slightly stretched fuel tank, and staggered exhaust pipes all add to its uniquely attractive look. The Venox also features a large front disk brake and a solid rear wheel in a silver painted finish available in three rich colours.
Additional Features: Aluminium wheels, dual piston front caliper, low center of gravity, adjustable rear shock, fuel tank mounted analogue gauges, chrome accents, staggered "trumpet" exhaust pipes, single round front headlamp, chrome controls and handlebars, classic colours, low seat height, side ignition, folding passenger pegs.

A blast from the past!

I've been wanting to put up the Venox 250 for some time now, but always forget as some other new model makes it way onto the wall. Well, this week is the week! :D

Sadly, 2010 was the last year for the Venox from KYMCO as KYMCO dropped their motorcycle lineup in favor of scooters only.

Oddly proportioned, chintzy details, and generally uncool looking. Ergo, uncool.

Enjoy. :D

BTW - After riding the Venox, I gave it an awesome.

You can also read the TWM review of the Venox 250 back in the day here: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/reviews/ ... ruiser.htm ... overall, 44.4% isn't so bad for a 5 year old bike from Taiwan though.

The Venox 250 FI did better than the Harley-Davidson FLRT Freewheeler from a few weeks ago.
