KYMCO Venox 250 Cruiser Review
Page 1 of 8
The sun beats down, a gust of wind blows across the scorching road and the sound of a V-Twin approaches in the distance. It’s another perfect hot summer day as the blacktop rolls by under the Venox’s meaty tires and the trip meter ticks past yet another mile.
A medium sized cruiser with a larger than life engine burbles into the parking lot. It’s low, it’s lean and it’s packing a surprise. Riders and non-riders come out of the woodwork to take a peek at the birth of Kymco’s newest motorcycle in Canada; the Venox 250.
As people are looking at the engine, you can hear the comments, “Is that a 900cc?” “Could be a 750,” “Maybe it’s even bigger than that.” They get even closer to look and only by getting within a few inches of the engine do they realise that big hunk of V-Twin engine is actually packing a surprise: it’s a 250cc V-Twin. With engine casings so crafted in detail you wouldn’t think twice about believing it to be a 750cc engine.
The frame size and engine covers make the bike look much larger than a 250cc model.
And that’s just the first of many surprises the Venox 250 holds for those who are fortunate enough to ride or own the Venox 250 as their first bike.
Kymco isn’t a new manufacturer in the world, they are just new in Canada. In fact, Kymco’s roots in the motor sports industry go back to its founding in 1963 in Taiwan. An ever-expanding dealer network in the USA currently serves over 600 U.S. locations, and now they are looking at the next logical step: Canada. In their first year in Canada, Kymco can boast 31 dealers across Canada. Offering a very rare industry two-year factory warranty on motorcycles and scooters, new Kymco owners are in good hands indeed.
With thanks to Sabina Heilman and Carol Anne Mandekic from KYMCO Canada*, and Jose Sousa of Motor City Fun of Calgary, Alberta*, Total Motorcycle.com had the opportunity to test ride and review for you one of the very first Venox 250’s to arrive in Canada.
For our Test Ride we had 5 riders put the Venox 250 through its paces. From city traffic to highway cruising, smooth roads, construction zones, curvy roads and even rush hour traffic, this bike was tested by each one of us in order to get a well-rounded review. Each tester will bring their own style, opinions and view points for you to read.
Without further ado, onto the reviews!
