KYMCO Venox 250 Cruiser
“I was disappointed when my ride ended as I was having so much fun that I could have kept riding a lot longer” – Jen

My first impression of the Kymco Venox 250 was one of surprise. It was bigger than I was expecting. Having owned a VTR 250 for 11 years, I was expecting something a little smaller. I also wasn’t prepared for how nice looking it was, as I usually prefer sport bikes, but this one looks great to me. It has a nice sound as well, something that I wasn’t expecting for a 250.

Even though it looked big and heavy it seemed to fit perfectly. I am only 5’3″ with fairly short legs and I could put my feet flat on the ground, which is something I am rarely able to do.
 
 

When I got on the bike I was surprised again; even though it looked big and heavy it seemed to fit perfectly. I am only 5’3″ with fairly short legs and I could put my feet flat on the ground, which is something I am rarely able to do. This bike is surprisingly light, and I think I could pick it up with no problems if I ever had to.

I was very intimidated about trying a new bike because even though I have been riding for 13 years I have only ever been on 3 different bikes, and NEVER on a cruiser. I was relieved to find that this bike was very easy to ride. The only challenge was remembering where the footpegs were because they are a little farther forward than on my sport bike, but even this I had mastered within the first 2 blocks.

The Venox takes off easy and smoothly and it shifts effortlessly. The ride is smooth and the riding position is very comfortable. When I went to go around my first big corner I was nervous. My old 250 never felt completely stable going around corners as it was a little twitchy. However, the Venox was great; it corners with ease and felt completely solid underneath me.

I was disappointed when my ride ended as I was having so much fun that I could have kept riding a lot longer. Depending on the type of riding you are planning on doing on this bike the power may or may not be enough. In the city, this bike has enough power, but if you want to do touring (especially though the mountains), you may be looking for something with a little more. Overall, I think that this would be a great bike for someone just starting out. It’s light, comfortable and easy to ride…and I also noticed more than a couple of people checking it out as I was riding! 😉
