It's a very distinctive looking bike... it would take time for me to like the looks.  I can't get past reviewers who lump KYMCO in with the Chinese scooter business.

The whole review was annoying, IMO. But it is the only one I could find.  I always liked "Dink" and "Grand Dink" as scooter names and I think Kymco's marketing dept. should have left it alone.

I don't think it looks too bad.

No, while I think it's funny it would be a tragic marketing error to name the bike the "Dink" or worse the "Grand Dink".  I suppose if you are going to be a Dink being the grandest counts for something.

I disliked Bet & Win in the beginning...  but it grew on me. I guess naming it the best looking and fastest little scoot ever made was just to much!

I think Bet & Win sounds inspired compared to Dink.  In this culture anyway.

I think it is some sort of lizard or salamander, I'm probably wrong, but I'm not letting that stop me.

See I would have kept the names Dink and Grand Dink and started an ad campaign that said things like, "Quit Dinking around," "Please Dink around," and have Jimmy Durante singing his signature song.

Of course none of the motorbike companies can be arsed to advertise these days.
