I've been looking at this little number and getting antsy.
It's all over YouTube if you're interested.

I know, I was searching for new videos on my Xc 400i and YT keeps showing me the AK550. Yep, I'm watching all the way through and commenting on them too....

Amazing Bike. Three-way comparison with the BMW 650 Sport and Tmax 530 said:

Best-handling and braking, and best in the city..KYMCO AK 550

Best on the Autostrada and Touring...BMW C650 Sport

Best All Around...Tmax 530

If price matters? No comparison, AK 550 KILLS the competition. And, it's better-looking then BOTH and has the BEST OEM exhaust sound. No need for any AKRA or the like...

...and we DON'T GET IT

You know, that sounds like a good theme for a CW song! I think you've got something there to work on.

I went and sat on one this AM just to see if I fit! The AK is a couple of inches shorter than my X10 but there seems to be much more leg room on the AK.

I mentioned to the financial advisor the other day that before I spend another €450 on a major service I'll sell the X10 and get something new. So far.... so good.

While a good credit score is good with the CFO, the personal attention to minor details can often transform a potential sour transaction into a rather sweet deal

Ok, so I'm thinkin' that the holier-than-thou, kickin' 'n screamin', pouting and holding my breath tactic isn't going to work this time?

Well, I'm in this for whatever it takes.

I even love the color. But, should they finally get it to the USA.....
They'll probably change those mirrors, the color, stalks on the rear.
I'm still interested. I've started a program designed to make my transition easier by the time (if?) it gets here!!!

If it comes, that is my next scooter.  I really don't want to have to move to get one. If it doesn't, I'll have to hunt for a NOS Silverwing.

Bruce, which ride you doing Friday?  We gotta exchange info. B4 I get gone ....

IF I miss you, Maggie has my number for ER contacts. She has my permission, and thanks,  to pass it on to you.

IF that fails, I'll PM you ... I think I can do that.

Gotta get that Burgman back up and going:-)
