Kymco Movie 150 aka Racing 150
2008 KYMCO MOVIE/RACING 150
Milage: -
Likes: Sporty styling
Dislikes: Upgrade hesitation

Review: ”I haven't driven the Movie 150 but have been doing my homework for years on it. My current scooter is a very similar Yamaha Cygnus X which the Kymco company is trying to kill. No way! Every year both companies come out with new models which for some strange reason don't manage to get into the States. Yet they are so much more up to date. This model they are selling in the US dates back to 2008 and I just won't buy it when more modern models exist and are quite popular in Taiwan.

If anybody knows how I can buy a 2013 model Racing 150cc please let me know. Yamaha doesn't make a 150 version which I would prefer (to cart my pilon wife around).” - JRN



2013 KYMCO MOVIE/RACING 150
Milage: 0 - 1000 miles
Likes: The feel, the power, the comfort are unmatchable. It is also a head turner for sure. I am in love with this scooter.
Dislikes: The only drawbacks at this point are that there are not a lot of accessories available yet (I need a windshield) and not a lot of color options.

Review: ”I absolutely love this scooter so far.”


2013 KYMCO MOVIE 150
Milage: 0 - 1000 miles
Likes: Supreme riding comfort with dual rear shock suspension. Peppy13.5 horsepower. Accelerates very well and the compression when letting off the throttle helps slow down. Great handling.
Dislikes: Front forks do not feel to have strong enough springs in them. Spark plug is very hard to access to check or change. Stock tires are ok.

Review: Best scooter out of 4 I have owned.”

Review: Wife and I have been riding my new Movie 150 all summer and managed to rack up a lot of Kilometers. Got to say the best parts of this scooter is that its smaller/lighter then my last 150cc Scooter but large enough to feel safe. At 1100Km on the clock we just finished break in and fuel consumption has been pretty good at 180-195KM per tank (fill up at 6L) depending if any highway driving is done. Really comfortable on every ride I've been on so far and handles pretty good too.

Only real downsides are the small 12" wheels make it squirrelly when riding near top speed on Highway (105KPH right now), the speedometer is place low, so to check my speed while moving I have to take my eyes off of the road and the fuel gage is a little finicky when it gets near the bottom of the tank can't tell how much is left before empty.

A small nit to pick: I wish Kymco kept with the original turn signals beside the brake light as opposed to the ones that stick out.”

Review: I researched scooters for about a year before I decided to purchase this awesome little scoot. It looks more like a sport bike from the front and rear than a little scoot I've seen. I am 6' 220 lbs and with 150 miles on it so far it runs 63 mph, which in reality is plenty for the area I live in since 55 is the highest speed and most areas are 35 to 45.

This scooter in my opinion has the quality, fit and finish of a Honda
PCX and Yamaha SMAX. The flat floor and very large under seat storage are awesome, which for me makes it more desirable than the PCX. I am having my seat modded to make the front end of the seat go farther back on the seat by about 4 inches and will put some piping at the seam in the same color as the scoot and some Pro-glide fluorescent tape around the wheels, which will really make this little guy stand out. If you can get one BUY IT QUICK. The ONLY machine that compares to this is the PCX or SMAX, nothing else including Lance, SYM or Genuine. The scoot is worth the original MSRP of $3199 so if you can get it for $2500 to $2800 DO NOT HESITATE. I rented a pickup and drove 200 miles to get this little guy and it was worth it!


2014 KYMCO MOVIE 150
Milage: 1000 - 5000 miles
Likes: Excellent power throughout rpm range, Handles great, Awesome brakes
Dislikes: None so far

Review: I have owned quite a few 150 bikes and the Movie 150 is by far the fastest, best handling one I have owned to date. The brakes are amazing with discs front and rear. Kymco has really stepped it up with this bike. Best of all it has a two year unlimited mileage warranty that is rivalled by no one. LOVE THIS BIKE!!!!!”
