With a weight of 238 kilogrammes, the new Kymco AK Premium challenges the heavyweights in its division. The Yamaha TMAX weighs 216 kilogrammes as a point of reference. But Kymco has made sure that the weight is evenly distributed and that the scooter is simple to use.
The AK Premium is a tough competitor in the premium maxi-scooter market because of its strong engine, fashionable design, and opulent features.
With a suggested retail price of 10,999 Euros (or $12,206 USD) from Kymco, the AK luxury offers a competitive option in the market for luxury maxi-scooters. In fact, at this price range, the premium maxi-scooter retails for 15,613 Euros in its Tech Max trim, which is a few thousand Euros less than the Yamaha TMAX.
The manufacturer thinks that riders looking for a robust, cozy, and stylish scooter capable of managing both city and long-distance trips would find the AK Premium appealing.
