KYMCO launched its first adventurous scooter, the DT X360, a model that arrives with sporty and aggressive design, two-tone paint and a typical “tip” for adventurous motorcycles.
After Honda’s pioneering spirit, which started the adventurous scooter category with the X-ADV in 2017 and, more recently, with the ADV 150, the Taiwanese brand did not want to be left out.
Thinking of the public that not only thinks of a scooter for urban use, but also that one that occasionally takes a dirt road, the brand brings the DT X360, considered an adventurous MaxiScooter crossover.
KYMCO DT X360 features the vertical proportions and the front fender (“nozzle”) that characterize the spirit of a ‘dual sport’ bike, the ‘crossovers’.
It has wider handlebars for easy steering on uneven pavement and a higher seating position that improves the pilot’s visibility.
Aluminum wheels and mixed-use tires further increase your ability to ride on uneven surfaces.
Despite the adventurous appeal and the tires, the model does not have long-haul suspensions, nor a great clearance from the ground.
The KYMCO DT X360 comes standard with a Keyless starter system, traction control system, fully digital color LCD panel, Full-LED lighting and space under the seat for two integral helmets.
Despite the name ‘X360’, it has a 320.6 cm³ single cylinder engine with liquid cooling, capable of generating up to 28.4 HP of maximum power and 3.1 kgfm / 30Nm of torque. The gearbox is of the CVT type and the fuel tank capacity is 12.5 liters.
The tires have the following measures: 120 / 80-14 at the front and 150 / 70-13 at the rear.
Anyway, if we consider the category of scooter adventure, the KYMCO DT X360 arrives to be a middle ground, and stays between the Honda ADV 150 (150 cc) and Honda X-ADV (750 cc). If we consider scooters focused on urban use and on the road, it will fight with Honda Forza 350 and Yamaha XMax 300, among others.
