After having seen the behavior of the Kymco Yager GT 300i, today is the turn to talk about the little one, the Kymco Yager GT 125i and the differences between one model and the other, which are rather minimal if not non-existent.
We did half the route with the more powerful of the two and then we got on the 125 cc, immediately observing that if we did it with our eyes closed we would not know if we were on one or the other. Its dimensions are identical (2,110 mm in length and 1,470 mm in wheelbase) so the only difference lies in the greater weight of the 300 as it naturally incorporates a larger engine.
Kymco Yager GT 125i: increased agility, slight lack of momentum
Already with the engine of the Kymco Yager GT 125i on the go, the first hit of gas let us down a bit. As with the 300, the 125 Yager has less power than the K-XCT (almost three less horsepower). We knew that their performance was going to be a little lower because they compete in different categories but at the first gas stroke. we notice a void too steep until the bike started up.
To give you an idea, it's as if the first 800 laps after idling were useless. After these, the variator already acts and we began to move but the touch was a bit strange.
By talking to the Kymco people, we confirmed our suspicions. The magic of electronic injection is that at all times its 16-bit control unit decides how much mixture to inject into the cylinders regardless of the pilot's intentions. But at the same time, a bit of that immediacy is lost between the grip and the rear wheel. But it is something that we also noticed in the Suzuki Burgman 125 So it is forbidden to be alarmed, especially because it then presents a flat and exemplary power and torque curve.
The Kymco Yager GT 125i it is even more agile if possible than the 300 since there is a little more weight. As the chassis has been oversized To house the two engines, it will be practically impossible to put him in trouble or to the part of the cycle that he also shares with his older brother.
The sensation of suspension jump when starting from a standstill that we discussed yesterday on the 125 is not so noticeable due to its lower torque. And continuing with their suspensionsThey are very comfortable, ideal for moving around the city with all its potholes, sewers, cobbled areas, etc.
The brakes they go superbly. With almost ten kilos less inertia, it is able to stop the Kymco Yager GT 125i with a lot of power and touch. Another advantage of sharing components.
In short, the only difference that we can find between both models is the engine itself. That is, by radicalizing it, we could take the engine of one and transfer it to the other without problems.
Kymco Yager GT 125i / 300i, duo
Let us finally analyze the space for the passenger at Kymco Yager GT 125i / 300i. The seat is slightly divided into two heights, which makes it easier for our passenger to see ahead more comfortably.
The seat ends in a small back that prevents acceleration from going backwards. In addition, to catch us if we believe it necessary, both handholds that extend to the rear rack.
The footpegs They carry an identical system to that of the previous Yager. It is called "one touch" and consists of a generously sized button that we can operate with our own foot and causes the footrest to unfold automatically. This way we don't have to use our hands and not even bend down.
Although we did not have a passenger in the test, we did sit in the back seat for a few minutes. We quickly perceive how there is a lot of room so we will not overwhelm the driver or continually head butt him.
Tomorrow, the last part of the test we will focus on the c load capacity, some detail that has remained in the inkwell and our final assessment in addition to the usual gallery and technical sheets.
