Kymco Like 125

At the very top of the list of scooters up for consideration as my next ride in a couple of years or so was the Kymco Like 125.  If I were to go out and buy a scooter now, it would be this bike.  I simply fell in love with the killer combination of retro looks, decent quality, and very affordable price. 

Ultimately though, it was the very spacious under seat compartment and the stock rear carrier luggage box that sealed the deal.  I typically carried a lot of stuff with me going to work and back and the availability of a large storage space would be quite a boon.  Heh!

Of course, I’d be getting a red one, red being my favorite color and all.  The one featured in the Kymco Philippines website was white as you can plainly see in the pic above.  A quick search with Google however got me the following pic from the Scenic Tours site:
