Kymco unveil three wheel concept
Taiwanese manufacturer Kymco unveiled two concept scooters at this week's Milan Show, one of which has three wheels.
Kymco are classing both bikes as 'adventure tourers', although there doesn't look to be that much potential for adventure with the small wheel size and road tyres. The CV3 is the three wheel version, and looks like a mashup between a Piaggio MP3 and the new Yamaha Niken.
Kymco revealed a teaser video for the models last month, and we believe both models will be powered by the same 550cc parallel twin engine used in the firm's AK550. Kymco haven't confirmed this, and now they expect the new models to have a power output greater than the AK550.
A range of accessories appear to be available for the models, including back rests, passenger seats, panniers and even a roof - much like the BMW C1.

“The C Series Concept is yet another innovation from Kymco that follows after the launch of AK 550 and the Noodoe IOT system,” said Mr. Allen Ko, Chairman of KYMCO Group. “The C Series is introduced with the Kymco Multi-Fit concept to expand the versatility to cover any trip of riding alone or with a passenger. The rear case, side cases, top case, rear seat and hard top are all attachable upon demand; there is even a child footrest. All of these accessories are designed to satisfy the needs of riders for different purposes.”
