"Space under the seat can be fitted two helmets, a full face helmet, a half jet helmet."

Why?!!?!?!? still do not understand why they are getting rid of storage?

I may be looking at the Kymco MyRoad 700 as it has full 2-full helmet storage. And, there seems to be some on showrooms that want to be sold quick.

also.. notice how all these new scoots are doing away with adequate footing for passengers. giving them only small pegs or such. Sadly this bike won't be coming to USA.

And.. oh my.. those insect antennae thingies.
Stop with the "sport bike" attempt to evolve scooters. Leave them as scooters.
Provide real foot rests for passenger
Rain mode is stupid
Needs more storage
stop with the "muffler sound is exciting".
Drop the muffler and you can drop the body of the trunk down some more.
love the other improvements especially the dash!!

It looks like a Yamaha T-Max, which doesn't have luggage and everyday practicalness as priorities.

anyone know of a release date? There's only one dealer in OK... about 2.5 hours away from me. maintenance would be killer then.

Me too but maybe their bad experience w/ the 700 soured them on anything large here.

Honestly I think their attempt to sell the MyRoad 700i was half assed as it seems to me with all their products not just here but in the UK/EU from some reading. Also trying to sell it in the same price as the Burgman 650 I thought hurt too. Worse yet was the crappy seat that many simply sat on and decided it was too cramped. The AK550 looks a bit more promising assuming they didn't copy the Tmax's handlebar placement and did better with the ergonomics. I bought the MyRoad because I got it at a price I liked (didn't want to pay as more than my new at the time '09 B650) which leaves me plenty of room to customize the seat at some point.

How have you liked the MyRoad 700 and what mileage does it get and does it call for regular grade fuel? What about maint access and also potential belt changes? What about valve adjustment intervals?

Yes I like the MyRoad very much minus the seat which I will modify at some point.


The bike requires premium fuel like the BMW's for which Kymco manufactures the engines. Mileage wise it can vary from pretty poor if you are in the throttle heavily (37 mpg) or pretty good at moderate speeds/throttle much like the B650 (between steady 70-75 mph indicated (46 mpg). Here's where I keep track of my bikes. http://www.fuelly.com/dashboard .


As far as maintenance most things are easy to get to. Oil and filter changes you do not need to take any bodywork off (I do remove the engine skid just to keep oil from getting in there but it isn't necessary). There is a small maintenance cover on the top of the center tunnel to get at the spark plugs but I do not yet know about the valve clearance check as I only have 5,200 miles on it. The CVT is part of the left swing arm and is easy to access so belts, rollers, and clutch are no big job. The most difficult item to access is the air filter which requires removing the rear end body (not terribly difficult just a lot to remove), why they didn't provide a bottom cover to slip it in and out I'll never know. Oh and I'm not looking forward to removing the rear tire as it appears you have to remove the right side of the swing arm to get it off. Here's a few photos.
