This probably does not belong here, but here goes. I was at one of our local scooter dealers here in Los Angeles NoHo Scooters, and the Kymco rep just happened to be in the store. So being the pushy guy I am I asked him if he knew if the MyRoad 700i might be coming to the US.
He said that at the last dealer meeting with the factory, that there was a good chance that the MyRoad would indeed be coming to the US. The bikes price would be somewhere around $8000. He also hinted that BMW and their concept C, might be in fact be made by Kymco. Kymco already produces an engine for a dirt bike that BMW makes. Take as scuttlebutt until proven other wise. Thanks, swing2010

I've moved this to a more likely location "Topic for Other Scooters..."
Here's a link to a video and discussion on the Kymco Forum; http://www.kymcoforum.com/index.php?topic=2237.0

The BMW scoot has been pretty well bashed in the Maxi Scoots forum

One littl questionfor comparisation: How much costs the actual Silver Wing in the USA?
The Kymco looks really big but i like it... Possibly in a few years... :D

Well after having to sell my 07 X500,I got things together and bought a 09 SilverWing.
Much more power,more storage under the seat,and a better and lower seat.
I must say the ride of the X500 is MUCH better,I think because of the bigger tires.
