Kymco Racing King 180 Design

To make the Racing King 180 ABS stand out from the rest of the scooters of the segment, Kymco used a few interesting elements. At the front, the Racing King has a dual headlamp setup with a flame-shape design. We also have the LED daytime running lights which are an integral part of the headlamp assembly and are located at the bottom. We really like this entire combination.

The side turn signals are located above near the handlebar. They also have a nice design. Another feature of the Racing King that brings out the sportiness is the golden color USD forks at the front. They not only improve the handling of the scooter but also look brilliant, and so do the petal disc brakes.

Moving to the rear of the Racing King 180 ABS, we encounter the beefy exhaust which fits in perfectly and a large rear tail light assembly. The brake light has horizontal LED bars which might help you to recognize this scooter.

Kymco has also done a good job in designing the instrument cluster. It features an analog tachometer and a full-color digital panel that tells a lot of necessary information. The faux carbon fiber finish around the instrument console is also a nice touch that adds to the sportiness to the scooter. Overall, the Racing King is a fantastic-looking scooter.


Racing King 180 Ride & Handling

Kymco has used high-quality parts in the Racing King 180 ABS to make it a top performer. The incorporation of USD front forks is a clear indication that the ride on this scooter will be great. The suspension setup seems to be tuned just right to provide a perfect balance between high-end performance and comfortable city ride. The wide tires provide a good amount of grip to help you tackle corners with more than expected speeds. Also, they are good at maneuvering through city traffic.


Kymco Racing King 180 Engine & Fuel Consumption

Kymco Racing King 180 ABS specs mention a 175.1cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke engine with fuel injection and a single overhead cam. It has been tuned to churn out a max power of 17.8 PS at 8500 rpm and generate a peak torque of 15.5 Nm that kicks in at 7000 rpm. The transmission here is of course CVT.

The power and torque figures are sufficient for a scooter that weighs 127 kg. It is quite easy to ride and handle in the city and also gives a good performance on open highways. With all the power, the Racing King 180 ABS is capable of achieving a top speed of 151 kmph.

Racing King 180 Braking & Safety

The braking setup on the Racing King 180 ABS is phenomenal. We have dual disc brakes at the front and a single disc brake at the rear. These are petal discs which work brilliantly even during aggressive braking situations. And on top of that, the Racing King 180 ABS, as its name suggests, is armed with an anti-lock braking system. It is a dual channel system which means it is active on both the front and rear wheel. The braking performance of the Racing King is further improved by the wide 120/70-12 tire at the front and 140/70-12 tire at the rear.

Kymco Racing King 180 Verdict

There are many automatic scooters available in the market with a price similar to Kymco Racing King 180 ABS price of Php 159,900. Brands are having a difficult time making their products different yet desirable and attractive to lure in more buyers. Kymco has also tried to do the same with its Racing King. This scooter offers some of the basic features - a large under seat storage space, 12V power supply, hydraulic seat opening mechanism - along with some other attractive elements - ABS, dual headlamps, LED signature tail light, attractive instrument console. Overall, the Kymco Racing King 180 ABS is really a no-nonsense scooter.
