People S arrives on the market with an engine that is increasingly careful and respectful of the environment: the G5 engine series is enriched with the new "Eco" evolution, which guarantees very high performance with low fuel consumption. It is an engine that once again highlights Kymco's ability to develop increasingly advanced technologies.
The Taiwanese single-cylinder in this new version sports the features of the bigger Kymco G5 engines. The engineers have carefully studied each internal element in motion (whether rotary or alternating), in order to then optimize its shape and materials. The 4-valve cylinder head ensures optimal filling of the combustion chamber, guaranteeing a high volumetric efficiency. But even more interesting is the type of distribution: the Kymco G5 engine interposes a high-speed ball bearing between the cam and rocker arm, which allows a reduction of friction losses from 20% to 30%.
Furthermore, the forced air cooling guarantees the stability of the operating temperatures and the reduction to a minimum of the dimensions of the engine accessories.
The scooter is available in two versions:
People S 125i ABS: single cylinder 4-stroke 125cc, 4 valves, electronic injection, air-cooled. Max power shaft 8.3 kW (11.3 HP) at 8,500 rpm, max. to the shaft 10.4 Nm at 7,000 rpm.
People S 150i ABS: single-cylinder, 4-stroke 150 cc, four valves, electronic injection, air-cooled. Max power shaft 10.3 kW (14 HP) at 8,500 rpm, max. to the shaft 12.0 Nm at 7,000 rpm.
