The Kymco Downtown 300i is a great machine for commuting and daily errands: it sports the brawn needed to ride two-up with no noticeable effort and the underseat storage is large enough for two helmets, or for some shopping bags if need be. Even more, a watertight small storage compartment with a 12V outlet is perfect for charging your cellphone or other portable gadgets on the go.

At the heart of the Kymco Downtown 300i you'll find a 298cc electronic fuel injection 4-stroke engine coupled to an automatic CVT transmission for easy and convenient operation. Disc brakes provide serious stopping force, while the 5-way adjustable rear shocks can be easily set up for solo or passenger riding, while an optional top case adds even more storage space for weekend trips.

The 2013 Kymco Downtown 300i retails for $5,599 (€4,340), which is close to the motorcycle range, indeed. Now it's only up to you to choose your preferred two-wheeler and hit the road.
