SPARTANBURG, S.C. - With the 2014 MyRoad 700i, KYMCO USA now offers one of the largest-displacement scooters in the North American market.

Powered by a liquid-cooled, fuel-injected 699.5cc parallel twin engine, the MyRoad 700i puts out a claimed 59 horsepower at 7,250 rpm and 46 lb-ft of torque at 5,500 rpm. That power meets the road through the bike's automatic Continuously Variable Transmission and belt drive.
