Auto Expo 2008: Kinetic

Kinetic was not at the show. Among the reasons being offered were a) the Flyte launch and its popularity is forcing them to look seriously at expanding production and stuff, so the Expo would have diluted that. And b) this is a little known fact, that the Auto Expo is a seriously expensive place to participate in. It is, if not the most expensive, one of the most expensive shows to participate in. Yes, I am told the Milan Motorcycle Show is a whole lot cheaper. Kinetic plans to launch the Euro, the Italjet line Flyte competitor at some point this year. The scooter is production ready, but the rest remains to be worked out. Given the surfeit of CBUs coming, I would like to urge Kinetic to offer a regular CBU/CKD big scooter as well. Sym has a nice to ride 250, that might go down well, methinks.
