It also comes with a disc at the rear wheel, which is very rear when it comes to scooters. The dual disc setup will put the braking of the Lifan KPV150 over many other scooters of the same segment. From the company profile, it can be assumed that the bike will come stocked with single channel ABS, but Dual-channel ABS will be optional. However, it is unclear whether you can turn the ABS off or not.
The Lifan KPV150 has regular telescopic forks and a mono-shock at the rear. The front suspension of the bike is expected to perform adequately, as it can be expected to be off-road tuned.

Pros and Cons:
The Lifan KPV150, although being a very good scooter has its pros and cons.
Very secured body.
Very attractive design.
The Lifan KPV150, regardless of the power and the attractive design, is a scooter. It was not made to attract bikers; it was made to attract scooter lovers; but still, it attracts both.
