The Super 9 is a lightweight scooter made by Kymco. It has modern performance styling, as opposed to the retro styling seen on many scooters.[2] It can accommodate a rider and passenger, having aluminum passenger footpegs and a large seat. It has an underseat storage box for a full face helmet. It can reach about 80kmh in stock form. The engine design is based on Honda's AF18E/AF16E Dio motor.[3]

The Super 9 is popular worldwide. It was sold in North America from 2003 to 2009 (Canada from 2005). When it failed to meet U.S. emissions regulations in 2008 it was replaced by the Super 8.[3]
