Kymco has been teasing us for a long while now with that thing. Question is, will they finally put it into production and how long will it take before Piaggio sues them?

Those front hydraulic tilt lock rams look awfully similar to what Piaggio uses.

The Yamaha Niken does not have tilt lock, but it does appear the Kymco uses the Ackerman principle with the twin front struts.

Until Kymco finally puts that thing in production after cockteasing for so long, I am putting this in the vaporware bin.
