There maybe an issue with fuel flow/delivery. Check the operation of the fuel tap and connecting hose. Has the fuel filter been serviced/replaced? Carburetor float level may not be set correctly, jets maybe dirty and blocked, these are all simple fixes if you are handy with some tools. Otherwise a relatively cheap fix by a dealer or more knowledge on the year/make/model of your scooter. Cheers.

SOURCE: My yamaha raptor has power,
Check the compression, pull the spark plugs one at a time if more then one. If you don't have a compression gauge, you can put your figure over the spark plug hole, be mindful that before it blows it's going to **** so make sure that you don't hurt yourself leave a little gap so your figure doesn't suction down to tight. If your getting compression it should **** and blow pretty hard. If it seems to have good pressure and suction. You might need to check your timing, also make sure that you can feel air moving out the exhaust, might not be able to with the pipes on it but if it won't start and your getting everything else it needs to run gas,spark, etc. It has to almost be timing or compression.

Take your spark plug out of the cylinder, reconnect it to the ht lead and place it on to your frame if you see a spark then your coil is fine, try a new spark plug, if there is no spark get a new coil and plug.
Remember there is a 2t and a 4t version of the kymco vitality and the spark plugs are different.
