I agree with your Asami interpretation, at least in S1 and some of S2. I was honestly expecting her to become a villain, especially after Korra stole her man. However, by the latter half of the series she really does become a genuinely nice character and develops a really strong relationship with Korra (as either close friends or lovers, however you want to interpret it as),at the cost of becoming more of a background character and just yeah, as you said "a getaway driver". So, the fanbase seeing her as just a getaway driver is because that's literally what she becomes.
But your Asami really could have happened, albeit in a much more kid-friendly way.
Your comparison to Kyoko, however, is not really valid. She's not a loli, and I've never seen a single person say that she serves no purpose other than being cute. In fact, in the series she's an asshole and portrayed as the villain for the majority of her screentime. It's only towards the end of the series that she has a change of heart and starts to work with the others rather than against them It's only in the movie (which is where my profile gif originate from) that she shows a bit of her cute side, but she doesn't play a very large part in the movie and it's not the same universe and therefore not the same version of her as in the series anyway.
So the assumption that people make when they think of Asami is justified because it's exactly how she was written in the latter half of the series, wasted potential or not. Kyoko, on the other hand, is also usually interpreted exactly how she was written, so the example doesnt really work.
