KYMCO USA of Spartanburg, SC introduced a pair of new off-road vehicles for 2009 at its first annual dealer meeting.
Both the UXV 500 and MXU 375, according to KYMCO, are designed to appeal directly to consumers who are more closely considering the pocketbook when purchasing a new ATV or UTV.
With the UXV 500, KYMCO made the leap into the burgeoning side-by-side market. The vehicle, which will have a base MSRP of just under $8,000, is powered by a 498.5cc 4-stroke DOHC liquid-cooled engine that pumps out 33 horsepower and has a towing capacity of 1,200 pounds. You can also carry an additional 420 pounds in the cargo bed.
"The UXV 500 brings the side-by-side utility everyone wants into a price range that everyone can afford," says Bruce Ramsey, KYMCO USA sales and marketing vice president. "When we unveiled it at our annual dealer meeting, it truly impressed the crowd. The UXV is definitely one of the best received products KYMCO has ever released."
