KYMCO MXU 700i/500i LE 50th ANNIVERSARY EPS
Kymco knows how to offer premium ATVs with quality
that matches Japanese and North American products.
They learned from companies like Kawasaki, Arctic Cat
and BMW, all of which offer Kymco-made products in
their own dealerships. At the top of the Kymco line for
2015 are the LE 50th Anniversary models, which have
upgraded wheels, tires and a winch. They also have
KAWASAKI BRUTE FORCE 750 ($8999)
The Kawasaki Brute Force remains the biggest, most
powerful ATV produced by a Japanese company. For the
record, it’s made in Lincoln, Nebraska, but it’s big nonetheless. The motor is a 749cc V-twin, and it has independent
suspension. The rear brake is a sealed, multi-disc unit,
much like a wet clutch. The power-steering version is $1000
more, and there are other premium options available.
KYMCO MXU 700i/500i ($8599/$7499)
The MXU line is finally offering all the same features as
other premium ATV companies, but at lower prices. The
new 700 and 500 offer camo for an additional $200. And,
this year power steering is a new option that will cost only
an additional $600. The MXUs already offer independent
suspension, push-button 4WD and electronic fuel injection.
KYMCO MXU450i ($6199)
The Kymco 450 is priced slightly higher than the classic
500 because it’s a new motor offering newer technology.
The heart of the beast is a 443cc, single-overhead-cam,
liquid-cooled single that is said to produce 33 horsepower.
Induction is through a Synerject EFI system. Power steering isn’t yet offered on the 450. The camo model is $6399,
and the LE 50th anniversary is $6699.
KYMCO MXU500 CLASSIC ($5999)
Kymco can offer the classic 500 at a lower price because
it has somewhat simpler technology than the newer
machines in the line. It’s powered by a liquid-cooled, carbureted DOHC four-stroke motor that is said to produce
36 horsepower. It has on-demand 4WD and front diff-lock.
There’s a storage bin, a 12-volt accessory outlet and a
2-inch receiver hitch. Available in red or green.
KYMCO MAXXER 450i ($6899)
This is Kymco’s take on a sporty 4x4 quad, along the
same lines as the Can-Am Renegade and the Polaris
Scrambler, but in a smaller, less extravagant package.
The motor is the same as that of the MXU450i, with liquid
cooling and a single overhead cam. The motor breathes
through a Synerject throttle body and produces a claimed
33 horsepower. The Maxxer has on-demand 4WD and
