MXU 500i & 500i LE return completely redesigned, UXV side-by-side family offers special model
KYMCO USA is going big in 2013, introducing the largest displacement off-road vehicles it has ever offered – the MXU 700i and MXU 700i LE.
MXU 700i / MXU 700i LE
Designed and built to meet the high standards demanded by ATV users, the MXU 700i (MSRP: $8,599) and MXU 700i LE ($9,399) models are motivated by a fuel-injected 695cc SOHC 4-stroke 4-valve water-cooled engine producing 45hp.
Power is transferred via shaft drive with push-button on-demand 2WD/4WD, transmission duties are handled by a tough automatic CVT (H-L-N-R-P) with differential lock, the front suspension receives an independent dual A-arm set-up with five-position adjustable pre-load oil damped shocks, the rear suspension receives the same treatment plus the addition of a sway bar, a 25×8-12 front and 25×10-12 rear tire/wheel package aids in achieving a log-crossing 10.4 inches of ground clearance, the 4.42-gallon fuel tank will keep you on trail, and a hydraulic dual-disc front and shaft-mounted hydraulic disc rear brake system safely reels the entire package down from speed.
The MXU 700i, available in black, green or red, comes outfitted with left and right topside (locking) fender storage, right rear under-fender storage, a 12v accessory outlet, a pre-wired winch mounting plate and steel wheels.
The MXU 700i LE, available in painted metallic silver, is further equipped from the factory with aluminum alloy wheels, a 3,000-lb winch, and Kenda Bounty Hunter tires (26×9-14 front, 26×11-14 rear).
Other highlights in KYMCO USA’s 2013 off-road product line include the completely redesigned MXU 500i and MXU 500i LE, as well as the specially equipped UXV 500i SP side-by-side vehicle.
MXU 500i / MXU 500i LE
The all-new MXU 500i ($7,499) and MXU 500i LE ($8,299) received a variety of updates and improvements, both in style and function. Powered by a fuel-injected 499cc DOHC 4-stroke 4-valve liquid-cooled engine developing 36hp, the two 500cc models feature the same new chassis and running gear components as the newly introduced 700cc models.
The MXU 500i, available in black, green or red, comes outfitted with left and right topside (locking) fender storage, right rear under-fender storage, a 12v accessory outlet, pre-wired winch mounting plate and steel wheels.
The MXU 500i LE, like its larger sibling, also comes in painted metallic silver and with aluminum alloy wheels, a 3,000-lb. winch, and Kenda Bounty Hunter tires (26×9-14 front, 26×11-14 rear).
UXV 500i SP
A new addition to KYMCO’s side-by-side family of vehicles, the UXV 500i SP ($10,499) was designed to offer increased amenities to customers apt to use their UXV for recreational opportunities rather than utility purposes.
Powered by KYMCO’s fuel-injected 499cc DOHC 4-stroke 4-valve liquid-cooled engine, the nimble UXV 500i SP further features push-button on-demand 2WD/4WD, an automatic CVT (H-L-N-R-P) with differential lock, an independent dual A-arm suspension fore and aft featuring high-performance fully adjustable oil-damped KAIFA shocks, hydraulic dual-disc front and shaft-mounted hydraulic disc rear brakes, and 26×9-14 front and 26×11-14 rear Kenda Bounty Hunter tires on aluminum alloy wheels.
Like all of KYMCO’s UXV models, the 500i SP comes standard with a 420-lb capacity cargo bed, 1,200-lb. towing capacity, 2-inch receiver hitch, locking glove box, underseat and under hood storage, multi-function digital instrument display and 12V accessory outlet.
However, special amenities added to this particular model include a soft top, half windshield, rear cab net, rear cargo net, light bar with four KYMCO-designed LED lights, a spare tire rack with extra 26-inch tire and aluminum wheel, two-tone (black & red) washable seat covers, dual beverage holders and a protective rear bumper.
