Shining Some Light on the Mongoose

We first laid eyes on Kymco’s ATVs last October at the Supertrax Snowmobile & Powersports Show in Minneapolis. Surrounded by some of the coolest looking Kymco motor scooters we’d ever seen was the Mongoose 250.

This full-sized Sport ATV uses a 249cc single overhead cam 4-stroke connected to a belt driven CVT transmission. Yup, a unique combo in this class but good enough to win the 250 class in the Spanish Baja Desert Endurance race last October and, although the Mongoose isn’t a hardcore Sport Performance offering, it’s beautifully detailed, high quality plastic, excellent wheels and tires and familiar engineering probably cloned from some of the 4-wheelers we know and love in North America.

Kymco has been around since 1963 and, by 1998, had rolled its six millionth motorcycle off the assembly line. The company also produces 50 and 90cc Mongoose kids’ models and a rack equipped MXer 150 featuring a CVT tranny, reverse and electric start. New for 2004 is the full sized Utility MXU 250, powered by a 249cc 4-stroke, driving through a continuously variable transmission.

All Kymco ATVs come with a 12 month warranty and are distributed by STR Motorsports in Inman, South Carolina. You can contact them at 800-845-7007 or check the web at www.kymco.com
