Tough. Reliable. And a heck of a lot of fun! ATV
Adventure is everywhere and the trip only begins when the asphalt ends. Which is why we carry two great lines of UTV’s and ATV’s from Kioti and Cub Cadet. Stop by the showroom and see a demo today!
With the average 500cc-class ATV costing in the neighborhood of $9,000 and the average UTV costing even more, we know that test-driving a rig around the dealer’s parking lot just doesn’t cut it when it comes time to buy. We asked some of Alaska’s toughest ATV owners to take a break from moose season in September in order to ride, assess and speak their minds about the industry’s five most practical and popular mid-power wheelers. Kymco is a Taiwan-based company that has become a fixture in the American ATV market. Known more for their scooters, we see the company growing in this market with support and service being the key to their success. Many companies overlook support and service and thus get moved into the round file of major players. For the 2010 model year, Kymco will improve upon what is offered at the end of the sale by adding a few goodies to their MXU and UXV lines. The LE, or Limited Edition, models in the MXU product line will include items such as a winch, alloy wheels, rear cargo box and gear grips. The hand guards on the LE models will also include rearview mini mirrors for added benefit. Then moving onto the UXV 500LE, we see the addition of a full, cloth-cab enclosure as well as full windshield, gear rail packages and a gas pack for the longer days on the trail. The UXV gets a winch as well, but the rating is moved from 2500 pounds as seen on the MXU line to a hefty 3000-pound version for the added weight in the vehicle. The packages make the line of Limited Edition models from Kymco a great value, according to the PR manager Rick Pawelka. And with pricing nailed down, this is sure to attract many consumers. These LE models fall right in place at $5999 for the MXU 375 LE and $6999 for the MXU 500 IRS LE. The UXV500 will come in under ten grand at an amazing $9499 with all the additional hardware. That is great pricing for the additional features on the models.
