KYMCO Side by side is on it's way. Kymco 500 UXV side-by-side.

Here is a little sneak peak.



Kymco 500 UXV side-by-side.

Looks a lot like the Yamaha Rhino. So far Kymco is not saying much about it. It isn't even listed on the Kymcousa site. I am told the weight will be very close to 1200 lbs.

I see all these new SXS' coming out without doors. You would think they would have learned a lesson from Yamaha.

Re: KYMCO Side by side is on it's way. Kymco 500 UXV side-by-side.

ATV Source has the first detailed review of the all new Kymco side-by-side quad that will be coming to the US this summer.

The article appears to be translated from a foreign writer and can be funny to read. In fact, the video link is in German. Nonetheless, some goodies in there. As I assumed, the adopted MXU 500 power plant is no rocketship in this heavy thing - they note it takes awhile to get it up to its top speed of 45mph.

And while others have compared its looks to the Rhino, the writer here points out that there are similarities more with the Prowler in the chassis department, as part of the cooperation with Arctic Cat on some ATV models like the MXU 400/Arctic Cat 366cc.

To be expected on a first year model in a new category, the Kymco has some fit and finish issues as well. But given the growth in the side-by-side segment, I will be interested to see the price point on this model and how it will open up even more doors to new quad enthusiasts.

FWIW, it looks good and sounds like it has some good things going on, and I like that tan color, but on the other hand, I don't know diddle about these things.
