    KYMCO MXU 700

    KYMCO has recalled 2013-15 MXU 700 ATVs due to potential burn, fire hazards.

    According to the recall notice, in hot environments or high elevations, the fuel cap can fail to vent properly, causing the fuel to heat up and pressure to build up in the tank. The pressure can cause the fuel tank to rupture or the fuel to boil out of the tank onto the operator or hot engine, resulting in burns to the operator or a fire.

      2015 Suzuki KingQuad 500AXi Red

      Suzuki has been eerily quiet on the ATV front since the 2009 model year, pretty much leaving the lineup untouched. We’ve seen the first signs that things may be progressing this week as Suzuki unveiled an updated KingQuad 500AXi for 2015.

      According to Suzuki, the KingQuad 500AXi receives a few new changes designed to provide smoother acceleration, quicker throttle response, and a stronger feel in the mid-high RPM range. The front end of the ATV receives a newer aggressive stance, while a side panel change allows you to more easily check your oil level without removing any body parts.

          Two Up ATVs

          The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is gathering information from the public regarding passengers on ATVs.

          Specifically, the CPSC has issued a Request for Information (RFI) on the matter, seeing information on the prevalence of carrying passengers on ATVs and the feasibility of a performance requirement that would prevent passengers from being carried on ATVs.
