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.
Kymco enters the 2015 model year with 32 off-road models, including four versions of the all-new midsized UXV 450i side-by-side vehicle and a UXV 500i outfitted with a 5kW generator sure to help operators with a variety of utility applications and chores. Also on the list of new vehicles are four EPS models in the MXU Series ATV line and two newly designed Youth Quads in the Mongoose 90S and 70S.
One of the big features of the inaugural American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo), which opens its doors on Oct. 16, is AIMExpo Outdoors!, the event’s interactive and experiential outdoors space. The nearly 400,000 square-foot area located on the grounds of Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) will feature a variety of activities throughout the five-day event geared towards trade, media and consumers.
The centerpiece of AIMExpo Outdoors! are the demo areas, designated for testing the newest 2014 models for dirt and street. Off-road enthusiasts can enjoy key Suzuki ATVs, while Yamaha will showcase its brand new Viking Side-by-Side. Additionally, Kymco and Massimo Motors will feature a selection of ATVs and Side-by-Sides. For the street, Yamaha will showcase its newly introduced 850cc FZ-09 triple by offering the product’s first public demo rides. Suzuki and KYMCO will also offer demo rides on select road bikes and scooters.
Our friends at Kymco were out west near Moab, Utah for the UTV Rally recently and they sent us some pictures to share with you.
The UTV Rally is one of the events we’d most like to attend, as all the pictures we’ve seen of the area look awesome and the riding looks intense. Maybe next year.
