If it’s versatility you want, look no further! Not only has KYMCO introduced an all-new middleweight ATV with a modern and high-end look, but with 33hp and 39Nm from the liquid-cooled and fuel-injected powerplant towing is a breeze and even the toughest terrain hardly raises an eyebrow. Standard fitments include a front bumper and indicators. Modern flair but still with the simplicity that farmers and agriculturalists love: the MXU 550i EPS has all bases covered.
The fuel-injected 501cc, DOHC, four-stroke, four-valve, single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine produces 25kW (34hp) at 6500rpm and 39Nm at 5500rpm. That means getting the job done in a simple, no-fuss manner – and with some horsepower to spare if you want to finish the day with a little bit of fun!
