KYMCO or Kwang Yang Motor Co, Ltd (Chinese: 光陽工業; pinyin: Guāng Yáng Gōng Yè), is a Taiwanese motorcycle manufacturer. KYMCO’s headquarters and factory are located in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, with about 3000 employees, and producing more than 570,000 vehicles per year. The company has production facilities in Jakarta, Indonesia; Petaling Jaya, Malaysia; Shanghai, Changsha, and Chengdu, PR China. The KYMCO ATVs and Side x Side models are more than capable of meeting the needs of most owners. Their top of the line ATV, the MXU 500i IRS 4×4 would be considered a mid-sized model by most manufacturers, yet it comes equipped with the features they most often look for and at a price that won’t break the bank. We needed to take a closer look. Kymco continues to impress us as they improve their lineup each year. They’ve quietly built the company into an off-road powerhouse and both their products and the company are going to be on the trail for a very long time.
