KYMCO USA has entered a partnership that will have the powersports vehicle specialist produce an ATV to complement the rugged F-150 SVT Raptor off-road performance truck offered by Ford Motor Company.
The KYMCO Built F-150 SVT Raptor Limited Edition MXU 500i is the result of an agreement between KYMCO USA and BDA, inc., the official licensing agent for Ford.
The limited edition ATVs are to be placed on display at participating Ford Truck dealerships during the promotional period. However, they will be offered for sale exclusively through the Ford Collection website www.fordcollection.com and participating KYMCO brand retailers will handle delivery of the ATVs purchased.
"This KYMCO ATV is a perfect brand extension for our F-150 SVT Raptor customers who have an affinity for outdoor adventure, and it’s built to help them practice their adrenaline-filled activities," said John Nens, director of Ford global brand licensing of the MXU 500i. "It also looks the part, with graphics inspired by the same extreme sports and activities customers and enthusiasts of our high-performance truck find so alluring."
The 2011 KYMCO MXU 500i is powered by a fuel-injected 498cc four-stroke, four-valve liquid-cooled engine producing 36 hp, and 7.5 inches of suspension travel. The Limited Edition package items include the custom Metallic Blue finish with Ford F-150 Raptor Graphics, the "Built Ford Tough" badging and unique alloy wheels.
