Kymco makes no bones the fact that their are a great way to get into the world of power sports on the ground and they are not initially set up to go out and race weekend. The price is right it is for a reason, and we knew this into the game. Keeping in mind, we set out on a day of testing in the newly UXV500i.

The UXV had no trouble firing up, and as we sat in the cab of the work favorable UTV we noticed the that surrounded the machine. Cup are standard and the glove box can hold a few of water for the day’s ride. The hood storage is a bit bigger for cargo that needs to be in place.

The fact that the will be more versatile in any changes or temperatures is the biggest for now.

The suspension on the UXV worked as intended, and though we wanted much the price point wasn’t Climbing steep grades the lack of torque in the power but the UXV did handle these steeper and the rigid frame and suspension to help keep the machine to the ground.
