“The idea ‘Win My Heart’ is within everything we do at KYMCO,” said Allen Ko, KYMCO Chairman. “In this time of a global pandemic, people, more than ever, have strong desires to add excitement into their everyday lives. And we are thrilled to present KYMCO’s latest endeavors to satisfy the unfulfilled needs of our customers.”

KYMCO KRV, the World’s First Compact Scooter to Feature an Independent Swing-arm Derived from the Motorbike Architecture, Offers Unrivaled Sport Riding Capability

Compact scooters are the most predominant forms of personal transportation in many countries for being agile, efficient, convenient and easy to use. They serve the purpose of everyday urban mobility as well as occasional weekend excursions. They are at the center of people’s everyday lives. Riders demand nothing but the best from their scooters. And, for these reasons, KYMCO presents KYMCO KRV as the vehicle of their dreams.

KYMCO KRV is a compact sport recreational vehicle equipped with abundant comfort, convenience, handling, and performance. It comes with ABS, TCS, LED lighting and a keyless system. It has a flat-floor RV body design that allows an optimal riding position for both spirited rides and long journeys. The suspension is tuned to suit both a single rider and when carrying a passenger. The belt-drive design not only offers quiet rides, but also requires less maintenance.

Moreover, KRV features an independent swing-arm derived from the motorbike architecture of KYMCO’s flagship model AK 550. It not only allows a lower center of gravity and perfect weight balance to the vehicle, but also provides the highest ride quality and maximum cornering capability. Combined with the newly developed 175cc 4-valve liquid-cooled engine that provides strong and smooth power delivery, KRV provides the exceptional sport riding experiences unseen on compact scooters.

“KYMCO F9, DT X360 and KRV all come with innovations that stir senses, intensify emotions and excite riders,” said Allen Ko. “As we continue to create personal vehicles that win the hearts of consumers all over the world, now, it’s time to excite!”
