Sweet sixtieth for Kymco

More than six decades of making motorcycles is quite an achievement, and it’s Taiwanese firm Kymco’s turn to blow out sixty candles on the two-wheeled manufacturing cake.

The company has been making bikes since 1964, starting out as a manufacturing partner for Honda Japan before striking out with its own range of bikes and scooters in 1992. It’s gone from strength to strength since then, particularly in its home market and mainland Europe, and is now a major manufacturer with several production centres, producing more than half a million bikes each year at its Taiwan factory alone.

Kymco UK is pulling out all the stops for its 60th anniversary, offering what it says are unbeatable deals on two of its learner bikes. The £2559 Agility City+ 125 scooter now comes with free on-the-road (OTR) fees and a free SHAD top box – a package that saves customers an average of £230. Meanwhile, the £2559 VSR 125 naked geared learner bike is upgraded with a free Delkevic performance exhaust with carbon silencer worth around £200. “These offers, along with the added security of Datatool’s Stealth Tracker (subscription required) and DNA Security Marking System, are a testament to our commitment to providing our customers with the best possible riding experience,” said Neil Keeble, sales and marketing manager at Kymco UK. “We are optimistic about the future growth of Kymco as a motorcycle manufacturer in the UK, as several competitive models with attractive offers serve as a tempting low-cost alternative to our rivals. While some may be new to the Kymco brand, we will actually be 60 years old in 2024–and our long-established existence and experience remain the core reason why we’re a trusted brand of reliable and well-built products among our customers around the world.”
