Asheville, North Carolina -
KYMCO UXV500 LE UTV
has become one of the latest off-road manufacturers
to add a custom look to its off-road machines.
Customers dig unique models and distinctive features
and that’s why many pony up the extra Benjamins
for special features. It’s something that
will set both a buyer and their machine apart
from the rest of the pack. For 2010, KYMCO announced
its first-ever Limited Edition models, along with
two other new quads. The UXV LE is the flagship
and is joined by the MXU 375 LE and MXU 500 LE
ATVs as well as the crossover Maxxer 375 4x4 and
updated MXU 500 with IRS.
We tested the UXV LE at the 2010 press launch,
which was held on the spectacular Biltmore Estate
property in Asheville, N.C. The Land Rover Driver
Training Center at Biltmore Estate was the proving
grounds for the KYMCO models. With its models
dressed to impress, KYMCO sure chose an appropriate
facility for this test.

KYMCO essentially is banking on the fact that
its LE models feature highly desirable accessories
and its ability to “make a volume purchase.”
That simply means you get more for your money
— a more attractive machine with more
capabilities. KYMCO says the package is valued
at $2,085 and costs the buyer around $1,400.
has introduced their newest UTV - the
UXV500 LE. Customers can purchase the
extra "package" for around $1400
& get over $2000 in desireable accesories.
It features a rollcage built by Seizmik
with full zip-up doors, options for a
half or full windshield & an upgraded
Priced at $9,499, the UXV LE still comes in
under the magical $10,000 mark for a UTV. On
top of that, the side-by-side carries a more
refined finished and looks upscale compared
to the stock UXV. Based on customer and dealer
input, KYMCO chose the impressive black plastic
and alloy wheels. But its other accessories
really make it shine.
UXV 500 LE model also comes with alloy
wheels and aftermarket parts made by Kolpin
Powersports such as the utility bed-rail
KYMCO not only outfitted its biggest 4x4 with
a special look, it went one step further by
partnering with proven aftermarket stalwarts
Kolpin Powersports and Seizmik. One way to gain
even more market share and branding is to team
with successful and respected companies, said
KYMCO. Basically, KYMCO says it’s about
adding market value and developing a KYMCO-branded
accessory line without starting from scratch.
500 LE has many more feautures including
a front mounted winch to get you out of
any sticky situations & a utility
dumb box rated at a 400lb capacity &
the new black plastic will keep you looking
good while out in the field
The first obvious difference between the standard
model and the UXV LE is the soft cab enclosure.
To accompany the cab, the LE KYMCO touts an
upscale exterior thanks to sexy black skin and
matching two-tone alloy wheels. Above the rear
bed, a Kolpin gear rail package, complete with
an auxiliary fuel can, improves the UTV’s
chore-tackling abilities. Finally, KYMCO engineers
opted for a hearty 3,000-pound winch, which
wears the KYMCO brand.
