“Over 11-plus years in Australia, KYMCO has become synonymous with high-quality, excellent-value scooters, ATVs and Side-by-Side vehicles, all of which are supported by a strong and far-reaching dealer network across the country. If you think KYMCO is a small-time player you’re very much mistaken. Not only did KYMCO sell more than 664,000 vehicles across 110 countries last year, it also supplies engines and complete vehicles for the likes of BMW, Kawasaki and Arctic Cat. In Taiwan, which has a similar population to Australia of around 25 million, there are more than 3600 KYMCO dealers alone. Based on land area, that’s one dealer for every 10-square kilometres.”
Kymco is distributed in Australia and New Zealand by locally-owned company Mojo Motorcycles, which is also responsible for CFMOTO, Lambretta, Landboss, Sherco and SWM.
