CFMoto launches 500cc UTV in Australia
CFMOTO has shown its intentions to rev-up to the sideby-side market in Australia by unveiling its new U550’s –500cc UTV.
The recent launch was staged at the test facility at Werribee 4X4 Park Melbourne, which provided the opportunity for industry to view the new UTVs and ATVs first hand . Following a staff demonstration highlighting the features of the new range, those in attendance got the opportunity to try the UTVs and ATVs on the rugged test sight. The entry-level model, the U550 offers a powerful 500cc 38HP liquid cooled, Bosch EFI engine, hi-low range, CVT transmission and a fully fitted roof, tow kit and alloys as standard. The U550 LE offers the same as its entry-level sibling but comes standard with electronic power steering (EPS), a heavy winch and is available in four colours. The U550s are sold alongside the company's popular U8, which in 2014, was the highest selling, non-diesel UTV in the country. CFMoto director Michael Poynton said he expected strong growth for the company in the side-by-side market in 2015, predicting sales across the industry could be up as much as 30 per cent in the next 12 months. This is on the back of the ATV/UTV sector's recorded sales of 21,071 units in Australia in 2014. To celebrate the launch, CFMoto announced a national promotion where customers who purchase the U550 LE receive $750 protector bars for their new vehicle free. The offer is valid until 30 June 2015, with further details available on the CFMoto website. • Details: www.mojomotorcycles.com.au
