CFMoto launches 500cc UTV in Aus­tralia

Australian Farmers & Dealers Journal - - NEWS -

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:­jo­mo­tor­cy­
