KYMCO manufactures over 40 scooter models, more than a dozen motorcycles, and close to 20 ATVs. They have been ISO 13485 certified since 2003. KYMCO can manufacture over 1000 vehicles in each of its facilities every day - that amounts to nearly 500,000 per year! KYMCO manufactured over 5 million motorcycles in its first 4 years of production. Models are manufactured to the specifications required for each export market - Canada has its own production line to meet CMVSS standards.

Every single vehicle undergoes quality control prior to leaving the factory doors. Molding, forging, casting, gear machining, engine assembly, welding, and painting are part of an integrated CIM system. All structural welds are x-rayed to guarantee integrity. All engines are started and checked prior to being installed in the vehicle.

Since 1989, KYMCO has spent years on the R&D of new technologies such as their 700cc liquid-cooled fuel injection engine. KYMCO now manufactures a 700cc scooter, the MyRoad 700i - one of the largest and most powerful in the world! The introduction of a 3 position electrical adjustment rear suspension system presents cutting-edge technology with the comfort of riders in mind. Features such as ABS brake systems, keyless remote ignition, antitheft, tire pressure monitoring, larger storage capacity for up to 2 helmets, and more will be integrated into KYMCO's newest models, specifically the MyRoad 700i.
