Immediately, AK 550 received notices of high recognitions from customers around the world and we have been running at full capacity to keep up with the large demand. AK 550 successfully delivers an unparalleled “The Thrills of Touring” riding experience. It not only showcases the technologies and know -hows that KYMCO has accumulated over the past 50 years, but it has also brought KYMCO to a new ground as one of the most respected global brands.
While AK 550 pioneers a new scooter segment “Super Touring,” it also launches a new era of IOV, the Internet of Vehicles. AK 550 is the first KYMCO model to be equipped with the all-new “Connected Scooter Experience” Noodoe. It is the world first IOV experience designed from the perspective of the riders. Through the launch of AK 550 and subsequent other models, in just four months, over 20,000 consumers have become KYMCO Noodoe lovers. They have generated over 100,000 creations on the Noodoe cloud, every one of them incorporating an individual's own personality, creativity, and imagination. We have brought a wonderful everyday experience to everyone with innovative technologies.

After the high recognitions from customers around the world for the “Super Touring” AK 550 that commemorates KYMCO’s 50 year anniversary, this year KYMCO introduced the C Series Concept at the 2017 EICMA. The C Series Concept defines the latest KYMCO innovation of “Adventure Tourer”, a new maxi scooter segment that provides riders with “The Luxury of Discovery” and fulfills their dreams of exploring the uncharted.
The C Series Concept is comprised of two vehicles, the CV2 Concept and the CV3 Concept; the “V2” indicates two-wheeled and the “V3” indicates three-wheeled vehicles. The C Series Concept aims to provide riders who seek grand leisure lifestyle the ultimate in comfort and practicality for long trips, together with light adventure features and capability for the fun of discovery.
