Powersports distributor KYMCO USA will provide scooter demo rides at the sixth American Motorcyclist Association International Women & Motorcycling Conference, which will be held in Carson City, Nevada, July 26-29.
“KYMCO scooters are fun, practical and easy to ride,” said Tigra Tsujikawa, AMA marketing manager. “With their automatic transmissions, they offer riders with little or no shifting experience a great opportunity to participate in the sport, and for more-experienced riders, they are an enjoyable and sensible approach to the motorcycling lifestyle. We are very pleased to have KYMCO on hand in Carson City to show off their exciting new lineup.”
The KYMCO USA scooter line includes a wide range of models and colors, including the Xciting 500 Ri ABS, powered by a 500cc fuel-injected dual overhead cam engine and featuring anti-lock brakes. Other models range in engine size from 50-300cc, and many feature sleek European and retro styling.
“The women motorcycling market is an important segment to KYMCO USA, and we’re looking forward to bringing our demo fleet of scooter models to Carson City this summer,” said KYMCO USA Director of Marketing Rick Pawelka.
The 2012 AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference will feature a number of motorcycling seminars, the marketplace and Moto Action center, featured speakers, the Friday Night Cookout and Saturday Night Celebration Party, and a Women’s Health Fair where women can get a variety of health screenings such as mammograms and cholesterol and blood pressure checks. Conference participants will also have the opportunity to donate blood to the Red Cross.
