    According to the Taiwanese motorcycle company, the refreshed AK550 is designed to deliver breakthroughs that excite the riders who crave to travel beyond boundaries. Since its launch in 2016, the AK550 has been one of the most sought-after maxi-scoots in Europe as well as here in the Philippines.

    “Despite the international travel restrictions, I am very grateful that Kymco is able to showcase the brand-new AK 550 in EICMA, as Milan is where AK 550 was first introduced. In this challenging time of the post-pandemic era, people, more than ever, have strong desires to add excitement to their travel. And we are thrilled to present Kymco latest endeavors to satisfy the global riders who seek nothing but the best,” said Kymco Chairman Allen Ko.

    The AK550 was named after the company’s 50th anniversary and was made to showcase the technologies and craftsmanship that Kymco has accumulated for more than 50 years. Equipped with a rider-centric design, the AK550 has the perfect integration of sport and premium designs, offering an unparalleled “Super Touring” riding experience with the utmost attention to every detail.

    That said, it’s no wonder why the Kymco AK550 is one of the most popular expressway-legal maxi-scooters in the Philippines where it competes with other maxi-scoots in the segment like the Suzuki Burgman 400, the Suzuki Burgman 400, and the AK550’s smaller brother, the Kymco Xciting S 400i.

    Kymco’s new AK550 features a unique suspension structure, an innovative multi-layered floating panel design, upgraded DRLs, and the latest in electronic controls.

    On top of the features that allow the updated AK550 to provide riders with class-leading performance and ultimate riding pleasure, Kymco gave its flagship maxi-scoot a stylish and elegant center console inspired by piano keys. Here, riders can find classic, intuitive, and user-friendly function keys allowing them to access the most frequently used operations such as fuel tank cap, seat cushion, mileage display, and handlebar locks.

    In addition, the new AK 550 is equipped with the “Cornering ABS,” the highest level of protection for cornering safety. It also features Traction Control System which prevents wheelspin on wet roads and uneven surfaces. Other new features include electronic throttle, cruise control, and electric windshield. The new AK550 is safer, smoother, and more comfortable than ever.

    “With the new AK 550, KYMCO is pushing the boundaries of the meaning of travel and transportation. At KYMCO, we put our customers at the center of everything we do. The launch of the new AK 550 demonstrates our continuous efforts to go above and beyond to win the hearts of consumers all over the world,” added Ko.
