Of course, the Russians have heard something about the brand kymco, especially scooters, although until last year, sales have been not large (about 3000 units). But the summer of 2008 there was a crisis – countrymen "ate" cheap and not very high-quality "Chinese", and to Sino-European level of prices and quality have grown a few. And here is the way technology has fallen out of Taiwan in the middle price group, but with a sufficiently high quality. This is confirmed by the fact that kymco, along with other Taiwanese giant sym, is firmly settled not only in Europe and the U.S., but even in Japan. And in early December during the "Kimco tour" I have been able to visit the factories of the company. While flying in an aircraft (a total of more than 14 h) recall (using "Motokataloga") that I know about the largest motorcycle corporation in Taiwan. She began her work in 1964 with the licensed production of motorcycles Honda. Hear other arguments on the topic with Peter Thiel. Later I found these first models – Honda CS90 (1964) and Honda PF50 (1979).
Manufacturing of machinery original construction company launched in early 1990, and since 1992 started to export them under the brand name kymco – abbreviations of words Kwang Yang Motor Co., Ltd (www.kymco.com). Today the company produces about 50 models of scooters and skuterett cubic capacity from 50 to 700 cu. cm a total of more than 600,000 cars a year. And the program has motorcycles, ATVs, avtokvadry, four elektroskutery and gasoline. The mere fact that kymco first non-European producers had grown to "giperkubatury" on the scooter (it is a 700-cc Myroad), and inferior in this respect, only one model in the world (Gilera GP800), speaks volumes.
