The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to announce that powersports distributor KYMCO USA will provide scooter demo rides at the fifth AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference, presented by Harley-Davidson
. The conference will take place in Keystone, Colo., Aug. 19-22.
"KYMCO scooters are easy and fun to ride, and because they are equipped with constant velocity transmissions (CVT), they offer riders with little or no shifting experience a great opportunity to participate in the sport," said Tigra Tsujikawa, marketing and special events manager for the AMA. "We are very excited about KYMCO's presence at our conference."
The Xciting 500Ri fires up quickly and is ready to ride right away, thanks to the nicely sorted fuel injection.
The KYMCO USA scooter product line includes a wide range of models and colors, including the sporty new 500cc Xciting
. Other models range in engine size from 50-250cc, and many feature sleek European and retro styling. The Spartanburg, S.C.-based company has been on the U.S. powersports scene for more than 30 years, and today it distributes motor scooters, motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles manufactured by its parent company in Taiwan.
Registration for the fifth AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference, presented by Harley-Davidson and Buell, costs $165 through Aug. 3. Registration after Aug. 3 (and any on-site registrations) will cost $185. The registration fee includes a commemorative t-shirt, and admission to all seminars as well as opening ceremonies on Aug. 19, a barn dance on Aug. 20, the International Street Party on Aug. 21 and a closing banquet on Aug. 22.
