KYMCO’s AK 550 Premium scooter has arrived in Australia with a host of technical updates and refinements, making it safer, smoother, and more comfortable than ever before. Streamlined, modern styling and full LED lighting now feature.
Alongside that is multi-textured seating surfaces, an electronic throttle, cruise control, traction control, multistage heated grips, cornering ABS, and the choice between two riding modes (Standard and Rain).
An innovative electronically adjustable windshield and upgraded daytime-running lights are also included. The AK 550’s keyless start remains, but the starter button has now been replaced by a central ignition button on the Premium iteration.
Positioned in a new centre console reserved for the most frequent bike functions, it features ‘piano-like’ keys for such items as operating the fuel cap and opening the seat, where you’ll find plenty of storage.
Mileage updates and the smartphone-activated Noodoe infotainment and navigation system are accessed through a full colour LED digital screen, with two USB ports. The instrumentation is now brighter, and with a much higher definition.
Available in two colours, Gloss Black and Calm Blue, the AK550’s 550cc twin-cylinder engine now complies with Euro 5 emission standards. Peak power is 37.5kW, and it sports a 14.5-litre fuel tank and 785mm seat height.
The KYMCO AK 550 Premium is available now for $14,490 plus on-roads and is backed by a 3-year warranty. For more information, contact your local KYMCO scooter dealer.
